My entire point was exactly that: it’s a dock, what more can you expect?You are letting emotion get in the way of what actually happens - Bristol has a dedicated area to charge the cars for handover as it’s, like, not a dock. The fact they are on a ship for weeks is why they arnt fully charged intentionally to help reduce long term calender aging. I’ve read multiple things where people are disappointed by how full the battery isn’t.
I don’t need to expect anything, I know how cars are shipped with 12V disconnected and no parasitic load. You’ll be surprise when the cars shipped with 60% SoC turn up at dealers with 60% battery… amazing huh.
Seems the pedestrian warning is lacking even that Richard Symonds aswell as his mate Serge nearly got hit. But then I actually watched the video.
Just all a bit of a yanky doodle “exciting event” conned people to collect a car on my view. Zero clarity of what it was which amounted to a similar experience of a budget airline boarding and having to walk to the bus to get on the plane. Again my opinion so please don’t spend anymore effort trying to “correct” me.
Every Tesla leaves the factory with 90% charge. Should they disconnect the 12v system before shipping? Absolutely, but then have you seen how much work that would be for what is essentially a “collect it the moment it lands” event.
I also watched the video… how do you know the pedestrian warning is lacking? Because a red Model Y got within 10ft of Serge. You don’t know what warning tones went off inside the cab of that vehicle, but it looked to me like the driver saw Serge anyway.
As it happens I’m not a fan of the big fanfare events but any excuse to knock someone other than JLR eh
