Pretty dramatic Tesla explosion

Almost certainly cells cooking off. Judging by the account, this was another case of Autopilot/AEB not being able to recognize a stopped vehicle in its lane, presumably after the vehicle the Tesla was pacing using ACC changed lanes.

Interesting video suggesting that the Tesla gom does change based on drivers efficiency and temperature.

Its also interesting that they suggested charging back to 90% every day, even if not really used.

I always thought charging cycles were best if less in general, over a period of years.

Also interesting that they suggested limiting super charging cycles. With the new charging speeds, guessing the cooling cant keep up with the heat.

Interesting video
Anything in particular ?
Perhaps you can summarize in a sentence or two, or point to a time index of the video. I watched for a minute and gave up.

Anyway, as I and others have pointed out multiple times, Tesla displays a SoC meter (sometimes translated into miles) all the time; and it ALSO has a destination graph that is a VERY smart GOM. People routinely call the SoC meter a GOM. It is not.

That kid can barely form sentences let alone relay information. It’s a nonsense video that is painful to watch and full of inaccuracies. Just like the majority of news items about Tesla accidents. The cooling on the 3 is exceptional to the point my pack just can’t get warm fast enough at times. All nonsense.

It's actually quite full of inaccurate information. As one commented notes, what he says at 2:50-3:10 is *wrong*.
2:50, 100% false, it is not based on your driving habits, it is based on a fixed efficiency of 242 wh/mi and battery size for the long range model.
Go here if you really want to know how to protect your battery. The 90% note is strictly to keep the BMS calibrated, it DOES wear the battery more doing this.

But, you can believe the video since (1) he backs up what you want to believe, (2) he says he got this all from an unnamed Tesla employee and (3) he makes videos on the Internet.

The video is complete nonsense. I remember Jack Ricard saying regen was not a benefit at one time. If you watch CNBC you can watch completely fabricated lies they construct about Tesla every month. Expect some twisted BS today. People should be concerned about the insane propaganda out there. This video is just a kids excited game of "Telephone".

Thanks for jumping in and dispelling the 90% charge daily. I had never heard more cycles was better for any battery.

It was expected, it was announced, but it's not planned anymore. At least not in the short term. . . .
