My wife and I are retired and we are purchasing the cybertruck for totally different reasons. My wife is handicapped and needs a motorized wheelchair that weighs about 50 pounds. Having to lift that weight into the back of a car trunk is difficult. The cybertruck is perfect. Also as we age driving will be difficult and the cybertruck will be the solution two are driving problem with the upcoming autonomous driving.. Tesla has proved to be the vehicle of choice for us. My question is will Tesla start production on the cybertruck earlier than 2021.Before the CT was announced I was planning on buying either a M3 or Model Y,,,,,, but then,,,, I saw the Cybertruck and learned about all its many unique, practical, and cutting edge features, and said : I’ve GOTA have one of those! Especially the top 500mi range version which I pre ordered.
I’ve never owned a truck or SUV in my entire life. Anyone else order one that doesn’t actually need a truck?
I also plan on going to California to take delivery of my Cybertruck. I am selling the idea to my family as an "epic road trip". It will be epic because it will be their first coast-to-coast trip in a vehicle. I plan on going to Yosemite, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, and all of the other fun and interesting sights along the way.I'm a current picup owner. While I do not need a pickup 99% of the time for towing or hauling, there is that time once or twice a year where I do need to tow/haul things. If you're a home owner, you really should own a pickup. Can I rent one? Sure, however, there are problems with renting. No rental pickup has my wiring harness for my trailer, so I cannot haul my trailer. Also, in Texas, if you're going to haul a trailer, it has to be with a vehicle you own. There are other benefits to owning a pickup. I carry my golf clubs in the bed of my current pickup all the time. I can't carry them in the trunk of my Model 3, because that would use up all my trunk space. Also, many many many times a year I do use the bed to put something in that I wouldn't want in my car. IE: Grease, Oil, Old Wood, Paint, Metal Bars, poles, you name it. So, if you own a house, you really should own something with a bed. Also, interior space. ANYONE who's EVER sat inside a pickup, knows there's a TON more interior room in a pickup than you have in any car. It's more comfortable and there's something to be said for sitting up higher than other cars. Being able to see over the car ahead of you and anticipate that car hitting an object is something that you cannot do in a car. Example, I was driving home one day in the rain. A vehicle ahead of me was all I could see. We were going the speed limit of 70 MPH on a highway. Next thing I know, there's a 6' ladder in the road directly in front of my car. It missed my suspension on my Model 3 my an inch but did tear the fabric under the car. I was lucky. Had I been in a pickup, I might not have been able to see past the vehicle, but at least I would have been higher off the ground and wouldn't have had to worry about the ladder hitting my truck's underside. I for one, cannot wait for my Cybertruck. I plan on going to Cali to pick it up from the factory. For all the things I mentioned above. I will not be trading in my Model 3 however, because I plan on continuing to drive it and even Uber using it to help pay off bills so I can retire early. But I will have the Cybertruck for retirement.
