    Updated CyberTruck to be shown in a month or so says Musk!

    I think that's a bit optimistic. Tesla isn't known for landscaping around their buildings. -Crissa

    Cadillac is going electric – every new vehicle will be all-electric starting now

    Transport Evolved points out that Cadillac has strong perceived value in the domestic market, and so are smart to design their ads to continue that association. -Crissa

    Double stacked battery pack

    In the Aptera, the ultra-range does use a different shell than the normal-ranged models and loses some cargo space behind the front seats. Since it's just a slightly higher panel, it's only a two-part difference. I would assume the same for the Cybertruck; the extra battery impinges on some...

    Fiery deaths?

    Yeah, but he's our nut. There is some value in hearing these off the wall ideas, so we can be prepared with the right studies and arguments. -Crissa (There are some limits, of course, but Administrator doesn't let hazardous, eliminationist rhetoric here so we're got those bounds in place.)

    Rumor: Tesla working with 3M to custom wrap Cybertruck from the factory

    Yeah, US full-sized trucks are used in some rural parts of Japan, but not in the urban areas. They have streets reserved for different sized vehicles, down to k-cars, autocycles, motorcycles, bikes, etc. They take their space seriously. Roads are considered impositions to their property...

    New Tesla Supercharger in Texas Includes Spaces (Probably) For Cybertruck

    If you like. The cars have entertainment systems for that purpose. There are additional fees for leaving it sitting at a charger while not charging. Yes. The app notifies you live, so you can tell what speed it's charging at. It's pretty obvious when a car isn't charging. There's a cable...

    New Tesla Supercharger in Texas Includes Spaces (Probably) For Cybertruck

    Except they have the charging stand in the middle of the back of their car. It has to reach over the tail of the car to the charge port. -Crissa

    When Do We Start Seeing Some Weird EV Designs?

    We are. The Arcimoto, Aptera, things like this delivery unit... Lotsa stuff happening. The nature of our safety laws have kept many designs from being considered... Hence Tesla's sedans but with nothing up front. They did put seats where the trunk would be on an ICE vehicle. -Crissa

    Consumer Interest in Tesla Cybertruck Stronger Than GMC Hummer EV and F-150 EV, According to Study

    Car prices, for the same equipment, go down over time. Not up. -Crissa

    Double stacked battery pack

    One of the articles at release had a more detailed look inside, and they reported that the reason for the Tri-motor double range was in fact, a double-layer battery pack.

    New Tesla Supercharger in Texas Includes Spaces (Probably) For Cybertruck

    Nothing particularly stops someone from kicking the charging port off. Or cutting it. Or, well, damaging it. -Crissa

    Double stacked battery pack

    The casting isn't the floor pan. But yes, we have no idea how they'd solve this. It may be the double pack extends down between the axles, and so there would be more empty space under the single-motor version. This is true no matter whether there are stacked packs. I don't see it as an...

    China Cybertruck owner-Does anyone know the development progress of Tesla 8000t die casting machine?

    I do not currently have a truck, I will use it to carry groceries, building supplies (my house is a fixer-upper), and road trips (and camping). I do need a vehicle to carry my motorcycle. -Crissa

    Window breakers (to escape drowning) would they work on a ct?

    There will be (and is required to be) an emergency manual release lever in the door. This is in all other Tesla cars currently. Yes, a striker point will probably break the glass, but then you'd have to wedge it out of the frame, as their projected designs are laminated. -Crissa

    Will Dual Motor Cybertruck Have 4680 Cells?

    They have not said their targets. Their first known target was 5k/week Model 3 in 2018; they project capacity to make 1370 of them and Model Y per at at the Fremont factory. So we know ramp up will take awhile. How much of awhile we don't know. But 10k/week in 2023 is not out of the...

    Washington State Plans to Ban Sales of Gasoline Cars after 2030

    If you don't mandate it, they don't add it to their plans. That's why bathrooms and electricity are mandated. -Crissa

    Also, the Prius is a line of vehicles, not just some underpowered sedan. It comes in many flavors. And the Prime variant is basically the same arrangement of parts that made the RAV4 Prime. There is no need for the Prius to go away for other hybrids - because the budget and size that it comes...

    Yoke Steering Wheel in S, X Cybertruck. NHTSA says, ‘What you talking ‘bout, Elon?!”

    That's just a technique. One that doesn't work if you're backing using mirrors or cameras anyhow. And will be unnecessary with driver aids. Also, I'm dyslexic (I invert things randomly) so no, it doesn't help me. -Crissa
