Good news :
Cybertruck will have 800 + volt architecture. Not current 400 V ( Along with Semi, as the maximum possible fast charging will be a commercial imperative)
Bad news :
Confirmation of this, along with other specifications, likely delayed due to concern over Osborne effect.
Thank you for posting the tables.
But now its been changed again, and confirmed the full size Cybertruck is to be about 3% smaller, Is it now a 6 ft x 54.5" bed or is it still 6.5ft x 57" ??
P.S. Cybertruck has been removed from the U.S. website.
Yes, I totally agree with you here.
So given that obvious immediate benefit of much faster charging times.
And given its inevitable that they will move to this hi voltage Architecture,
lets see what conclusions can be easily deduced from all the facts we know so far.
For instance given the...
Yes it can, you just also need to strap a team of Huski's to it.
Elon just announced on twitter that he’s donating $100 mil. towards a prize in a competition.
How Effing great is that, just brilliant. He is a benevolent genius who deserves all the kudos and admiration of people everywhere...
Considering many new EV's are now running 800 V or 900 Volt architecture, does anyone know when or whether Tesla will move from 400 v to an 800 v architecture ?
How easy or not the transition will be ?
E.G. Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, VW, Lucid, GM, Ford, etc etc etc.
How will the Tesla...
Original Cybertruck is coming out with a Bronx Edition, 4mm (not 3mm) thick exoskeleton.
And the Wolverine Cybertruck is offered with the Zombie Apocalypse package.
Sneak Peak : Wolverine Cybertruck ( with light camouflage ) captured during testing in Arizona ;).
Or just a lost Tesla...
" Range drops by 40% " in cold weather
" Range drops by 17% " in hot weather
Note : Other factors combine to drop the range significantly further.
Hence why its very easy to have EV's range reduce all the way down to 20% when towing a moderate load !
Results below are with using the same trailer, but the F150 is carrying a 20% bigger load inside it.
(6000 lbs vs 5000 lbs)
To put it politely, This simple table shows the range reduction while towing is severe for an EV and will be worse for the Cybertruck. And the range reduction is worse...
I think you will find that John is actually a fan of E.V's, confirms he drives an EV, is complimentary of Tesla car's performance and is accurate about Tesla's sales success as selling 1 in 6 EV's.
And is hopeful about EV's future growth.
John : " If over the next 10 years EV's grow tenfold...
There is zero news value in this article (Teslarati 30/12/20).
In fact its wrong !
Seems Teslarati just Kool-aid distributing.
The Article that Reuters put out in October confirmed Panasonic has acknowledged it was building 4680 pilot production lines in 2020, not waiting for 2021 !
It's longer than 2 weeks or so, but definitely shorter than 2 months or so . . . . . .
Especially when 2 months or so, is also defined as ' next year ' ! ;)
But if you have been promising timeframes and breaking them by years, I think its to be expected that alas, disappointingly, there is...
Yes, quite true, the amount of negatives that relate to Longer Range.
Thats why we want : More Range, Less Weight, and oh, for Less Cost.
But for now, what ever the state of those 3 variables is, the really important thing is,
NOT TO MISREPRESENT REALITY.
Don’t lie about how low actual range...
That is a great line, and I couldn't agree with you more.
And that's why beauty is also in the eye of the beholder.
When you and I see the Cybertruck, we see beautiful 3mm thick (unique, outside military) exoskeleton others see plain ugly.
But not everybody sees what you and I see, and there is...
The Model T was a phenomenal success, and I may desire one, and pay big bucks for it today for what it nostalgically represents.
But it has absolutely not remotely, stood the test of time. It failed it a long long time ago.
Thankfully there has been much improvement since then, functionally...
Firstly lets define a couple of benchmarks ,and one that is the issue that is at the heart of Frank’s criticism.
The Cybertruck's Success will be defined by Sales Demand.
The Designers focus is Aesthetics, after desired minimum function is included. ie. Is it Ugly or Not.
Will it Date quickly...

To put it politely, have you been innocently wrong or actively deceitful !

Hey Guitar Lunatic, thank you for posting.
I think its a considered review from a great authority, with a number of hugely iconic design success’s. The assessment and his criticism is spot on.
The Cybertruck is exceedingly successful at its utilitarian objective.
And to me it has design /...
