how does a strip of LED (also on the rivian) be adequate to light up the road ahead? Unless it's extremely bright/glare-y

or another silicon valley overestimation that the tech will hopefully be there in 2 years and still be cost. Effective

I like it cause it's different. Will consider buying if it has a decent crash safety rating.

I wonder if many electric buyers will still buy an electric if they scrapped the gas taxes and tax by the KM instead? Electric/hybrid owners pay little to no gas tax which goes to road maintenance. Makes sense that if you're going to use the roads, you should pitch in and pay for it.

To be clear, I'm not talking about the translink taxes, carbon tax, GST, etc... just specifically the money that goes to road maintenance.

It’s coming, but EV makes up so little of the total volume of vehicles that it’s too insignificant to implement at this stage. It’ll probably be a tax on electricity via smart meters.

Really disappointing. I'm a truck owner that was looking forward to this, but the styling is so fucking awful I'd never buy one. They literally didn't even try. It's also pretty obvious they don't understand the truck market in regards to usage and how owners add to their vehicles (bumpers, boxes, etc).

JMac is damn right that there shouldn't be financial incentives on electric cars, and LittleDragon is right that it's wrong that gas-free vehicles aren't doing their part to maintain the infrastructure they use. The fact that charging is free and these vehicles are pulling power out of the grid and using the roads while not paying a cent is a rip-off for everyone else. The 'wealthy' who can afford the luxury are subsidized into free use of the roads. The whole system is a joke.

Tons of people seem to be ordering these... Like I said my twitter is blowing up with memes, and now my facebook is blowing up with friends posting screenshots of their preorders. Like not even crazy car people either. One friend probably hasn't had a car in like 10 or 20 years (lives in NYC)

For whatever reason, this thing seems to be a hit with people.

it breaks the mold of boxy pick-up trucks

how many times do you hear the car community complain all automobiles look the same these days? crash regulations and fuel efficiency dictates the cookie-cutter exteriors

half a million model 3 pre-orders made a statement to the conventional automakers it's time for a revolution

already projected 200k for cybertruck reservations...i'm sure $100 refundable helps tremendously

in BC this triangle truck represents getting 400km+ range from the company leading in EV tech but without luxury surtax

100% agree. In fact that other truck posted on this page, I was going to say it's even uglier, because it looks like a GMC or whatever but made up to be on a shitty ABC sci-fi show that gets canceled after one season

The actual cybertruck, I still don't like it, but that's personal taste. I think most vehicles made after 1997 or so are ugly. Mercedes and BMW set the trends of what ugly cars should look like, and everyone copies them

i'm trying to like it but i cant.

i'm really thinking the designers wanted the cheapest possible minimal design to cash in and save on their end for the highest profits,reason why everything is so flat the less machining to produce.


all the luck to telsa it's something i wouldn't love to purchase,as much as other people are rushing to order one,its not for me.

Lol this “breaks the mould of boxy pickups?” This is THE box lol







All things equal I’ll take any domestic half tonne over the cyber truck. Hell I’d even take the pussy import trucks over it.

But all things are not equal. Towing, ground clearance, horsepower/torque and seating capacity are all better with the Tesla. It also has 110/220 power. If you are buying it strictly as a work truck who cares about looks.

If you think a welder would ever buy this thing you’ve never met a welder lol.

As much as they want to tote this as some kind of trades solution, I can pretty much guarantee you this thing ain’t gonna be parked at many job sites.

Also, it will be a decade or more before EV trucks ever have the long range towing payload of a one tonne or 3/4 tonne diesel. The guy with the 3500 Cummins will be in Calgary towing a 5th wheel trailer a day and a half before the Tesla has made its 6th stop to charge in the kootneys

I wonder if a lot of people are going to back out of the reservations after the hype is over. Some people like to just jump on things just because it's new and then once time passes, they realize it was just all emotion in wanting the next new thing or wanting to tell people they're going to get something unique.

If vehicles generally have a common shape and design and everyone's copying each other, it's probably a good idea. Just like how tablets and phones all look the same.

A part of me is wondering if this is simply an experiment to see how much influence Tesla has. I'm not going to deny this is fully function over form, but if Tesla just throws out whatever with good specs, are people going to just bend over and take it.

At this point, it almost seems like Apple has the influence to pull shit like this. If they decided to make a phone shaped like this:



You'll probably have people going nuts over it.
