Musk’s Cybertruck Is Almost Here. But Will Anyone Buy The ‘Ludicrous’ Vehicle?
Yes but No
2 million $100 pre orders for a EvTruck @ $39,000
but
The real question is the CT producible?
Maybe
CT is based on a cell that is not producible. Yes Tesla after 2 years has produced 2 million 4680 NMC cells. Which means nothing Tesla needs 5-10 Billion 4680 NMC cells and there is no company no China no America no Japan company in production of Tesla CT 4680 NMC cells.
So
If you are planning to make a EvTruck but have no supplier of EvBattery is that EvTruck producible?
No!
Will anyone buy a IceTruck if they know the engine and Transmission are not available?
Will anyone buy a EvTruck if they know the EvBattery are not available and may not ever be available?
No!
A really low cost EvTruck is one thing, but producible EvTruck is another thing. CT is a 2 million preorder but is the CT producible even at any cost?
REPRODUCIBLE CT

The production rate of 4680 batteries is not a constant. It’s not even a linear increase. So it is disingenuous for you to stipulate that because in X time period they have built Y number of batteries, therefore they will not be able to build 2 million CTs “at any cost”. Can they build 2M CTs tomorrow? Nope. But I can guarantee you that they will produce more CTs in month 3 than month 1. And in month 3 they will build more batteries than in month 1. And the same goes for month 12 vs. month 6. And again in Month 24 vs Month 12, and so on.

Now, to the assertion or assumption that the 4680 is the only battery that the CT can use, because of the design…

False. Ok, this is an assumption of mine based on my design experience. I believe you can look at a structural 4680 pack and state that the pack has to support X weight across the pack with y torsional rigidity and z lateral rigidity and w longitudinal rigidity and stated dimensions. You can then substitute the 4680 pack with an LMFP-EIEIO battery pack with equal or greater numbers in structural capacity, matched dimensions, at or greater power density, and at or below weight very easily. It’s a freaking rectangle! (Rectangle prism) It’s not a super complex shape. And the same goes for the 4680 MY. I think this is one of the design benefits of this structural pack arrangement. Find a better battery? Make it fit in a pack this big and this strong and poof, Bobs your uncle.

My grandfather had a trailer on a lakefront land reservation and based on set rules, you couldn't build a home on the land (trailers only).. but a loophole allowed a home to be built AROUND the trailer.

If people don't like the look of CT or thinks it looks too bear, fine, but imagine the skins, the mods, the shells, the decals and attachments you could put on a vehicle with specs that can't be beat.
You're NOT beating around the 'brush'

Yes, some bias but nothing like the wholesale total corruption by all major media platforms and major social media that has occurred since Fox News & Rupert came on the scene.
Yeah, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post, AP, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google, etc. have all exposed themselves as incredibly biased for one side. Fox News & Rupert for the other.

Met Dame Elizabeth Murdoch when she was a volunteer at the McClelland Art Gallery in the early 2000's. Fabulous person.....greatly missed here in Oz.

All of this hype is fun to read. I bought an S years ago, burned the tires off. Etc. Etc. I ordered one to close out my life, I'm 80, I hope it last that long. It will be fun to climb out as a gezzer. I hope we have a contest, who's the oldest owner??
You’re only 80. You’ve got at least another two teslas left. (Just be sure to get the FSD option)

I've enjoyed lots of programming from your ABC.

Do they not actually barbecue sea bugs?
