Who's Buying a Tesla Cybertruck?!

Major LOL's with Tesla's version of a "truck". Fess up, who paid $100 to reserve one???

Looks like an El Camino and DeLorean had a baby...and the baby got all the ugly parts from both parents.

Don't let the admins find out about someone calling that "thing" a truck lol. Tesla is a joke. Coal/Nuclear power plants to power the charging stations of a "green vehicle" see below. A diesel van towing a diesel generator charging an e vehicle.

On the link you posted there is a picture of it loading an ATV in the back, the a$$ is literally touching the ground. What happens when I load a pallet of bricks and a bumper pull with a skidsteer on it at the same time? Will it disintegrate into the ground?

Looked up some of the Model X towing figures (since none exist for an electric truck). They are seeing 60% range reduction with a meager 1300lb trailer going 53mph. Freaking ridiculous. Now try multiplying that trailer weight by a factor of 10x and you'll get a 100 mile range if you're lucky. Just not practical at all unless you have a bed full of batteries option (think 100gal diesel transfer tank, expect batteries) .

Nah bro, that's the onboard air ride system. You can push a button to get that sick rear end squat look like fanbois are trying their hardest to do. Just missing the 24" rims with rubber band tires.

Hahahaha...diesel to the rescue once again. Maybe the Cybertruck should just come with an onboard generator option to charge your batteries while you drive.

Another coal powered vehicle. I pull a 40ft with upto 15k sometimes. I guess my range would be about 30 miles....... So ..... no. I'll keep my 2002 7.3.
