yeah...so most people haven't see a Cybertruck IN PERSON and so it's easy to say: pass.
But--once these are on the road, in numbers like Rivians, I think a lot of people who had no intention of buying will be attracted to the look, the tech, the performance, and above all, the utility. Heck...
12/3 Colorado northern mountains had a significant snow storm. I’m going to pull dashcam videos of my drive over Berthoud pass (11,306 ft) on a new thread. LEDs and no vehicle waste heat is an issue for lighting, front and more so rear. Rivian’s recessed headlights is unfortunately a massive...

to the " bed is too short" crowd, what curretly available vehicle meets your needs?
Seems like a van, like Sprinter 170 wheelbase, either standard length (165 interior cargo) or extended length, is the way to haul long stuff if it needs to be fully enclosed. Why?
Sales staff said-- "can't let people in...Cybertruck is locked...belongs to engineering team...don't know..."
I think every Cybertruck on display is going to be a cleaning headache for the sales staff, once the masses are allowed in.
I went to Tesla Littleton, Colorado service center to see the Cybertruck. Model 3 looks so small in comparison. As others have said, the scale of the Cybertruck is imposing, substantial, and at the same time—just right.
I’m not surprised the cost of the dual motor is same as dual motor X. So...
FYI Roybi has a low pressure battery operated hand-held compressor.
I finally understand what the pump pictured in the rear under-seat storage is for: tent inflation.
"Edmunds shows that the average MSRP for the full-size truck segment is $65,158 and $76,281 for heavy-duty trucks."
Cybertruck dual motor price and range is very similar to Rivian R1T dual motor.
Let's see what Chevy can do with thier Silverado EV.
Need to tow highly un-aerodynamic trailer...
RIvian R1T dual motor $73K plust $6k for 300-340 mile range aka Large battery pack. So Rivian in this config is basically same range and same price as dual motor Cybertruck.
Cybertruck Dual motor $79,990 less $7,500 federal tax credit point of sale 1/1/2024 onwards = $72,490...
Delivery not soon enough!!!
The dual motor version is priced the same as the Model X. No surprise--both are similar: range, interesting tech, unique.
Price of the dual motor Cybertruck at $80k is the same as Rivian R1T with "road" wheels and base "LA Silver" paint. Range is similar...
This is the approx 112 kWh (usable) battery. Specs from Lucid.com
Yes, its a lot more money than a Model X plus a Model Y; I can buy both Teslas in Colorado for around $105k after tax credits. But the range is appealing. Two weeks to Cybertruck specs!
Or do it with Lucid's approach: highly efficient components like the motos, inverters, and battery architecture. The range achieved with the Lucid Air and battery size is impressive. If Lucid achieves stated metrics for the Gravity, that' would be a huge industry benchmark. Details from the...
If you need to tow long distance, this seems like a good temporary (3-8 years...?) solution. There's also a huge need for RV travel trailers, cargo trailers, etc. to put aerodynamic efficiency as design principle #1.
Hopefully Tesla Semi has an impact on long-range non-commercial towing...
Agree on the traditional selling model and its inherent problems....
FYI Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic $40K instock, Pueblo, CO. I didn't look at what options are included for the price increase from 37,500 stock. I priced one out around $45k. For farm/ranch use, as much as I would like an...
Great the Cyberquad is back but unfortunately "Seat support spring removed" which means no suspension on the rear axle. Ok for an urban environment but not so good for rural/off road. Oh, wait...that's the excuse I was looking for to buy the Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic (ignoring wait list/order...
