Tesla CEO Elon Musk just unveiled their first electric pickup truck, called Cybertruck.



Cybertruck will come in three models, and will be available in 250, 300, and 500 miles of range. Tesla will start selling the pickup on 2021.

My thoughts - it doesn't look like a conventional pickup truck. Frankly, it looks like a speedboat on wheels.

    I was expecting an actual truck, like an 18-wheeler. Though this looks like something out of Back to the Future II.

    That is where the car from Fortress ended up.

  • Didn't the demo for the vehicle go horribly wrong? Their claim for unbreakable glass hit the ground when one of the volunteers was asked to throw an object. The glass shattered. lol!.

    It does indeed look very futuristic, but it doesn't seem to be practical for its purposes at least. And there's the issue with costs as well, who knows what the starting price is going to be.

    Tesla might want to slow down a bit and solve it's 'bursting into fire without warning' problem some of the cars seem to have.

    I find it amazing that so few people have figured out this is a public relations ploy.

    (From the articles I saw, perhaps only roughly 1 in 30 or 40 people realize that a brilliant joke was played on them. Well done, Elon!)

    The press -- even the automotive publications -- fell for it!

    But, don't worry... that is NOT the new Tesla truck.

    From the grungy metal finish... to the poorly fitting panels... to the glass that broke (twice)... to the fact that they gave very few specifications... to the lack of interior images... it's a FAKE.

    I absolutely loved Elon's well-rehearsed, "Room for improvement" comment. Hilarious... and completely scripted.

    These events are VERY CAREFULLY planned. Heck, they probably threw a dozen metal balls at those windows to MAKE CERTAIN THEY WOULD BREAK. (Otherwise Elon's joke wouldn't work.)

    This is one of the most ingenious PR STUNTS EVER. It has EVERYONE talking (which was the goal).

      Well the breaking windows cost him $600 million in stock price so maybe great marketing or maybe someone screwed up ... But yes Mr Musk doesnt seem to do anything without a great deal of thought ... And he doesn't have a single dollar in his marketing budget

      In the grand scheme of things, that swing will be meaningless.

      When the new truck is ACTUALLY revealed, the stock will rebound in a major way... and the investors will all talk about what a genius Elon is.

      Pfft! Tesla received almost 150,000 orders for the new trucks. The share price will bounce back.

    Design is poor, although function is really compelling. It's not the kind of future car I'm expecting but it's not a bad truck, either.

    I'm expecting it to be really expensive already, though. Might need to reconsider the design.

    I read an article where a car design engineer said the design was genius because of the minimum corners, curves and edges will save billions in production costs.

    Just finished watching "The Current War" with Tesla and Edison to name a few. Fascinating, especially what Edison said at the end about how he reacted when his bulb got past the 10 hour barrier, (hopefully from a quote) after 3 years of thousands of failed attempts.

    Worth a look if you are into great inventors, and how some where better than marketing than others.

    And Tesla did work for Edison for a short while.

        I would say Mark, that you are getting it mixed up with "The Current Stand" song, from Kids in the Kitchen Aussie band.

        Edison also said that he came up with a major breakthrough every 6 months and minor ones more frequently.

        Edison also had his share of fryups, but thankfully the movie didn't directly show that.

          Nope. He's referring to this one:


          Hmm. Even an on topic song.

    Elon may have some competition to his truck. Nikola Motors started taking orders for their Hydrogen Fuel Cell trucks. The Badger is a lot nicer looking than the Cyber truck. Biggest thing is if Nikola gets into production. A good view of the truck can be found at NikolaMotor.com

      Nikola's name is certainly getting used a good deal which is good, or some of his genius is hitting mainstream, but Musk may have an up and coming advantage up his sleeve.

      https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/30/tesl...e-battery.html

      Or making 400 miles range and 1 million miles duration, standard and halving the cost.

      This could explain why Tesla stock has been booming lately?
