Issue 220 - First 4680s in the hands of customers


4680

2022 Made In Austin Tesla Model Y 📹
Here is a walkaround of one of the first customer-owned Standard Range AWD Model Y.

Model Y AWD with 4680 cells supercharging 📷
With the battery at 9% it was pulling over 200 kW but went down fast and it kept at 80kW when the battery was at 50%. The Twitter speculation says that  Tesla is testing where the limits of the 4680 are and, as they understand more, they will unlock faster charging via software.

FSD

FSD Beta expected to get better on roundabouts
In a response to a video from our friend John from TOSV, Elon said that they are going deep on roundabouts and that FSD Beta should get noticeably better in 10.13.

Tesla registers a new high-resolution radar unit with FCC
Tesla eliminated the radar from most of their cars because, according to them, it creates confusion in the system, false positives, and it's just not needed. Last week, Tesla registered a new high-resolution radar with the FCC, and some speculation indicates that this can be part of the future Hardware 4.0 for Autopilot. High-resolution radars have the same benefits as radar, but with a higher resolution, they can be used in a way similar to LiDAR. What do you think, will Tesla continue vision only?
