The electric motors are a very small part of the electric drive train. If in doubt price a controller for one of the existing vehicles and as you add more "stuff" to the vehicle the price goes higher. I had a guy wanting to give me a Toyota a few years ago and the price of the new control parts and new batteries not counting labor was higher than the blue book price. Then when the government starts adding on highway excise taxes to replace the gasoline road tax the whole picture will change. Also electric cars create a whole new set of safety issues that have yet to be dealt with. I think that electric vehicles are in are future but I believe that before it is done we will be talking about the good old days when traveling was much cheaper in are gasoline powered vehicles. How much will it cost on your power bill to charge them each night is another cost many people don't think about.
Cutters Club is going to have a hard time with that thick stainless.
I long for the automotive design of yesteryear, like the 1930's and 1940's. If today's manufacturers used those old body styles on the new platforms we'd have some vehicles that would be safe, efficient and classy.
How far will the battery really last dragging even my 2500 pound camper behind it? Will I hit the Rocky Mountains and watch the charge gauge drop like a rock? I'd hate to be the first person on this forum to try and tow a vintage camper behind the Tesla Cyber truck.
Love the giant cube! At least it adds a little color. On the other topic, the gas gauge drops significantly in mountains, too. It’s really not that different from an ICE vehicle, high speeds, jackrabbit starts and inconsistent driving affect the “fuel” economy. And Tesla has a big, and growing network of supercharging stations on every major highway in the US. There will always be issues with any form of transportation for the masses. We love old things, but we are open to new as well.
And I mentioned to a friend who has an old Airstream about pulling it with a CYBRTRK (as Musk calls it). His eyes lit up, then he said he’d have to get it polished. Dang.
