Informative video with Frank von Holzhsusen, chief designer from Tesla about Teslas coming half ton. Enjoy.

Oh, boy. This should start an interesting conversation. Probably to be closed in short order. [emoticon]

Or........maybe just those that are interested in the truck will discuss it while those who have no interest whatsoever in it will just stay away?? [emoticon]

One thing I dont like is those square fenders.
Wheels are round so why not make fender openings round also.

Plus those overfenders stick out too much,blocking airflow.

Designer has lots to learn yet.

The truck is ugly, I don’t care it it has a 600mile range and 400 towing, I wouldn’t want it.
If I was forced to, it would be either a Rivian or Lightning!
No thanks!

Hi,

I don't like how it looks either.

I think the idea was to save money by "stamping" out the body in large chunks.

On the tesla semi pepsi presentation tonight they mentioned that the Cybertruck will be compatible with the semi mega charger. That could be a huge advantage for them. And apparently mega chargers will start to get added to superchargers next year. Kinda cool.

I agree, it is gadawful ugly and over. You will see few if any on the road. But a good conversation subject for the bored.

The only thing I got, is IMO it is not a truck.

Trucks are the way they are for a reason. The standard 8' bed can carry a lot of building supplies. It's popularity many years ago was the reason truck campers were born. Then the hard working tradesman could use his truck for recreation. The fact that the same camper could fit on any brand truck fueled their popularity.
In spite of all the handwringing that goes on here sometimes over a trucks looks, there really isn't a hill of beans difference between them. They are trucks, not sportcars. Their roots remain grounded in work. And that is why they are superior TVs as well.

Long live REAL trucks

This vehicle was not designed to be a working truck. In the event of crash I wonder what the body repair cost's will compare traditional working truck
