If I turn in my 15-year-old car, with 250,000 km on it, where does it go?  Is there an enterprise taking that car, putting in a new engine and selling it?  Likely no.

 

You might sell it to a 19 year old as their first car.  They might run it another 3-5 years maybe...  If you trade it in to Tesla then I don't know what there policy is.  Would they give you anything for it?

Used car sales will also potentially tank if this path is stuck to. No gas stations alone will kill the sales of ICE vehicles. EV battery replacement will kill low cost vehicle ownership in general.

 

Used pick-ups without modern emissions controls (on diesels) and less complicated V8s (gas) are rapidly increasing in value, though.

 

20 year old pick-ups are selling for $30k. New ones with the same trims, etc, are $110k. Crazy.

The demise of inexpensive vehicles is well underway. You will own nothing and be happy.....

Tesla finally released the Cybertruck's official specs. Here's how it measures up.

 

 

 

 

 

Tesla now lists estimated purchase prices for all Cybertruck models on its website, before any tax credits.

 

The estimated starting price for the Cybertruck is $60,990 for the rear-wheel drive, 250-mile range model (though Tesla's website indicates those models won't be available until 2025). That's about $20,000 more than what Musk originally promised for a starting price at the Cybertruck's first reveal in 2019.

 

The all-wheel drive, 340-mile range Cybertruck costs an estimated $79,990 before tax credits, while the "Cyberbeast" 320-mile range model will run you an estimated $99,900 before any incentives. Both of those higher-end models have a 2024 release.

On the day of the CyberTruck's release, Tesla has launched a video on its website showing the Model Y splashing through mud and driving through snowy terrain, I guess it's a bit of a troll, lol. I do enjoy the trolling :)

 

No Canadian pricing yet.

Oof on the pricing. I thought they'd have it lower until economies of scale make it profitable for them. Guess not.

Yes, Elon personally walked each buyer to the car and opened the door for them, they got in and were driven away.  10 deliveries.

The Tesla Cybertruck's Range Extender Is Something Very Different

 

A bed-mounted optional range extender battery will add 130+ miles to the Cybertruck All-Wheel Drive and 120+ miles to the tri-motor Cyberbeast.
