Someone once said if you are not pushing the status quo you are not innovating.
Innovation can come in many different variations and in the case of the Cybertruck there is no rival.
Yes it is different. Yes it is polarising and Yes it is on the cutting edge of what most people consider Strange and unusual , but…………..while it has unique styling it more than makes up for it in what it offers the buyer.
A large cabin with 6 seats, up to 3 motors and a distance of over 800kms (500+mi) and that is just to start. Large lighting systems for good visuals out in deserts, forests or driving at night, A large tray (Vault) with hidden storage, tied down adaptibility, ability to charge and use different powered tools and vehicles and a tray that folds down with a hidden ramp.
I am not a truck guy but I am sure there is not many trucks that can say they have that many features.
One of the most astounding features of the Cybertruck is the body work. A big shift away from how standard trucks are built and a homage back to John Delorian with a stainless steel body that is like an exoskeleton. This design has many benefits both in manufacturing and maintenance. An unusual selection for an exterior but a solid choice in more than one way.
Having spent many hours watching review after review of the Cybertruck and hearing all the opinions of people who saw or rode in it, I have come to a couple of conclusions.
This is not the truck for the masses. It will appeal to a number of people and it will grow on others. I am yet to decide what direction I am leaning as I need to see it up close and personal.
Like all cars that we buy it is usually with emotion. We buy with a passion for the thing of our desires that fits our budget. And if our budget is not an issue then we buy what we love.
I beleive Tesla has delivered a formidable vehicle with amazing specifications that will without equal be able to take on anything that the best gas trucks in the world could do and do it even better. And this should be the story that we are all talking about.
Congratulations Tesla for being brave, for challenging the Status Quo and for offering a Truck that will blow your mind.
