    GM to launch Hummer EV with splashy World Series and social media ad blitz next week

    I'm very curious to see it. I like the open top option -- kinda Jeep like and had one of those for 7 years.

    Can we expect the Cybertruck in 2021 -- What's your opinion?

    I'm a little concerned with the number of folks that are indicating that this is a 'much' more expensive vehicle than they would normally buy, but saying they plan to 'keep it till they die'... unless you are 70+, I think that is not very likely and definitely not good for your financial...

    Can we expect the Cybertruck in 2021 -- What's your opinion?

    Everyone uses terms like 'quirky' or 'different' when describing Elon Musk. The one that doesn't get enough attention is 'competitive'. It was, what, 1 week before the Plaid S was pushed out to beat the Lucid on time and distance... I think he wants to be the first with an electric pickup...

    Starlink capabilities?

    The congestion refers to too many connections to the satellite that would happen in a more populated area, not the number of people... just to clarify. I think that's what you meant, but just in case. I've been following Starlink for some time and at no time has Elon indicated that the service...

    Starlink capabilities?

    As someone that lives semi-rurally (only about 10 minutes from a city) and has very limited Internet options, I hope Starlink goes to rural residential before being used in cars. I had DSL speeds up until about 6 months ago and now have barely better ptp wireless service. Working from home is...

    Tri-motor vs Quad-motor or Hub-motor

    Probably why the Lordstown truck's top speed it 80MPH.

    Cybertruck FSD brain

    I think in both cases, its much less about 'tracking' and more about using the tracking info for coercion. Watch 'the social dilemma' on Netflix if you haven't already... ** puts on tinfoil hat, goes to secret underground bunker, and loads shotguns ** /s

    California Bans Sale of New Gasoline-Powered Passenger Vehicles Starting 2035

    Maybe the best solution for V2H with the CT is an 'aftermarket' add-on using the power outlets provided in the bed. As far as I know, California is the only state that has this emergency need for power created by the rolling blackouts ( I know there are other emergency scenarios like storms...

    California Bans Sale of New Gasoline-Powered Passenger Vehicles Starting 2035

    Once ICE car numbers decline and gas sales decline, where are the states/feds going to get that tax revenue? The cost of each gallon of gas includes a considerable percent of tax revenue. For example, in MO, each gallon of gas includes 17.42 cents of state tax and 18.40 cents of federal tax...

    New BEV Truck - Hercules Alpha

    That site seems a little suspect and the rendering quality is terrible... looks like a high school graphics class project. Hope it's legit, though. More competition is always good.

    Does everyone believe FSD will be viable in the next 3 years? 5 years? 10 years?

    I love the idea of FSD for some scenarios including trips. I also have a son that may never drive, so having full FSD would provide freedom to both of us... but, without other manufacturers pushing as hard as Tesla, I wonder if/when it will truly be a fully working product. I understand that...

    Let's be honest - who disliked and/or was repulsed by the Cybertruck when they first saw it?

    Initially was a little unsure, which is why I didn't jump right in... but now, it makes all other pickups (including my Ram EcoDiesel) look dated. After I saw the estimated time until my Tri-Motor would be delivered, I thought about switching to a Rivian, but now it just doesn't look 'cool' or...

    Right, but there have never been 'in stock' vehicles that I'm aware of. An order that was cancelled or rejected, just went to the next pre-order in line... as far as I know. This indicates, maybe because of the virus/employment/economy, that several people cancelled and there aren't others...
