I am reasonably certain that the working class to middle class stiff is not buying the $112,545 Hummer EV.
Tri-motor is 500mi ( 250mi when towing). Rumors are that 500 mi will be increased to 560 when Cybertruck ships in late 2021. A stop at Level-3 250-350KW Supercharger will bump range up pretty good. A lot for these people are retired on fixed incomes. They are taking their time now (no rush) but need to avoid ICE fuel charges.How is 150 miles pulling a 14k pound fifth wheel enough range? Because that is what you will get.
it has to happen because if a base model rivian can have tank turn and the hummer can have crab then elon will want to make sure that can be added to CYBERBRUTE(australian term)because the hummer is just a token vehicle by most people's accountsThere are sound rumors from Tesla workers about a possible Quad-Motor Super Performance Cybertruck model capable of insane maneuvers. Anyone have any thoughts?
take note that most the super series goes to commercial users for work on road use >50% so a small no off road cred unlike cyberBut 2 million working class to middle class stiffs are buying $40K and up
F-150/250, GMC Chevy 1500, RAM 1500
and 750K stiffs bought these
Probably most F-250/350/450, GMC Chevy 2500/3500, RAM 2500/3500 are bought primarily for towing.
Over half a million people every year pay $50K to $90K.

Lol.. Clearly you have never been to Texas.. I would say most 3/4 to 1 ton trucks here RARELY even have groceries in the bed.. much less a trailer. If they are dropping the money for an F-450 they do probably use it as a truck.. but those are pretty rare besides fleet. Even fleet trucks here seem to be mostly just for driving around on the companies $.Probably most F-250/350/450, GMC Chevy 2500/3500, RAM 2500/3500 are bought primarily for towing.
Well then CyberBrute can't be doing anything so pedestrian as tank turn or crab walk.it has to happen because if a base model rivian can have tank turn and the hummer can have crab then elon will want to make sure that can be added to CYBERBRUTE( australian term)because the hummer is just a token vehicle by most people's accounts
My towing goals fit within the envelope of bumper-pull.Did you notice no one said they where buying a CT to tow a 5th Wheel? Apparently they just like the idea even if they wouldn’t bother with the extreme hassle and patience it would take.
When I lived in Arizona there are some copper mines and it was common for the workers to live in trailers and drive brand new diesel 4 wheel drive trucks. The dealerships would sell to the workers even if they had bad credit knowing how much the workers got paid. It was common for a monhly payment to be in excess of $1500 a monthMany expensive trucks are bought by people that aren’t particularly wealthy. They’re spending most everything the make to afford the truck. This is far more true with truck owners in the south than other vehicle owners. For them a fancy new truck is making it in life. A minority are actually wealthy.

Yes, I have couple of reservations for Cybertruck. Yes, I want to be able to use Cybertruck with 5th wheel trailer. Most of the places I want to take the trailer to are within 200 miles but there are other locations further away I want to goto too.Yes and how far? I noticed you didn’t say you were buying one for towing a 5th wheel. I guess no one respond gotta is actually buying a CT for this reason they all just like the idea.
I've known a few couples that have done that. When I was a kid, I lived in a snowbird town in Washington state.If I can talk the wife into it, I would love to sell the house, buy a 5th wheel, and travel where we want. We are both computer people and ...
Maybe a 5,000 pound travel trailer, yes. But just doing the math on a fifth wheel travel trailer weighing 14,000 pounds, and I get an energy requirement of around 2,000Wh/mi. Are you suggesting the CT will come with a 560kWh battery?Cybertruck trimotor towing range is now rumored to be about 280 miles
What math are you doing? Please show detail calculations?Maybe a 5,000 pound travel trailer, yes. But just doing the math on a fifth wheel travel trailer weighing 14,000 pounds, and I get an energy requirement of around 2,000Wh/mi. Are you suggesting the CT will come with a 560kWh battery?
