Will the updated Cybertruck design change your reservation decision?

  • I will never buy the Cybertruck. The specs aren't good enough.

My wife loves the idea of taking the CT for roadtrips. lone range, easy camping, plug an electric cooler into the outlet, and she loves to grab my arm while i drive so a middle front seat makes that way more comfortable for us.

I think maybe they drive a Prius and LIKE it.
We owned a Prius for 12 years and liked it.

There's a lot to love about that car.

Actually driving it isn't one of those things -- it's an owner's car, not a driver's car. It was one of those good-life-decision cars which allowed us to survive our late 20s (financially speaking), while still getting $#!t done. It started every morning, didn't cost much to run, and carried a lot more kids and cargo than anyone who hasn't owned one would believe.

It's a lousy sports car (the go-pedal makes it sound like you stomped on a kitten) -- but it is one of the best household-support-vehicles I've ever had the privilege of owning. There are very few vehicles which can compete with it, even now.

I'm into EVs, because I like vehicles which can make the Prius obsolete even better than I like the Prius. That vehicle is the Model Y (for my wife) and the Cybertruck (for me). Alas, my wife has rebuffed my attempts to buy her a Model Y, because her existing car is "just fine" (she's right), and "you're the one who cares about cars" (she's also right about that). Cybertruck it is, then (and she's OK with this).

And that was twenty years ago. Today you have a range of choices from pretty petty to lotsa room to bery basic. The Prime can keep up with my Mazda 3 if empty, which is pretty cool.

Nowhere near the efficiency of an EV, but if range and initial price is a worry, well, there's a car for that. There's no reason for straight-up ICE vehicles to exist in the light passenger vehicle segment anymore.

Wife HATES the look of CT. But, she knows I've been saving up for the last few years for a Tesla and knows how bad I want it. Told her I'd pay for it and she warmed up to the idea much more. I think once CT's are on roads and are more common (and she sees the use/functionality of it) she'll be sold, as I believe most people will. I can't wait!

Although I have a small model and a couple posters of the cybertruck, my wife just saw a picture of one with the stainless steel. Her first reaction was a lot like mine... YIKES!!!. She said that if we can afford it when my number comes up, then I can get it... YAY!?!

My wife conducted a poll with her friends because she liked it but was embarrassed to say she did. I instantly liked and have no problem putting myself out there. Her approach is either shyness or political genius.
