RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

You would think that if they're so great trucking companies would be fighting to get them. Why is a tax credit needed? The only thing that comes from tax credits in situations like this is the taxpayer / consumer gets the shaft.So increased fuel taxes we get the shaft. And trucking subsidies we get the shaft. No way to win here at all. Good luck on your lotto ticket tomorrow. And how much have we spend guarding and patrolling the Gulf and oil shipping lanes. Not to mention American lives lost since.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I just hope that the Cybertruck is betting suited for towing than the electric trucks currently on the market. I was excited about getting an electric truck for my business until I started seeing tow test results. It’s still a half ton. My guess is it like other EV’s will be well suited to smaller lower profile trailers. Larger heavier units with big profiles will be better suited to diesel tow vehicles. We are members of a few electric vehicle towing groups on social media. Those pulling lower profile units are actually pretty happy with their tow experience. But those towing taller bigger units are generally disappointed when doing longer road trips. Right tool for the right job. Appreciate this info. Wifey is not going back small after experiencing my big, lol. I'm actually waiting for a review from someone who put a Lance 650 type truck camper on F150 Lightning. And hopefully tested it on chilly weather. Maybe, he'll get a better range.

I was excited about getting an electric truck for my business until I started seeing tow test results. Agree! 2/3 drop in range when towing and 33% lower range just because temperature dropped to 40F --- and seeing that dealer's price of $111,540 for a Lariat (extended range) is a deal breaker. Specially that I meant it to pull my RV trailer or putting in a truck camper.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

December is just around the corner. Any bets? Odds should be good for the naysayers specially with Elon's lost credibility (and current distraction as Chief Tweet and Putin and Xi messenger, lol). Triggered are we? LOL. Lost credibility? Just read he's sheet canning half of the Twitter workforce. Thats awesome. I am triggered! Who won't? Because it's neither here or there except the commonality with lots of people who find it "awesome" that Americans are losing jobs, the country (and the world) into high inflation and us and even most advanced countries may have a recession. It's also apparent and I noticed that you've not made a position on the fact that Tesla or Elon said that commercial deliveries of semi will start December.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Sorry, no photo. I won't pull my camera phone on that scary zig zag. Anyway, saw a Tesla semi obviously pulling a cargo up at the I-80 Sparks-Reno-Truckee corridor. Thinking out loud, if this is still in test, this is the best way to do it with the brutal Donner Summit climb and the chilly Tahoe weather. I also noticed some a large graffiti already on the sides. Must be some EV haters which my daughter and son-in-law often encounter along these roadways while driving their Teslas.

Maybe your grand kids, grand kids will get to drive your Cybertruck you have on order. :B They will sure make money on their new Robotaxie when they get it!! Well that's not good: Tusk says Tesla is worth zero. Maybe the dude finally told the truth for once? Yes, givel that investing advice to someone who already earned the money from Tesla stock trade. And yes, I have written my will on who will get the Cybertruck, the F150 Lightning...:p

Look in the owner's manual for specifications.... not twitter This goes for everything not just Tesla. twitter is not a reliable source of information. Sorry to burst the bubble. :( But... but... that's too much reading.:? Can't they have it on comic book format? Twitter is just 280 characters. And with YouTube, I just need to watch!:B

We also say in business world, those who look at crystal balls end up eating glasses ROFLMAO........prescription?, sun?, drinking? looking? If you're going to use a common phrase at least get it correct. What your looking for is shattered glass. Good catch. No wonder I got a C on my Quotes 101.:D Thanks for saving my life. Whew!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Turtle has been wrong so often and now desperate to be right about something. In the mean time maybe a screen shot of the official specs at anything other than 300 and 500 miles should be found and posted. Customer reviews should be out soon after the first hundred deliveries. I prefer to wait for actual reality. I rather not speculate too despite my long career in corporate planning and forecasting. We also say in business world, those who look at crystal balls end up eating glasses -- or in Turtle's case, crows.;)

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I myself is watching a Tesla semi conversion into Type A rv.:p:R Is it going to be a very forceful, demanding RV that likes to lead and doesn't take no for an answer? Or did you mean Class A? I'd think a conversion would be more like a Class C, super C to be specific, but I'm not in the top 2% of intelligence , so what do I know... I would have to profusely apologize to you about my lack of knowledge of RVs.:o In fact, the only class or types of RVs I know are trailers (I just started 3 years ago and had 2 where I totaled the 1st one). And now I'm looking at truck campers for either my Cybertruck or F150 Lightning. And maybe I'll look again once there is a company that will convert Tesla semi into RV (I don't know what type or class to call it, sorry). I hope you are now jumping in joy and celebration after demonstrating your superiority in knowledge in one subject matter that other ordinary people are deficient.:R

