As stated in the other thread, it is pretty likely that this could be driven with a normal pre 1997 licence (given a laden weight under 8500kg )or with a paper based derating, and the commercial rating would allow mods for the pedestrian safety.

We need to keep the pressure up on Elon to bring us our full size CTs ! I suspect our biggest hurdle is the sheer demand in the US.

Who is with me ?

I am with you :)

I am 50/50 with the Wolverine (cool name though) i.e. half of me wants the original size and half thinks it's stupidly too big. My wife instructed me our next car should have a wide rear seat so a future pet could sit there so an OG CT would fit the bill.

My licence is 1988 or thereabouts so I'm fine.

I heard somewhere that 20/25% of pre-orders are outside of US though so Elon has the incentive.

If you'd accept the left-hand-drive version John (and it's legal there), it should come faster.

Otherwise, if the rumours of fly-by-wire steering are true, it will be easy to produce right-drive models for you.

Whichever's the case, the best of luck to you for speedy delivery. After I get mine.

I'd prefer RHD, that's why I have a Holden Ute as it's basically a modern El Camino with the steering wheel on the correct side (for UK, let's not open that can of worms). LHD is still legal in UK, years ago the E30 BMW M3 was LHD only.

Plus If I imported a US Tesla when it is not supported by the local Tesla infrastructure that could be bad. MInd you I do drive an Australian pick-up :-0

There are adapters for Tesla to Menneke, but yeah, it would be a pain. Multi-phase wiring has to be re-routed.

I am thinking that regardless of how low cost the $100 dollar reservations are, that a surprisingly large percentage of CT reservations will become actual purchases.

Australia, New Zealand, India and Japan spring to mind, so there should be a market for a RHD CT, as the CT is less than a couple of feet longer than my Navara I can live with that and will hold out but I would like a definitive answer from Tesla that we will be getting it by using our existing rules we have now for pickup trucks, also by the time the CT in in production we will be free from Europe and all it’s regulations if our government and it’s people decide to follow our own standards again.
