  1. MyTeslaWeekend Rumor - Dual Motor only for the first 500k units produced!

    I suppose it depends on what their supply limitations will be. I suspect batteries will still be the primary limiting factor, not motors in 2023. I could be wrong though, I just assume that the carbon wrapping process was done because of how efficient it is vs different motor designs for the...
  2. Is it ridiculous to think the CT may get Mega charger access and capabilities?

    As the thread title says, what are peoples thoughts on a surprise CT getting access to the Megawatt charger network being built out for Semi? It would completely change the towing game for EVs rather quickly, not to mention plenty of room to pull in with trailer attached. There were some hints...
  3. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    There is more current data on that metric than January you missed... What does February say? And we know how many price increases have happened since Feb? It is now August, and we have had several large price increases since Feb...
  4. Is this a look into the future?

    I am talking about VPP or vehicle to grid use. Not for home backup. Very, very different things in my book. I would use my vehicle to power my home in the rare power outage (as you stated in your example). I would not V2G my vehicle to sell power, or provide power to the grid at a daily/hourly...
  5. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    You conveniently continue to ignore the very obvious and factual point I keep making. Today Tesla sells millions of EVs right now, at $66k average. That is the "backup" for my claim. Now do me a solid and justify your theory that Tesla will sell a 500 mile, 1000Hp, mega truck for less than the...
  6. Is this a look into the future?

    wear and tear specifically around what many charge and drain cycles do to a battery. If your car is plugged into your house, and sharing power with the grid that puts possibly multiple charge and drain cycles per day on your car. It would just accelerate the rate at which you "lose range" of the...
  7. Is this a look into the future?

    The last part of your comment I agree with. At the very least, it does set a price floor for the value of used EVs. I don't predict a future where beaters are selling on FB marketplace for $500. The batteries alone will make old, beaten down cars worth a good bit more than that just in raw...
  8. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    The EV market is very different than it was in 2017 when the Model 3 launched. Do you not agree with that statement? The sheer demand and volume of orders for the CT means years before even current orders are met. Your second point, seems to be agreeing with me actually. Tesla can sell every...
  9. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    For the top trim yes! Why is that so hard to understand? If you want the Top spec CT with quad motors, 500 miles of range, and nearly 1000HP and 0-60 times that are ridiculous, why would it not be up there with what Ford sells the F-150 lightning Platinum for? Why is it so hard for people to...
  10. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    If not $100K what about $65k? With a $100k top trim? You are arguing with me about something I am not... I am talking about the launch vehicle, and the prices of the Top spec CT... you are talking about 20 million EVs a year run rate and the goal of Tesla by 2030. Today, Tesla is making $$ at an...
  11. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    Bud, Tesla TODAY is selling 1+ million EVs a year at an average price of 65-66k. The economies of scale are proving that there is PLENTY of market for high priced vehicles with a Tesla badge on them. I get that you really really want the CT to be as cheap as you dream it will be. However, there...
  12. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    Yes. Thats how markets work. These EV trucks have been mostly Range topping specs. Because that is the most profitable. All of these EV trucks also have cheaper entry level trims, but those are not really being sold yet, but they will once/if volume for those picks up. However, for the CT it...
  13. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    Oh there is definitely indication. The current existing market is your indication. Tesla is a business to make money after all. Just because Elon has not tweeted about it does not mean there isn't an indication of the EV truck market and its trends, pricing, and competition. Tesla would be...
  14. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    That was the goal before, when this was announced and there were 0 EV trucks on the market. The CT is 100% competing with other EV trucks now. And yes, the F-150 lightning top trim is $100k. That is what we are talking about, the top trim of the CT vs the top trim of their competition. Keep in...
  15. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    I hope you know my last post was entirely joking. I don't think the base CT will be much more than the competition. So... $45-50k. However, the big stats, and the mega truck version also should not be less than the range toppers from the competition either. Ford sells plenty of $100k+ F-150s...
  16. Details on the new EV credit from the AP

    No tax credit means less people buying/affording one. Perhaps many people dropping their orders in "protest". Might remove many from the list waiting for the CT. If you can afford to buy one of these, you honestly don't NEED the credit. It would be a nice to have for sure, but if not having it...
  17. Is this a look into the future?

    Been talking about this exact thing for about 4 years now. So has Tesla, Elon, and others following what EVs and the tech can and should do. Using EV batteries for grid balancing is likely not worth the wear it will put on your vehicle with current battery chemistries. Its not nearly a big a...
  18. Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    To me its interesting what people feel these are worth. Sounds like good news for people hoping to sell these early in auctions with these prices guesses. Though it does surprise me that people are not looking at other trucks, and their price differences. Other auto makers sell trucks for a...
  19. Im calling it.. Cybertruck and Roadster will be at the LA Auto Show

    Why would Tesla go to an auto show? Auto shows are for car makers that don't have enough following on their own to make waves. Its full of startups showing concept cars and trying to get people to care about them. Tesla has the presence to run their own show, and get more people to go to it than...
