Speculation?

Speculation: to hit the price point Tesla will remove all gauges, screens and displays and just provide clip holder for your cell phone. All vehicle functions will be projected on it.

More speculation (from me).

End result will be >$25k (maybe $28-30k) with perhaps a token $25k off books offer for a short time in 2025.
Will have a steering wheel, or if it doesn't it'll be available in limited quantities several years after 2023.

Just based on past history...

Nothing to see here.

I am so sick and tired of all these pointless, useless, anger inducing, BS articles about affordable EV's being released.
300KM real world range for $30K OTD is all I ask for. I don't care if 0-60 is over 10 seconds.

Come on, 0-60mph time is very important to EV owners. They use it at every traffic light.

Unrelated: there are thousands of websites fighting for visitors' traffic. And there are literally thousands of people pretending to be "journalists" or "reporters". There people are desperate to come up with any story, ANYTHING to write about. So they can get paid.

And clickbait is now the norm.

I hate what the internet is becoming.

People are still waiting on releases announced over 4 years ago. No one in Canada has even gotten info on their Cybertruck orders, how will a whole other model be released so soon? Lol

Cybertruck is getting pushed back due to chip shortages and the new plant. That's been the rumor for awhile anyway.

I have no interest in a car without a steering wheel, ever.

I was hoping for an electric vehicle without all the driving nannies/autopilot.

Cybertruck seems to be more about manufacturing using a totally different techniques than chip shortages.

Also worth remembering that the Model 3 was originally not going to have a steering wheel.

0-40mph maybe - but who is going 100km/h from a traffic light?

Every EV driver apparently. It’s the second stat they quote after the range. Usually followed by the speed at which the ev has the capacity to charge at. Followed by some statement about how said vehicle is inferior to the Model 3 SR+

Haha. I am not jealous.
100hp is all I need. I am surrounded by vehicles in the city. I have never push my pedal more than 1/2.

It's supposed to be 25 k$us. That means ~35 k$cdn. My bet is that's for the base model. That being said, there is serious rumors that it could be less than 25 k$us and that the first cars might arrive late 2022 somewhere in the world. That's a bit old news toughts. Based on the recent delays at Tesla, I still consider 2023 to be the date.
Pourquoi pas?
