Same for me. I placed my reservation as soon as Elon Musk said "you could order now if you would like", I ordered my CT and I am still about 10k th in line. What sold for me is an EV (CT) with 500+ range, stainless steel, reasonable price (tri-motor for me), unique, from Tesla, Made In The USA.
Not yet. If Tesla going to create a lot of jobs for Texas they will open up and will accept build, buy and sell. If not, big lose for the people. It's not the people who oppose to Tesla, it's the oil company who lobby the law. Tesla will bring jobs and greener air to the state.
I love to have this million miles battery and in my CT. Wow! an EV (CT) that will last a lifetime (at least mine that is). I never thought this tech could come so fast. I missed the boat on Tesla stock but will cheer them on the side line. Go Tesla!!!
I was predicting or speculation base on what I have found out. You could see Tesla website does say 500+. They knew what will come and that is a clue. We will see though. I hoping like many CT potential buyer, the more the better. I have big plan for my CT when it at hand.
I remembered this:
MS Long range from 345 to 373, increased by 28 miles (8%)
M3 long range from 310 to 322, increased by 12 miles (4%)
MY long range from 280 (original est. should be at 300)* to 315, increased by 35 (15)* miles, WOW (12.5%) (5%)*
CT Tri-Motor from 500+ to 562 (525 with...
Here is my thought. The tri-motor CT got $139/mile/lifetime usage of 500,000 miles = .000278 cent. That is a bargain.
I estimated the CT will have a 180 kWh battery. 3 miles per kWh. CT will have about 540 (or more) miles range.
The long range is not for everyone but for me I preferred. I would use my CT as an expedition/adventure vehicle. I will add a custom extended camper to match the design and massive 1200 watts solar charger. It's going to be great!
After seeing all other car design except for the M1 tank. To me they look dated. Cybertruck is the superior design. Notice how the other car used curves for exterior structure, make them look not appealing to me anymore.
Every other car maker criticized Tesla because they could not imagine the current result. They don't admitted from beginning because they wanted Tesla to fail. Now they just trying to minimize the embarrassment. Consequences for ignored the future.
