Tesla Model X Range Increased?

October 14, 2020 | technology | No Comments

While most of the attention on Tesla’s vehicle lineup today was on the Model S due to a $3,000 price cut, there may be an interesting development happening for the Model X as well. Tesla Motors Club forum member ColdWeatherEV recently took delivery of a brand new Model X and shared some details about the vehicle in a post on the forum.

“I just took delivery of a 2021 Model X, VIN 308XXX, and I was surprised to see that the EPA Monroney sticker lists the range at 371 miles,” writes the user. The Monroney sticker is a required label in the US for all new vehicles and contains official information about the car.

On Tesla’s website, the currently-listed EPA range for the Long Range Plus Model X is just 351 miles, 20 miles lower than the range listed on the Monroney sticker of this new delivery. While this is

Combining genetic and experimental data into models about the influenza virus can help predict more accurately which strains will be most common during the next winter, says a study published recently in eLife.

The models could make the design of flu vaccines more accurate, providing fuller protection against a virus that causes around half a million deaths each year globally.

Vaccines are the best protection we have against the flu. But the virus changes its appearance to our immune system every year, requiring researchers to update the vaccine to match. Since a new vaccine takes almost a year to make, flu researchers must predict which flu viruses look the most like the viruses of the future.

The gold-standard ways of studying influenza involve laboratory experiments looking at a key molecule that coats the virus called haemagglutinin. But these methods are labour-intensive and take a long time. Researchers have focused

Apple will sell more units of the “iPhone 12” than any other from the 2020 refresh, according to TF Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, with the 6.1-inch model expected to make up around 40% of shipments at launch.

Two days ahead of Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event, where it is anticipated to launch four new models of iPhone, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has offered predictions for the new models in a note to investors. According to Kuo, the standard “iPhone 12” will be the highest-selling of the four.

Kuo’s shipment predictions put the other three models, the “iPhone 12 mini,” the “iPhone 12 Pro,” and the “iPhone 12 Pro Max” at having a 20% allocation each of total shipments. The remainder, 40%, would be allocated to the “iPhone 12” by default.

In the note, seen by AppleInsider, Kuo believes the compact 5.4-inch “iPhone 12 mini” will be the cheapest

The used EV has arrived.

It was only nine years ago that the first won’t-break-the-bank electric cars arrived.

Those non-Tesla EVs — like the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt — weren’t priced at $80,000 like the Model S and the first- and second- generations of those cars have been hitting the used car market over the last several years.

And with a Long Range 2020 Tesla Model 3 starting at about $47,000, “dirt cheap” for an EV is anything under $20,000.

A couple of the better sites for used EVs are MYEV and CarGurus.

Most of the used EVs cited below are first- and second-generation electrics that were sold roughly between 2011 and 2017.

Note: all prices are based on a used vehicle
