Looks like different 19" tires for the Premium and California Route 1 editions. Both are 225/55 but it's Michelin vs. Bridgestone.

It was also nice to see clarification in pictures that the European and US MMEs come with different charging ports. It's been interesting to see how many of the vehicles going to shows in the US have the Euro ports.

Maybe. We've seen warning that the hand-built prototypes don't necessarily have the same tires as the delivered units will.

I think the narrator is mistaken about the picture he calls the Route 1's wheels. That looks like the optional "silver painted aluminum with high gloss black-painted aero cover" wheel for the Select edition from the brochure that was posted earlier (brochure):

Yeah, that could be. It's also possible that there's been a tweak in offerings since the brochure was originally published. It's fun to speculate, that's for sure!

Yes, I suppose they could have changed their minds - although the descriptions/specs for route 1 all mention 18" wheels. Every picture I've seen of the route one (including auto show shots) all have this 18" wheel:

Another "bigfoot" blurred image snipped from a photo of one of the vehicles the engineers drove home for testing. Shows a bit of the upward curve.

This design does look less likely to trap your fingers between the handle and the door.

About the charge set up, does anybody know's about charge percentage capability, like setting up a 70% charge only for example ?

Some pictures were posted in a few of these threads showing the basic charging settings on the main screen. Can't find the thread at the moment, but I know it including the ability to set charging time periods, and pretty sure it showed a charge-to-a-% setting too.

A look from the rear at the new door handles. Winglet shape more pronounced. It looks like fingers are less likely to get pinched with this design.

Learn Spanish now. It has been and will always be the most spoken language in America, and the second in the United States (a part of America). About one third of the U.S.citizens speak Spanish, since almost half of the continental territory , from Californis to North Carolina, were Spanisg lands before the English (and latter the U.S.) took them away. And several States have Spanisg names: California, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and Florida.

Or just do what a lot of people do these days: Copy the specific text in question and paste it into google translate. You should get a good enough facsimile of what was being said (if you already understand the context of the conversation).

https://translate.google.com/

Of course if its audio in a youtube video check to see if english captions are available: Google will automatically generate those as well.
