Elon says......

"It was unveiled in 2019, for a $99 deposit. Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, it will be a damn fine product. We are tracking to be in production middle of next year. Tooling install starting in next few months. "




Soooooo it’s gonna cost more. Shock. No lead time reveal on an event.

God I want that top light bar in the final design!
I expect it to be part of production. Moving matrix LEDs with configuration settings and manual control from the cab.

Taken in context, I'm thinking we can add around $4-$9K to the announced prices but this is kind of a difficult comparison because he said the configured specs will be different too. I'm confident most details and features will surprise to the upside but there may be a spec or two that has been downgraded for practical reasons. Maybe the load capacity will not be 3500 lbs. due to tires rated for that much weight not meeting other performance characteristics they thought were more important. Installation of production equipment begins in the next couple of months and he stated with conviction that the Cybertruck will be a "damn fine machine!"

I think he's smart to keep a lid on the details until we get closer to deliveries because they should retain the ability to fine-tune exact specs, features and prices as they get the production equipment installed and tested and contracts for tires and such finalized with suppliers. It is a brand new engineering design, after all. Nothing like this has ever been done in the history of the automotive world. Any one who disagrees with that and starts bringing up the DeLorean, etc. will just be highlighting their ignorance of what the Cybertruck is.

Announcing more details now would lock them in unnecessarily and leave them vulnerable to legitimate criticism if they adjusted them again before production. They are being smart by keeping a lid on the details until the time is right.

I agree with this part.

Where the heck are they charging it? We know of the supercharger/megacharger they use on the GigaNevada-Fremont route.

-Crissa
Would it make any sense for them to put the Semi charger just inside one of the bays of the Gigafactory? It's not like they have to worry about exhaust emissions inside. They could unload and charge at the same time.

That doesn't help them when they're on the route between Austin and Fremont.

Patience and Faith my friend! The time is much needed to perfect the greatest product that Tesla has ever created! Possibly the greatest vehicle ever produced.
