re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
So, the Lincoln Blackwood I do think the truck has a market. It is the luxury market. Which is where the S and X sit. It is an image truck. ...

[quote]Bu my point still stands, the cheaper cost of ownership is meaningful/relevant, not sure why you'd downplay it. [/quote] Because total cost of ownership takes 5 years to equal out. Again, depends on the owner, but 5 years is a long time to own a car for some people....

re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
The size and ugliness of the cybertruck will keep me away. The base model fits my needs and honestly I can justify buying one over a F150 or the like. I don't tow anything and care more about what is inside than out. I'm probably someone in their market. The rang-xiety will always be there I assu...

re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
[quote]frick you can probably outfit an F250 with the big diesel motor (the one that will annihilate the tesla in towing capabilities) and the crewcab with leather and upgraded interior and still have 10k+ left over.[/quote] No doubt. It is a strange market TSLA is positioned in. This is a huge...

re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
[quote]depends on what you're comparing that to. A diesel 2500? Those things take 3 gallons of oil each oil change, need frequent fuel filter changes,are very hard on brakes/tires etc. Also diesel is more expensive than gasoline[/quote] All true. By TSLA numbers it still takes 5 years or so. ...

re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
[quote]Oh, so how much will it be? [/quote] I'd say it might make mid 40's before the EV tax credit (which is what thet are advertising now). Likely will be right under 50 for the first few years. A base 1500 will get you extremely comprable numbers for $25k. Most trucks at 30k are goi...

re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
that's what I am getting at. If you buy the base Tesla then the 0-60 is about the only thing you can't match for a 20k savings going with an ICE truck. Not to mention, test that 0-60 a few times and watch your range plummet....

re: Tesla truck seen in the wild in Vegas - fightin tigers
[quote]Based solely on specs, what trucks at similar pricepoints are beating the Tesla?[/quote] Are you going to dismiss things such as range or move the goalposts when the base tesla is 20k more than a truck that can do the same?...
