I agree that physics dictates range, that is why I am interested in what they will present on battery day. I really hope that the CyberTrucks will have the latest in battery technology. We will all have to be zen-like in our wait.
Now the countdown begins. When will the first Cybertruck roll off out of the factory? When will we see one in the wild? How many accidents will be caused by people staring in amazement as the ignore the fact that the car ahead of them just stopped?
There was talk about a follow-on to the cybertruck that would be smaller, but no other details have been provided. I imagine it would be the equivalent of a Ford Ranger. My best guess is we will have to wait until GigaBerlin and Texas are at full capacity before anything like that will be...
Did anyone watch Godzilla King of the Monsters? We should give the Cybertruck a similar title. How about Emperor of ALL Trucks? Also you get the super cool abbreviation of EAT (their lunch) which is exactly what it is going to do to all trucks and SUVs.
one step closer to reality. I really loved how much light there is in the interior. I also think the seats are really cool looking. The production version is going to be better than this prototype which means we will have the best vehicle ever produced.
I really hope they build the Cybertruck in Austin, Texas. It would give me an excuse to visit Texas, attend Fully Charged Live, and take a tour of the factory. Austin is the one town in Texas that is culturally diverse enough to please all visitors.
I am glad that I preorder with the FSD option. I do not know if I will use it that much; I really enjoy driving, but I wanted to make sure that I have the option to let the vehicle drive itself while on long distance road trips.
I know. I was really disappointed that battery day had to be delayed because of a global pandemic. It is probably the best excuse ever for not having a large gathering of people to talk about batteries, but I am with you on wanting to hear about the new battery technology and will the cybertruck...
Rather than Texas, how about Nebraska? There is space, rail, interstate, and a pool of college graduates coming out of Lincoln that might want to be part of one of the best engineering firms of our lifetime.
Working for Tesla would be WAY better than watching corn and soy grow.
Manufacturing has proved it can produce complex vehicles with few failures. Unfortunately, the pure ICE and the hybrids require a lot of maintenance to keep them performing flawlessly. I drive around 25K per year and as a result have to get my car services every couple of months. I believe the...
If there is a spare tire, where do you think they are going to store it? Or do you think they will just go with a tire repair kit and use the onboard compressor to re-inflate the tire until a replacement can be procured?
80 MPH speed is definitely going to impact range. The next test will be to drive the same route with the Cybertruck with the same load and see if it has the same range limitations. If that is the case, then we can definitely assert that the range of the trimotor is comparable to the ICE you drove.
