In this Century, I've own three Chevy Avalanches, very practical and and good trucks, I also owned an F150, before going to a Model S.

The model S, is by far the best car I've ever owned, super efficient, practical, excellent ride and great savings in gas and maintenance.

I will be close to 80 yo, when I get my Cybertruck and since I am older (not necessarily wiser), I really do not need the dual or tri-motor, as for me the rear wheel drive will do just fine.

In Fort Worth we do not get much Ice and Snow, am also not into off road. I would like to see an option for a better longer mile battery, though.

However, on my model S the 200+ mile range has worked, only on occasion I wish for a longer range as the range anxiety is very real as the distance gets lower.

I looked at the RIVIAN R1T, but I was not convinced. I believe on Electric Vehicles TESLA is way above any competitor.

So far, I like everything I know about the CYBERTRUCK, and the more I learn the more I like. Go TESLA!!

I plan on this being my last vehicle Carlos. I'll only be 50 this year, but I plan on placing the truck in my garage and continuing to drive my Model 3 to and from work until I retire in 2028ish. I ordered the Tri Motor. I hear they flipped to the Tri first and single motor later the next year, so if you want, when I get mine, I'll let you know. You can meet me at DFW and see/ride in it.

Same as many here. I have own many ICE cars in my life. I bought my Model S a year ago and love it. I let my wife drive it because she works further than me. I bought the Nissan Titan truck back in 2004 when it first came out but then sold it because it not efficient at all. I love EV now. I pre-ordered my tri-motor Cybertruck. I am just glad to be in this era to experience the EV.

Super Charger charges a lot faster than a destination. Think 30-45 minutes as opposed to 3-4 hours.

I think i am getting anxiety about waiting for the cybertruck. It shows up in my dreams. I get upset when i walk out to drive to work and its not here yet.

I would love for the longer range and will get the Solar charging option also. I would build a custom camper siting on top of the bed with additional solar panels and go for a adventure, off-road and off grid.

Sounds good; I may go one up in the scale and go with the Dual motor, if indeed I get it sooner.
Have a great day

I switched by initial Single Motor to a Dual Motor recently. This will likely be close to my last new vehicle purchase and I like the AWD, longer range, etc. I’m sure it will have more content as well to justify the extra $10k price. My guess is a nicer entertainment system, different wheel and tire combination, FSD option, etc.

I upgraded recently to the dual as well. I can justify the 10k but not the larger increase in the tri
