  1. Cybertruck vs F-150 Ownership Cost Comparison

    I think there is a good chance Cybertruck will last 2x longer than a similar gas or diesel. The trimotor is a beast as well, so you get more truck vs anything you can compare it too .. and you have to give it some value for that. My math shows a savings in fuel and operating at over $50,000...
  2. Fiery deaths?

    I guess you didn’t read the analysis on this. The fire department put the fire out in 2-3 minutes then simply monitored the site to douse hot hots after that. Basically some bad actors blew up a tragic accident into a Tesla story. The car was not self driving and could not have been self...
  3. Elon: Cybertruck will not have door handles!

    Or maybe it will use facial recognition. I would think eliminating the handle would reduce this issue since the mechanism would not be exposed to the ice. I guess we will see.
  4. Polestar crash

    ... and horses.
  5. [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS] "White House considers vehicle mileage tax to fund infrastructure"

    I’m going to jump on you over your tribal comment. Please just stop it. Tribalism has to go. Focus on the issue. How do we appropriately tax to support infrastructure. We need evidence-based and rational thought .. not tribal BS. Sorry for the rant but our country is dying over this BS.
  6. Mud removal advantage

    With 120/240 power onboard the CT .. a regular electric washer should be fine too.
  7. Tesla Cybertruck is Really Efficient! [Nxt Garage Analysis]

    A good rule is 1/3 the cost of gasoline if you are refuelling at home. Solar is a separate issue entirely and the economics depends on your site (orientation, shading, structure) and local utility rates and rules.
  8. First Cybertruck Deliveries Will Be Early 2022 - Per Email to Reservation Holders Pushing For Leasing of Other Teslas

    How did that work out for you? I don’t mean to be mean .. but you really can’t make short-term predictions with stocks. Ask any short.
  9. 'Experts' Still Predicting Cybertruck Will be a Cyber-Flop (Video)

    I have a rather different take. I have always owned trucks btw. 1. The competition’s trucks by 2022 are more expensive by far and less capable, and the sweet spot in the truck market is 6.5 foot box crew-cabs. Exactly what CT is and the competition isn’t. 2. World economy. During a...
  10. Ride The Lightning podcast source says tri-motor Cybertruck will have at least 560 miles range + steering wheel has changed from prototype

    500 miles is already awesome .. 560 is just icing on the cake. I’m sure Tesla could go higher yet, but why? At some point it makes more sense to pump out more trucks instead of increasing battery size further.
  11. CyberTruck vs Rivian on Battery Tech?

    I agree. The gas-heads probably don’t even realize what they are missing. If I wanted an off-road dedicated truck, and value wasn’t an issue, I’d buy a Hummer over the Rivian. If I wanted a capable all-around EV truck, Cybertruck is the only choice.
  12. The sweet sound of an engine

    Noise is inefficiency and it is annoying. Why would anyone want to annoy the people around them .. other people certainly do not want to hear you ‘roar’ .. beyond what is required for safety of course.
  13. First look at Tesla’s new battery cell produced in-house with Roadrunner

    Agree 100% .. my expectation is Tesla releases a few different batteries. The new leaked batteries are likely just for Semi and Plaid cars. M3/Y will get Lithium iron cells with a million mile duty cycle maybe and a price drop once implemented ... or something like that.
  14. Tesla repair experience from current owners

    Nothing but good experiences for me. Love mobile repair too!
  15. Clickbait or valid prediction? "Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Ford's Demise Towards Bankruptcy"

    In my experience, it is people who do not have much experience with EVs that are worried about range, refuelling, etc., Sounds like you want to gain some experience .. so that is awesome. I think once you experience the EV lifestyle you will have more confidence in Cybertruck meeting your...
