    Tinting Model Y Roof

    Wow way too dark. I bet it's hard as heck to see out of your car at night.

    Model Y Auto Pilot Nearly Unusable

    I just took delivery of my MY performance and drove it over 200 miles home from Atlanta. I was surprised how well the AP worked. I only had one significant phantom slow down (not a full oh phantom brake). The lane keep assist seemed to work better than my 2020 M3P and there was none of the crazy...

    Current Delivery Times

    My MYP was scheduled delivery window of Aug28th to Sep3rd, but I just got the text and earliest delivery appointment was Sep 4th in Atlanta. I was hoping I could get it this weekend, but waiting one more week isn't the end of the world!

    What is this SA talk? I placed an order on July 10th and am supposed to take delivery in a little over a week. No one from Tesla has ever contacted me.

    There are quite a few videos. I think the 1" lowered suspension height on the Performance makes up for the extra wheel weight, basically making their range the same. There is a misnomer about the Long Range, it would imply that is is longer range than the Performance. But that's not true, the...

    Interesting how soon you would get a LR? I ordered a LR a few days after you and EDD was December! It's all good though as I'll have my P here in a couple of weeks.

    Ya I thought the same thing until I watched multiple Youtube video tests of LR vs P and they both came out to the same range in testing... Then I figured I'd get the performance boost for $2K on the LR, so with the 20" Turbines I had on my LR, I was only down to a 4K difference in cars at that...

    Looks like my change to MYP paid off. MYLR ordered July 10th with EDD October. EDD moved to December last week, in which I changed to MYP on Aug 14th. Today I already have a VIN and narrow EDD of Aug 27-Sep 2nd in Atlanta. So looks like if you want a MY now.. definitely change to MYP.

    Kinda sucks I let my LR order go 5 weeks without checking my account. If I knew it would be pushed back till December like I knew a few days ago, I would have switched to a P right out of the gate. I could have had a P being delivered very soon...

    Laugh; blame Tesla not us. I cannot help it they used bait and switch tactics on my LR. Order with a EDD of October, then five weeks later check order stratus and it says December! Some of us cannot wait half a year for a car, especially when we were on the fence between the two versions anyway...

    I originally wanted and ordered the LR because of the taller/better riding suspension. But seeing my EDD pushed back two months to almost 2022 was untenable. Will be interesting to see how quickly I can get a P.

    Sounds like an error. I ordered a few days after you and my order said December.

    You guys sure you don't keep your place in line? I ordered MY LR on July 10th, web-site said October delivery during order. Logged on yesterday and it had EDD all the way back to late Nov/Mid-Dec, was like screw that and changed to MYP. Today my MYP (that I changed to yesterday) says Estimated...

    My early July LR order that originally said October, yesterday switched to end of November/Mid December, like screw that I'm not waiting half a year for a freaking car. Tesla did a total bait-and switch. Switched to a P even though I wasn't looking for the harsher ride.

    August Order Estimate Delivery

    I ordered LR July 10th with a then October delivery estimate, and then I check today my EDD moved all the way to Late November/Mid December. Screw that! I switched to the Performance model. They are totally screwing the LR customers.

    Guys, need some input. I ordered a Y long range on July 11th, that had a expected delivery of October. Now it says on the Order page Late November to late DECEMBER! That's basically false advertising. I ordered over a month ago and may have to wait almost till the new year to get my car? How is...

    Superchargers open to all other EVs later this year (2021)

    In a later tweet he says the SC network worldwide. Why wouldn't a Rivian be able to charge is he says he's opening it up to other EV's?

    Superchargers open to all other EVs later this year (2021)

    This is an epically bad decision. Tesla will regret this. This decision is ONLY a negative for all current Tesla owners AND future Tesla owners. SC network is already unable to keep up with the Y/3's coming onto the road. The SC build out has been way slower than planned. So now Tesla owners...

    Is 350 miles enough for towing 10k pounds?

    The amount of energy left over to propel the vehicle with an ICE; even after most of it is wasted in producing heat is still TONS more energy than electric vehicles contain. That's why a semi truck with a 80,000lb GVWR and huge aero drag still gets an average of 6.5 MPG. Electric vehicles due...

    Options

    What options do you think the CT will have available for it? Interior trim? -cost? Wheels? -cost? Vault/bed slatted/roll-up solar charging cover? -$4,000? ATV? -$10,000?

    Is 350 miles enough for towing 10k pounds?

    Real world testing is going to prove me correct. Hell, an advertised 500+ mile range on the CT will be closer to low 400's in real world testing right off the bat. Even less if the CT has any sort of tires that have off-road traction. A tiny little 4,600 lb trailer cut a Model X's range to...

