  1. Tesla’s Elon Musk highlights Cybertruck’s uniqueness, explains adoption of yoke

    Absolutely, we all have different opinions, personally I find the lack of stalks less of an annoyance than the shape of the wheel. We were having a civil discussion until Futureboy started with the insults and Haulingass got all heated. The lower the speed the greater the steering angle...
  2. Tesla’s Elon Musk highlights Cybertruck’s uniqueness, explains adoption of yoke

    The onboard footage on the other hand does. Either way I wasn't implying that a yoke shouldn't be offered but rather a regular steering wheel should, for those that prefer function over form.
  3. Tesla’s Elon Musk highlights Cybertruck’s uniqueness, explains adoption of yoke

    What a bunch of snowflakes. I'm simply disproving the all too common theory that because an F1 steering is shaped that way then it somehow validates it's use for road cars. Maybe next time try not to talk about things you clearly have no idea about and then maybe someone won't contradict you.
  4. Tesla’s Elon Musk highlights Cybertruck’s uniqueness, explains adoption of yoke

    That may be the case for you but the vast majority of people do at least a few of these things on a regular basis: 3-point turns, u-turns, parallel parking, backing in & out of parking spots. I never said they don't have serious turns, I said they do not have turns with steering angles that...
  5. Tesla’s Elon Musk highlights Cybertruck’s uniqueness, explains adoption of yoke

    That's an argument I've heard before and frankly it's quite silly, they are shaped that way because large steering angles are practically never required. Hand over hand turning is not something they are concerned about, you are not going to be doing 3-point turns or parallel parking in an F1 car.
  6. GIGA TEXAS size is 😱🤯

    Was going to try and do Giga Berlin for comparison but unfortunately the sat view is outdated.
  7. Fold down entrance to the bed from the cabin

    In the Jay Leno drive it was closed, not that it means anything per se, but despite that it had plenty of light coming in thanks to the "greenhouse".
  8. Vault pass through access determines purchase?

    Not a deal breaker but a proper mid gate (not a pass through) would be really welcome. EDIT: There's also this tweet from Elon which is more recent: Unlike the proposed render I'd also be fine with the window portion staying fixed and just the steel portion folding.
  9. Fold down entrance to the bed from the cabin

    I have to disagree, I see the CT predominantly as a closed bed vehicle with the possibility of having an open bed when needed (i.e. cargo that would otherwise not fit with the bed closed). Primary reason being range but also keeping cargo covered from weather and from being stolen.
  10. Fold down entrance to the bed from the cabin

    You could load gravel/bark from the side if the horizontal reach of whatever is loading it is greater than 38", side access is already prevented by the sail pillars for most other applications (e.g. tossing firewood/junk). None are insurmountable issues since everything that can be...
  11. Fold down entrance to the bed from the cabin

    I was thinking about a split cargo bay door design for the bed. Somewhat reminiscent of the Space Shuttle and possibly Starship depending on what design they settle on. Would be super cool as it would further strengthen the connection between Cybertruck and Starship given they already use the...
  12. Perhaps they could produce a smaller Cybertruck, given how well the truck is accepted

    When I say the vast majority it refers to the make up of the reported F-series sales, to put a number I'd say at least 3/4's will be F-150's. So that's roughly x2 the amount of Tacoma's sold by Toyota in a period where they've had significant production issues. No, Toyota hasn't faced...
  13. Perhaps they could produce a smaller Cybertruck, given how well the truck is accepted

    Right, but my point is full-size vs mid-size truck sales not Ford vs Toyota or any other manufacturer. You are right in that Ford does not report F-150 sales on their own, just cumulative F-series numbers but as already mentioned the vast majority will be F-150's. Yes, Toyota as a whole would...
  14. Perhaps they could produce a smaller Cybertruck, given how well the truck is accepted

    Ford F-series production has been hit pretty heavily by the semiconductor shortage AFAIK. Still, 414k vs 162k is a significant difference, I know it encompasses all F-series truck sales but the F-150 makes up the lion's share. I'm also not seeing any Chevy or RAM trucks in that list so it's...
  15. Real Life Cybertruck Photos Compilation (No renders please)

    I find the head-on view and front 3/4 view the most endearing, from those angles it looks phenomenal. However I also do think that when viewing the sides and rear straight-on it looks kinda ugly, at least in photos. Parking it on stage during the presentation with that flat side view didn't do...
  16. Cybertruck takeaways from AI Day: coming in about a year & getting upgraded AI hardware for FSD

    HW4, as Elon stated during the AI day Q&A, will ship with new cameras. This matches with the rumor of a deal with Samsung: https://insideevs.com/news/519820/tesla-samsung-camera-deal-cybertruck/
  17. Cybertruck takeaways from AI Day: coming in about a year & getting upgraded AI hardware for FSD

    I hope I'm wrong but I don't see how it can be less than a year. James summed it up nicely: Also retrofitting cameras is just not going to happen, far too labor intensive.
  18. This may be Cybertruck's 2B stainless steel. Updated Scratch and Sniff* test.

    You're misunderstanding, what he's saying is they are moving away from the standard 304L to their own brew for SpaceX's Starship and that the Cybertruck will also be moving away from 304L to that same SpaceX stainless steel.
