    Tesla's 700 Mile Battery Is Coming Sooner Than You Think

    From my perspective with this kind of range I would never hesitate towing anything for the few times a year that I do. For the normal day use a larger battery means fewer cycle times. Fewer cycle times means longer lasting. right?

    True Price of the Cybertruck

    As much as I would love to pay less, the EV incentive is designed to help the company enter the market and also produce a catalyst for demand. Tesla has become well established as well as demand for CT is strong. I think it's more fiscally responsible to give those credits to other brands...

    Would you rather have a 6th seat or 5 seats with more storage?

    I don't think I'll need that 6th seat all the time but the few times I will need it it will be very nice. The rest of the time I plan to have it folded down and use the built in console. Having the 6th seat as an option is huge to me.

    Cybertruck Gigafactory Location Will Be More Than Halfway to East Coast

    Joplin is out of the way from everything and not a large talent pool. Nice area, I used to drive through it a lot but not a destination. Texas seems like the best deal so far. Access to gulf for shipping, large labor pool, large technology pool. I like the thought of all that wind energy...

    Should Reservation Price Increase?

    Many people got excited and put down the low $100 for a reservation (me included). It seems that even Elon was surprised at the number of reservations.
