This design is just stupid... Remember the Pontiac Aztek... What is Amazing is that there are over 10k pre-orders for this awful looking truck.

Isn't the number like 200,000?

I doubt it but because they lowered the deposit to only $100 and its refundable I am sure numbers will be exaggerated. If they put a $1000 deposit or something more realistic I think we might be able to see a more accurate number.

Does not look attractive or convenient to use, of course this is not surprising considering the dashboard design in Model 3.

Folks are changing there tune quickly the more they learn.

That sounds awesome. I love the features. I just wish it were a little less ugly. Just a little. lol.

This side of it has a flux capacitor, they can have it. This thing looks like they just got some 1st grader to draw it and just went with it.

Could this be the 2021 Edsel . . .

Looks "bad" (in a cool way), just not practical for an everyday functional work truck.

I love my gas powered vehicles, but electric seems to be the future. The cybertruck might be ugly, but the specs, functionality, and stainless steel are awesome. I'm in the rust-belt and will be looking to replace my Silverado around the time this comes out. I tow a 7000 travel trailer. I have a pre-order in for the AWD model, just to hold a spot. It is a strong contender for my next truck.

somewhere, over the raiinbow

Even owners of the Model S/X had a lot of issues getting replacement body parts. So while Tesla can crank out more body parts, it's highly likely any damage will sit for a while.

Speaking of damage, I would like to see the crash testing for it.

Teslas have become pretty common down here in S. Florida. If nothing else, I can see this being popular down here just because its a head turner.
The design is definitely a head turner (would love to drive one given its power specs).

A warmer climate such as FL would be a great place to to have an all electric vehicle where you can actually get its rated battery capacity (at least without A/C running). In a New England winter the useful battery capacity drops dramatically (as noted in the article below). Also, before signing on the dotted line to take delivery be sure to call your insurance carrier as you may find the annual insurance premiums shocking vs your regular vehicle (see link below where Tesla has tried in CA to begin its own insurance program to mitigate the costs).

Temperatures.
"At 95 degrees, range dropped 4% without use of air conditioning, and fell by 17% when the cabin was cooled, the study found. For example, AAA's testers determined that the Tesla's range when fully charged at 75 degrees was 239 miles, but it fell 91 miles, or 38%, at 20 degrees. . . Feb 7, 2019"

Insurance.

Only because Elon reduced the deposit from $2500>$2000>1000>$100. It's only $100 bucks now. The Model 3 had over 300,000 preorders.
Franz should be fired. The steel balls to side glass didn't help the cause. Stock dropped 6.14% after this news.

Meanwhile Rivian preorders actually increased after this debacle.

This is all true !!!! HVAC just kills the range on these cars. Elon just announced a solar tonneau option for the p/u that'll give 13 more miles. ( allegedly).

I thought the Rivian was ugly until I saw this abomination. Now it's looking pretty good.
