Still rumor and speculation but excited nonetheless.

I think suspension components, rubber seals, AC units, steering components etc will all have standard shelf life’s. But the body is stainless steel. I can see them having long lifes. Processing hardware will date itself eventually. Software is easy. My wife’s Tesla seems to get a new version at least once a month.

Times are a changing.

And there are semis made of ordinary rolled steel with more than a million miles still running.

How can Cybertruck be any worse when it's stainless steel?

One of the first Model S has gone 559,000. A million can't be too long in the future.

We have been driving an electric car for going on 9 years. They are all proving to be far more reliable and need far less maintenance than a fuel-powered vehicle. Since our house got solar panels, we charge for free.

Sure and most modern vehicles go to the junkyard with perfectly functional engines...200k miles is nothing special when they go.

Longhaul commercial semis often do 500+miles per day 5-6 days per week. Works out to around 125-150k miles per year. At that rate, you can hit a million miles in well under 10yrs.

Passenger cars typically run about a tenth of that (12-15k/yr). At 15k/yr, that's 67yrs to reach a million miles. At 15-20yrs, suspension, electrical glitches and a bunch of other things are failing. Interiors are worn out. It's simply not cost effective to completely rebuild when you can buy a newer vehicle for less.

They are solving a non-existent problem. Modern drivetrains already are plenty durable enough to outlast the vehicle.
