I just listen to the podcastIf you take notice of, or worse, allow yourself to be provoked by every silly, nonsensical, stupid, or mean remark, or story out there, you will get exhausted pretty quickly.
International Orders total about 25% of all Cybertruck orders.
(And that was before China started ordering)
That is a very large number that will definitely be catered to.
Australia will definitely get a Cybertruck.
I'd suggest 2 Cybertruck versions, just as the USA will.
A smaller (I estimate ~208 inch long) and the 231.7 inch one.
But you will have to wait until 2023 if you're from Australia, for delivery.
The smaller one will definitely be revealed by then, if not much much earlier.
Well before people are invited to complete and solidify their reservation into a hard order.
The disclaimer on the order page for countries other than U.S., clearly recognises that specifications are not settled and Tesla have given themselves the scope to change the spec's.
Yes I heard Elon's remarks.I just listen to the podcast
starts at 13mins.
The quote in question is
“And I should say, we sort of made the decision to not make this a world truck. So it does not comply with a lot of specifications, like it doesn't comply with EU's specs and stuff. But that's okay, we can always build a slightly smaller truck that does comply with the EU's specs in the future. Maybe there is some slight chance of getting a pass. Maybe we can get, I don't know, some exceptions to EU rules depending on how it's classified."
I find it highly unlikely saying it’s not a “world truck” means that Tesla has no intentions to bring it to markets outside the USA.
One of the “journos” has been ferocious in defending his position, doubling down on Cybertruck will never make it to Australia.
