This is nothing less than wishful thinking... but who here would pony up a 10% down payment today in order to solidify themselves on an actual pre-order list that is much less likely to drastically change as time goes on?
a $100 refundable deposit is a joke. Granted it allows Tesla to boast they have the better part of a million pre-orders, but it is obviously a grossly inflated number, and once the CT's are actually available for purchase it will change drastically.
If Tesla emailed me today offering to put me on some sort of "serious buyer" list, and gave me an actual line number on a newly formulated pre-order list, I would be on it immediately. Separate the wheat from the chafe, and allow for the serious buyers to get a (much better) idea of what their true delivery ETA might be.
I suppose that could be a possibility, but realistically don't you think that would just absolutely ruin the Tesla fanbases' perception of the company?
I seriously hope that prices remain the same but watching various commodities rise - and the plans therein - I have a darkened outlook.I suppose that could be a possibility, but realistically don't you think that would just absolutely ruin the Tesla fanbases' perception of the company?
Given that Elon has said multiple times that scaling the CT for production is going to be more difficult than anticipated, I certainly won't rule the possibility out that the price goes up... fingers crossed it doesn't.
It took Tesla three years to get to the base model (and price) of the Model 3, which has been discontinued then replaced since.Did the price of the M3 or MY change from reveal to delivery?
Lol yeah if the down payment secured you a $7k tax credit that would certainly change the game. I truly hope that is still available by the time the CT's roll off the line in full production numbersI would gladly put more down to get a realistic queue number. In addition, based on the latest info, the early Cybertrucks may be able to get an additional $7k EV tax credit. Yeah I know that may be extended into the future, but right now it would be nice to be part of the pre-approved 600k Tesla owners.
I would gladly put up to half down, but not until I see the final specs and design.
This! You read my mind. I'm setting aside money now for a good down payment. Planning on 40%-ish for the tri-motor. Using your criteria, I'd give them what I have now, especially if that moved me up on the list.I would now but most likely would not have when i placed it week of reveal. I think the low barrier for reservation worked on many. I did it on a whim then became a huge fan as i was invested so to say.
I'm expecting the price in Ontario Canada for the trimotor to be $106,000 with FSD, taxes and no incentives. Pricy, but still my be worth it.
