    Battery Pack Teardown Photos Reveals Empty Spaces (Sandy Munro Live)

    I am not going to spend $350k on a car. But I would pay $15k more than the "standard" model for a decent increase in range. For me, it isn't about range anxiety. I just don't like being forced to stop. I want to stop when I want to stop, not when I have to stop. I want to be able to drive as...

    Battery Pack Teardown Photos Reveals Empty Spaces (Sandy Munro Live)

    I would be very happy wirh 430 miles at highway speeds. I believe only the Lucid Air GT can do it as of today - using the smaller wheels (which don't look as nice). Edit: I forgot about the Silverado WT, but I doubt it can at 80 mph. Which is my typical highway speed. We need significantly...

    Battery Pack Teardown Photos Reveals Empty Spaces (Sandy Munro Live)

    I understand your points, but I am referring to a trip away from home. I also hate stopping for gas and it is very annoying when you leave the house on an errand and realize you have to get gas first. Absolutely refueling at home with electricity is better. But when on a trip, I only want to...

    Battery Pack Teardown Photos Reveals Empty Spaces (Sandy Munro Live)

    I am familiar with how well ICEVs travel. I want a BEV that goes as far on the highway as a typical ICEV. My wife's Jeep Grand Cherokee can go 500+ miles between refueling stops on the highway. Why do I have to settle for less in a BEV? Plugging and charging is very nice, but really not...

    That is a really low bar. Maybe that explains why I disagree with you regarding the importance of range?

    Cybertruck is inductive charging ready! Battery connector harness spotted in Service Manual

    I think inductive charging without any user action needed is a game changer. I hate that phrase, but it is the best way to describe it. If Tesla can actually release a pad that allows people to charge without plugging in, my wife might actually get a BEV. Seriously. There are early adopters...

    Tested: Cybertruck's Closed Tonneau Adds 25 Miles of Range at 75 MPH (by Car and Driver)

    I agree - the pain will go down once I get my adapter. But still - I don't want to be forced to stop, and even the SC locations might not be where I actually want to stop. Sure, I can do it. Sure, I can use strategies like yours to improve trip speed. But it is still light years away from...

    Tested: Cybertruck's Closed Tonneau Adds 25 Miles of Range at 75 MPH (by Car and Driver)

    I have been driving a BEV since 2021. I understand what you are talking about. I just don't agree. I don't want to stop more frequently, and I don't want to stop only where there is a DCFC station. But I have no choice if I want to make it to my destination. I have stopped at many Walmart...

    Tested: Cybertruck's Closed Tonneau Adds 25 Miles of Range at 75 MPH (by Car and Driver)

    It matters to me, on a trip away from home. I don't like being forced to stop every 200 miles.

    Disabling PWS Pedestrian Warning Sound?

    I got into a big debate with people about this on the Mach-e forum. Proponents provided a sudy that showed a higher low speed pedestrian accident rate in cities with hybrids compared with ICEVs. However, when you dig into the data and the assumptions made, the conclusions fall apart IMO. There...

    Disabling PWS Pedestrian Warning Sound?

    I put a volume control on my Mach-e's pedestrian speaker. With it turned all the way down, it is silent. I have never had a problem with anyone not hearing my car approaching. Ever. And I have never seen a single blind pedestrian near my car in the thousands of years I have been driving. The...

    Wrapped and tinted my CyberTruck -- 3M 2080 Brushed Black Metallic & Ceramic Tint

    Could you post some high resolution photos? It looks great in the video.

    Platinum Black Wrap Cybertruck

    That's not the same truck. Mirror finish VS matte finish. And the tires/wheels are totally different.

    Cybertruck Achieved 148 Mile Range Towing a Model Y

    I understood he meant trailer towed like the test, not flat towed on the wheels. But maybe I misunderstood. CT on a trailer, charging the Y. I am sure it wouldn't work, but creative idea.

    Range for AWD Cybertruck 200-250 miles after many real world tests

    As a data point to consider: my Mach-e EPA range is 270 miles, but at 80 mph highway speeds I am lucky to get 220. I the winter, 180 miles is normal. I think Ford was more conservative than Tesla when doing EPA testing, but it isn't that far off from what is being seen with the CT. And the CT...

    Cybertruck Aerodynamics / Drag Coefficient Cd analysis by computational fluid dynamics expert

    My office is 143 miles from my house. I go there 2-3 times per month. When my parents were still alive I drove to their homes fairly regularly - 240 miles one way. My MME gets about 220 miles of range at the speed I drive on the highway when the weather is good. When the weather isn't good, I...

    Cybertruck Aerodynamics / Drag Coefficient Cd analysis by computational fluid dynamics expert

    It does to me. I probably wouldn't remove the mirrors, but I would look to put low rolling resistance all seasons on. Everyone has their priorities.

    Cybertruck Range: Losing the Story

    I'm only part of the problem if having a carbon footprint is a problem. It isn't. I am disappointed we don't have a 500 mile range CT, but not surprised. If you go back a few months to one of my few and far between posts, you will see I was saying the CT will be similarly priced or more than...
