I think this is a classic case of Elon punking the public and they don't know better. The very tag line indicates it is a joke "BETTER UTILITY THAN A TRUCK". But I guess it is possible he has completely lost his sense of what utility consumers are looking for in pickup.

I guess it's his vision the future, not mine.

The broken glass is a PR stunt to get clicks and free advertising. Even acrylic would perform better than that. I feel the shattered windows were there to distract attention from the hideous styling of the non-functional vehicle. I'm no expert but I know what ugly is.

Here is a rather funny take on the new Tesla Truck.

Remembering the kid who waited until the night before the pinewood derby to build his car. "Hey Dad, can I use the belt sander?

This was on Fox news this morning and they are taking orders.
I can't believe they are building it. Remember the old commercial years ago?

I think they are sandbagging on the tow rating, with a 3,500lb payload on the base truck and electric drive they can pull a hell of a lot more than 7k pounds. I think I might change my next purchase from a 5er to a travel trailer so I can pull with the tri-motor, ~250 miles of towing range without using any gas is going to be great. The only interesting thing would be that I'd need 2x 50A spots reserved, one for the TT and one for the truck to refill (that or a splitter and a smart device that limits the truck to whatever the TT isn't using).

I think you will need to rethink your range when towing.

Would you even pull a trailer out of your driveway without rear view mirrors? I wouldn't. I realize it has cameras but unless they are on stalks that extend to 9 feet I would consider them useless. I like to look down the side of my trailer when towing and backing. Good point regarding destination charging. Don't want any one way trips!
