    Cybertruck reservations halted outside North America

    With costs going up, this could be a way for Tesla to cut the bleeding. They don't want to piss off the locals but they also don't want to have to supply any more loss leaders than they have to. Well, that's my take, anyway..

    With Overseas reservations being refunded, how will that affect your place in line?

    Right. I tried to be precise in the fact that it isn't substantiated yet. I'll make it more obvious.

    With Overseas reservations being refunded, how will that affect your place in line?

    You don't have to worry about US orders. There is NO WAY that Tesla gives up this space. Too many eyes are on it.

    Cybertruck reservation order number -- how to tell your place in line

    In case you didn't see the other post of mine, Electrified reported today that overseas reservations for the CT were being cancelled and refunded by Tesla.

    With Overseas reservations being refunded, how will that affect your place in line?

    I haven't verified it yet, but it looks like Tesla is cancelling and refunding overseas reservations. That should move us all up the list a little. Whoever controls the list, can you make that adjustment so we can get a feel to where we will be in the list now? ***THIS IS NOT CONFIRMED*** It...

    Does Stainless Steel shield EMP?

    Aside from movies, turning off equipment before an EMP event does NOT prevent the EMP effects. One more thing... We DO have military vehicles and aircraft and radios, etc that are designed to withstand EMP events. I even monitored such testing once upon many moons ago.

    Elon Musk Financial Times Interview (Includes some Cybertruck content)

    Not in the history of autos has it taken a manufacturer 3 years to ramp up and figure out production. No, Tesla will go from 1 CT produced on the line to 1 per 2 minutes in less than 6 months.

    CT end of life

    The efficiency of the CT will also not go down with age. You may lose some capability (as if your diesel tank got a little smaller) but at 200,000 Miles, at 80% of 500, you'd still have 400 miles of range. If you only top to 90% and go no lower than 10%, you'll still get 320 Miles between...

    Does Stainless Steel shield EMP?

    Yeah, I was a 21M... MASO, MMT, QA, MOO, DTRA Inspector/Trainer... Now, Ops Analyst at STRATCOM... Tough to figure out what threads I want to reply to a d which I need to just let go. LOL. (526th '01-'04 and 91st '10-'14)

    Cybertruck reservation order number -- how to tell your place in line

    What if the solar only generates 5 miles per day but due to their weight, you lose 5 miles per day in range? They would be a benefit when long-term parking like at an airport but daily, you'd lose range. That is IF you lose 5 miles per day in range due to their weight which we have no idea how...

    Cybertruck reservation order number -- how to tell your place in line

    Unless the loss in efficiency of hauling around solar panels is greater than the amount of electricity they produce. If, for example, you drive at night to an event and then back home, the solar panels will have produced a negative benefit for that one particular trip vs. not taking their...

    Quad Motor Cybertruck or a 911 Carrera

    Porche? Nice cars... pricey maintenance. Pass.

    @SawyerMerrit discussed new CyberTruck model lineup: base, mid, tri, quad, plaid

    I would be willing to bet that with current production capabilities of batteries, Freemont, Nevada, Giga Texas... there won't be a huge constraint there. Sure, there may be enough of a constraint to slow production of the CT. So, which should they sell first? A Cybertruck with a lower cell...

    If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    This is kind of weird to think about. Would you go to a regular dealer and tell them how much more you'd be willing to pay for a vehicle that you've already agreed to a price on? I know... this is not a dealership. But, what if... just what if... Elon ran across polls like this and said "Hey...

    New 4680 Model Y Charge Rate?

    Hummer charges quickly, I believe, by using 800 Volts split between two separated battery banks. This would be a great capability with the Cybertruck. You could effectively cut the charging time in half. It would cost adding an additional charger to the CT and phase in V4, 800 V charging...

    MULTIPLE Cybertrucks on site at Giga Texas this morning for Cyber Rodeo!

    The one covered on the left looks shorter in the hood area. See how the cover is bunched up there? The one on the right fills the cover pretty well. I would bet the one on the right is the original prototype with the door handles and no mirrors. The one on the left is the one that has the...

    IDRA announces 9000T gigapress at open house in June

    Why does the video call this a 9000 ton Gigapress? It says right on the side, 9000 DREAMPRESS.

    IDRA announces 9000T gigapress at open house in June

    The rear casting will have to support the bed so there's no way they'll use the same casting for the front and rear.

    Why extend the roof?

    I mean once you have the tonneau open and the midgate down and your lumber loaded, you wouldn't be able to close the tonneau... Because it is down in the midgate or below the midgate, whatever. No, the tonneau needs to be rolled up above a midgate so you can have the tonneau closed and the...

    BREAKING! Cybertruck Spotted On Site at Austin Giga Factory for Cyber Rodeo

    Thanks for getting the video anyway. It's cool to see the CT is there. Shoot more video but how about horizontally so we see some width, please. 👍
