    Cybertruck spotted in Fremont plant

    Question for those who know production schedule better than I do: at what point with a new vehicle design do they start crash testing? Initial prototypes are the most expensive to build and my hunch is crash testing would be during a phase where this is some sense of scale production, not one-offs

    Predictions for the top 3 Cybertruck exterior modifications

    Totally agree that sunlight, moisture, and “the elements” wreck weatherstripping on most cars. Hopefully Tesla can do some material engineering to reduce/eliminate the effects

    Awesome stuff! Trajectory of Tesla as a brand has come such a long way, it will be interesting to see how it grows in the future

    Should Tesla Do Paid Advertising?

    Appreciate the perspective! ? I think Apple was better off with Jobs, as we kinda saw when he came back and got their products, advertising, and stocks back on track/to record highs n s#

    Clear look at Cybertruck touchscreen display UI showing functions and features

    I hope they do! Would minimize the eyes-off-the-road time when you check your speed, etc. Our Prius and Leaf have nicely placed speedometers, better than M3&Y

    Should Tesla Do Paid Advertising?

    The question is: what is the conversion time for a gas car driver to learn about EVs, be skeptical, research more, consider getting an EV, be influenced by ads/content/reviews while reading, narrow it down to 2-3 options, save some cash, get an electrician out to install a level 2 charger, and...

    Should Tesla Do Paid Advertising?

    Totally agree with ya — each of the above will reach a percentage of the total available market ? My guess at the saturation of all those examples? 35-45%, but that’s just me throwing a dart ?

    Should Tesla Do Paid Advertising?

    Advertising is a long-term approach. They need to advertise now to get sales in 2-5 years ? The “Tesla army” doesn’t exist in many American’s realities (e.g. the vast majority of people who don’t join future-electric-pickup owners forums like we do ?). Cable TV does though! OTT for the cord...

    Should Tesla Do Paid Advertising?

    How does everyone feel about Tesla’s shareholder vote to begin investing in paid advertising? I read the proposal was $50 per car sold. I bet Tesla’s profit per car is $5k or higher, so it’s a modest 1% of margin and ~1/1,000 of total sale value. I’m all for it. Americans need to become better...

    Washable floor?

    Ya, I think it’s a gradient: junker, mid-line 150/1500, then flashy add $20k for luxe ???
