    5 Yr timeline, EV truck market poll

    Well Tesla had successfully made both the Model S and Model X and ramped them before the Model 3 and the Model 3 ramp was a nightmare for them WITH experience. Prototypes dont mean anything as it relates to production. They are not ahead because that's how you want to perceive it. LOL

    First Cybertruck Deliveries by End of 2021 - Says Musk on Q3 Earnings Call

    No where on that brief does it state what type of material needs to be used to achieve whatever they claim "no damage" to mean. Remember we're on this topic because you stated plastic is a requirement for bumpers, because of the "no damage" requirement.

    How many are getting the solar option

    I dont think you understand what your stating. MPPT controllers cannot boost voltage beyond what your panels can put out. Additionally if you want to change straight DC to DC you still need to supply 400V DC into the car. Go find 400V panels and go find a 400V MPPT controller and price it...

    5 Yr timeline, EV truck market poll

    Where have you been reading? " Rivian purchased a former Mitsubishi factory in Normal, Illinois, and it’s in the process of retooling it to build the R1T and a technically similar SUV named R1S. Deliveries are tentatively scheduled to begin in November 2020. We say tentatively, because Rivian...

    How many are getting the solar option

    Topic is about solar charging. Stating anything other that how solar outputs vs Teslas accept power input is irrelevant.

    It states " prevent the damage to the car body and safety related equipment " not damage to the bumper. Damage is acceptable plastic is NOT required.

    How many are getting the solar option

    Tesla's charge on AC, solar is DC so you need convert DC to AC so the car can convert the AC to DC again, it's a waste. Now if you want to talk about DC charging then you need way higher voltage that what standard panels are capable of. When I looked up the DC spec I believe it 480V was what...

    How many are getting the solar option

    I just grabbed the spec from Tesla's basic charger. I couldn't quickly find specific's on the minimum the vehicle needed but yeah but Tesla's im pretty sure need to to be on pure sine wave too. There's a few youtube videos about people trying and it not working Im not sure MPPT would matter...

    How many are getting the solar option

    They would work but the amount you'd get from them would be negligible compared to the time it takes to create it. Basically the same as the solar tonneau itself... except you have to carry hella extra shi7 to make it happen. So if you want it just get the solar tonneau ;)

    How many are getting the solar option

    As mentioned previously in this thread I believe Elon stated it could have a maximum capability of 15 miles per day. Given most likely would not encounter perfect conditions all day, I'd think in normal use expecting 3-5 miles per day is reasonable. For someone like me with a 16 mile per day...

    First Cybertruck Deliveries by End of 2021 - Says Musk on Q3 Earnings Call

    Where did this come from? AFAIK there is no such spec that requires a specific material be used. There are only performance standards. MFGR's use plastic because it's cheap not because they have too. ;) Here's a digest: https://sparebumper.com/federal-bumper-standards/

    Offer to buy Tri-Motor After Delivery

    Read the fine print in the reservation. Reservations are non-transferable, non-sellable, etc. The only the original reservation maker will be allowed to take ownership. It will have to be a full purchase/registration and then resale. Tesla caught on when Model 3 reservations were being sold...

    Any warranty issue when installing my own sound system in my Cybertruck?

    My understanding is that they did have base and upgrade systems early on but have done away with it because most early buyers were upgrading and the base components were just extra inventory to track, which Elon hates, so I believe all vehicles just get the equivalent of the upgraded system now...

    Im sure they'll work it out. I can't believe that no one on the CT project at Tesla has ever seriously towed anything ;)

    Cybertruck Tire Size Options What Do You Choose?

    If it makes it to production with 35s (and I think it will) and still is capable of 0-60 in 2.9 and 500+ miles of range, then I'll stick with 35s
