Jay Leno test drove the CyberTruck through one of Elon's tunnels:

An odd story:

The Cybertruck's main competitor - Rivian - wants to buy the vacant South Coast Cinema's theater in Laguna Beach, current price $12,000,000 - renovate the historic building, and turn it into a showroom/working theater.

Pretty bold for a company who has sold zero vehicles. Their VC money must be sloshing around with nowhere to go.

I'd love to see Rivian be successful. Their truck and SUV concepts are amazing and there's always demand for trucks. The price tag is hefty, but the first vehicles should qualify for the federal tax credit. They also have a good sized presence in Irvine (a quick search on their careers site shows nearly 200 open jobs in Irvine).

Assuming that the technology, drive quality, and supercharger network can match Tesla, where they can differentiate is customer service and build quality. If they can nail that from the outset they're a clear competitor.

I think Rivian has good chance to be successful in the long run mainly because they are well funded. (Now by both Ford and Amazon) EV space is full of startups. And startups mainly die when they run out of money or when talents get poached.

That said, I don’t think the Rivian R1T and R1S would even be competitive with Tesla cybertruck simply because the huge difference in starting price.

R1T starts at 69k, R1S at 73k, and CyberTruck starts at 40k.

The $7500 federal tax credit will help cheaper EVs like VW’s ID compete with Tesla, but probably won’t move the needle much at Rivian’s price range.

Rivian also has less range and only half the payload capacity compared to the Cybertruck.

Rivian’s appeal will be limited. I think most car buyers are value conscious. Tesla is just the better value buy.

Yeah... not sure why all these EV trucks are pricing themselves above the CT.

At least the Lordstown is in the $50k and supposedly Fisker is going to come out with a truck... but we will see.

Meanwhile, Tesla continues to get first to market and then competes on price too.

Also, supposedly a smaller CyberTruck is in the plans since the first one couldn't get a size reduction.

Owners couldn't connect to their cars but they were not locked out. The unlocking is through Bluetooth so the network outage didn't affect that.

A good look at a likely production model - From Youtube



My money is still on Rivian or Ford's Lightning to conquer the truck market. We'll see....

Guarantee in Irvine we'll see 3x more Cybertrucks vs. Rivians and Fords.  If Tesla can hold the $39.9k starting price for 250mi range, I bet they'll sell a bunch.  Seems like they won't be able to though.

I want to love this truck but Elon is making it harder. That mega windshield wiper is an eyesore.

The wiper will hopefully be tucked deeper into the window well and not be visible. Reminds me of an early 2000's MBZ windshield wiper design. Theirs came up from the bottom, not out from the side. I like "weird cars" and wish more manufacturers would take more chances with design. The CT will probably more of a head turner than a high volume selling vehicle. We'll see.
