  1. Cybertruck FULL FRONT VIEW! (2/9/23)

    Doesn’t it look like the wiper will do a horrible job at cleaning the passenger’s view? And thus, also the driver’s view to the right? For example when a huge truck throws slush on the windshield in winter.
  2. Cybertruck competitor's mid-gate

    Is Midgate the same as Watergate?
  3. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    I’m a bit perplexed why anyone believes these new dates. As an R&D exec for many years, if you announce a delay of >1y, then you are holding back some risk in that statement, and that is your accuracy, i.e., it could be 2 or 3y. If you announce a delay of a few weeks, you have risk in that...
  4. Canada's Upcoming 20% Surtax [Closed For Politics]

    Hi, perhaps a stupid auestion here, but if I buy CT in the US, pay sales tax, use it in the US for 1 year, then bring it to Canada - I will pay sales tax again on the black book value, correct? i.e., pay sales tax twice, perhaps Canadian luxury tax and no green rebate? That’s actually the...
  5. Polestar crash

    The eye’s dynamoc range is significantly better than cameras. So the raw data for a human should be better. Then it’s a competiton for processing that data.
  6. Import from US to Canada to save money

    I’m Canadian, living in Texas. Without a credit history in the US, you are out of luck for a US loan. If the car indicates Made in USA, there are no duties. For my US Audi, I am told the warranty carries into Canada. Likewise, I understand there are no certification issues for newer cars brought...
  7. Elon Musk's internet via satellite arouses the interest of Deutsche Telekom

    Not so far. Only offered as a self install satellite dish to be put on a house, with a modem inside the house and then wifi for internet access, like most satellite systems. No LTE, no 5G.
  8. Keyless entry

    Alexa, open my Cybertruck door?
  9. Chinese quality concerns.

    I lived in Guangzhou and helped set up a factory in China. We were a Canadian company. Standards and processes were identical to Canada. Components were the same (from China). There was zero difference between the Canadian and Chinese products after we got the lines working with appropriate...
  10. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    I live in a cold area of Canada - Quebec. Average temp in winter is -10 to -15C approx. It does go to -20C or lower for perhaps 15+ days a winter. -30C would be exceedingly rare, say 5 days a year. A bad 20-25 days a year in range isn’t going to sway my purchase of a CT!
  11. Cybertruck Concept Blueprint Art

    So wifey asked me a good question today. Can our dog sit in the back middle area, with his front legs on the front middle section, to look out the window between us, as he has done in all our other SUVs? It looks like it. But is there any reason this wouldn’t be possible?
  12. Cybertruck vs Humvee (HMMWV)

    That is a memorable post. Especially, “It wouldn’t pull a greasy string out of a fat cat’s ass.” A new benchmark for towing capacity. Thanks for the color!
  13. Elon Confirmed: Cybertruck Colors Options Will Require Wrap

    For the inexperienced, if you wrap it, and the wrap is bad, and you want to re-wrap or just go back to stainless, is that an easy exercise or would it potentially damage the surface of the stainless? My concern is new vehicle, new material, and thus some wrap companies that don't get it right...
  14. Custom vanity license plates - have you ordered yours yet??

    Yes. This is a real plate! I guess you only need a real car for vehicle registration. Just order from the SAAQ web-site.
