I have to say when looking for a house a few years ago. The standard garage is to small. It would be one of the first thing i would look at when going in a house. Most garages are a joke. They need to be sized to park two Suburbans in not two smart cars.
My 2 car garage house in Texas can fit 2 suburbans.

I’m with you! My garage isn’t exactly huge, but it is 20’x20’ two car and I have an additional 10’x19’11” third car garage, but that’s used as a gym and workshop. I think the 20’x20’ should work. Although my wife wants to upgrade from 2012 4 Runner to a Sequoia.

I’m fine with the garage or the driveway. I can place the charger on the exterior of the garage.

After watching the video clip from the upcoming Jay Leno's Garage episode, I believe the Cybertruck looks great as is. This is actually great news. I've been building a new garage in my yard to accommodate the current Cybertruck dimensions, anyway.

I like your style, complete with slanted roof. Should be a perfect fit!

So glad you're keeping the original dimensions Elon. I couldn't help but feel I was getting gypped at the idea of less truck. It's PERFECT as is. And I have a confession to make: I didn't have this much butterflies-in-the-stomach anticipation when my next-ex was pregnant with my two kids! I just can't wait... 🤩

Love it. You know the saying “everything is bigger in Texas!”
That's why Elon needs to built his next Terafactory in Texas! We love big trucks here and by replacing our gas guzzling ones with EVs, we can truly make a dent in emissions!

It boggles my mind that people will refuse to buy because it dosnt fit in the garage. I'm I missing something?
Non truck owners trying to buy a truck. My cybertruck will either be sitting in my driveway or on the construction site all day.

Yes, the fact that the CT is electric makes it more complicated than ICE trucks which are “meant to be kept outside.”

Tesla says their chargers can be used outdoors but finding a location and getting 220v there can be complicated.

There’s also the question of temperature regulation for the batteries, which like to stay in a pretty narrow temp range. If you park your CT out in the cold it will use lots of energy keeping the battery warm, versus parking in an insulated or (even better) climate controlled garage.

With all that in mind I’m surprised the CT wasn’t designed from the start to fit in a “standard” garage.
All 16000+ Superchargers are mainly outdoors, some in very cold climates...In fact I know of very few charging stations regardless of brands, that are indoors; they do exist but very few.

Some housing communities forbid vehicles parked in the driveway or on the street overnight. Not mine. I do know that some potential buyers have that issue.

I live in a condo in California. Have a 2-car garage but no driveway, so I can't easily charge unless I block all my neighbors from their garages. Cybertruck is 232" long, my garage is 230" long. I'll have to park diagonally or leave my garage door open overnight to charge.

Never owned a truck before, didn't want to pay for all the gas since I drive 20k miles a year. Will probably get the tri-motor.

Cybertruck great at full original size. Still will get Trimotor, hopefully satin black. Can’t wait.

Not a Cybertruck (yet)

I don't have a truck or a tesla. I
ordered the Cybertruck and super excited about it. I measured my garage yesterday and was happy to find out it's 24x24' (my wife's car is a CR-V).
I have a question about adding a Tesla charger to the home: can any existing Tesla owners shed some light about the process, costs, space requirements for this in-home car charger?
