    Rivian Price Bump

    After massive cancelations (I was one of them), RJ just sent an apology letter to reservation holders and said will reinstate the original pricing for existing reservation holders. That is a good news for CT reservation holders. I think chance of @Crissa being right is now more than 50%.

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    First let me say the only reason I still have a reservation is that I hope and wish you are correct and still believe there is a chance you are. But I think that chance is less than 50%. I think the philosophical difference we have here is that you think of the pricing we got as a commitment...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    I think the cost to build CT only sets the floor for how low it can be. I believe the actual price will be set by what people are willing to pay, Tesla's appetite for Margin, what other trucks (ICE and BEV) are selling for and the individuals fixation with CT. If I am correct on these, in...

    Rivian Price Bump

    Rivian just pulled a Lightning. Their prices for existing reservation holders for the vehicle and many options has significantly increased. I think this should be expected for CT as well even if Tesla has not done that in the past.

    Screaming into the Cyber void

    Haven't posted for a while but I had to say sorry to see you being sandwiched. I hope you are OK. Same thing happend to me in my truck. It sucks dealing with it but walking away OK is the most important thing. Edit: a slight pain in the neck may pay for your CT ;)

    ? Quad Motor Cybertruck and Crab Walk (Independent Front & Rear Wheel Steering) Confirmed!!

    No argument there. Again I have no stock in any of them. I only care when I get my EV truck. I prefer if it is CT. Tesla is the most mature EV company in the world. With the size of GigaTexas, what is going on with the steel company and battery factory, a person has to be a moron not to...

    Battery Leak

    There is a standard to figure out the power consumption of every EV. There could be a standard for this as well. I am not saying I am smart enough to set that standard but people that make the car and set regulations for it are. Even though EV may not know about heat loss in power...

    Battery Leak

    It all comes down to numbers. If the waste is $1 a year to keep the battery healthy, It is not even worth the time we are spending discussing it but if it effectively doubles the electricity used for the miles driven, manufacturers should be more transparent about it especially for folks living...

    They have e given delivery windows (2 months) to all LE reservation holders March to September. The rest should get their windows by end of the month

    Employees are owners and they do have them in their driveway. The point is the factory is producing them and you don't see CTs being delivered to anyone.

    ? Quad Motor Cybertruck and Crab Walk (Independent Front & Rear Wheel Steering) Confirmed!!

    [ I know you like beating your chest for Tesla and CT but you missed my point. I am not saying CT will not be the best overall truck out there when it comes out. I am saying that goal may be the reason some of us may not be around to enjoy it when it does come out. Rivian has something CT...

    Battery Leak

    @android04 and @Crissa I really appreciate you guys taking the time to dumb it down for me. It was very helpful. I am a little less paranoid about my EV transition now.

    ? Quad Motor Cybertruck and Crab Walk (Independent Front & Rear Wheel Steering) Confirmed!!

    His swinging…..factor theory and wanting to take over truck market got me a little more hopeful that pricing may stay the same for CT2. Availability in a reasonable time for me still questionable. Front wheel of a rear wheel drive car can move sideway. Why would you need dual motor for crab walk?

    ? Quad Motor Cybertruck and Crab Walk (Independent Front & Rear Wheel Steering) Confirmed!!

    May be true but for some of us, kicking ass is providing the features we need for a better price. Rivian is already capable of doing much more than I dare to do at a price I rather not pay. If I can get CT2 at advertised price in a timely manner, Rivian ass is already kicked. An expensive CT...

    Battery Leak

    That is cherry picking. Which one is worse, being more inefficient when you are in operation (doing something) or being inefficient when you are not in operation? My car is sitting in the driveway a whole lot longer than it is moving. Granted my 18 year old ICE battery looses charge when it...

    ? Quad Motor Cybertruck and Crab Walk (Independent Front & Rear Wheel Steering) Confirmed!!

    There is a reason F150 is the best selling truck. They make trucks for what people really do. Driving straight is what we do in U.S. off road is fiction most of us see only on the screen. Frankly the only thing that may push me over $50K for CT is 400+ mile range. The only additional...

    . That will just sell more Hummers, Rivians, Lightnings and Silverados. It is good for Environment.

    If they are thinking 800V-900V battery packs, that may add some serious delays.

    ? Quad Motor Cybertruck and Crab Walk (Independent Front & Rear Wheel Steering) Confirmed!!

    It is more like “more”. Elon wants CT to be the best when it comes out. As long as other manufacturers come out with something better, CT will get redesigned and delayed. Rear wheel steering from Hummer, Quad from Rivian, Lucid was just first over 500 miles so getting that in a big truck may...

    Battery Leak

    Olds is long gone. I loved that car. It may have been inefficient starting but it was much more efficient sitting and keeping me warm on the road was a free side effect that didn’t need extra energy. All that said, I can’t wait for my first EV. Even driving a first gen Soul EV in a parking...
