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

    I saw a report earlier today, that said the Hummer weighs over 4.5 tons at 9046 lbs! 🐷

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    The Lightning was seen in the background at Biden's speech today, as I suspected the body appears to be the same with some styling differences to the front end.

    Lift kit for Cybertruck?

    Turns out, in the linked article, that the insurance company reviewed their denial and reversed course, paying for the claim.

    Lift kit for Cybertruck?

    I guess I've never heard of an insurer doing those things mentioned and I've been active on several popular truck forums for years (probably decades now😄).

    Lift kit for Cybertruck?

    I'm not aware besides emissions and some lights. If you lift and put wider tires you might have to alter/add mud flaps, I guess? The aftermarket is alive and well for trucks. I don't expect that to change much.

    Rivian’s electric truck features include air compressor and AC outlets

    Having AC outlets isn't exactly ground breaking. My 12 year old Ram has one... It does sound like they will be more powerful than the one in my Ram, so that's a plus.

    Flat towing Cybertruck?

    Doubtful, since we really don't know much more than we did almost 2 years ago.

    Who Plans on Towing? And What is Their Plan?

    Regen should help keep speeds down with the downhill side. I will assume the truck can tow anything up a hill on a road within it's tow capacity. Until there are actually some in drivers hands, we won't really know.

    My F150 just reminded me why I want the CyberTruck

    The 5.4 is known to blow the plugs, if I'm not mistaken! That stinks! Glad you made it home.

    Cybertruck as a tow vehicle

    Charge me only an $8k premium, and you got a deal!

    Cybertruck as a tow vehicle

    Boats are amongst the most forgiving to tow, due to aerodynamics. Towing a travel trailer or enclosed cargo trailer will exact a significant penalty in efficiency/range. I'm surprised this is a surprise to anyone that tows? It is not uncommon for me to lose 40-50% mpg in an ICE, towing a...

    Cybertruck production gets closer as Gigafactory Texas shifts to 24/7 construction

    Every indication is they made their "first dry in" benchmark. There are buildings (parts of the larger building?) That are roofed and enclosed and manufacturing equipment is being installed.

    Rumor: There will be no single motor Cybertruck! RWD model will be dual motor.

    The title to this thread says: "Rumor..." That says all you need to know. So any answer to your question, will just be conjecture on a rumor. Not exactly reliable...

    Does anyone else hope the funky hubcaps / wheel covers aren't in the final design?

    I don't mind the hubcaps for everyday use (on road for me), as long as they are easily removeable for going offroad, it would be bearable. I don't particularly like how far out toward the tire tread, the cap goes, I see it would be easy to come into contact with a curb when parallel parking...

    CyberTruck production start date = April 2022

    Isn't the new Model S imminent? That sheet days 6-2022. Unless I know their track record with Tesla (or non-big 3 manufacturers), I will hold their info with the value I paid for it. $0.00

    Fiery deaths?

    There has to be some universally applied "solution"? If it comes out that they did something reckless and intentionally overrode safety measures, do we still have to imprison everyone in their room so they can never get in a car accident?

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

    I'm not assuming the stall is the same width as the ones next to it, since the info states that only 4 of the 12 stalls is extra wide.

    Fiery deaths?

    What glitch are you speaking of?

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

    It looks to me like the charger is between the parking spaces, not directly behind the Tesla.

    What is this in the CyberTruck bed?

    Looks like there are 2 slots on the reveal truck, you can make them out on the right side. On the left side, that picture doesn't go far enough back to show it. It would be just out of frame.
