Lost sales to other EV brands might not matter much if Tesla can't keep up with demand, and if they really want people to transition to EVs like Elon Musk has said.the problem here is that Rivian is almost ready and GM and Ford will be before Tesla. people in need of a truck and still puzzled about CT's appearance will go for another brand at this point. this is no good news for us Tesla shareholders. As a future CT owner, however, I am ok with any delay that makes CT better.
You are spot on, ordered a Harley-Davidson Livewire in January 2019 the delivery date kept go push out as they worked through getting everything just right, I I didn’t tale delivery till December 2019 and I can now say it was worth the wait, I drive it daily coming up on 18,000 miles now with -0- problems with it, now with the CyberTruck being a completely different vehicle and in order for Tesla to keep the price as low as they’ve already stated it only makes sense that a lot of moving pieces have to be in place for a full production run, so for now I’ll patiently wait for what I hope is the last truck I’ll ever buyWas watching it live, I know its a bummer but I've been prepared for it personally. I don't know about others, while bummed I'm stilled not depressed just because I was expecting a cumulative delay of around this time. If it goes considerably beyond this, that would then surprise me.
We are all in different boats, I'm fine with the delay because I currently drive a truck that has years of life left in it. But I can imagine for people who are buying their first truck or are on their last leg of their current vehicle this is a real bummer.
In the long term, this wait will be forgotten soon after we each take delivery. But that's just my opinion. Who knows
If you really want the Trimotor and if Tesla makes that one first, just change your earliest reservation with the lowest number to a Trimotor. Bad thing is if you reserved with FSD at $7k, it would change that to the current price.I ordered a F150 Electric when it was introduced also thinking this was a possibility. I pick that up in summer 2022 as I am a very early order, if Ford is still in business . Drive it till the DM Cyber truck is ready in 2023. I am currently trim position 23,671 for my 1st day order DM.
My tri motor position is 255,755, so 2025 for that one I imagine, unless Tesla prioritizes that build 1st. Will be interesting.
I have 4 on order and are part of my retirement plan, as they will all be robotaxi's. I am turning 62 in December and plan to retire at 66 and 10 months, which is October2026. Should work out.
I want the DM 1st. It will be mine. The TM I ordered intentionally as a option for when I need to tow or go on long trips but primarily it is for my robo fleet as a option that I feel will be in demand. I have a SM and another DM for the fleet also. All of them are late orders just before the FSD went to 10kIf you really want the Trimotor and if Tesla makes that one first, just change your earliest reservation with the lowest number to a Trimotor. Bad thing is if you reserved with FSD at $7k, it would change that to the current price.
I would take bets on Rivan not reaching full production until 2025, GM 2026, Ford 2026. All three will have plenty of delays. Not to mention them all using pouch packs that have a high danger of thermal problems (per Elon).the problem here is that Rivian is almost ready and GM and Ford will be before Tesla. people in need of a truck and still puzzled about CT's appearance will go for another brand at this point. this is no good news for us Tesla shareholders.

Get a Lighting!I, for my part, am driving a tired f150 with deep rust issues and over 250,00 miles. I don't know what to do now. I'm bummed. Not slit-your-wrists bummed, just bummed. Elooon!
Yup that’s right. Right now I’m still paying off my current truck so just give me more time to save up for the extras I will like to do on the Cyber truck. I have no idea how far down the line I have my reservation.Just gives me more time to save up that down payment and maybe buy some more Tesla stock.
I just hope the Nissan van can hang in there until they build mine. I average 20k miles a year and keep it maintained so there is hope.
