No... I'm a carpenter and a minivan was always the way to go... cheap reliable tons of space trucks were a waste of money, fuel, and 0 dry storage. I really wish cyber truck was a minivan pacmoore s*** in it. This will be my very first new vehicle and I'm 42 years old I've been waiting for this... I've already convinced a plumber and another Carpenter to buy the Cyber truck and I'm working on the owner of my company for the fleet change over.

Mine is only a 2015, it has been the worst car i have ever owned. Nothing but problems, has left me on the side of the road a handful of times with sensor and electronic malfunctions. Luckily i have a vast automotive background and i am in the process of swapping the motor out now (low compression in 2 cylinders :() so it hasnt cost me too much if you don't count labor. More than any vehicle with just short of 70k miles should cost anyone though. Impeccable maintenance record.

Good luck with your mini! Those seem to be pretty hit or miss. Although Mini has been slowly climbing the ladder for reliability? How do you like it as a daily?
mini is a very fun car to drive, and has been very reliable, no serious problems with it. although I’m very excited for the truck. Mini is too damned small, a small trip through niagrara -every time we go we run out of space buying wine!
And the truck would be far better for work, I’m always folding the seats and cramming equipment in, annoying. I even once pulled a Jeep out of the snow in my little mini :p that was hilarious, Shame it’s not on video

How useful will the CT be for bringing wine home. Locked vault with climate control. Keep it the right temp and it will be ready to drink as soon as you get home.

Not mention the t-trac system to allow custom secure points for wine carrying racks.

I think I see a product idea there.

replacing a 2wd cvt 2010 mitsubishi outlander which does 7L\100km @100km\h (highway) & 11L\100km at 60km\h (city) or 9L\100km(comb) 65 Ltr tank as i use $100AUD per week for fuel and does average 500-600 km\ week and based on wanting to go off roading and looking at a 4wd ute i thought why not this cyber truck as can charge at home and have a full tank each day and not waste time at the smelly servo and is cheaper at $0.30/kwh assuming gets 250wh/km = 4 km \kwh and a 800km / 500mi(tank) = approx 200 kwh battery = $60/week instead of $100/week and can travel an extra 250-300 km more per week which is my getaway range

I have a 2002 F250 7.3 with 260,000. I need it to last until 300,000 or so and then bye-bye. I also have 5 motorcycles two GX470s and a Honda Element (a boat and 4 trailers). I want to get down to just the CyberTruck (and two trailers) and I'm currently liquidating but it's hard. I'm gonna keep a GX470 and F250 until cybertruck comes out.

I voted 'No' but only because my answer is really 'Maybe' since I have no idea how long it will be before I get one which will effect whether I trade in my Tacoma or hand it down to one of my kids.

The CT will be used as a family SUV, not a truck. And it will be replacing our current family SUV.

So, yes?

I'm replacing a 2013 Ford f-150, I'm a plumber in Minnesota where you have to have a truck to get around all year. Not to mention a way to haul all the tools and pipe. I've had trucks for most of the last 20 years, I feel like I've been waiting for a cybertruck since 2000. Super psyched!
