The funny thing is I just realised the Cybertruck bed isn’t long enough to carry tatamis (for aikido practise) without them sticking out the back. Whereas the much shorter ID.Buzz was fine for that (after dropping seats) — and that’s the shorter European version! That realisation made me wince a bit. That’s the benefit of being able to expand the space by dropping seats.
Model Y from back of front seats to opening is between 83" - 73" depending on seat position, beating the CT for longer cargo. The fold-down seat configuration of an SUV is often more practical for the occasional cargo-carrying activity than a pickup. A Rivian R1S has a lot more cargo space with the seats folded than an R1T. A Ford Expedition Max carries a lot longer cargo than an F150. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Unfortunately they sized the bed for play and not for work. 6’ is pretty useless to trades people who work with pipe or lumber. Unless you make a cyber rack, 10’ of pipe is not staying in the bed unless there was a pass through or something like that.

I looked at the Ford lightning and it too has an impractical bed size. Once again a play truck, not a work truck.

Who knows, by the time I actually get the opportunity to order 1, I might be playing more than working the past 48 years.

I may have been different but I had a new construction plumbing company in the 80's and I had all my pickup outfitted with racks. All pipe was loaded on that. Rarely did we ever throw it in the bed.

That’s assuming it’s possible. At the moment we have no info on that. And still it’s not enough for carrying more than a couple tatamis as the window is quite low.

Sub 19' means a touch under 228". F150, Ram, Silverado, etc crew cab trucks are all 232". Rivian R1T is 217". The Ram Quad Cab is 229" with a 6'4" bed (cab is smaller than the crew). Ram Crew Cab 5'7" bed is also 229". The truck is a tiny bit smaller in length than a typical full size truck. Significantly longer than a R1T.
I would characterize 10 inches longer as “significantly longer”.

Oops. “Wouldn’t”
That's like saying Brian o'Conner almost had Dominic Torreto in movie 1.

Or a 1 second faster 0-60 isn't much
