Rumors have it based on some internet sleuths that reservation numbers are huge...who knows though. I put in $100 for it (refundable so who cares).

That’s what I like to hear, fuel those rumors.  Hope Tesla makes some pre order announcement over the weekend.

Bought $352.50 calls for .35, Nov29 exp.

Impressive price and specs but wow is that truck ugly. At least no one will easily break into the vehicle like the Model 3.

I think the Y is going to be one of Tesla’s best selling models.

The only EVs in the $40k rangr are the Kia and Hyundai and those are smaller.

Maybe VW’s Crozz ID can compete.

I think half would be quite optimistic.  This is a free option play for anyone who wants to daydream about buying a Tesla and who can scrape together a $100 callable loan.  The bar was higher with the Model 3, at $1000, so I would expect the conversion rate of actual buyers with a 90% smaller deposit would be even lower than it was with the 3. 
I'm sure Tesla loves it when the media claims they have $10B is "pre-orders".  The reality is no contracts have been signed, no revenue generated, and they're 2 years from production (ignoring Elon time).

I am keeping an open mind, but I need to see range predicts when the truck is being used as a truck.  Even with the max range model, can I load the family in it and a bunch of gear and make it to the mountains and back on one charge, factoring in ambient temps and the changes in elevation?   What if I'm pulling a small toy hauler with a couple quads?  Or maybe most buyers don't care about that.  Too many trucks out there being used as grocery getters and this one might be the biggest offender ever made.

All that said, the calls and the logic behind them were a darn good play.

Been visiting the Tesla stores in Fashion Island and Mission Viejo mall.

I can fit in a Model 3 but no one other than a kid can sit behind me so it's not really a family with older kids type car.

Not sure if the Y will be much better because same chassis as the 3.

By the time this truck is out, I think there will be better options SUV-wise like the Ford E-Mach and a bunch of other crossover SUVs slated for 20-21 release.

I think price point is the key here... anything $40kish should sell well.

Not getting it the truck. It looks like a tank.

Model Y will have more interior room than 3. They managed to fit a 3rd row option on the Y. Just don't expect Model X level of space. 3rd row will be strictly for kids and frenemies.

Yeah... not sure how much more room they can fit in the 2nd row with the same 3 base, especially adding a 3rd row.

Unless some other maker comes out with an electric truck for sub-$50k, I will highly consider this.

Supposedly Musk announced a production redesign to make it 6" shorter and about a 1" more narrow... so it should fit better in most garages.

Not sure I can wait until 21-22. :(

VW Microbus & Cybertruck & BMW i4 are high on my 50k or under EV list.

That i4 will be $50k+ right?

They haven't officially announced the price. But Car&Driver magazine estimate it'd be about 50k.

2021-2022 will be very competitive for EVs. And with Covid-19 suppressing demand, I think BMW would at least have a trim under 50k.

I like the VW ID series too... but not sure when they will actually be released. The Crozz is supposed to be 2020 but I doubt it. The bigger Roomzz is more to my liking but the name is bleh.

Looking at Lordstown also but we'll see if that ever comes out.

I'm keeping an eye on Rivian's offering, Covid-19 has slowed down their release plan but I'm hoping we will know more about their truck and SUV by end of the year. https://insideevs.com/reviews/365670/rivian-pickup-truck-price-range-production/

Start price is $69K though and it looks like the base models will come last.
