    Electric cars are faster off the line. All other factors aside combustion takes time.

    Tesla has not released any (clear) images yet (other then what you see here).... https://www.teslarati.com/teslas-fut...in-the-making/
    So we will have to wait another 2 hrs (8:00 PM PST) to know how wild it is.

    What is a Truck?
    Did we see one revealed at last nights Tesla event?
    https://youtu.be/3-WejNhPhiY

    For some, a truck MUST haul full sheets of plywood with ease.
    For others it must haul their single ATC.
    Unfortinitly Tesla chose the latter


    After seeing such beautiful renderings of many talented artists best guess on what the Model P would look like, I was SHOCKED at what I saw until I heard the reason for the hard lines.
    It's an exoskeleton design so aparintly the skin is the bone (not fully clear on this).

    I'm sure it will haul full sheets of plywood with the tailgate down & I'm curious to see if any provisions have been incorporated into the design to accommodate overhead racks.

    I think I'm starting to warm up to it certainly not from its looks but rather from its utilitarian aspect.
    The stats look impressive & the cost reasonable.
    A bit disappointed it won't have four motors got even greater off-road capabilities but perhaps future models will.

    At least this will insure that the Big Boys offer their own E-trucks soon.

    Uhm, they made it bulletproof I suspect because a multitude of people were actively trying to kill that monstrosity.

    I actually have been holding off swapping mine out based on the thought it might be cool to get one, now that I have seen it I will pass.

    I never knew much about Musk but from his performance last night I am at a loss as to how he got ahead. He looked like a future son in law showing up to Chanukah with pineapple glazed ham.

    Hope he makes a more mainstream truck. To flashy and futuristic for me. Hell....the f-150s platinum tailgate is to flashy for me.

    Not much new on the motorcycle Front.....

    I'm thinking the Big Boy's (less Harley) are waiting until solid state battery's exist in the wild in mass quantities before they jump in.
    (Fingers crossed that's only a few years from now).

    So they'll sell exactly 146,000 units. Ford sells between 800k and 900k pick up trucks annually.
    Officially, Down for the count

    Tesla hasn't sold ANY trucks yet so it's too early to say what the final build numbers will be.

    With a $100 fully refundable deposit likely there will be a high dropout rate.
    Also the number of deposits grew to 200k as of Sunday (3 days after launch).
    Also this build will be a two year process so divide between two.

    Not a huge number but a substantial start that will likely grow as the models become produced.
    Lastly bear in mind that Tesla's ultimate goal is not to dominate the industry but rather to change the industry.

    Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
