According to Car & Driver magazine, the base CyberTruck will cost 70K. A tri-motor will set you back 80K.

Local Ford dealer has 2 Lightnings on the lot for 92K each.

If I was loaded to the gills and felt the need to buy an almost 100K vehicle I would almost certainly look for the nearest therapist and have what little brain matter I have examined. I would have to check and see if the VA covered it first. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

I love my Maverick. The perfect truck for me at the right time. I'm getting 23 mpg avg over 800 miles (90%+ local driving, no trips to speak of) and the bloody thing with the I.R.S. handles incredibly good even with the Pirelli tires. I can only imagine how much better it will be with the Falknen Wildpeaks. which are light years better tire.

Saw a Tesla Cybertruck on the road on the drive home tonight.

Anyone interested?

Looks like cross between a Hummer and a DeLorean.

The tires and stance, very Hummer.

Must’ve been too early in the morning (for me…6AM) - when I saw the title I thought the OP meant this:

I don't think it's ugly just odd looking. I think the big issue with ev pickups is the range while towing. And the cost. I think Toyota is right, hybrids are the way to go at least for now.

I've seen a couple on the road - first thing that jumps to mind: "FUGLY!"

I could get past the looks if they had something compelling - like super efficient and or great value (you know, like the Prius had to contend with for 25+ years) - nope, this thing is ugly AND expensive.

It's ugly, but you got that bullet proof glass going for you!

Common Misconception. It was never said that the glass was bulletproof, just the body. It's still "stronger" glass according to Tesla, but not bulletproof.

I read a story about a Rivian getting into a fender bender and it cost close to 50K for repairs. I cant imagine how much it would be to repair one of these things.
