Canada can be peaceful because they have a strong democratic neighbor. They also have a crap load of valuable natural resources with low population density to pump up their way of life.

Canadians are great and they have a pretty sweet gig.
Wasn’t sweet gig growing into that way of life. Canadians were not allowed to buy a refrigerator in 60’s Canada. So my family would load one into the fishing boat under tarp to take up to our Ontario host where we fished on the Red River above Lake of the Woods.
Canadians aren’t wealthy by American standards when fourth richest is the FORD dealer in Calgary. That is what makes Canadians more friendly, homogeneous in contrast to have-have not America where healthcare plays as a health for wealth transaction. Canadians for most part all have a common shared narrative right down to the healthcare in which they all suffer equally.
To be sure, Canadians snowbird to locales few Americans can afford or enjoy but that’s the distinction. Canadians get together over drinks call up an air carrier(Canadian) ask how much to charter a whole plane to Panama. Americans who would not find that many friends are left paying retail high season rates to fly off to the Caribbean are few. So Florida and Disneyworld punch their tickets.

Essentially what I suggested! Only I included the option to software limit 4motor to 2 motors!
KISS, Elon would eliminate OTA update ‘cuz weak bridge to customer. Tesla can software enable right on the monitor enabling the consumer to control his Cybertruck configuration and simply paying his Tesla Supercc for the amount consumed same bill that he pays for charging(aka pay-as-you-go).
A first step toward Robo…

Man, it must be Canadians bash on US citizens week or something. Damn, missed that on our calendar
I mean wow. Peace and love huh?
🤣🤣.
So I decided to look it up.

Why Canada is known for peace?

Canada's lead role as a peaceful nation is due to the consistent devaluation of internal conflict and violence, resulting in the promotion of unity, interpersonal harmony amongst its citizens, and sustainable development. This attitude is what made it the ideal destination for people worldwide.

Really? Hmmm. That’s not the energy I’m getting. 😉
If I understand it correctly---and this this subject is beyond the normal construct of the article---Canada has laws which make it illegal to, in essence, be mean.
I came across this and asked the wife: "If Canadians have laws that force them to be nice, what kind of savages are they?"
Remember, people, tongue-in-cheek.

You had to reserve one in the first four months, and then your expected wait-time was from one to three years, and by 'recently' you mean 'last year' and by 'reserve' you mean 'nearly no one qualifies for a pro when their number comes up' so the configurator says you have to pay twice as much.

Being as I have a Cybertruck reservation, that's a bad deal.

-Crissa
it was $100 to reserve. seemed like a great way to hedge a bet. at the end of the day, $40k pro's exist. $40k CT's do not and probably never will.

Okay, this helps to keep me off a ledge. This I can deal with.

Screenshot 2022-08-06 114621.png
To help widen your thinest of ledges, Tesla priced the Cybertruck in 2019. It did not estimate. Tesla not only knew Cybertruck COGS it also had to have in-hand contracts to lock-in its prices.
SO you are left with a residual inflationary impact on Cybertruck which leaves you standing owing a fraction of that amount that super-duper calculator shows you.
THUS that ledge just grew at least 33% wider knowing Tesla locked-in its pricing back in 2020.

I cannot find any reference to that in history.

...They 'exist' only to confirmed fleet buyers. They don't 'exist' as something people can buy. Nor as something you can fill a fleet with, either.

So at this point, I say they're BS.

$40k standard range pro is available to regular consumers. I'm sure they're a small percentage of the total deliveries so far but they do exist. extended range pro's are fleet only.

Are you advocating ~10% of existing 1.*MM RN’s switch or else? Even if its a $20k USD Cybermail?
‘Cuz crazy, is who RN-type people are?

You onboarded Cybertruckownersclub.com a year after the Launch Party. You haven’t been paying attention. This cohort leans Boomer and the next largest is <30yrs. IIRC.

Cybertruck is the sole reason these owners bought-in because it wasn’t crazy as OEM’s dinosaur party.
We have very early Model 3 and Model Y VINS, and I was an early member of Tesla Owners Online. Perhaps late to this site, but very experienced in “waiting for the new model to finally arrive” and all of the speculation and rumors and worries that go along with that.

Lessons we learned with Model 3 in 2016-2018:
1. It will look like what they have shown
2. It will take longer than planned
3. It will cost more than planned
4. Initial quality issues will be over-hyped
5. You will love it more than you expected

This is true. I got in line as soon as ordering opened last summer. I was sent a configurator in January of this year and my pro f150 would have been built in may/june and delivered soon after. I cancelled thinking CT production was starting in '22.

I regret that decision because i could have easly sold it for a profit or just enjoyed it waiting on ct

Except he said no such thing.

He very specifically did not.

Go back. Nowhere did he say the price would increase.

-Crissa
Since you obviously cant read whats in the news, I pull the 47 seconds clip from the shareholders meeting so you can hear for yourself. PRICING WILL INCREASE.
