Will you use Cybertruck as a daily driver? What are you trading in?

My original plan was to keep my '16 MS forever since it has FSD (and the computer gets upgraded soon!!!). Since the recent refresh, I realize how dated the technology in the car is going to become. I don't see this car being viable (for what I want it to do) for much longer. I think, by the time I get to pick up my CT, it'll be time to trade the ol' S in.

So as of now my plan is to trade in the S, then get either an S or an X as soon as the CT it paid off. In the mean time, the CT will be the daily driver.

Trading in our '15 Prius V that was our trip car and my daily driver until we bought a Model 3; and our '12 F-150 that tows our Airstream.

CT Tri-motor can replace both.

Yep, it’ll be my daily driver. I’ll either sell my F150 or trade it in. We’ll see when the time comes

DD here also. And pulling my boat to the various lakes around here during boating season. Safety and fun during "non-boating" season. Trading in my 2013 Chevy Silverado z71 4x4 that i bought new. Ive been a Chevy Silverado guy since i was 15yrs old (im now 50). Well the 2019-2020 models turned me off (the front grill and rear tailgate...just yuck). I started looking at dodges before the cybertruck release. Now the cybertruck is my new love.
Haven’t you heard, no need for a boat as well as the CT 🤔

Maybe Cybertruck, Porsche Cayenne S

Definitely daily driver for me. Trading in my Porsche Cayenne S. I am Porsche fan but had some issues with this particular one and really wanted to drive EV despite the fact that I have to tow the RV here and there. Porsche EV will be way to expensive for a while and towing will not be in sight. I am ready to turn the page and jump on the Tesla band wagon. Reliability issues do scare me a bit though. It is an EV with half of the parts of the typical gasoline engine yet Tesla does have some issues with quality.
Update: got rid of my Cayenne and am totally in love with my wife’s Model 3. Will never buy another ice car. Single car household for now.

Selling '19 Mustang in the upcoming months to replace it with the CT. We will drive one car as we are WFH. Keeping the '20 4Runner for the foreseeable future (10+ years) - we are not ready to go EV 100%

Any bets that it'll be easier to drive a Cybertruck down there soon? It doesnt care what the generator runs on, be it hydro, wind, solar... Or gas.

We’ll see. I have a 2018 eff one fiddy lariat sport that’ll be paid off soon. I’m sure the shock value of a CT will be gone by the time I get mine though so maybe I’ll drive that bish every day.

I'm excited to see these trucks start rolling around the streets. I plan to daily drive mine, however many of my students were surprised that this was going to be my primary vehicle.

I'll be trading in my 2018 VW Atlas and going all in, driving it daily. What is your plan?
I currently drive a 2014 Ford Fusion hybrid. It is comfortable but I find it to be a bit of a joke as a hybrid. But, my wife plans on handing it down to her son as he starts to drive due to the safety features and the "parental controls". As for me, I have two trucks that I will sell privately after taking possession of the CT. Both are paid off and I have looked into the trade in process. That process seems to leave money on the table on my side. I do my own mechanical work on my vehicles so I know the trucks will still be good reliable vehicles for people who cannot afford Tesla or other electric options. Oh, and we have a model 3 that my wife lets me drive occasionally. The question about daily driver is answered with an absolute yes!
