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

@Reisender - Whichever it is, it will all be good news for me. Although we are thinking of getting a truck camper for F150 or, if Lance do one for Cybertruck. We experience so many stops and parking limitations with a trailer. As for the semis, my son-in-law is planning to go into trucking with a goal of buying (several) Tesla semis.

Interesting! This could solve Semis range issue. Think of all that space in the trailer cargo surface. Australian scientists to power Tesla on 15,000-km trip with printed solar panels

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

Thanks @Van! There's my Cybertruck and like Homer Simpson drooling... um... Cybertruck. Market not so impressed. Tesla shares promptly dropped 1.62%.. Oh well, there is always next year and I accept Elon Musk's apology for the delay. I zoomed in on it Sam. They wrote your name on the left quarter panel. I’m sure they’ll be sending a delivery notice soon. :). In other news. Just saw a pic online of one of the newest Superchargers that went in up here. Looks like there are two trailer spots. One on either end. Maybe max 22 to 24 trailer though. Meh. It would work for our combo which is 18 feet They need more pull thrus. From you lips to angel's ears, lol. @Van photo is the Cybertruck's final design model (without the door handle).

And the supercharges are still not pull-throughs.:S So back to thinking of getting a truck camper.

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

My buddy just replaced his Prius battery the year before last. $5,500 dollars. Only Toyota would touch the thing so no aftermarket option. His girlfriend had the same problem and the same cost. BTW not even close to 200,000 miles. BTW, BTW Tusk said he would have battery prices down to 50 to 55 cents a KWH. How did that work out for you buddy? How is this for a segue? He talks of Prius issues with batteries. Then all of a sudden a right turn to blame "Tusk" for it. Excuse me but your slip (do they still use them when they meant to show their thongs) is showing.:B Hahahahaha......BOOM!!!! Don't you love those idiots? I bet his Tesla would have still fetched a good price even if it's battery is shot. But what do I know about the fools and their money? Reminded me of those similar brain-dead down South who burned all their Nike's because of the brand's association with Kaepernick with his kneeling protest. But here's a better story. A woman, newly widowed, put out an ad to dispose off her husband's Land Rover, disclosing it's need a $4,000 gear repairs, in exchange for a no-cash out decent Japanese entry level car or a sub-compact. Turns out the Land Rover still have some really collector's (I suspect, a Defender) value. The good gentlemen had it repaired and sold it. Then he went back to the widow to split his profit with her. I hope this Tesla burning dude is not your role model.:B BOOM!

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

"If your groceries cost more blame your oil producers for creating fake news about oil shortage to justify raising fuel prices." The price of oil going up is almost entirely due to politics. If you doubt that look at how much fuel costs in California vs the rest of the country and try to come up with a different explanation. However, we are not supposed to get political here so that is all that I am going to say on the subject. Yeah, it's not political, it's ideological. CA, just like what they did to cigarettes, taxing it to death and banning all smoking in public places, is cleaning up the air and thus credited with reducing heart attack, cancer death and asthma sufferings on its citizens. It will be prohibiting sale of ICE cars in 2030 or 2035 thereabouts. LA has been successful in cleaning up the air -- that the joke, Los Angelenos don't trust the air they don't see, is no longer true. Well, unlike other states where people are freezing to death with their lax regulations on power companies and gas suppliers. To each his own.

RE: Reservations at federal parks

As seniors and campers, seems we have to give up everything we deserve and give it to those cheaters that don't. Progress!! Or two class of campers where those of us who are not well-connected are relegated to least desirable sites tucked somewhere in the most inaccessible area of the park.

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

Hey Van, what does any of this have to do with the Semi? Should I paste in pictures of the Warren, OH battery plant? Maybe pictures of the Cadillac Lyriq? Maybe a F150 Lightning that was spotted in a public parking lot? Maybe the Hummer EV Pickup and SUV? Maybe we should paste pictures of the Kia EV6, Hyundai IONIQ 5? None of them have anything to do with a semi either! @Van - don't listen to him. I'm interested in what you are posting. Besides, this is the only remaining EV topic on this forum.

RE: Reservations at federal parks

Priority for federal park reservation system is that they are unable to solve the problem of insiders who block the choicest campsites for their friends. I was booking a good campsite in the Village at Yosemite NP seconds after it's opening for the next calendar cycle. And lo and behold, by a stroke of incredible miracle, it's all already booked solid. This toasts my taco. They should leave at least 20% for first come first served to give the rest of us a chance because bots have locked us out of the parks. Bots and the insiders. Went to a campground with 4 first-come-first-serve campsites. I was there at 7am to be able to corral it. When I went to the counter, the lady said it's all booked. No protestations from me that there is no one there yet would make her relent. It was a concession run very popular USFS campgrounds.. Wrote USFS to protest. Did not even got a response of at least acknowledging the receipt of my e-mail.

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

In case you need to see what it looks like for electric pickups to be shipped to dealers. InsideEVs Hummer EV Pickup Shipment That truck is a Brute. Probably going to be awhile before we get one up here for a test drive but count me in when it gets here. Good looking vehicle too and I think it will be even better looking in person. 1000 hp. Holy carp. Can’t find a website which indicates what colours will be or are available. Cheers all. Looks to me to be a pick up cab placed on top of a barge,;) Must be because of the bulky battery to get that kind of range.

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

The $69,900 Cybertruck was shown to have a 500+ mile range , 14,000 lb tow rating and 3,500 lb payload.Which Cybertruck was this? Didn't know they were in production yet. Or was this the "blue sky" model? :) I don't know the "blue sky" model but this is the price range of tri-motor Cybertruck. Of course, Cybertruck will have a quad-motor model and the speculation is that it may kill the tri and the single motor lines as both is pushed way out into the production schedule.

RE: stroke of genius???

Brilliant! I'm way ahead in thinking. Would never even leave the house with thermostat set at 70. lol And as a bonus, I will reminisce about my best camping ever -- winter in Yosemite and waking up with 2 feet of snow right out my RV's door and off roading to go to the wonderful vista points and having fun in a winter wonderland.

Too bad for Pepsi.Too bad for all of us still breathing the diesel fumes. And lead, right? Explains the low educational attainment, they say correlated to diminished IQ down southern states.:E The company I used to worked had to redesign machine controls to show graphics or pictures similar to the McD cashier's register.:p

The fees for use of credit card is still cheaper than hiring a full time employee just to process and deposit checks and cash that call for a trip to the bank for the latter.

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

This will be an interesting year, seeing what Sam and Van i. No bigly so no need to shed a tear for me. I hedged my bets. I also ordered F150 Lightning and bought Ford stocks. So don't let this stop you from heckling -- after waiting for @Van's latest post.:B

Prototype means it's not on production yet. Had he said, alpha or beta models, this would mean this are now the test vehicle being readied for production. Analysts seen through Elon looky here new shinny object diversionary tactic of humanoid robot and Tesla stock price is being dumped and now down 8%.
