  1. Range Extender Battery Pack increases range to 470+ miles and costs $16K 🔋

    My prediction above is if in 2025 the price of the bottom trim is $61,000 for a single motor RWD 250mi and with 2026 estimated average price for all units sold of all trims about $70,000. 2019 Nov reveal price of single motor RWD 240mi trim was $40K. If in 2026 Tesla lowers the price of bottom...
  2. Cybertruck production rate reportedly 60 trucks an hour (as of 12/1/23)

    How about a painted fully assembled car rolling off the end of the production line on AVERAGE about every 40 seconds (of course at times when line is running normally). Some times it is a little faster. Tesla Giga Shanghai Model Y ---------------------------------------- Tesmanian commenter...
  3. Cybertruck Engineering Innovations - Great Summary

    Yup, dual motor Cybertruck despite weight savings from reduction of overall size by 5%, exterior stainless steel metal thickness decrease to 1.8mm from 3mm (40%), removal of 6th seat, tailgate ramp, sail pillar storage, after all those major weight reductions the payload capacity dropped...
  4. Range Extender Battery Pack increases range to 470+ miles and costs $16K 🔋

    Yes, use the back seat area. 1 or 2 Modular stack-able swappable modules would be great.
  5. Somebody PLEASE tell me how THICK the STEEL is!

    In official Tesla video a Tesla engineer said "UP TO 1.8mm" thick hard stainless steel. So significantly less than 3mm and there must be some places it is less than 1.8mm thick. More info at Cybertruck Owners Club thread: Not 3mm. Only UP TO 1.8mm stainless but still stop bullets .45-cal Tommy...
  6. Stainless steel thickness not 3mm but UP TO 1.8mm thick. Still stop bullets from .45-cal Tommy gun and Special Forces 9mm MP5 machine pistol

    In official Tesla video a Tesla engineer said Cybertruck panels only "UP TO 1.8mm" thick hard stainless steel. So significantly less than 3mm and there must be some places where it is even less than 1.8mm thick. Assuming metal in door panels are the maximum thickness that means just 1.8mm of...
  7. Range Extender Battery Pack increases range to 470+ miles and costs $16K 🔋

    Today, at price $79K+ there are not "MILLIONS of people who would buy this Vehicle (340mi dual-motor AWD or 342mi tri-motor AWD )". Even in 2025/2026 when/(IF) the cheaper single motor rear drive for $61K arrives there are not "MILLIONS of people who would buy this Vehicle". All three trims...
  8. Jason Camissa's Cybertruck Review Video & Podcast -- A MUST WATCH

    Yes, the 320 mile top range on the 2024 Cybertruck (without the in-bed batttery extender) is less than the 500mi range of original 2019 Cybertruck tri-motor reveal but there was much higher then anticipated inflation while the Cybertruck did get important improvements: steer by wire (SbW) with...
  9. Cybertruck BAW does have alternate resting/parking position

    Hey, when is this forum going get a section just for the BAW!!!??? :cool: Supposedly Cybertruck BAW does have alternate resting/parking position at bottom of windshield. (BAW discussion, timestamp: 58 min 56 sec) -------------------------------- Jason's 3-day Exclusive with the Cybertruck...
  10. Ramcharger- Best of Both Worlds?

    Looks like Chevy Volt, depending on mode & power demands, ICE can engage a mechanical connect to wheels. The BMW i3 with REx option might have been only hybrid to completely mechanically isolate the ICE engine from transmission/wheels at all times. ------------------------------------------...
  11. Ramcharger- Best of Both Worlds?

    Consider that Ford is losing $10K-15K on Lightning. Now to estimate RamCharger PHEV, reduce Lightning battery pack by 30% and add in all the ICE stuff (engine, fuel tank, fuel system, emissions control, exhaust, catalytic converter, ...) + 130KW electrical generator. Complex system to make...
  12. Bulletproof window option announcement on Thursday?

    The original design intent by Franz does not matter anymore once Tesla's 2019 reveal talked about bullet-proof and in last 4 years Elon's continued & now elevated rhetoric (now machine guns!) touting it as bullet-proof . To customers, bullet-proof is now a base attribute.
  13. Bulletproof window option announcement on Thursday?

    So that would have to be someplace outside the USA. Maybe someplace like "socialist" western Europe which have tight gun control laws. The five U.S. states with the highest rate of people shot in road rage incidents are New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. These states make...
  14. Bulletproof window option announcement on Thursday?

    Hopefully there is Tesla option for handgun bullet resistant glass.
  15. I Cancelled my Cybertruck for the F150 Lightning

    Lack of deposits is not the problem. There are cobalt deposits in USA and also Canada (much more than U.S.). See info later about cobalt and silver mining town in Ontario, Canada named Cobalt. The main issue is cobalt mining, processing, and refining is very nasty in environmental terms...
  16. 3000Kg+ Curb weight is too much for europe

    Jan Vogel (of YT channel TeslaFix ), analyst of German & European auto market, disagrees that CyberTruck will be illegal in Europe. ------------------------------------ CyberTruck Illegal in Europe? Guest: Jan Vogel (of YT channel TeslaFix ) Nov 27, 2023 My Tesla Weekend -----...
  17. Bulletproof window option announcement on Thursday?

    Small arms fire usually comes from assailants that are close and possibly almost point black close. Touting something to the masses as bullet resistant without the spokesperson/company ALWAYS SAYING (every-time, not sometimes) they only mean the metal part of door will cause many to have a...
  18. Bulletproof window option announcement on Thursday?

    Would need huge increases in battery energy density too. Even if we could make force-fields today to stop bullets it probably would only be practical to protect stationary locations because of extra weight/space of the force-field equipment and amount of energy needed to power it. Even 200KWh...
