    Cybertruck pics & videos from the Petersen Automotive Museum [Dates Extended Until July 5]

    Day to day driving the Aeros are actually extremely practical, and useful, as they’ll maximize your range, especially in long distance drives. I agree off-roading they won’t be practical, but pretty much any other scenario, I don’t see how they wouldn’t be able to stay in place, and be beneficial

    Cybertruck pics & videos from the Petersen Automotive Museum [Dates Extended Until July 5]

    They’re likely just aero covers, like on the base Model 3 and base Model Y. The purpose is for range efficiency, but as with the Model 3 and Model Y, they have a designed wheel underneath. The wheels under the aeros are generally not too bad in their own right. I seem to be one of very few...

    Cybertruck will make public debut at Petersen Auto Museum in LA beginning From June 20-27!

    Very jealous! If this was a week later, I would gladly take a road trip to see this. My concern would be, drive all that way and you don’t get to do anything but see it from behind a display barrier. Anything would be better than nothing though, to see it in person! To those going, I hope...

    Interior Side View Camera Screen Spotted?!

    My Father is 71, and while initially he had some trouble driving my Model 3, he ended up saying that it wasn’t too difficult to get used to. It takes a little time, but a quick glance over a few degrees is similar to looking down a few degrees. I find myself using cruise most of the time...

    Interior Side View Camera Screen Spotted?!

    Looks like Model 3 is getting some side camera love on Reverse. So, it may be possible to have this managed through the center screen, or a setting. Will everyone like it, maybe not, but at least in my area, side mirrors are only required without Rearview visibility. Tesla implementing a...

    Cybertruck Interior Compared to Competitors (Sandy Munro Series)

    I’m feeling like there will be wireless charging either in the center console, or a flip down tray below the screen, similar to where the Model 3 and Model Y have their charging now. I would also be in the 5 seat, true center console camp. I will be happy with it regardless of that though.

    Cybertruck Interior Compared to Competitors (Sandy Munro Series)

    I can imagine there will be a spot either in the dash, or that will pop out from under the dash, like the glovebox does in the Model 3. Model S initially came out with no center storage, save for a small amount in the arm rest, and a open “basin” between the front seats. They’ve since added the...

    Realized I had this, and would show a pretty good breakdown of costs. Cost overall for the Dual Motor CT is similar to the cost of my Model 3 at time of purchase. Where I paid 2K for paint..I paid 2K less for FSD. I can imagine the 2K for paint could be a tow package on CT order screen...

    Always add in the Destination and Doc fee, usually $1200. I would also plan on any charging infrastructure costs now. Best to get ahead of it, and either get it installed earlier, rather than later, or build that into your budgeting plan. I personally had my house set up with room to upgrade...

    I went for Long Range Model 3, and I’m glad I did. It’s all about whether or not I can afford the additional 20K, when the time comes. I agree that more range would be better, and especially for trips, and while towing. I went through the winter with my Model 3, although I do find the...

    Will definitely keep you posted. I’m intrigued by the quad, although I’m not sure I would get a ton of use from one. Would still make for a fun toy to have. @H20 I also put FSD on. Currently have it on my Model 3, and while it’s not without some interaction, it is GREAT for long drives, and...

    Welcome to the thread H20. I will say, as a current Tesla owner, the build and some tweaks happen throughout production, that actually leads to better product in the later RNs and fulfilled vehicles. Model 3 they changed seats, and bottom seat height/angle in back because the seat didn’t sit...

    Interior Side View Camera Screen Spotted?!

    Could be a display, but I think it’s more likely to be a tweeter. Center display is where I imagine they’d put the side mirror image, when the turn signal is activated. May also be activated at any time also through the display. Today with the Model 3, I check my blind spots manually, and...

    Oh nice! Yeah, I went with a family friend, that’s a Master Electrician, that was just starting to branch out on his own. He ran a new 50amp (ready for 60amp) from my basement to my garage (opposite sides) and it was a little over $500.

    I do own a Model 3 now. I’m in Apple Valley often! I recommend installing a charger in the garage. Charging at home is plenty for day to day, and precharging before going to the cabin. Once there, trickle charge with a 20amp outlet. Highly recommend you get at least a NEMA 14-50 in the...

    Glad to see another Twin Cities area future CT owner in here! I’m in Woodbury myself. I have two reservations, one at around 8800, and one at around 10,000 compared to the hypothetical starting point! I have one set for Tri-Motor, and one set for Dual motor. Still making up my mind on which...

    Will the CyberTruck be your First Tesla and/or Electric Vehicle?

    That’s a great observation of Jay’s segment. He really didn’t seem to have much excitement, and didn’t make many comments about driving dynamics, or anything. I was really hoping to see some more interaction with the truck, and more detail. Something tells me they intentionally left a lot out...

    Will the CyberTruck be your First Tesla and/or Electric Vehicle?

    For those that haven’t driven a Tesla, or don’t own one yet, you’re in for a treat. I’ve enjoyed my year and a half with my Model 3, and cant imagine going back to an ICE vehicle. Cybertruck will replace the 3, and give our growing family more space inside. We are also looking at the...

    Cybertruck seat material

    I have had zero problems cleaning my vehicle seats. I would say CT will be very easy to clean. There aren’t a lot of crevices, and knobs to clean around. Just flat lines, and a few crevices. I will say, I’m not looking forward to cleaning the interior windshield of the CT. Will be quite the...
