    I wonder if this pick up will be suitable as a delivery truck? I'm a courier and would love that! If it's as big as Elon claims then it sounds like it would be possible.
    I burn $1000 worth of diesel a month drive 160 -200 km daily.....
    Sure would be awesome to go electric!
    Rivian's delivery Van isn't big enough for my purpose my box is 16' x 8'

    Here's me crossing my fingers!!!!

    How much weight in there? I'm thinking the bed will be 5' or maybe 6', not 8'. It's also quite possible it will be a unibody (scaled up S/X/3 chassis) and not body on frame. This may make it harder to do things like change the bed to a box.

    My truck is a 4500 so 1.5ton.
    Didn't Elon say his new truck could have a F150 in it's bed?
    Getting delivery trucks off of fossil fuels would be great for the environment

    Well, Elon says a lot of things :p That's why we're all so eagerly awaiting the reveal so we can finally see what they're thinking.

    But I agree, delivery trucks use a ton of fuel. Fingers crossed it will tick all the right boxes!

    Not sure their battery technology is there yet....
    few other aspects seem suspect, vague on charging times, 62 m/hr top speed
