    This is another thing about tesla - their product presentations are not done by pre recorded adverts produced by an advertising agency making a video - instead you get the actual designers and engineers like Franz up on stage with the CEO doing product releases with live audiences and answering questions etc. It seems very open and honest it's a good way to do things and gives recognition and credit to the engineers and other people making the products.

      @Stephen Humble engine bay? You mean the frunk?

      @TDog4444 The R1T looks pretty much the same as an ICE truck with the big chunky engine bay compartment up the front and a stepped down tray at the back.
      I think the R1T is designed to appeal to people nostalgic for owning a big old ICE engine truck so they can have a truck that looks like their dads old truck and cling onto past traditions. The R1T will make them feel assured and conservative and show they are want to fit in and not make any waves or take any risk because the R1T looks much like the vintage trucks we recall from our childhood.
      But the R1T's big chunky engine bay is a fake engine bay since the electric motors are usually transverse mounted very low in the body. The big engine bay is redundant it impedes the drivers view of the road makes it more dangerous for pedestrians and is un-aerodynamic -it's only there to make it look like a good old fashioned truck just like henry ford made them.
      The Cybertruck on the other hand is a designed to be tough functional and high performance - the exterior stainless steel will not be bothered by things that would dent or scratch the shiny body shell of other vehicles. It's also has better aerodynamic performance and an unobstructed view of the road. it takes full advantage of the fact that the motors are low in the body. The cybertruck is designed with performance and function above all else. For the owner it can make a statement they are not defined by the past and are willing to set a new trend or simply they are knowledgeable care about performance and want the best designed truck.
      The R1T is still perfectly functional and has good performance but the Cybertruck's design is intended to advance the state of the art.

      @Roger Starkey Another Tesla fanboy underestimating the competition in the EV space.

Tesla will do OK, as they should, being the first in the segment, but the competition will be fierce.

      As Tesla grows larger and the *market* for EVs expands, largely due to Tesla.... *Any* advertising by others will advertise "EVs", and therefore Tesla by default.

      @skierpage You know very well my point was that just because many of today's scientists adhere to the "climate change" theory, that doesn't make it fact. We have the technology today to observe the climate changing, but cannot tell the exact causes. I wish man was more impactful, as we could then avoid the harmful extremes like hurricanes.
      I'm not doubting the climate is changing, but I do dispute that humans are having a major impact. And I want to know what you think should power our electrical grid - natural gas, coal, nuclear, windmills or solar panels and what should be the priority here, as we all know you can't have a reliable energy grid using just windmills and solar panels.

    • Roger Sears
      Roger Sears 3 ай бұрын

      @skierpage And the majority of the scientific community in the 1600s said the world was flat. In case you hadn't noticed, the Earth goes through heating and cooling cycles. If you think humans are part of the problem, perhaps we should be looking at nuclear power production instead of windmills and solar panels. In any event, this is not an issue that would suggest an immediate upending of our way of life., including elimination of internal combustion powered vehicles.

      @Roger Sears ford has delivered 13,000 F150 in 6 months while Tesla sold 350,000 vehicles all costing more than base F150 electric in last 3 months alone. Cybertuck will eat away from it's competition like the F150. F150 is selling now because of delay in Tesla pickup launch.

      ​@Justin Golden the running joke for CNBC is 'CNBS' because they push out a bunch of crap, straight up lies at times. That's interesting that you think they are in the middle and not political (not true at all of a ton of their content). This content was quality, which is nice though.

      It's hard to not make quality content when you're CNBC in a non political space and here's why: 1) They have enough influence so they can interview anyone, just ask and you'll get an interview with the top guys at Tesla, unlike smaller outlets. 2) They have enough money for good equipment such as cameras, mics, video editors, etc. to put together a high production value video, and 3) They have enough money to do market research and figure out what people actually wanna hear. So your end result is something people want to se that not only gets made, but gets made well. When there's any hint of politics though, all journalistic integrity goes out the window and CNBC becomes about as bad if not worse than CNN or Fox.

      HUH? The interior of the Mercedes EQ, and the newer BMW i4, iX, i7, as well as other EVs kick the crap out of Tesla in terms of design, build quality and materials for their interiors. Go sit in an EQS and then get in a Tesla Model S. See which one you'd rather have. I'd take the Mercedes in a heart beat. I do NOT need a car that does 0-Ticket much faster than the EQS or the BMW EVs do. The only thing that Tesla might have is their Supercharger network and they typically do have slightly better charge times. But I think those advantages might go away. Tesla's been doing it longer, so they have more development time involved. But it Elon detracts from Tesla, then he may find himself behind the 8 ball.

    I love change. I love unique. I own a KTM Super Duke 1290r and MV AGusta 800rr Dragster motorcycle. You do not see these on every corner. I love the minimalistic interior Tesla. No buttons or knobs to date/dust collector. Thinking outside the box vs just another color version of the same thing year after yearb

    When you launched your first car, U got so many popularity on EV. We all were thinking Tesla is only who can make EV. But now other better brands who making better cars with better quality. Charging structure is only matter. It is improving reliability. Good Luck.

    One feature I would like to see changed. Have a look at the display of a Leaf. It is amazingly clear - framed by the upper half of the steering wheel. So much better than the offset touch screen of Tesla. Other than that, Go Tesla.

    Integrity is the foundation of a just society . The motivation, hard work, and proving to others nothing is impossible all come together at tommorrow event. I hope all kids and students watch this as a learning tool to become innovators and create great products that are fun, make the world better and save lives. Tesla motivation stems from The tragedy in Humboldt. Autopilot in trucks will prevent such horrific incidents in the future.

    Like no other, Musk, Holzhausen and team are building a company that's the envy of many around the world. No advertising necessary. Their introduction to products comes directly from their people who speak from the heart. Design and engineering is executed with the user in mind. And like he said, the model S design is still modern and fresh, 14 years in! No need to redesign every couple years. They've removed massive legacy costs with all these efficiencies. Brilliant.

      @Roger Sears In a way but maybe that's OK. Ultimately for me form follows function to a large degree, in this case that depends a lot on how one will use it. Most seem to want it as a fashion statement just as pickups typically are now.
      For ME a truck is crap on the road they are only for off road/dirt roads and hauling a load.

    The FORD design studio is in Dearborn, Mi. Next door to the studio is a HUGE
    warehouse where FORD has examples of EVERY model car & truck they have
    ever built. When the design studio hires a new designer, they send them over to
    the warehouse to look for inspiration from past models. When the new designer
    finds one they like, the studio boss has them pull it out & wash it. BY HAND. He
    wants them to FEEL the lines. Feel the angles & the straights. To really FEEL
    the car. THEN, the boss has them drive it.
