With Ford's track record of electrical problems, the last thing I would buy from them is an electric vehicle.
I thought Jaguar had the electrical problems.........

I think they are ignoring not just Musk‘s word, but the fairly public struggles Tesla went through scaling up.
Sandy Munro said in one of his videos that Elon failed to hire the right people(experienced in production) in manufacturing and could have avoided some of those problems Tesla had scaling up.

Not sure if Rivian has hired the experienced people needed in production.

Oddly, Musk suggested manufacturing is one of Teslas strengths now. Baptism by fire? I certainly thing some of the things they have done to simplify manufacturing have been inspired since the Model 3.

I think the Cybertrucks design is a direct result of frustrations of the Model 3 launch.

Rivian having Ford as an investors shroud have some help here.

I'm eyeing the Jeep Wrangler BEV which is supposedly coming. Before getting my Model 3 I was a die-hard Jeep nut. If it's available before the CT I may jump to that.
the jeep BEV has been coming for years. I had a lifted 4 door Wrangler and really enjoyed it - but the CT is my next ride.

I rode in a Ford Lightning last week at a Ford Ride event. Lower performance? The acceleration was crazy fast. You do not need to go faster than 4 seconds 0-60 in a full size pickup. Combing over the Lightnings they had there for us to check out Ford they did a nice job designing that truck. Great frunk, tons of electric outlets, a really nice, usable truck bed. They will sell everyone they make...especially to buyers that want a full sized pickup that looks like a "normal" pickup.
lower performance as in lesser software, no charging infrastructure, Yes it has inferior specs too. but hey if you want that traditional brick look, do what floats your boat.

I'm not surprised, but I was hoping it would come sooner. Hopefully full on production will happen quickly. I can't wait to have a truck that can go 0-60 in 3 secs, tow 14k, and drive itself. Those are insane stats and I doubt anyone else will be competitive for a few years at the least.

Rivians, Rivians, hmm … nope no Rivians, Bezos wants his vans first. How’s that again? Lucid, nope no Lucids, I heard Mrs Rawlinson called him inside when the street lights came on. 😂 Face it, we’re all in this together.
I can tell you.. Lucid is coming. Hard and fast. The showroom and service center build out timelines are extremely aggressive.

Not saying they will out do Tesla by any means, but its exciting.

Lucid and Rivian both have to figure out volume production. They both have to secure large quantities of batteries. They both have to figure out profiting on cars under $80k…

Going from a couple dozen cars built to tens of thousands is a huge effort.

Lucid seems to have pretty achievable goals as far as production. Rivian is interesting in that, as mentioned above, they are already producing vehicles for Amazon.

I really want both of these companies to succeed. OEMs clearly need to be more shaken than Just having Tesla on the map.... when are NIO and Xpeng arriving? haha.

There's no one currently to get a hold of. But you have the name and email that you registered with, right?

Are you able to follow these instructions? https://www.cybertruckownersclub.co...from-the-cybertruck-reservation-website.3991/
If you are missing your email or account, the reservation may not be matched to your account.