    Is 350 miles enough for towing 10k pounds?

    Most people here and in general will seriously over-estimate range towing a trailer with the CT. ESPECIALLY when it's cold outside/you live in Northern Climates. Based on my calculations; my Tri-Motor CT will tow my 10,000 lb 30' Airstream Classic a maximum of ~140 miles at 80F and ~90 miles at...

    Hummer EV

    If you look under the Hummer deposit section, it says that dealers can charge you whatever they want for the truck after you put a deposit down. I'm so sick of this SCAMERICA crap. I'm not putting a deposit down and bet on getting a truck and then have some sleaze bag dealership try and gut me...

    Hummer EV

    Honestly, I would be purchasing the highest end Hummer model if a Tri-Motor CyberTruck didn't exist, But the CT is just a much better value. 500 mile range and stainless body is amazing for the $78K price with FSD.

    Who will be the least efficient, Cybertruck or Porsche Taycan Turbo S?

    The tire tread pattern will matter greatly. The truck was shown with off-road tires which will noticeably affect range. To have any off-road capability whatsoever, you can't put skinny hard-compound high efficiency tires on it.

    Why is more motors better for the average truck consumer?

    The single motor RWD model is a small market segment (just look at the pre-orders). Tesla isn't going to put their more expensive 200 kWh pack into a single motor vehicle IMO. Virtually everyone who has the money to pony up for the 200 kWh pack isn't going to want just one motor, hence it's not...
  28. Zybane

    Why is more motors better for the average truck consumer?

    Having Tri-motors has absolutely nothing to do with the 500+ mile range. It's because the Tri-Motor has the largest battery pack, speculated at 200-240 kWh.

    Cybrtrk RN #

    Some of the RN's don't make sense. Like I ordered within 1 minute of Elon saying "orders open" and I have a higher number than people that ordered half an hour after me according to that spreadsheet. All US orders too. Makes no sense.

    Solar power math for a custom camper shell on the tri-motor.

    lol those dinky little systems would barely put a dent in charging a 200 kWh CyberTruck. Like filling an Olympic swimming pool with a garden hose. This 1,300 square foot solar install in direct sunlight has about the same wattage as a Tesla 220V/72Amp home charger: And would take about three...

    Solar power math for a custom camper shell on the tri-motor.

    Virtually all truck campers sold today would not fit in the Cybertruck. They would be blocked by the sailplanes. The sides of truck campers go over the sides of the top of pickup beds. You would have to go the custom route, which increases costs 2-3 times. Also, a truck camper wouldn't have...

    Tri Motor versus Quad Motor design

    Tesla went with three motors for the top configuration as it's the entire corporate top tier setup going forward, known as the "Plaid" platform.

    This truck design had better be a joke....

    That has to be the stupidest thing I've read all month. Ya, electric pickup truck buyers want a 2-seat goofy looking cut off sedan with a 3.5 foot bed and less than 800 lb cargo capacity. Where do you loons come from?

    My two biggest problems with the cybertruck

    If you must absolutely tow a 5th wheel with your CyberTruck, just get a tow dolly:
  38. Zybane

    Wish it was a foot shorter

    The HPWC doesn't nee to be installed in a garage.

    Wish it was a foot shorter

    The CyberTruck doesn't care about garages.
  40. Zybane

    Will the Cybertruck Be able to tow a 5th Wheel?

    I would never consider a 5th wheel behind a CyberTruck. They are heavier and taller than other forms of trailers and will be terrible on your electric range. IMO a travel trailer is the only way to go with a CyberTruck. Less weight and wind resistance.

    Doug DeMuro: “tremendously expensive”

    ugg Doug is a retard. Comparing a AWD dual motor CyberTruck with tons of standard features versus some crappy stripped down 2WD gas pickup. The CyberTruck has over double the payload capacity. There is more to a pickup truck than just towing capacity. The CyberTruck has more like F350/F450...

    Fair tug of war?

    The CyberTruck will rape any ICE pickup truck in a tow test. Like an electric traction motor diesel train locomotive, maximum torque is at 0.00001 RPM. You would have to rev up a ICE pickup truck to get any decent torque, and that works against it as it will break the tires loose and be an...

    I think Rivian should have been a little more bold. I mean really the only design feature outside of pickup truck norms is the headlights/lightbar.

    I live in and tow an Airstream.

    Elon doesn't care what you asked for. And going on 200,000 deposits disagrees with your "no one wants it".

    Best Config for Overlanding - Dual or Tri-Motor?

    Tri-motor by far. Two rear motors act as a locking diff. Plus the tri motor has a larger battery, important for overlanding.
