It will be nice to see actual statistics and numbers instead of all the speculation. As in what the real live range will be when loaded, how long to recharge, what the net hauling capacity will be, what the drivetrain is and how it works.

The price certainly seems pretty reasonable, especially considering it is bound to have lower maintenance costs with no ICE to worry about.

I’m kinda interested on what kind of charging facilities they’ll have at depots like Walmart etc. Will they be multiple V3 Superchargers (I mean like two at a time). Will it be something like an 800 volt pack and a special supercharger?

Just curious.

My son who worked for Tesla said that they tend on cram the latest tech available and on development as they build up a new vehicle. Even putting in improvements as they go along.

That could be the reason why Tesla don't etch their specs on stone until finally on production.

From Elon, his sermon from the mount.


Latest from my former friend Elon.

In summary:

1. Semi mass production challenge are fuel cells (says he can produce as much if these are available.)

2. Cybertruck - a few will be produced by the end of the year (there goes missing the May 2021 supposedly accelerated timeline).

Funny, he did not mention about the chip shortage affecting productions of cars, phones, computers...

I always suspected Tesla cars have packs and packs of D batteries.

No wonder they bought Maxwell battery-making company.[emoticon]

The rear view answered my question on how the cab articulates when there is no seeming gap between it and the trailer.

It appears there is just a wing-like flap the covers the gap between the cab and the trailer that move and follows the angle of articulation. I first thought an accordion connections just like the long city buses which will prove a hassle to connect and disconnect when hauling turn around is a costly premium.
