    Name your top 5 reasons why you pre-ordered a Cybertruck

    Utility - Ability to Haul and Tow - I need a truck for home-improvement and other projects. I don't currently have a truck and it makes it so I can't do so many things I want to do without getting assistance from friends with trucks or renting a vehicle, often leading to me putting off those...

    2022 Tesla In Person Shareholder Meeting

    Congrats! If you do see one (or more), and photos are allowed, can you please get a few nice shots of the truck bed and specifically the tonneau cover tracks/grooves and where it goes into the truck. Hopefully they will have one on display, and hopefully it will be a newer prototype and not...

    Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    For model 3, production started in July 2017 and first deliveries were in July 2017. For model Y, production started in Jan 2020, and delivery began in March 2020. Most likely we would see a launch more similar to Model Y, imo.

    Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    Why is that optimistic? Seems like a realistic timeline based on all other evidence. The design has been finalized. It can be assumed that the final design includes a breakdown of how they will source / manufacture all parts, a plan for how those parts are built, by what equipment, ect...

    Cybertruck 900V architecture confirmed?

    Existing Superchargers don't need to be, do they? Correct me if I am wrong, but a 900v system would still be able to be charged by existing DC fast chargers without changing them. Porsche Taycan has an 800v system and it can charge at most CCS chargers even if they don't support 800v. I assume...

    Updated Predicted Cybertruck Pricing

    The Musk quote seems to support Tesla aspiring to keep the costs down, not make an expensive truck, and that doing so is one of the primary design challenges. Musk wouldn't say "creating an expensive truck is relatively easy" if he wanted to jack the prices up and drastically increase...

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

    To be clear, your reservation would only be on the spreadsheet if you put it there. It is not an automated system that pulls information from somewhere, you have to enter your own reservation using the form for it to show up. It is just a form for us end-users to report our reservations and to...

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

    No, that is someone else's registration. You have to register your number. You are the one who does that, it is not pulled from a database. What Tesla sent you is the correct number. You should use that to register it on the site.

    Fortune favors the patient

    I am of the opinion that for the next few years every electric truck produced will find a buyer simply due to the demand for electric trucks. The Rivians, Fords, GMCs, ect will not materially dent the demand for the Cybertruck at launch. Yes, there will be some individuals who had put down...

    4680 Battery Structural Pack Dropdown From Model Y

    The weight of the pack with seats and center console is 1198 lbs (543kg). Some additional information was posted on the Reddit thread about this video from an employee at Munro that was interesting and adds some context: Based on this, the pack itself may not be lighter then an equivalent...

    4680 Battery Structural Pack Dropdown From Model Y

    I think the most interesting thing about this video (and it is all pretty interesting) is what they said about the weight of the pack being something like 1000 lbs less then many of the competitor packs they are looking at. It sounds like the weight advantage of the 4680 + structural pack...

    Elon Says Final Cybertruck Design is Now Locked! Updated Production Timeline = Mid-2023

    And you might very well be correct on this. I think it depends on how mature and well scaled 4680 production is at that point, other supply constraints (glass, seats, chips, ect), and how fast they plan to ramp the line. If the battery and motor are not constraints, and the software for the...

    Elon Says Final Cybertruck Design is Now Locked! Updated Production Timeline = Mid-2023

    This would also line up with the history of the Model 3 program. They first launched with the mid-tier long range RWD vehicles for nearly 3/4 of a year before they expanded to Performance vehicles. The mid-range vehicles used less motors and less battery, which reduces constraints from those...

    Price Increases?

    There probably will be a price increase to account for increased costs. I did a comparison last night of the price different between when I got my 2018 Model 3 LR RWD and the cost of a Model 3 LR AWD today (a somewhat close comparison, though not the exact same vehicle), and the price since...

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

    Yeah, I think they intend to stack the packs for that version, so double the batteries and double the packs they have to supply. I am interested to see how battery production ramps up over the next couple of years and if battery day will shed any more light on batteries for the Cybertruck.

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

    The Third Row Tesla Podcast with Elon from January? They talked about the Cybertruck near the end of part 2, I don't recall anything about the release schedule, but maybe I missed it. Regardless of what they start with, the end of next year can't come soon enough. I am so excited for this to...

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

    Yeah, but Model Y is based on the Model 3 drive-train/platform and uses the same battery sizes as the Model 3. The Model 3 did not launch with performance first when it came out. I am a LR RWD Model 3 owner not because I didn't want dual motor, but because it was the only option you could get...

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

    My understanding is that the single motor was pushed back to 2022 and the tri motor was moved up to 2021 (it was originally 2022). Both dual and tri motor are scheduled/listed to be configurable at the end of 2021 currently and I can't find any statement from Elon or Tesla actually saying that...

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

    I agree simply because it is popular, will require less battery cells then the three motor version, and it uses the existing Raven drive train instead of a new drive train.

    Are Tesla orders shipped in the order in which you ordered?

    Based on the Model 3 roll-out, a lot of things seemed to factor into when you got your Model 3. We don't know if the same things will matter for the Cybertruck. Here are the main variables that seemed to impact when you got your model 3, in order of importance: What version/trim is currently...
