Tesla Cybertruck Test Ride and Impressions!

  • Published on Nov 22, 2019
  • We ride in Tesla's newly announced Cybertruck prototype! Just hours after its highly-anticipated unveiling, we meet up with Ryan McCaffrey of the Ride the Lightning Tesla podcast to discuss details we noticed from our test ride and getting up close with this futuristic electric pickup. It's controversial and aggressively designed, with an aggressive price to boot.

    In my opinion Cybertruck is a masterpiece of bold innovation and design that only Tesla
    is brave enough to attempt. I think is looks much better than run of the mill pickups.
    One of the main reasons that the Cybertruck can be produced at a lower cost
    relates to how the body is produced. The stainless-steel body can be formed by
    simply folding the sheet metal without the necessity for expensive stamping
    machines. Also, the absence of paint results in significant cost savings. A
    paint shop cost 200 million dollars in initial capital expenditure and has
    additional ongoing expenses. The painting and drying of is time consuming and
    is often a bottle neck in production. Cybertruck
    eliminates this cost and bottle neck. The exoskeleton design was necessary to
    decrease the weight of the Cyber truck so that it is not heavier than the
    conventional pickup truck despite its heavy batteries. Other electric pickup
    makers will have a hard time competing with this design in terms of
    specifications and cost. The bizarre appearance of the Cybertruck is a
    necessity to keep costs low for these specifications. The price and
    specifications of this vehicle are so compelling that it is a viable
    alternative to a conventional car. I would normally never buy a pickup truck,
    but I will be getting the Cybertruck as my daily driver. It costs the same as
    my Tesla Model 3 and has so much more capability and room. Should be great in
    heavy snow and won’t rust from the salt used on streets in the winter in the
    Chicago area where I live. Won’t need to worry that one bird shit will stain
    the car forever. The only downside when
    compared to a car is its large size which might cause issues with parking in
    some areas. The pickup truck will use more electricity per mile driven then the
    car but the additional cost difference is not as significant as with internal
    combustion pickup trucks. Once the general public understands this, there might
    be a whole new segment of population that will opt for the cyber truck instead
    of a car. Power outage in the house? Run an extension cord to Cybertruck and
    get by with powering essentials like phones, broadband modems, and rechargeable
    led lighting. You could even cook with an instant pot or induction cooker. Also,
    Elon confirmed on twitter the car may have a solar option for the bed cover
    that can add some range when the car is parked in the sun. I don’t care that
    other people may not like how this looks. If they want something that looks
    like a regular pickup they will pay more and get less. Not a choice that I
    would make. I would like to see this low-cost polygon body concept scaled down
    to a mid-sized SUV with three rows of seats with the last two rows foldable and
    removable. This would be a better alternative to a family car than a pickup
    truck. Scaling this down to an urban hatch back the size of a Honda Fit should
    allow an EV with a range of 200 miles for low $20Ks in couple of years.

    It looks like a concept design I made for a car when I was in preschool. Give me one for free and I won’t sue for copy right infringement.

    I can't call that a truck. It looks like shit honestly. Like a concept model that's nowhere close to being complete

    no side mirrors feels like a really bad idea. They are to useful for tight parking or for finding what drives in your angles

    1:25 Polarizing for sure. Fans of crappy low poly graphics must love that thing... whilst the rest of the world, with working eyes, know it’s hideous and would never get one. Ugh.

    I honestly don't see it being able to be sold in Europe. The hard body and lack of mirrors are two very important points to address in a vehicle.

    That much glass and you still choose to put all display information out of the line of the drivers view rather then using a HUD,makes no design sense...

    The design has grown on me over the last week or so. It occurred to me that many auto manufacturers showcase their futuristic designs at auto shows, but they're never put into production. Elon Musk gives us the futuristic design and will actually sell it.
