    Single motor cybertruck

    I decided to go with the dual motor for 2 main reasons 1) Handling characteristics for rear wheel drive pickups on slick surfaces are always bad. I know the battery pack helps equalize the weight distribution but the rear end of the Cybertruck will not be as heavily loaded as the front when the...

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

    Ever try backing up a trailer without putting your left hand on top of the steering wheel? This is a truck. It needs to be able to do truck work. If a yoke is the only option, this will require some other system for backing a trailer.

    Purchase Sight Unseen...?

    Good point. I've never purchased a car or truck without a test drive first for exactly this reason. I don't hear the word Ergonomics mentioned very much anymore regarding automobiles and that is a shame. I will point out that the steeply raked windshield on the Cybertruck at the reveal...

    Study reveals EV secret: They are driven less than gas cars

    I don’t think that study tells us anything. I don’t live in California. My 2014 Model S just turned 7 years old. It has over 101k miles. Avg. miles per year, 14,505. We drive it like a regular car and take it on trips from the San Antonio area to Dallas and back using primarily the Supercharger...

    Who's planning on a Cybertruck factory pickup / delivery

    Yes, Texas is huge. Even in an ICE vehicle with 10 minutes for fuel fill ups it will take the majority of a day to reach El Paso at the western border of Texas after leaving Austin and that includes elevated speed limits in West Texas of 85 mph.

    Who's planning on a Cybertruck factory pickup / delivery

    Heck yeah! My wife and I plan to drive our Model S up from San Antonio. I hope other family members may attend the tour. My son-in-law is an electrical engineer with Texas Instruments and my young grandson would also love it! It’s time for all generations to develop a passion for electric...

    What features won’t be standard on the tri-motor and what do you think full spec will cost?

    I agree 100%. Artificial leather/leather are not durable enough for real truck activity, too susceptible to punctures and scratches.

    Naming your CyberTruck

    Same name as the license plate I already reserved "D*FUTR"

    Wheel covers have to be deleted.

    I hope to take delivery of my truck at the factory here in Texas. If ANY removable wheel covers are on my truck, I’ll be handing them back before I drive off. I’ve never had hubcaps on any of my trucks and I won’t start now. Hubcaps don’t belong on a truck!

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

    I drove past the site Saturday afternoon, behind the cranes they have already erected some framework of a building.

    Why no HUD? (On any Tesla?)

    Mine is a bubble lens but is much lower than yours, its down under the bumper where the license plate is. It also becomes obscured by dirty water spray that accumulates when driving in the rain.

    Why no HUD? (On any Tesla?)

    The back up camera on my SS becomes unusable after I drive down dirt roads.

    Why no HUD? (On any Tesla?)

    As someone who actually has a car with HUD and LOVES to drive his cars, I would definitely want it in the Cybertruck. Come on Elon, GM has been putting Heads Up Dysplays in cars since the 1980s. I have a 2017 Chevy SS sedan with a HUD that is awesome! I use it all the time. I never look...

    Tone down the accolades

    I'm most concerned about bozos who want to perform 9mm target practice test. The moment I saw Elon show that video, I could see in my mind the future youtube idiots performing a test in a parking lot.

    Musk teases Giga Texas factory - for Cybertruck production?

    We Texans drive a lot of Trucks. Part of the appeal is the comfort on long trips with family, this is a very large state with wide open space and great highways. The other appeal is the versatility when doing outdoor activities. San Antonio would be a great place for the Cybertruck factory...

    Poll: Are You Replacing an ICE Truck With Your Cybertruck?

    Yes, 2004 Chevy Avalanche 2 WD.

    Are you new to Tesla?

    I have an early 2014 Tesla Model S P85 (back then autopilot was not even mentioned) and a 2004 Chevy Avalanche truck. The Cybertruck has many of the attributes I love in my Avalanche plus the things I am looking for in its replacement. I never thought I'd be getting rid of this truck because...
