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.

New York Times: Munro Says the Mega Casting is Just Spectacular

As anyone who has followed Munro’s teardown of the Tesla Model Y knows, our team has found numerous improvements over the Model 3 we tore down previously as well as a bundle of great new surprises that delight the automotive engineer and EV enthusiast alike.

One of the biggest finds was the Mega Casting which is the largest aluminum casting that our team has ever seen in all it’s 32 years of existence.  What is even more interesting is the process that pulls this off.

The New York Times just recently did a great little feature on this part of the Model Y and gave homage to Munro siting Sandy as saying, “…it is just spectacular.”  The article goes on to talk about inside information revealed to the reporter from a source at the new Tesla plant in Germany, and how Tesla is taking a new tact by replacing several costly robots that can’t keep up with giant aluminum casting machines that will produce simpler chassis parts.

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

Part 2 Now You Know – Sandy Munro can make the Cybertruck Float?

In the second installment of the “In Depth” episode of the YouTube Channel “Now You Know”, Zac and Jesse ask Sandy Munro all sort of questions probing into the even incredulous, such as, “Can the Cyber Truck be made aquatic?”  Want to know Sandy’s answers? Well you will have to watch that show.  Click here now to watch:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUiwKL7fV_I

Sandy also talks about what makes people who will buy a Cybertruck over a conventional truck different and the specific features that make it more appealing to different people’s needs.  There is also talk about Arcimoto and other Munro projects that are going on right now.  Plus… a flying car? What?

Also, just to throw it out there, our Model Y report which showcases all the leading EV technology and those suggestions Munro gave to Tesla can now be purchased. No other car we have analyzed has this many technology leaps.  One of those leaps is the Octovalve and Thermal System which is such a unique technology that we created a separate report just on it.  Also, Munro has reports on 3 EV Inverters and a comparison of 10 of the leading EV motors and the Model 3.

If you are serious about competing in the new EV world, these reports are a must-have.  Don’t be left in the dust while your competitors reap the knowledge contained in these tomes.  Reports of this type don’t exist anywhere else in the market.  Contact sales@leandesign.com for more information.

“Shocking” Cost Results Between the Tesla Model 3 and Y!

The Street - Shocking Tesla Model 3 to Model Y Costs

“Shocking” Cost Results Between the Tesla Model 3 and Y!

“The Street” wrote an article recently where they revealed to their audience Sandy Munro’s finding on the cost comparisons between these two Tesla vehicles.

“The results are shocking. There’s a big, giant difference between the cost of the Model 3 [in 2018] and this Model Y in 2020, and the cost went down significantly!” – Sandy Munro

When Munro tore down and analyzed the first releases of the Tesla Model 3 in early 2018, the first findings were less than favorable:  A fit and finish that was comparable to a Kia in the 90’s, paint peeling and abnormalities, body engineering choices that were over-engineered, cumbersome, and expensive, etc.  However, Munro did find a lot of impressive leaps in technology for the motor and the “Superbottle”, to name a few.  Sandy then assembled several ideas/recommendations for improvement on that vehicle which it appears that Tesla took to heart and implemented on their Model Y.

“We were impressed with the step-change that has occurred at Tesla and no other car company has pulled off this kind of technological and quality turn around in so short of a time!” – Sandy Munro.

And Elon Musk was watching, at first, not a fan of Munro’s criticisms on the Model 3, but after watching carefully for some time, became admittedly respectful of Munro’s engineering analysis.  Even going so far as to tweet: “Munro’s analysis of Tesla engineering is accurate, both pro & con.  I think he will appreciate some elements of the Model Y body design.”

Appreciate we did!  Many of these suggestions were implemented on the Y and resulted in a car that currently blows other EVs out of the water.  To investors though, what is most striking is that by implementing these improvements on the Model Y, they have also drastically reduced the cost of the vehicle, while still reaping a higher profit margin than on a Model 3…

Speaking of the Model Y, our Model Y report which showcases all the leading EV technology and those suggestions Munro gave to Tesla can now be purchased. No other car we have analyzed has this many technology leaps.  One of those leaps is the Octovalve and Thermal System which is such a unique technology that we created a separate report just on it.  Also, Munro has reports on 3 EV Inverters and a comparison of 10 of the leading EV motors and the Model 3.
