But the iPhone directly competed with Nokia and Motorola products. The Cybertruck does not compete with anything Ford produces.
Tesla may be considered direct competition to Ford; the Cybertruck not so much.
Conclusion: clickbait. :)
Elon first posted his poll for Texas. Now he has broadened the search.
I think initial talks with Texas went along the lines of them telling him to 'take a hike'. Could easily be wrong, but I don't think Texas is in the running anymore. :cautious:

In a way, that is true (range, anyway). At 500 miles possible range, losing 100 miles is a "so what" in many cases. Now a Leaf, with 76 miles range losing 15 miles (approx. 20%) could mean the difference between making your round trip to work or being stranded.
Range anxiety ain't what it...
Tesla historically keeps progress fairly secret. We'll know how well Gigafactory is progressing (if and when) but not vehicle production. Guesses will be available out the wazoo if that will help satisfy. :p
Oversimplification. Trucks are general purpose, meaning my needs and yours may not match. So, it is not possible to engineer it to meet both our needs.
Simple aftermarket products exist for that reason.
That was said based on earlier rollouts, but if you base it on how the Y rollout is being handled (apparently, since it hasn't happened yet) then the model you choose may be more important than region.
Looks like they want to produce a single version of the Y at first to maximize early delivery...
