Only 5? Lol. Really, all kidding aside, but for my sons and I and the rest of family, the list is truly endless. I am getting tri motor and my 22 year old is buying the RWD. We figure, as long as both have FSD, all of us are good and cover in town and light in town crap and then the tri for our hunting and family trips. Can even take both vehicles with a total of 12 adults if ever needed. 😳 right? 🤣 anyways, we are loving this!!!! 😍

In the off-chance we don't have V2G charging available, the CT still has 120v receptacles in the bed that can be tapped during power outages.
There won't be V2G but there will be 240V receptacles and given that the charger (48A) can potentially be used as an inverter (no guarantee that Tesla will actually do that) there is the possibility that your truck could be interconnected (critical circuits panel, transfer switch) to your house in the same manner as an 11 kW generator.

Nice ajdelange🤣 true.. also, just to be clear, V2G is just something I’d like to have happen sometime in the near future. 😊

Did you drop a 0? It accelerates at 0.94g. That makes thrust

.94*9.8*2700 = 24872.4 N
With 21 wheels that gives .94*9.8*2700*21*2.54/100 = 13266.9 N - m which is 9786 ft-lb.

1. Wow factor. It will blow people's minds.
2. Interior space. Don't have to choose between seating 6 adults OR carrying a lot of cargo. Can carry 6 adults PLUS tons of luggage on long trips.
3. Economy. It should cost less to operate and maintain than my Prius.
4. Safety. I'm expecting it to be the safest car ever tested by the NTSB. In fact, it might leave CyberTruck-shaped holes in their test equipment.
5. Off-roading capability.

The ONLY reason I ordered was to gamble on FSD. If Cybertruck has functional FSD when it gets to Australia, it will be so valuable that even if I can’t afford to buy it outright I could sell it at significant profit, selling it cheaper than Tesla sells at full price. FSD will probably cost $50-$100k, $150 seems like a good bet.

At first I didn't have any idea what you were talking about and then it dawned on me that whilst Coriolis is to the right of the velocity vector in the northern hemisphere it is to the left down there and the autopilot would have to be reworked to allow for that. But the big insight came when it clicked on me, after all those years, that this is what pushes you guys into the left lane!

15) No lead-acid battery that goes bad after 5 years

All Tesla’s to date still use a 12V lead acid battery to run computers, interior electronics, etc. Tesla vehicles are totally reliant on the 12V battery to function. They were a PITA to change out on the early Model S models but Tesla relocated the battery for easier access on later models.
