This is true. Less than 10% of Model 3 orders had been cancelled in their first full year of deliveries. But ultimately they ended up with a 20% cancellation rate.


You really think most people care about mirrors and stalks? I don't.

Yes I do think that.

I suspect a fair amount of Cybertruck reservation holders also placed reservations on other EVs. The number of reservations that get canceled will depend partially on whether Rivian, Lucid, Ford, etc can deliver a suitable EV for one's needs prior to Tesla.

I plan to buy 2 new EVs in the next 2 years. One of them will be a truck. The Rivian bed is too short for me. The Hummer is too expensive. If Ford can produce a reasonably priced truck with 300 mile range before I get my Cybertruck delivered, I'll cancel my reservation. If not, I'll happily take the Cybertruck.

I bet many reservation holders are in similar positions.
i have been a Ford guy all my life. Great trucks. I seriously do not think the CT will arrive until 2023, so my bet is on Ford to beat them to the market.

Are you talking ANY CTs? Or just YOUR CT?

I fully expect that there will be CTs shipping in 2022. Tesla has every motivation to get them out and sold. Depending on how far down the list you are though, you may not get your till 2023 or maybe even later. It will really all depend on how fast they can get the kinks out of the machine that builds the machine.

I hope they ship in 2022, but for a lot of reasons I don’t actually think they will ship until 2023. I’m pretty up on the list, if that even matters.
