    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Likely depends on how much more efficient it is. As you suggest efficiency is more important with the Semi. Ultimately it’s just a matter of whether the clutch is less expensive than the batteries it displaces. So if the clutches increase range enough to eliminate enough cells the clutch pays...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Same clutch design could work for dual motor. That said, for towing they might want the power tri motor has and the range running long distances with a single motor offers. I think it’s a better design than the quad motor setup for most people. But you’re right, it is in a weird spot on the...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Semi uses Model 3/ Y motors. Thats the only way they can claim 50.9b miles on the Drive Unit. Cybertruck may follow suit To keep costs down. They may also use the same clutch mechanic the semi uses to increase efficiency. Perhaps the tri motor Cybertruck isn’t dead after all. Running a single...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Megacharger is just a v4 Supercharger. V4 Supercharger can operate at 500v or 1000v. If it’s only operating at 500v, it has half the charging speed. Any Tesla can use the v4 charger… Every single Tesla can use the v4 charger. The only special sauce here that the Cybertruck can have in common...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Your calculator is kind of lame. 1,000 kW is at best peak charging rate. Look at the charts @samroy92 posted above for an idea of how charging rates vary from start to finish. Average charge speed will be much lower than peak charge speed. It is unlikely the Cybertruck average charge speed...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Yep. Though I don’t think they are sandbagging so much as being careful and completing each step in order. Volume production first. Then special sauce.

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    With their current battery chemistries, this is correct. We’re hopefully going to see some of the new battery chemistry changes Tesla discussed on battery day come in and help us out here. Also, there is a lot of wiggle room in what Musk said. They were talking about the new cables and the...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Either it’ll be a Dino or it’ll be serving it’s purpose as a post apocalyptic battle wagon. One or the other.

    Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    That would be truly impressive. Here I was thinking 1m a year was a reasonable high estimate of run rate.

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    Not going to happen. It might peak at 1,000 kW, but it won’t sustain that charge speed for the entire stop. Much like existing chargers peak at 250 kW and average about 100 kW over the duration of the charge. Plan on doubling that average charging speed at best. Good chance charge times will...

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    It might peak at 1,000 kW and drop quickly. Tesla has been working on increasing charging speed with new battery chemistries.

    Cybertruck 1000V Architecture + V4 Supercharging Confirmed!! ⚡️ "It's Going to be Used for Cybertruck Too" - Elon Musk

    There is a big difference between “this makes sense” and “this is indeed true”. Very happy to hear this. That’s a lot of Joules to be shoving through a little tiny hose. Also cool hearing the details, they cool the cable with water squeezed between the copper wires… that’s crazy cool. Don‘t...

    Cybertruck Production Per Year for X IDRA 9T at Giga Texas

    Indeed. 109% true. Except I don’t think there is an after. I suspect Tesla delivers 500k Cybertrucks per year well into the future.

    Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    Tapering will happen fast. Might see 3-4 minutes at max speed then charge speed will drop quickly. Between the 500 mile range and quickly adding those first few miles, it’ll be a super enjoyable road tripping machine.

    Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    So as they roll out the semi truck charging network, Cybertruck drivers towing loads will get access to that network and pull through stalls. This… makes a ton of sense because for a long time Semi won’t have enough trucks on the road to justify building out their network. Cybertrucks will be...

    Tesla Semi Launch Event Dec 1

    I’m not 100% sure we’ll get megawatt charging at Superchargers, and even if we do it‘ll taper fast. But from the sounds of it, it’s going to be very very fast charging for the big cells. Likely similar to Model Y charging, 0 - 80% in 30 minutes Even as it’s sucking 2-3x the power.

    Craziest thing about this event? Snow on the Grapevine.

    Interesting… not a peep on Semi pricing. I assume?? Same as initial advertised price?
