  1. Charging While Driving?

    I haven't seen this topic come up before, but very possible I've missed it. Doesn't it seem like all EV trucks are missing a big opportunity to allow a plug by the hitch for solar charging while it is being towed? Elon mentioned solar on tonneau cover w/ solar could add 30-40mile per day...
  2. Max Charging Rate for Cybertruck?

    I am assuming the CT will use the standard Tesla plug, which makes me super curious, what is the max amps/KW/voltage of the Tesla plug (not of a V3 charger)? Wasn't able to find a clear answer on Google. The reason I'm curious is that Tesla seems to indicate a 100kwh battery could soon charge...
  3. Is the Big Wiper Final?

    It would appear that the latest wiper design is final? Every new version of CT has it, even though Elon has stated he doesn't like it. Has anyone heard differently? I wonder if your view by A-pillar is obstructed by it? That would be annoying to see that wiper instead of other cars/road.
  4. Dual Motor CT will be $75K. Change my mind.

    We all know the CT will be more expensive, but there seems to be a consensus the CT2 will be priced around $63k from the original $50K. I am confused by this. Let's look at some competition: Model Y Long Range: $66K Rivian R1T: $79K Ford Lightning: $80K (XLT extended range, cheapest 300-mile...
  5. Where to See EV Deliveries?

    I feel like I go through this every quarter after Tesla announces their deliveries, but is there a website that shows every vehicle manufactures EV deliveries by quarter/month etc? It would be nice to see how other manufacturers are progressing with their deliveries other than reading random...
  6. New 4680 Model Y Charge Rate?

    I noticed something while watching the giga rodeo live stream. The current MY website says "Recharge up to 162 mile in 15 min" while the giga rodeo Model Y says 200 miles in 15 min. I attached snips. Am I looking into this too much? Or is this the new charge rate going forward for 4680 Model Ys...
  7. How will Tesla Unveil the Giga Texas Model Y?

    To my knowledge there is much mystery on this subject. What will new range be, cost, charging speed? We know new MY will be lower weight, so performance improvements? It should also cost significantly less to produce. Will only those who follow these developments care, and it will be...
  8. FSD Isn't Coming Anytime Soon

    Ben Sullins posted a video recently which can summarize how I feel about FSD. I'm not saying it won't come, but I do think we are fooling ourselves to think it will be ready this year. I've been watching FSD videos for over a year and there are too many basic failures (let alone edge cases) for...
  9. A Really Good Q4 Earnings Call Question

    Toni Sacconaghi "Elon, I was wondering if I could just follow up and ask. You talked about your product road map and also your goal to keep growing at 50% per year or better. That would put you at 3.2 million vehicles or more in 2024. And I think you made reference to Cybertruck maybe being...
  10. Silverado EV Predictions

    The Silverado EV is going to be revealed 1/5 at CES. What distinguishing (if any) features do you think it'll have? My understanding is 4 wheel steering, 400 mile range, glass roof, and EV specific subframe. Glad to see all these EV trucks coming to production!
  11. What Everyone is Missing w/ Quad Motor Cybertruck.

    More than likely, the new quad motor CT will have a longer range, and increased towing capability for those who want to haul loads. This is fantastic as it will bring CT out of the F150 class and into the F250 range of potential buyers. The problem is how on earth will you charge while towing...
  12. Question About 4680 Cells

    I've always been curious about this slide from Battery Day. The 54% range increase and 56% $/KWH reduction shown, are these increases able to be stacked on top of each other? Take a current M3 that now costs $10,000 for a battery (just a guess) w/ a 300 mile range. W/ the 4680 cells, would you...
  13. Did Elon Confirm 350kW Charging For Cybertruck??

    So if 350kW charging is coming to the future, and the future is the 4680 cell, and the best 4680 cell is going into Cybertruck and Semi, can it be reasonable to say this is all but a confirmation of 350kW charging for the Cybertruck? Frankly, this was the best news of the entire presentation IMO.
  14. Will all EVs (Cybertruck) be resold significantly under value?

    Is there a used EV tax credit? Let's just say the new proposed EV credit goes through, and you get a $10k discount. Why would anyone buy your vehicle for more than you paid for it?
  15. Why I'm Getting The F150 Lightning

    I currently have both reservations for CT and Lightning, but here's what lead me to put in a reservation for Lightning. Either truck was going to need to fit into one of 2 categories: ultimate road trip family vehicle, or cheap EV work vehicle. If I do end up getting the Lightning, it'll be the...
  16. A More Useful Frunk

    After the Lightning reveal, it really makes me wish the CT Frunk wasn't so much a lid, but copied the Lightning strategy of allowing for easier access/loading/unloading. Looking at pictures what do you guys think? It seems it could be done while still keeping simple bend strategy for stainless...
  17. F150 Lightning Predictions

    What does everyone predict for the Lightning reveal? Here's what I think: [ ] $55,000/$70,000 [ ] 250 and 350 mile range [ ] 14,000lb towing [ ] 2,500lb payload [ ] 200kW charging [ ] Dual Motor [ ] 0-60 4 sec/5 sec [ ] Bed Charging, no air compressor [ ] Frunk charging
  18. Will Dual Motor Cybertruck Have 4680 Cells?

    I have been trying to find it (without luck) and I'm sure others here have already watched it, but on the Now You Know YouTube channel, they recently conjectured that because the ranges of the different Model S models were similar to the CT ranges, and that only the Plaid + would be getting 4680...
  19. Who Plans on Towing? And What is Their Plan?

    I was reading an older article on towing w/ a Model X and it got me thinking about the Supercharger experience w/ towing. The author stated he had to unhitch most of the time to SC, and since most SC (including new V3s being installed) are back-in vs pull-through, I was curious what readers on...
  20. Who Else is Hoping for a Redesign for Wife's Acceptance?

    I currently have the CT preordered because the specs are too good to pass up. Price, range, stainless steel body, large interior to travel w/ family, camping, autopilot, and Supercharger network all considered obvious pros. However, I am waiting to see a hopefully less hideous design (if this...
