You just come down from your office, or your home, and I'll be parked in a discreet location. When you get close to the bed of the truck it'll be open for you. Enter and get you boom boom on. 30 minute slots (minimum) will be available.

Once autonomous driving is 100% enabled I'm going to have a fleet of these on the streets. I will incorporate as Mobile Bang Studios but the business name will be Electric boom carriers. Going Black Friday shopping for some green and purple suits, and some grillz.
I think it will work great for the cartel as well. Bullet proof autonomous truck carrying drugs across the border

Love all the stats it just god awful looking. Would have been much better to lose the body panel and glass durability and strength to have something that doesn't look like a 80's vision of a future truck.

I love when Subaru people are talking about how "bad looking" something is. It's subjective! none of us bought a Subaru because it was the best looking vehicle or even good looking at all (Please don't flame me, you know what I mean).

I'm buying one.

Cyber Truck is best-looking 4-door Tesla.

Roadster still best Tesla.

Did you just use ďMack truckĒ as a synonym for a semi-tractor, a la Kleenex?

Yes sir, I thought about using Peterbilt but lightning beat me to it.

If it makes you sleep easier at night. I always use the term tissue. calling tissue a Kleenex is just off the wall insane.

Tell them to comb the desert... "Sir, aren't we taking this a bit to literal***8230;"


How about the word bobtail.

is it really that ugly in person though? I can only imagine watching this thing rip down a quarter mile in 10.8 seconds embarrassing supercars....and 2.8 0-60 from a stop light....the thing would look insane doing that, I'd probably forget that it was "ugly" at that point and just wow in amazement.

Well good news for you, supercars were designed for road / circuit coarse racing, not the 1/4 mile.

Not all cars live their life a quarter mile at a time.

This conversation made me laugh. How many here have used the term Crescent wrench when referring to an open-end, adjustable wrench?

I blame the interweb. Deffinition.com states it as an accurate term. So I went with it. I Should of used Webster.

After I have my car for a few years my plan is to use my car as a robot taxi if that ever happens .

Towing with a Battery electric Tesla pickup? They seemed to have licked some heat issues but the power draw is killer.The electric motors are awesome torque and controllable power they found out long ago in train locomotives , boats and tug boats now all run electric motors .They solution they found was to install a diesel engine to drive a generator to power the electric motors. Can fuel cells make these practical or will battery tech catch up ?

They could at least try to hide their contempt for Tesla a little better.

It's not a problem when an F-150 gets 8mpg towing 5k lbs. but the horror when the same physics applies to a Model X!

Very true, but for towing the whiners do have a point regarding charging times.
Filling up that diesel towing 10k lbs of boat takes 5 minutes and you're off. Even a Supercharger charging a 500 mile capacity battery pack is gonna take an hour and a half on the fastest charger they have currently.

EV makes sense for your regular car, DD, etc, stuff like that. I wouldn't want to go on a road trip in one until there are chargers, 480 volt or more at many gas stations.

+1. Totally agree

This is a hate crime. I believe we should push a law through congress immediately that protects individuals that own and develop electrical vehicles.


This law should target individuals that park illegally in electric car parking spots with or without chargers and who speak negatively against the electric car development or obvious faults in adds or issues that may arise in electric vehicles.
