  1. Tesla Engineer Saying No to Europe

    In the Top Gear article, Lars Moravy, VP of Engineering, seems to strongly hint that it will not come to Europe. The reason being that apparently European regulations require corner radius for edges to be such that is not possible with thick stainless steel...
  2. So any new hints at international presence?

    I think they are targeting full production for 2025, but with some ramp next year (100K or so). While mathematically it does indeed take years to reach a million from there, that’s assuming everyone on the reservation list makes the purchase as soon as their number is called. Also historically...
  3. So any new hints at international presence?

    Delivery day will soon be upon us. Anyone put together any juicy speculation about availability outside the US? We have seen one driving in Canada, but I believe that was on Californian plates. Before that, New Zealand testing and Mexico, potentially Iceland (or has that been fully debunked?)...
  4. ‘Around the world’

    Those measurements aren’t right. The Cybertruck is much smaller than that. Having said that it is definitely a long vehicle for many markets. Rumour is around 5.7m. The width is also a tad awkward but roughly in line with large SUVs and vans. Many largeish vans are also as long or longer, but...
  5. ‘Around the world’

    It’s a fair point that it may be available in Canada and Mexico even if they don’t sell it in Europe or other countries. So-called full size trucks are extremely rare here, and grey imports at least in Finland (I did see one Lightning). Pickups in general aren’t common, even as work vehicles...
  6. ‘Around the world’

    Yes, initially reservations were open globally, and I have one. Currently they are not. They closed them down internationally but it was quite some time after the launch (a year or so after), so it’s unclear how to read that. If they came out and said openly that international isn’t happening...
  7. ‘Around the world’

    They did say explicitly ‘many countries’ and ‘certification’. As mentioned I am most likely reading too much into it, and they are just using those words for abstract hype. Still, they caught me as interesting phrases to use.
  8. ‘Around the world’

    Except that they explicitly mentioned certification.
  9. ‘Around the world’

    Yes, that explains being in NZ. But New Zealand is hardly ‘many countries’, or ‘for certification’.
  10. ‘Around the world’

    Tesla recently said they are testing Cybertruck vehicles around the world for final certification and validation. I am most certainly reading too much into that quote, but it struck me as a bit odd at the time and perhaps could get your thoughts. Is there any reason that certification would...
