How can someone dislike this guy? Elon say that the Cybertruck will hit volume production by 2023:


Great interview

1. This is not possible, therefore he is a fraud, like all billionaires.
2. He's not a fraud, but it reminds a person of how useless they are, and how little they have accomplished despite sometimes haughty titles.

If #2 didn't make you feel bad enough, we discovered this week the richest man in the the world cuts his own hair to save time, doesn't give a flying f*** about frontpage reddit posts making fun of his haircut.

I could never like any billionaire as they have all screwed over millions of people to attain their wealth. That said I respect him a little more for not giving a **** about what people think of his hair.

FTFY. Could be a German in the 1930's, statement would work just fine. But hey, history repeats itself for a reason. "No but this time is different you see, because WE are the righteous ones!"

This update will probably make some people here happy . My Plaid is at service and they found that a cooling fan failed and they are waiting for parts.

And..

Quote:
. The Tesla Model S Plaid Is the Quickest-Charging EV We've Tested
The Plaid can accept 250 kW for five minutes, helping it to beat the previous Model S's charging speed by nearly 20 percent.

Its total time was 38 minutes-some nine minutes, or 19 percent, quicker than the 2021 Model S Long Range Plus we tested-with the highest average charging rate (125 kilowatts) we've seen yet. That betters the average charging rate that we've measured on the Audi e-tron (121 kW) and Porsche Taycan (118 kW) and obliterates that of some other EVs, such as the VW ID.4 (82 kW) or Ford Mustang Mach-E (47 kW).

https://www.caranddriver.com/news/am...t-ev-quickest/

Battery cell technology is more important than just bumping up the voltage. The new 4860 will improve charging speed significantly even if Tesla decides to stay with a lower voltage architecture. I can't wait for my four motor Cybertruck.

I assume Lucid will beat the Plaid since they have a larger pack, 900v and 2170 cells.

They also did a full review:

https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...m=social-media

A track mode and speed limit update could fix the things that they didn't like. And also some $2k rotors and pads from MPP that will get released early in January.

How much do you want to bet? . How can they beat them in sales when they don't even have batteries to make them? They are planing on making 80k trucks by 2024. There is only 200k reservations for the lighting while for the Cybertruck the rumor is around 3M. Even if only 40% of the reservations becomes order that's a serious number of trucks.

I think if Ford had the production capacity and dealers were not charging ridiculous ADM, the lightening would outsell the Cyber truck. However, Ford lacks capacity right now and dealers charging ridiculous ADM doesnít help.

This is for people that care about their safety, safety of their family, pedestrians and other drivers instead of some panel gaps:
