    Cybertruck launch delayed again - Per AutoForecast Solutions - until Oct 2023

    One problem with software, especially in the case of FSD, is that it is very likely to get updates and upgrades as new capabilities and features come along. SO having a one off payment actually makes the least sense, it should be a deposit and a subscription, or just a subscription. That allows...

    CT end of life

    I think it might be because the CT with 4680 cells will now only have one layer of battery pack, instead of potentially two layers.

    Um ok. So now you are saying that it's because of the electric motor torque that a EV uses less energy with increased weight? Are you also saying that an a ICE has worse range than a EV, or that a diesel has more torque, and has better range because of that? This is confusing on multiple...

    Just go back to the future and get a Mr Fusion for the back of the CT as well...

    CT end of life

    Sorry I think you missed the point of the conversation here, I'm not promoting ICE, only stating why the physics of a higher energy density fuel is less impacted by weight. Maybe start reading a couple of pages back. :)

    Invest in charging stations?

    I can imagine getting the network capacity installed on a good location is harder than getting the supercharger themselves? Superchargers have significant peak load, which is network capacity you still pay for even if no-one is charging EVs with them. It would be nice to have a Megapack...

    John Deere buys Kreisel Electric, plans to electrify its lineup

    They don't use batteries they use extension cables. I kid not.

    Only if you think inertia and momentum are the same :cool:

    CT end of life

    Sorry I think we might be talking past eachother. Let me try again. 🙂 There are two distinct sides of the range "coin" conversation. One is vehicle energy consumption, or rate of work, the other is available energy capacity to do said work. So given these two distinct sides, we can say that...

    CT end of life

    Um sort of not really? We'd have to define load first, is it load in a enclosed bed or a trailer etc, as this determines how much load there actually is. Likewise the energy density changes the amount of energy available to counteract drag caused by weight etc, and therefore range. It is...

    I mean the conversion of interia into forward momentum is 100% efficient.

    CT end of life

    In energy consumption for a given range yes, but ICE offsets this by having much higher energy density in fuel, that more than offsets the EV truck advantage from regen. Note coasting still works in a ICE too, and coasting has a higher 100% efficiency in converting inertia, unlike regen that is...

    You are thinking against the trend. EM is about abundance and excess, for everyone. That means less cost not more. Unless you are predicting 2-300% inflation?

    Will FSD even be asking a premium in 10 years? I think it will be standard.

    CT end of life

    No worries. I don't want to sound pedantic, but it's important to use the right units when describing things. So for battery "energy" capacity use kWh and for "power" use kW. I referred to CT aerodynamic because it wasn't clear in your post that you were talking about Semi. Rolling resistance...

    CT end of life

    Yep it does. But CT should be around 0.30 Cd according to EM which is the same as the Rivian currently is. Cd is not a percentage as such, it is a aerodynamic drag coefficient. It is predominately not affected by vehicle weight at all, beyond suspension compression creating a lower vehicle, or a...

    Is Cybertruck under 3.5t (7000lbs)?

    I think its unlikely that the CT will be under 3500kg GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) seeing that it has the capacity to load 1587kg in the bed itself. This would mean the Cybertruck would have to weigh 1913kg empty. For comparison the Model X Plaid weighs 2444kg and is smaller in size, an does not...

    On the phone its as easy as holding down the number key...on a PC keyboard its alt 173. I seem to be using them all the time over the last few years so I don't think much about how to use them. On the phone I try to use swipe most of the time, but often find myself jabbing keys for technical...

    Lol fat fingers, small screens and no glasses...I'm surprised you can read anything I post! :ROFLMAO: Most definitely "Truck³".

    Do you know where Optimus's charge plug is?? ;)
