CT is entirely unibody, Rivian has a traditional frame.
Hardware is there? They'll have to do some retraining for CT specifically but I don't think it's controversial to say it will have it. The problem is not so much that CT isn't FSD ready but that FSD itself isn't ready ...
I'm thinking Cammisa might have meant to say 1386 cells? With two modules that are 8-cell wide and two modules 6-cell wide. That would be a pack longer than 92" though, could also be 1360 cells in four modules that are 8-cell wide.
Really should have been designed to fit into the under bed storage area. Between its design and how it's been introduced it strikes me as something they concocted late into the game as a response to competitors and currently only exists in render form.
We've seen Tesla tweet and post photos of 4680 production in Austin well before line #2 was installed.
Regardless of cell output the elephant in the room is the issue of energy density, as was discussed in another thread. I know you're firmly in the double stack camp but if you...
That's a gooseneck, I also said many not all. So, yes, you're bound to find some that would work. However even some of those, depending on the height of the neck, would impinge upon the pillars when maneuvering:
Couple the sail pillar clearance issue to that relating to chassis cabs and...
Jfc you're dense. It's not a complaint, I replied to somebody that said the race is on for the first "HD" EV truck by saying the Cybertruck's design would not be well suited and that Tesla would be better off making something along the lines of the design they showed in 2017 for that purpose. In...
We don't know what their 4680 cost is at the moment, there's a lot of equipment and start up related expenses to spread over not a lot of volume.
Unclear if that was the case. They said 4680 line #1 in Texas is being converted from V1 to V2 so presumably that was also supplying the now defunct...
All you need to do is look at the photo posted previously, that sail pillars would interfere with many 5th wheel trailers is self evident.
If only you’d have bothered reading you’d have known I was discussing an “HD” (i.e. 3/4+ ton) version of the Cybertruck.
While largely immaterial to the 1/2 ton market, it would be naive to think fleet customers, who make up ~40% of Ford 'Super Duty' sales, would be willing to put up with those limitations, along with most retail buyers who need those capabilities.
