The Cybertruck is the same size as thre most popular trucks in the USA.1.) There will be a ton of quality competition out in 2022. (25% cancellation). The CT is really big. Many buyers will opt for the Rivian SUV due to size alone.
Ford F-150, GMC/Chevy 1500, RAM 1500
There are almost 2 million sold every year.
The Cybertruck reservation estimate is close too 1 million.
You could have a 66.6 cancel rate and still have so many buyers (330K) that it would take Tesla two years to fulfill the backlog.
And all those buyers never even touched a Cybertruck and most will have waited over years .
Other buyers will wait until Cybertruck ships & they can get a demo or know someone that has a Cybertruck.
The day the Cybertruck starts being delivered to customers will be the day the Cybertruck back-orders starts growing to the moon.
Why do you talk about price $70K just like the Detriot ICE "experts" did.2.) Who knows what financial condition each of us will be in. I think a ton of people put down $100 with no idea how they would afford a $70,000 truck.
The base without FSD Cybertruck is $40K. The features on the base $40K model far exceeds the $40K ICE base model. Many people will buy the $40K Cybertruck. The next Cybertruck dual motor without FSD is $50K. That $50K is less than the price of average sold ICE ($54K) and again has more features people want than ICE. The most expensive Cybertruck tri-motor without FSD is $70K. The most expensive model starts taking market share from the more expensive & hugely fuel inefficient ICE heavy duty range. All of this does not include the huge TCO savings of BEV truck.
90% (almost 3 million) of ICE buyers pay $40K-$60K and the Cybertruck has that price range well covered.