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Grit, the OP has consistently added on topic relevant factual information. Try it sometime. Why is an a electric semi relevant to an RV forum? Rivian? Yep. Ford Lightning? Yep. Cyber truck? Mmmmmmm, not really. It's not even made yet...but ok I guess wishing is ok. I guess we only have 3 more months to wait for the Semi according to you, 8.1 and Tusk. Right on. Can't wait. :B:B:B No moving the goal post now. You're not buying an electric semi to pull your popup camper? I myself is watching a Tesla semi conversion into Type A rv.:p:R

RE: Our BC, Vancouver island & sunshine coast tour. Lotsa Pics

Glad you enjoyed it Sam. I think an interesting trip for an American would be to start at the ferry in Port Angeles Washington and go straight to Victoria. From there work your way up and around the island. Then when you are done with the island head for Comox and take the Ferry to Powell River. Work your way down the Sunshine Coast and decide from there which route you want to take from there. Happy travels Sam. Thanks for the bonus of this tip. Indeed, when we did the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria BC, I was surveying the possibility of taking with RV with us. We simply decided to camp out at Olympic NP and do a day trip. The trans-Canada, when (not if, as you noticed) will go from West to East. Again, I appreciate the information and the inspiration of your photos and narrative on this post.

RE: Our BC, Vancouver island & sunshine coast tour. Lotsa Pics

Wow, wonderful pictures and inspiring narratives. You should blog your trips, lol. You inspire me to do trans-Canada someday instead of just specifically Banff. You also reinforce my directional decision to go for truck camper on my Cybertruck or F!50 Lightning for those small villages, park and dine and limited parking trailheads. Sad even just to hear that somebody will be homebound for the winter. Except for holidays and the family get together, we might do snowboarding down south. You brought cheers (am smiling reading these) indeed with this post. To think, I almost miss this as I'm not much around over the months (or a year).

It's a short drive for me to Tesla's Sparks factory. I can check it out, lol.:W Yes, but will you have the right adapter to charge your vehicle? I don't need one. I am charging via Starling beaming it me down.:B Wait, that's Australia, not Canada.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

But based on Musk’s announcement, Tesla is also expected to finally deliver Tesla Semi to customers who have placed orders up to five years ago. Tesla has been taking reservations with deposits for up to $20,000 per truck. The company is believed to have thousands of reservations for the electric truck with several large companies having big orders, including Walmart and PepsiCo. While the automaker has production capacity deployed in Nevada, it is fairly low volume. Tesla is expected to bring the vehicle to volume production at Gigafactory Texas next year. The company has never announced a planned production capacity, but it is expected to be in the tens of thousands of trucks per year. Electrek It's a short drive for me to Tesla's Sparks factory. I can check it out, lol.:W

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

What the ....? Why do you even have to lie and distort to give excuses to these grossly incompetent and criminally negligent Texas leaders and electric company? Those who died froze to death inside their homes for lack of power for heating. Re-read you post then, if you mention your experience of being inconvenienced of a canceled game in the same breath of topic of people freezing to death, it is implied. No argument that TX utility companies weren't prepared for a record cold spell of that magnitude and geographical breadth. But think about what you're implying. First, you're implying intent to harm...ya pretty sure that wasn't the case. Second, I can think of any number of natural disasters or weather extremes that kill people who are either not prepared or in the wrong place at the wrong time. This was no different. Could those folks have been spared if the power didn't go out? Sure. By the same token, everyone killed in a tornado could be spared if the govt builds a huge tornado shelter in every trailer park. But wait, at some point for that to work, also requires everyone to GO to the shelter. Same thing here, bud. I understand that your view (and others) differs from mine and that general mindset that "nothing is MY fault" and "the Govt's responsibility is to take care of ME" is hard to overcome when you've literally become dependent on everything but yourself. Another looks here? First dismissing, now 246 deaths, to the inconvenience of your own canceled game. And now your diverting it to the false equivalence of tornado deaths. Dude, these utilities and their incompetent and thoughtless leaders in Texas would just have leaned harder on them since decades earlier state's lack of preparedness for such storms in a report from U.S. federal regulators and Texas own Electric Reliability Council. Thus preventable. What wrong with you?:h Nobody in California has the right to claim that someone else's utility company is poorly run. Fix your own then show us how it is done. I'm not in California but I'll play. As far as I know, unlike Texas, there was no 246 deaths in California caused by gross negligence of both the state leadership and the utility company. Another of this false equivalency and whataboutthism. Next!:S

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

@Yosemite, Why would I compare missing a game to a death? Oh maybe as evidence that it wasn’t “that” bad. But you are sensationalizing it. To the greatest extent. Do you not think out of almost 30million people in that state that there are less than 200 people who either A. Don’t have the sense to come in out of the cold (insane, homeless etc) or B. Don’t have an extenuating circumstance that lead to some cold weather killing them. (Likely pretty much the same as A? What the ....? Why do you even have to lie and distort to give excuses to these grossly incompetent and criminally negligent Texas leaders and electric company? Those who died froze to death inside their homes for lack of power for heating. Re-read you post then, if you mention your experience of being inconvenienced of a canceled game in the same breath of topic of people freezing to death, it is implied.
