    I placed the order Model Y but I'm glad that I cancelled it. IMO Cybertruck offers so much more value compares the Y, more seating capacity, utilities, durability (not worry shopping carts/ICE drivers dents). Damn, the ground clearance, definitely good for the North. It is worth the wait! That's my 5 cents (don't have penny in the North anymore), it is ready for anything :)

    i don't think my car will last the one year wait.

    If the truck was available at the time time, i'd probably do the same as you. Now, I'm thinking to get both :p

    Law enforcement should switch too and weaponize the trucks too. Must be kidding.

    How are you even comparing the two? They're in two different classes - the Y a crossover, the Cybertruck a full-size pickup. Are people really just buying specs now, irrespective of other considerations?

    I was looking at the sizes...the Truck is huge! I like parking in my home garage. I think the size will annoy me in tight parking spaces in lots and structures.

    For me, I bought the 3 because its the only tesla I can justify buying at the time. I would have absolutely bought a SUV for the same price if I could. I settled on the 3 because it was the best bang for the buck. Model Y is a bit better, but a tesla truck adds a lot of utility for the cost.

    Also, in my office, there is a LOT more buzz around truck than model 3, which speaks well for it given how popular 3 has been.

    You’re not buying the truck, you’re a window shopper. During the next two year (at a minimum) wait, something newer will be introduced, you’ll cancel your $100 order, and will then say you’re going to “get” whatever it is because it faster, stronger, etc.

    You just like to ride the trends. It’s okay, you’re not alone. Plenty of people do that on car forums.
