ok, For what it's worth I ordered a Single motor.
My needs are more cargo space than the Chevy Volt and has to be electric. My wife and I like to camp and our Winter Trekking gear takes up the back seat plus a bag on the roof racks. Summer gear is more compact, but it'd be nice to take another person or two along sometimes without renting a bigger vehicle. Also, in the years to come we may end up buying a trailer, so towing capacity of more than 0 is a bonus as I don't plan to buy another vehicle for 10 or more years. (10 years is always what I aim for, with CT's durability maybe that one will be longer)

That said, here is my top 5:
#1 cargo space galore!
#2 It is definitely unique, and I have always liked unusual car designs. (favorites growing up were VW beetle, Shelby Cobra, GMC Hummer H1, Delorian...)
#3 as an EV enthusiast, point #2 goes double. EVs that stand out bring conversation. My current daily driver is a 2012 Nissan LEAF in part because it was incredibly cheap (for an EV) to buy used, and part because it LOOKS like an EV.
#4 Towing. I miss being able to hook a trailer on since my VOLT and LEAF both have official towing capacity of 0
#5 Tesla Supercharging. I have tried a number of different brands of ChAdeMO chargers since buying the LEAF. Some are better than others but none as easy and consistently reliable as Tesla. Even if Petro Canada CCS charging is cheaper and just as fast as Tesla v3 superchargers, if I am going on a long trip I prefer the comfort that knowing even if a charger is down at the next Tesla station, there will be several others that most likely are running fine right beside it.

1. Kool Factor.
2. Big time chic magnet (yes, girls stick to stainless)!
3 . Can easily say "no" to all the people who ask to drive it.
4. Chic's Dad won't mind you keeping her out late with this one if you let him "look under the hood." Heck, he won't even mind the Astroturf in the back
5. The camping package will be perfect camouflage for the Astroturf!

1. Electric/Reduced atmospheric carbon
2. Utility
3. Longevity
4. Simplicity
5. Range, actual and comparative.
The Cybertruck will be my daily driver and my grunt truck. It will replace two I.C.E. trucks, a 1988 Dodge Dakota 4x4 sport that I use for out of town material runs, and a 1971 Ford F250 that I use for equipment and materials within the valley. It will allow me to pass the hybrid down to my son as his car.

I always think it's funny when people think the big 3 are the most American cars. I remember a study like 10 years ago saying the most American made car in terms of us labor and parts was a us made Toyota Corolla or something like that

  • Electric, less pollution, this is the future
  • 4 in 1; Pickup + SUV + off-roader + fast.....the perfect combination
  • unique design, it took me a few hours to love it though
  • 6 seater! Five wouldn’t do it for me
  • price ok-ish.........I am in Europe so a bit more expensive here

#1. It is seriously unconventional, like me.
#2. It is impervious..... well, almost..... except to huge slung steel bearings and seriously lethal projectiles.
#3. I need a new truck.
#4. I can summon my chariot (or so they say unless it is like the "bullet-proof glass).
#5. It has got to be one helluva chic magnet!

1) Stainless. Trucks don't last more than a couple years where I'm from due to rust. The main reason I don't buy new.

2) 3500 lb. payload. I haul thousands of pounds on a regular basis. But a diesel or 3/4 ton gasser isn't ideal for my other hobbies.

3) No paint and thick body panels. I drive through the woods where no roads exist on a regular basis. Hard contact with trees is very common.

4) 0-60 acceleration will allow me to sell a few sports cars and not feel like I've been castrated.

5) Not having to warm up a gas engine in the cold everyday would be great.

All 5 in one:

In the future, the ability to be able to use a Neuralink interface to interact with the Tesla vehicles. Imagine the updates/software options and possibilities.
