Aaand it’d be nice to have the “not all variants” part explained in meticulous detail.In the same video they were clear about the stainless steel taking on the rigidity requirements of the truck, and that the inner structure was made of aluminum and would have had to have been made of high strength steel if it was carrying the load and providing stiffness. I do not know how long it has been since 3mm was mentioned as the skin thickness but it has been a long time. In the end, we saw it crash tested and how it maintained minimal damage where (they say) a regular car would have been totaled. I have harped on the 3mm skin as much as anyone, but in the end it is really about toughness against incidental damage (for me), and regardless of the thickness if it does the job than I am happy. It 'would' be nice to find out how thick the various panels are (4 along the side, the hood, and the tailgate).
I’m pretty sure I heard Elon say it, but didn’t find a direct quote in a very cursory search.Where did this number come from?
This might well be, but hardness should not be associated with penetration stopping capability nor structural strength.I cant repeat the jargon, but Sandy said (as we know) Tesla processed the SS to make it super hard.
Perhaps since 2019 they made the SS even stronger and 1.8mm(if) was enough and perhaps not as compromised. ?
All Cybertrucks are made with the same materials.
More like at 3mm the range would have been 180 miles. What a bunch of crap. You overpromised and underdelivered, Elon. Exactly what you said legacy manufacturers do, and said you wouldn't. I believed you.Now we know a fact or two.
3mm was NOT required....
1.8mm MAD MAX SKIN....Good to go!
