Don't know. Don't care too much. I'm 95% sure that I'm going with the tri-motor option that is rated at 500+ miles.
Do the other 2 motors charge while driving so you never have to stop?

I used to have a radio that would work with a hand crank. Not sure why this technology can't be used by using the rotation from the wheels to charge the motor(s).

Technology better hurry up because legislation isn't waiting for them to make this feasible.

So you can have your car put together by home Depot parts anytime elon needs to make a stock bonus deadline?





Or do we love tesla because theres always a devil in the details of claimed performance?

Funny thing is, the polymer part is probably cheaper than the tape and wood.

I'd rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies.

I can't afford the Taycan. But the Cybertruck will be a nice replacement for the Silverado.

My bigger point is bagging on GM.
The main reason I didn't buy a Tesla in the past was how disappointed I was and reading the Tesla forums and owners talking about the low quality.These were mostly BMW and Mercedes owners who had switched to what they thought would be a comparable car based on price and marketing.
As time has gone on I see developing asterisks like Tesla's performance numbers are only good for a run and then you're doing Camry speeds.

As we go into electric vehicle manufacturing, standardizing these performance claims needs to be done.

Teslas cybertruck doesn't exist and it's yet to be seen what asterisks will come along with it.

Someone mentioned Rivian before and I love their platform. The fact that Ford is partnering with them is a good sign. But they haven't put any wheels on the asphalt yet so I can't commit to one of those yet. At least we know with Tesla that they're fine cars. Definitely have some problems though. If I were giving up my other two main cars for one then I'd probably feel shitty. But getting rid of a 2004 Silvarado for a Cybertruck will still be a step up.

the torque and HP on that thing is ridiculous even for a huge truck.

$112,595 holy shit!

11,500 pound-feet of torque. That should be sufficient to carry your social status around!
a top fuel dragster barely has 7,400 this thing in theory should be able to reach 300 miles per hour if modified somehow.

They make it easy.
From cheap manufacturing, to unreliability and shitty management. I'm sure the bailouts have still left a lot of consumers bitter. Also shutting down shop in Oshawa left thousands unemployed.

200 mile range on the B2 is pretty shitty if I drove to like AZ or nevada I would be stranded in the middle of the desert. the power and torque on these trucks is ridiculous some 70 year old woman is going to be driving these things.
