Thanks for pulling up that Elon Tweet; seems that a lot of people missed this point amid all the talk about dimensions.
I totally agree with you that I too want CT to be massive. Even after hearing the Rogan interview yesterday, I'm still bothered by the 3% reduction although I fully know it's...
Yeah, MT did a whole series of articles on CT that has nice little bits of info here and there.
At the moment, I have no reason to doubt the author. If I remember from the written article in MT (December 2019 or January 2020 issue??) they saw the running prototype while it was on a lift. Their...
Here's the article - https://www.motortrend.com/news/tesla-cybertruck-electric-pickup-engineering-manufacturing/
The cylinder is just over 12" in diameter. Keep in mind this is for the prototype so the production version could differ.
When Motortrend got a sneek peak of CT before the reveal, they indicated that there was a cylinder underneath the bed (similar to where the pass through is of a Rivian R1T) where the value pulled and rolled into.
I like the Rivian's trucks, especially the R1S. It seats 7 and the smaller size would make it perfect for overland. The problem is these vehicles are $20,000 overpriced compared to Tesla and are lagging on the technology side of things.
R1S would be a great compliment to my CT Plaid+ when it...
My hope is that CT will have at a minimum all of the new features in the S and X. I love the yoke steering and multiple screens (dedicated driver's and second row). It would be amazing if there ends up being a Plaid+ version too.
This is a Sports Luxury Truck for me.
I'm glad S and X has a steering yoke now and am hopeful that CT will have one too. I'm surprised about non-AI gear selection. FMVSS specs call for PRND to be electro-mechanically actuated. I don't have a full understanding of what that means in this context but either the S/X solution via...
I too prefer to keep my cars for a long time and am hoping to continue that with my CT Tri-Motor. This is why I'm grateful for 3rd party shops like:
It would be cool to have a Semi as a personal vehicle but costs aside, Class-8 licensing and operational logistics (e.g. maintenance, parking, etc...) would be interesting challenges to overcome.
Since ordering a CT, I've become more interested in off-roading / overlanding. I'm thinking of...
