The video overlay that was originally done with the first prototype showed very little difference between the CT and the R1T. I recommend watching it again for reference:



About 2 minutes into the video is the R1T and I guess we have to subtract off 4" in our heads since the original prototype was said to be 232" and now they are saying 228" or less.

I guess your right, I’m just disappointed I guess
Fair enough, and you aren't alone. Perhaps disappointed is how I feel about all the crap predictions that are being made, and frustrated with the long (but necessary) wait. People are crawling out of the woodwork to predict everything. I understand in a way; they will get lots of attention because we are all starved for information, but predictions aren't information, they are just predictions, and if the person making them isn't actually any more informed that us then it really is a waste of time and energy.

For perspective, the Rivian is about 10 feet away, the Cybertruck is about 20 feet away. Proportions of each vehicle are pretty different, too. The cabs are different shapes, CT frunk way smaller, the vault seems higher than the Rivians bed, the CT's window starts higher than the Riv, they are different animals altogether. Rivian looks like what you would expect an electric truck to look like, Cybertruck looks like a tank from Mars in the future...man I'm glad I ordered one of those.

Didn't we see a picture already from the Franz event of a CT next to a Rivian?

Even with the Cybertruck being Infront of the Rivian distorting the sizes you can still easily tell the CT is wider
Camera angle with one point perspective. Take a ruler and assuming the tires of each vehicle are in line with each other on the pavement, line up the tops of the Rivians tires to see how they translate to the Cyber trucks tires which should be significantly larger..... they seem to be. Is Cyber Truck in lowest ride height and Rivian at it's highest?

Yep, bad angle and camera settings are set for home sale advertising. The Rivian is very small and can only fit 4 adults comfortably. Also the bed can hold only about 2 coolers. It's a toy for 100k.🤣
I’ve driven the Rivian and I am already impressed

No offense, but this angle is terrible. Things that are closer to you appear larger. The CyberTruck sits lower than the Rivian when the air suspension is completely lowered, which it appears to be on both. This makes the CyberTruck more aerodynamic. When the CyberTruck is fully raised, who knows?

Added perspective lines. It's shorter, but may be longer.

This helps show the first thing I noticed in the original post. The top of the vault gate is almost as high as the S roof. When my wife gets home I’ll compare my 🌮 bed height.
