If they were piling up because of an issue, then why are they still actively shipping them?
Read some of the posts and threads on here, there are people that received their VINs 4-6 weeks ago and their trucks are still sitting in Texas. Some issues are bigger than others

Mine left the lot last week.
It was sitting on lot for a week according to production date.

Too much FUD at this point. People make up things that they have no real information about.

Sure, there are definitely things that may make them hold the car at the lot, it's still in production ramp. But this conspiracy theory isn't holding water.

I think many here are missing some points. The Tesla brain trust (Elon, Franz and Hans) are not truck guys. The "tough truck" argument doesn't wash with work truck people who don't give a damn about scratches or door dings. They use their trucks for work and the SS skin of the cybertruck is susceptible to scratching and other finish issues. Putting a wrap on a work truck is well, stupid.
So all those contractor trucks and fleet trucks with wraps on them is stupid?

And then you make a misogynistic comment I'm going to ignore.

The guys (mostly) who have show pony trucks often accessorize to create the image they want to project. The Cybertruck's all look the same and re-skinning it with wrap is about all you can do. Comparing the CYbertruck to a RAM Tough, Big Horn gas guzzler is like bringing a nerdy, flat chested girl to a wet tee-shirt contest ... e.g. no sale.
Holy ego inflated cringe post 🤮. Wtf are you compensating for? Relax, Uncle Rico.

If the OEM’s only sold to work truck people they’d be out of business already. This is a tired and old argument. There are far more people buying trucks with no intention on ever using them for work than there are “work truck” guys buying them. Businesses aren’t buying new fleets of trucks every other year and I’ve seen more lifted and jacked up trucks with neon lights in the wheel wells and low profile tires for a lifetime. The only person the use of any truck matters to is the person laying out the cash. Who cares why they’re buying it? The guys complaining about why other people are buying trucks usually are also trying to project an image.

I was speaking to the viability of the product and perhaps my own use case. I like and own Tesla's and want the company to do well. At the price points, estimated range and technology outline in 2019, this strange vehicle held some promise as a versatile daily driver for me. I am fortunate to have not just the capital, but home energy production and charging capability that allows me to, for the most part, cover the cost of the electric energy that these vehicles require.

As for the truck guy thing, a truck is an essential tool for the work many working people do. As for the lifted ,jacked up, neon lights people, they do not share the conservative energy ethos of many of the people that buy BEV's. As a small l libertarian I believe it is a persons right to do stupid things but there is a heavy societal cost to some of these stupid and wasteful things. Taking responsibility for and understanding the ramifications of our actions, is something we should all be able to agree on ...

If that’s your use case and personal belief then lead with that. Our society has an oversupply of people who like nothing better than to condemn others for not believing they way they believe. We ALL make decisions on a daily basis that affect society in some way or another, positively and negatively. Your beliefs as a libertarian does not mean every action you take has a positive impact on society. It’s just what you believe.

The truck is a tool for working people but it’s also a tool for those not using it as a part of their job. Just because they may not have a toolbox or generator in the back or it’s not beat up, because like you said, truck guys don’t care about dents and scratches, doesn’t mean it’s not “working” for that family. I work in healthcare but I’ve peen pulling fishing boats for going on 30 years. Does that make me not a truck guy?

My point is that Ford F150 is gonna be sitting on the lot regardless of whether a soccer mom or a contractor buys it. It’s impact on our environment and society will be the same regardless of who the owner is.

I too have the capital, home energy production and charging capability and love seeing my CT in the garage every morning. I just don’t feel the need to question why anyone else may choose to buy this or any other vehicle for that matter. My beliefs are irrelevant.

@Celiboy Your emotional post is a good example of that condemnation of people who don't think like you do... but you can't see that, can you?

I agree with you. My condemnation is not for others who don’t think like me, it’s when someones personal beliefs are projected onto others. You notice I also finished my statement with my beliefs are irrelevant. Because they are. Your beliefs are irrelevant. It doesn’t matter what your personal beliefs as a libertarian about others personal responsibility or how that effect society and to post it like it does is arrogant. In the same vein, my beliefs about your beliefs is also irrelevant. See how that works. We are equally entitled to believe how we believe and our beliefs are equally irrelevant to anyone else’s life.

Truck driver told me they were 8k. Tooo heavy for full load. Some r going by rail. But. Look a morning video. Hundreds parked. I was in Jacksonville SC last week. Boss said they have no control over them. Austin handles everything. He only hands over cards.

But unlike so many normal people, businesses have great information about how far each vehicle goes each day.

And most of the commercial BEV vehicles sold today have ranges under 150 miles. And an amazing many don't have a DCFC option, just L2.
