Great list! Great talking points! Hope Elon is listening. Regarding the roof rack, which I've commented on before, as having as a factory option, by providing female, threaded cups built-in to facilitate vertical, male threaded supports that would enable a factory designed system that is easily removable. Also, on the horizontal members, provide clips and power points that would enable the owner to install solar panels. Regarding the tow hitch, I'd move this requirement way up on your list as a factory, built-in option with wiring for cameras on the rear of the trailer.
For all y'all who are interested in the passthrough, here's one vehicle (the Chevy Avalanche) which implemented it successfully:I agree that my most important item is the pass through.
Indeed!The midgate seems such a no-brainer once you've eliminated the separate cab-box.
You have listed nice features, and all of them and even more are preferable to have from tesla home. But I have a question for you: Are you willing to pay for all that you've listed? Or you expect to have it for $39 900? Sometimes people are over expected from Cybertruck. Who else offers all these features, Ford? Rivian? GM? ... Therefore share price dropped down after battery day. Noone actually heard about the new technology tesla is having on the road, everyone was expecting to hear 1 mln mile battery and V2G. If tesla puts everything you've listed in the Cybertruck it would cost no less than $180,000.
A) Which of these options would quadruple the list price?If tesla puts everything you've listed in the Cybertruck it would cost no less than $180,000.
Thanks for linking that video. It was interesing also how everything was manually operated, but it seems like this crowd wants everything push button.For all y'all who are interested in the passthrough, here's one vehicle (the Chevy Avalanche) which implemented it successfully:
The Chevy Avalanche has been mentioned many times on this forum, but I haven't seen a lot of detailed descriptions on how the folding midgate works. So, here's one such description.
The Chevy Avalanche is built on the GMT800/GMT900 platform, so it's basically a Silverado/Tahoe/Sierra/Yukon/Escalade with an alternative body.
This vehicle exists, and some people really love them. But this particular GMT800/GMT900 variant is relatively rare. It didn't exactly tear up the sales parts. I can enumerate the reasons why I didn't buy one (I chose a GMT900-based GMC Sierra Hybrid), but analyzing those tradeoffs is a bit beyond the scope of this comment. Many Cybertruck enthusiasts seem to be new to the world of pickup trucks, so I just want to make sure everyone is familiar with the prior art on the folding midgate.
I don't believe that either mattress would fit in the bed unless if there is that full passthrough because the bed is only 6 feet long and every mattress is longer than six feet long. Being 6' 1", I couldn't even lay down in the CT, much less fit a mattress in there.A king size mattress is 76” x 78”. A queen size mattress is 60” x 78”. Neither of these will fit flat into a Sprinter because of the rear wheel wells. Which one will fit into the CT bed? A Sprinter is now the basis for most Class C RV’s.
