  1. When to expect delivery when i'm 270,000 place in line.

    They did? "... many if not all"? That's news to me, and I have not missed anything that appeared on this site. Do you have any more details?
  2. Import from US to Canada to save money

    "In Canada, you do have to replace these stickers and manuals when you sell it ...." Once a vehicle is admitted to the country, I'm unaware of any federal statutory requirements on selling it. Registering/licencing it is provincial. In my province, Ontario, that requires only a safety...
  3. Import from US to Canada to save money

    I heard of a case (which I cannot verify): an owner of a US-purchased new car was refused Canadian importation (in Ontario) because it did not contain an owners manual in French. (He got one, and was admitted on the next try by a customs guy who didn't ask for it.)
  4. Is there anyway to make the CyberTruck carjack proof, (so everyone knows you can't take this car)? It has to be a super cool way of course!!!

    No, that is not really "what full coverage insurance Is made for." Insurance is made to enrich the insurer. After paying your claim (less the deductible), they will expect to recoup the payout through cancelling your no-claims discount and/or raising your premium. If that's not likely, they...
  5. Is there anyway to make the CyberTruck carjack proof, (so everyone knows you can't take this car)? It has to be a super cool way of course!!!

    In a couple of years this site will be focused on the many add-ons offered for the CT by Tesla and third-party suppliers.
  6. Elon Says Final Cybertruck Design is Now Locked! Updated Production Timeline = Mid-2023

    Maybe not a good idea to give competitors a year to copy the CT design.
  7. Is there any hope for the 40k Cybertruck?

    If and when the seller's Cybertruck market changes to a buyer's one, there's not much inflation between now and then, and Tesla comes up with a new variant (smaller, more basic), then I'd say the possibility exists.
  8. Ford going 100% online for EV sales

    We all (unless some readers are dealers) hope this CEO's plan passes, and that other makes will follow suit. But two concerns are that this is one single newspaper's story, and Ford has a history of getting rid of executives. Let's not celebrate until we see what the Texas dealership consortium...
  9. Airless Tires not adjustable

    Tire design is a compromise. That is, making one aspect better will make another worse. Airless design is well underway, notably by a Michelin division -- for combat vehicles. Early civilian applications are expected to be for off-road machinery (many early farm-tractor tires were airless)...
  10. Giga Austin to start production of Cybertruck in Q3?

    On delivery, we don't know when, where, and what. Sorry.
  11. Cybertruck to use 48V instead of 12V?

    If a 48v battery will fail like a 12v one (after 4-6 yrs) it will surely be costlier than a 12v. Another downside would be problems with connecting accessories that come only in 12v.
  12. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    The early production could be high because the CT was designed around an efficient assembly line more than was the case with other models (so I've heard). Or low because of component shortages and unexpected glitches with such a unique model. And because the CT will be competing with two other...
  13. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    You can't know that -- without having two unknowns in hand: the production numbers and the delivery locations.
  14. Tesla Cybertruck is Now Cheapest Tesla You Can Order

    "A man's reach should exceed his grasp Or what's heaven for?" If you were Mr. Rivian and you had a zillion orders but only a trickle coming out the door, what would you try?
  15. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    "... being to market with a few thousand trucks in 2022 won’t make a ton of difference one way or the other." No, each of those first few thousand will act like 100 of them in terms of publicity. We will read of early owners being offered double. Of automotive journalists offering huge sums to...
  16. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    Did Musk say he hoped that building them would start in 2023? If so, they won't be rolling out to those on the list (non-employees) until 2024, and for locations beyond north-west states, deliveries might start in 2025. By then I'll be long gone. Oh well, nice idea while it lasted.
  17. Highway Charging While Driving

    Highways could include induction charging, ice-melt heating, load-bearing detection, and who knows what else. The issue is the cost/benefit ratio, and until that becomes appealing, I don't see Tesla participating.
