You understand that putting a trailer brake on a touch screen, no door handles, carpet mats, rear touchscreen, 6' bed, etc negates most notion of it being a legit work truck.He’s said it would have quad motors. Once 18 months ago. He’s never said it would be a luxury vehicle.
He’s said it needs to be affordable about 100 times. The whole launch was around the fact that it would be an affordable truck.
No, we do not.
Did you even watch the launch?
Have you watched anything about this truck? It has never been a ”designer truck”. It has always been a utility vehicle. Look at where they take this truck. How many public appearances are on construction sites? Most recently at a construction site with a tool rack and tools on it.
He said the prices were not the same. They've gone up. He said it last year...going out from 69,000 is over 70, no?
It's fine that you believe this could be a work truck, but there's a reason so many are disappointed with the last few reveals. What is currently being shown is a smaller, less rugged version of the original with less luxury than some of Elons promises/prototypes all with the talk of higher prices and difficult to make affordable. Plus it appears to have ridiculously massive pillars in your line of sight.
It's missing 2 target audiences at the same time. There will absolutely be enthusiast who will buy it regardless, but you think those things are what will turn the truck market upside down?
Elon is vague and often lies/exaggerates...so everyone here interprets his affordability, demand, prices won't be the same in their own way, but you have to see enthusiasm is dropping.
