You're going to drive your ELECTRIC truck into water?


Good luck

Funny, Ol' Musky can also serve briefly as a boat and then an anchor

It looks like it's made with Legos.

Assuming it ever sees the light of day. How many years ago was this announced?

A quick check on Wikipedia says 2019.

It also says it won't have any door handles, it will "just sense you approaching and open the doors". Yeah, that will be great for what is supposed to be a working vehicle. Every time you walk up to the bed to get something or load something the doors will open.

As someone who designs electronics for a living, I'm still kind of salty that you can't get most cars with manual window cranks. "No door handles" is one of the worst ideas I've heard.

Wanker, not anchor. Everyone is calling you a wanker, Elong.

I generally really like Tesla cars, but the models with no interior mechanical door openers scare the crap out of me. There are two models where rear passengers have to peel up the carpet and the emergency door release is under the carpet and one where you have to remove the speaker grille to find the door release.
In an emergency, the car has crashed and is now on fire, who is going to know that they have to peel back the carpet or remove a speaker grille?

That vehicle doesn't serve as a truck, why should anyone expect more?

Most billionaires are smart enough to have spokespeople and do their dirty deeds behind boardroom doors where us commoners don't have to hear them. This waste of oxygen has a media environment that amplifies his nonsense which causes his equally useless fanboys to hang on his every word.

In short, I wish he would just shut up and let the actual talent behind his billions do their work.

Crassus would have taken out insurance policies on all the Tesla owners and then set the cars to self destruct.

I don't believe him based on the poor job they do finishing Teslas.

No way this won't result in people driving their cars into lakes, rivers, and oceans, and then drowning.
 
2022-09-29 9:37:33 PM  
Can it serve long enough to play the full track of "I'm on a boat"?

So... he's not nearly as bad as a lot of other billionaires, but you have to think about how shiatty he is sometimes, so it makes you uncomfortable. Because that's what it sounds like.

Humanity is harmed by giving stupid people platforms to influence their stupid followers. If he kept his mouth shut and just let his companies do their thing that would be better for everyone.

It must be mentally exhausting being a Tesla hater.

Everyone who doesn't hate on Tesla is a fanboy. But also you shouldn't buy a Hyundai with more features than the equivalent Tesla at a lower price.

How do you hold so many contradictory thoughts in your head? Or is it a bandwidth problem?

You made a straw man argument bringing other models into a thread about Cybertruck floating.

How many lakes have you driven across? Into?   How many warranty claims?   I doubt Nissan or Hyundai would accept your excuse that you did it because you aren't a boomer.

Ok. So you don't know that electric cars fare really well in deep water, and you also don't know what a straw man is.
