Maybe they forgot to renew their Autocad licenses and had to use Minecraft instead?

You aren't kidding... I just asked my wife about what she thinks about the design... the exact words "I love it! It's like an extreme version of that Benz square jeep I like". And by "square jeep", of course she meant the G class.

Then she said... "let's get this one instead of the X! So much cooler!"

US prices plus add 7K US for autonomous. Place a pre order now and then for the next 2 years you can brag to everyone you are getting one. Cancel before it arrives or flip the reservation if the demand is high.

No price on the ATV.

Could make a good plow truck. Have 2 people one on the ATV doing sidewalks and other small area's and the truck doing parking lots.

I gave it some serious thoughts and looked through the details on Tesla.com... ended up placing an order for the 500miles tri-motor version. It checks all the boxes really.

Reasoning: with the kiddos, we are always hauling stuff (bikes, snowboards, camping equipments... so on). I've already made my decision to go all-electric after picking up my Model3. This is much more suitable for my lifestyle for years to come than the X. I don't think I'd be towing anything. And 500miles range means I can basically roadtrip with it. 800km is roughly the max I'd do with kids in a day worth of driving. Charge fully overnight and go 800km again.

And at 69900USD, which is sub-100k CAD... this truck actually makes a LOT more of sense than a Model X 100D we were looking to get.

let's be real, Tesla besides the upcoming Roadster are not sexy, some even a downright eyesore

i'd like to think the most aesthetically pleasing automotive art like e-type/rx-7 are not what future EV tries to emulate at all...i like that there were no expectations allowing the design completely to come up from scratch...having a traditional bed like the Rivian probably has shit aero effects

so zero incentives in Canada/BC for the AWD?

ffff late 2021? so spring 2022 at best for us...that's almost Roadster/Semi vapourware waitlisting

I'm not really worried about the incentives. Our gov't tailor-made those conditions to please the big 3. Going as far as adjusting the requirements so models from the big 3 can qualify.

Tesla had to make clever adjustments (introducing a ultra limited 150km range Model 3) in order to make its car compliant to the incentives.

By then, all big 3 will have some sort of EVs on their lineups and our gov't will sure "adjust" the requirements so that "more" people can move to EV.

I literally laughed out loud.

Did they design it on a computer from the 80's?

I thought Tesla was supposed to be the company that made awesome all-electric cars that look good, but normal.

There should be zero incentives on EVs. Why are people who can afford luxury vehicles being subsidized over say mass transit, which has a much much larger benefit to health and the environment, not to mention providing the largest benefit to lower income citizens?

You mean you donít appreciate Chris Gailus and Sophie Lui yelling at you on the evening news to trade in your gas guzzler while they get discounts on their model 3ís for plugging them on their social media?

This, I was shocked to find out some social media people in the USA have gotten free cars from Tesla for convincing people to use their order code when buying one. Something like 50 orders for Teslas under your code = free car? Wow...

I honestly don’t think anyone cared that much about the Delorean, it was a bespoke car and it still looked like a car.... there were quite a few gull wing door vehicles around before that. It wasn’t particularly futuristic or anything.

As an actual vehicle it seems pretty badly thought out compared to the Rivian and other electric trucks I've seen coming out. I can only assume they made this piece of junk so hideous to draw more attention to it, I mean it's basically a truck version of the geoff/Hammerhead Eagle i Thrust

If I remember right buses are actually the worst vehicle per-person when it comes to emissions, but the study that found that may have been wrong/out of date/etc. Otherwise yeah I agree with you, why subsidize the vehicles bought by wealthy people when they're also getting to drive around on roads that they aren't paying for the maintenance of? Bunch of mooches.

Box is 6.5 feet, fold the gate and you can fit a full sheet of plywood. It can tow x2 the weight the f150 can and has 5 more inches of ground clearance than a ford Raptor. Has air suspension so you can lower it for loading unloading and has 120/220 power so you can run all your tools. It also seats 6.
