another way to look at the same reasoning:It seems like most posted info is targeted to be the best. Since payload did not meet originally announced specs but still better than other BEV trucks, range may not meet the original 500 but beat Silverado on paper.
It doesn’t. Those types of devices are made to shatter tempered glass which most autos use for all windows apart from the windshield (which is laminated glass). Some “higher end” cars are using tempered glass for windows for noise reduction, Tesla included.I have one of those hammers in my car to use in case my car goes in the water and I need to escape.
How does that work with shatter proof windows?
Now that there a handful of 1/2 ton electric competitors, the race is on for HD!3500 HO turbo diesel but could likely get away with a 2500 for most stuff I do. A few times a year I tow 22k but about once a week I tow 14k of water to my house though so it’s a bare minimum for me.
I agree that there is a distinction on what they want to share at the event and outside of it. What is more interesting to me about the "listed" info is how Tesla chose to communicate this information to 1-2 million reservation holders after four years of waiting; through a third hand post on a forum. Did they lose our email address?another way to look at the same reasoning:
payload and towing are listed for a reason
other things aren’t listed for a reason
personally, I think they’re just dripping out info that doesn’t need to be managed (one way or the other)
Tesla won’t but as things stand, Ford, GM and RAM are going to blow themselves out of the water unless they can get their costs down.The Cybertruck is not going to blow the Ford F150 out of the water, as fan boys have hyped.
The CT will be a great ELECTRIC vehicle that happens to look funky and can be a pickup.
Ford will still sell a lot of trucks. The Cybertruck will probably take a sliver each out of Ram, GMC and Ford pickup sales. But certainly not wipe them out.
