I read that Elon Musk is up $18 billion this week.

Down sharply, $746 right now. Looks like it hit a low of $718, so far.

I think it's the world's ugliest vehicle. I really do.

Nevertheless, there are now over 535,000 paid pre-order reservations for the Tesla Cybertruck. (Its reservation has now outpaced Tesla’s Model 3 that got 518,000 reservations in five months in 2017.)

The $70,000 model will be available 2021. The $40,000 model will be available in late 2022.

Our species is doomed.

It does look like it was designed in a Lego contest.

You can bet zero reservations from someone who ever loaded a pickup.

This one looks better, but hard to cypher through the bs....https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/meet-nikola-motors-stunning-ev-pickup-truck-competitor-teslas-cybertruck

I think a small sized pu truck with a 2-300 mile range would get a lot of use for delivery's. Phoenix where this factory is supposedly going to be making these ev trucks has a lot of spare nuke energy with which to charge vehicles with. 0-60 in under 3 seconds isn't necessary. I can also see how someone that wanted to, enough, could have enough solar panels to charge an ev. Not saying it would be better for the environment, only that it's possible.

It is noteworthy that in addition to a towing capacity of 14,000 lbs... the $70K Tesla pickup truck can do 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. Yikes. (Presumably that's with no cargo?)

It's going to be a really crowded market: Rivian R1T, Nikola Badger, Bollinger B2, Lordstown Endurance, Hercules Alpha, GMC Hummer EV, Atlis XT, and a Ford F150 electric.

Are there enough buyers out there to justify this many options? Presumably other established companies (Dodge, Toyota, Nissan) will eventually dive in, too.

Yes, the instant torque is great. But when a Tesla Model X SUV tows 5,000 lbs... range (miles) deteriorates by a whopping 50%.
