What’s In The Box? Munro Reveals

So… are you ready to find out what is in the mystery box from 3 Munro live episodes ago?  If you watched Sandy’s Tesla Battery Day Follow-up video, you know that there is a cryptic package produced by Sandy at the end of the video and all are left wondering… what is in the darn box?!  Well wait no more, the day has come, the box and it’s content are the subject of this next Munro Live video.

In this episode, Sandy talks with Tracy McSheery from Sapphire Motors about literally re-inventing the wheel, or should I say the motor… Or should I say a wheel motor.  This episode covers heavily the Halbach array effect and how this can be used in the next generation of EVs.

This is a long-format interview that covers lots of ground, but if you call yourself an EV enthusiast, you won’t want to miss this episode.  No spoilers here, just watch the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eNMYHLmUlA&ab_channel=MunroLive

Sandy Munro On The The Past, Present, and Future of EVs

The Past Present and Future of EVs

Sandy Munro On The The Past, Present, and Future of EVs

In the latest installment of Munro Live, Sandy shares excerpts from a video that was made for investors in the EV world teaching them how to perceive the new course of this market by examining the past, present, and future.

There is a lot of great moments in this 22+ minute video, but definitely a quotable takeaway, as Sandy puts it, “It is not the big that eat the small, but rather the fast that eat the slow.”  This of course in response to the established car companies that are moving very slow to bring innovation to market in their new EVs.

If you are an investor and want to get an insight into how Munro views various car companies with some real-world examples, this is a must-watch for you!

Sandy’s Tesla Battery Day Follow-up Part 2

In the second installment of Sandy’s analysis of Tesla’s battery day discoveries, Sandy starts off by answering certain comments and questions from viewers and then goes into more detail about why he thinks the batteries will be a superior solution.  Sandy also reveals where the large casting came from in our last video – Invocast!

From there Sandy Goes back into history and starts talking about other projects that Munro has worked on where we have turned a corner in technology and improved a product or vehicle to the point where we changed the critic’s minds about what could be possible.

Sandy then moves into Munro’s future, working with several new electric vehicles in order to bring low cost and fun transportation solutions to the market, in the form of Arcimoto’s FUV, Aptera, and the Nobe Car.  We address issues like safety, but also cost, delivering to niche markets, and innovation in a burgeoning area of EVs.  Sandy also let’s his audience know that he is open to investors who want to be a part of the future of these vehicles, specifically the Nobe.

But perhaps most interesting of all… there is a surprise box at the end… what will it be???

Watch Sandy Make a Tesla Battery Mock-up and His Thoughts On Battery Day!

Sandy Munro Makes New Tesla Battery Mock Up

Watch Sandy Make a Tesla Battery Mock-up and His Thoughts On Battery Day!

Wow, for the Tesla fans out there (and the short sellers) you are going to find our latest video very interesting.  Inspired by the announcements made during Tesla Battery Day, Sandy takes some time out of his regular workday to create a mock-up of the newly proposed battery cells/packs to show just how much of a difference this new battery set up will be for Tesla vehicles.

If you want to find out early, some of Sandy’s predictions about how the new battery packs will be set up in the vehicle, cooled, create more power in a smaller space, and also add to the strength of the structure, then this video is your ticket to seeing some of Tesla secrets before they release them.

Then Sandy moves on to explaining the newly proposed body structure that will incorporate 2 Mega-castings (front and rear) with the battery packs creating the new center body and why this move is such a big deal in the automotive design realm.

Lastly, Sandy makes an impassioned plea to Tesla for… well you will just have to watch:

Mint Chosun Ilbo: Sandy Munro says Tesla is 8 Years Ahead

Mint which is the Economic Business Section of Chosun Ilbo (the largest newspaper and online news source in Korea) recently did a video interview with Sandy Munro.  In this no-holds-barred interview, Sandy reveals several of the shocking finds that were uncovered about Tesla’s technological prowess in the Tesla Model Y.

The reporters were blown away at the honesty and depth that Sandy Munro went into when describing his favorite finds in the Model Y including the Megacasting, the batteries and motor, as well as the overall improvements that Tesla seems to keep making with every new design iteration of their vehicles.

Tesla is 5-10 years ahead in electronics, motors, and overall the general design of these cars vs any of their competitors.  Sandy is particularly impressed with the material science and metallurgical breakthroughs that Tesla has employed.  Some of the alloys on the steel and aluminum parts are unique and never seen before by Munro in their 32+ years of business.

Sandy says that the automotive world probably can’t catch up with Tesla because they have such a head start as well as continuing to rapidly apply new design changes in their vehicles.

Many of the new ideas Tesla comes up with are hidden in plain sight by Tesla as they don’t necessarily patent everything, therefore not bringing attention to their innovations that they wish for competitors to overlook.

Does Tesla back Munro?

Does Tesla Back Munro?

Does Tesla back Munro?

In the latest Munro Live Video, Sandy talks about what will be coming up in future episodes.  Some of the things the audience can look forward to will be work we are doing with the Renault KWID as well as several prototype electric vehicles that you really don’t want to miss out on.

But let’s get down to the real question that many people seem to be asking recently… “Does Munro work for, or get paid by Tesla?”  The answer is an emphatic, “NO!”

Munro has worked with or analyzed most vehicles that have been brought to market over its 32 years of business from pretty much every automaker.  Munro has helped design, analyze, benchmark, or influenced electric vehicles going as far back as GM’s EV1. This being said, when Munro releases reports like the Telsa Model 3 or Y that are sold openly to anyone and are not paid for studies by an individual company for their R&D or product design departments, they are done on our own dollar and we give up all of the secrets that we find, the good and the bad, warts and all.

If a company pays for us to analyze or redesign a product, it is kept secret and you won’t hear about it for years if ever.  If we do a study like the Model Y, we do it on our own volition in order to sell it to a wide audience because we think it has a lot of properties or technology that the market will be interested in finding out.  It is as simple as that.

One thing Sandy Munro is not, is a shill for anyone!  What we found in the Model Y was truly impressive and beyond our initial expectations, for not only Tesla, but the EV industry in general.  Anyone that buys the report will understand once they see what we have found.  This is why we are warning the automotive market in general, that the bar has been raised and they have to get their sh*t together if they don’t want to be left in the dust.  If you are interested in buying the Model Y report, you can view the prospectus here: https://leandesign.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Tesla-Y-Sales-Document.pdf
