What is your biggest Cybertruck question you'd like answered by Tesla before committing to purchase?

Please never ever expect to go the full range of your battery. There needs to be some buffer above and below. Never ever assume you will ever go 500 miles when the rating is for 500.
That's part of my problem right now. The range isn't 500. It's 500+...and we don't know what that means. I don't assume I'll ever drive from 100% capacity to 0 and coast to a charger.

And just to clarify the last couple of posts, the rated range is battery at 100% under ideal conditions.
OK...so the EPA driving range will not say 500 miles...unless the + means 500+56...then at 90% under ideal conditions it could say 500 miles. But we still don't know what the + means. Which is why I'm asking for it. The EPA stated range needs to be close to 500 for me to keep my reservation, because I know that under way less then ideal conditions I'm going to NEED it to get me 200 miles and the dual motor 300+ mile variant probably won't cut it.

And I couldn't tell if you meant TCO or whatever.
I meant purchase cost and I'm mostly concerned with the wheel package "options". It debuted with 35s. That's what I have on my truck now and what I'd like on the CT, but the current spec list doesn't say if those are an option or standard equipment (already baked into the 500+ range). If they are an option, then I'm sure 500 miles of range is out the window when rolling on 35s. In which case, I'd probably also cancel my reservation.

I recently started part full with 205 miles of estimated range, drove 136 miles to the next chargers, and had only 3 miles remaining, at reduced speeds! It was cold and raining so the car quickly told me my watts usage was too high to make that distance at that speed. I slowed to what it said and made it.
So given my NEED statement of 200 miles, I also know I'd be starting that 200 miles at about 85% (of an assumed 500 mile max range)...so 425. Given that you got about 67% of your starting range. I could assume 67% of 425 would get me 284.

Unless the + in the Dual motor 300+ means 300+99, then that version definitely will not cut it, or would cut it way to close. 399*.85=340. 340*.67=227...if + equals 99, which I'm sure it doesn't.

What is the number one question you have about Cybertruck that could influence your purchase decision depending on the answer you get from Tesla (or Musk)?
Are you ready to build my CT3?

Really at this point I’m all in. I’ll live with whatever deficiencies I find as there are no other vehicles that even approach the base functionality of the CT. I’ll certainly be looking into the accessories market too though.

Still waiting on word of a snow plow prep package (frame support up front). I am anxiously awaiting word of when production will start. I mean really it is middle of April and they are working like honey bees around the clock on the facility. I would think by end October- mid November they will roll the first wave of CT off the line for employees and test drivers. Then full bore. I am over anxious.

I am all in with our first reservation of a 3/motor. For the rest that I ordered for the Robo Taxi network I would want at a minimum full autonomous FSD with a turn key maintenance support system.
