I know I already replied to this, but I was thinking about it a little more with regard to the current Tesla battery warranties. I feel I'm in for a letdown and I've begun the mental preparation for what I feel is coming.You are aware that with 500 mile EPA range you will get actual range of between approximately 400 and 550 miles and that with 499 mile EPA rating you will get between approximartely 400 and 550? You are also aware that with time the battery will degrade and the rated range will go below 500? I think you need to think about this a bit more.
But it is almost cerain that the EPA range will not come in below 500.

I ordered the twi-motor with FSD, but I have a 2019 Jeep Rubicon will take me places the CT won't be able to, can't take the top and doors off (done all year except summer in southern Arizona) and it is paid off. I do have a 2-3 year plan to simply convert the Jeep to BEV. Since it the most modified vehicle in the US (if not the world) with the highest resale value of any vehicle in the US, conversion kits at SEMA should be hitting in 2022 or 2023. It is easy to work on and garage mechanics would jump on a conversion kit. Probably two days work to pull the engine and fuel tank, install the motor, batteries, cables, etc and install a new PCM. I only want to that with a kit that ensures I keep my 6-speed manual transmission and transfer case though. The other benefit of converting verses buying new is I can keep the modifications I already made.Only thing holding me back is the fact that I have a perfectly good running paid for vehicle..
I'm curious, are you assuming the lack of updates on the Cybertruck is an indicator that the specs have somehow become inferior to the announced version?I really don't know. The Cybertruck into was taken, and not returned for us to evaluate to see how, or even if it still meets our needs. This may well be by design. I was at 110% a year ago - today, it's hard to say. There are many questions to be answered and nobody is answering much; and with an ongoing chip crunch, I don't know how quickly this will be resolved.
I need to see the revised stats and specs, period. After covering those extensively, I'll give you an accurate updated number. I hope to be back heavily into it. I'm concerned that the lack of talk is because we were given too much voice early on, and you can put too many gadgets into something and make it a nightmare to build, to service, and to own. I hope to just get the stats and specs at some point. peace
Happy spouse, happy life. If you are happy with your CT, by law, she will be happy too.There's one thing that could create an issue. If VW finally gets off their butts and start producing the ID Buzz van. My wife loves the look and concept. So there could be some serious discussions. I think I would win and bring home a Cybertruck.
Well, you can always have both and see which fits your use better. In either case, you get your Cybertruck, maybe trade it in for a cute ID.Buzz, maybe not.If VW finally gets off their butts and start producing the ID Buzz van.
I enjoyed my avalanche but the specs on the EV version would need to be overwhelming to convince me to buy again. Maybe my wallet is still in shock for all the times I filled it up.Lots of fond memories.Having a low reservation number on Avalanche EV with original mid-gate, reasonable price and range.
