    Finally, we've found something uglier than the G500 Cabriolet.

    It is expensive. But if you customize it with solar panels. Gas is free. Or, electricity.

        DeMuro should know better than to publish such a blatantly misleading analysis of the Cybertruck. He made several misleading comparisons such as a base model 2-door Silverado with the Cybertruck. Then he never took into account the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Granted, TCO is different for every owner as mileage driven, gas and electric prices, maintenance costs and depreciation all need to be factored in. But he should have at least used some average numbers. Also, he did not mention anything about reduced maintenance or emissions of an EV so his analysis is terribly flawed to put it nicely.

        Given that DeMuro has 3.5M subscribers between his two channels where he's so focused on cars, there's no excuse for someone in his position to make such a blunder with the Cybertruck comparison. If it was a mistake, then he's either incompetent or terribly sloppy, but if it was intentional then he has other motivations such as keeping sponsors happy, etc. In any case, he lost all credibility with me.

          I like the design just because it looks straight out of a Sci-Fi movie like Blade Runner.

              To me the Cyber is not a truck nor suv.
              It’s actually a hi performance cross over.
              Macan, Audi Q series, BMW X series,Range Rover will most likely be the first adopters no?
              Those are drivers who like high tech and hi performance.

                  The biggest offence of the CyberTruck's styling is how drastically it ignores the unified styling of the rest of Tesla's lineup.

                  The biggest technical fallacy is their focus on 0-60 times and unnecessary ruggedness. I would rather a vehicle that retain 70-80% of it's maximum range while towing, rather than one that improves my experience for the 2% of my trip when I am accelerating.

                  I, and everyone else on the planet, don't need a bulletproof multi-ton ugly track toy, we want a competively priced and capable vehicle capable of doing the work we need to get done.

                    It translates into success when you factor in long term maintenance and fuel costs.

                        tesla does make great cars, but why is no youtuber talking about the bad efficiency of all ev's? they all just try to sell the idea of the future while economic gasoline cars are actually the better choice right now, i'll get an ev when it cost less to buy and run.

                            everyone has a preference, just like some people would prefer buying the cybertruck which is more expensive to get and cost more to run than gas cars. imo that makes no logical sense but let them buy into it idgaf.

                          I like you man, what were you thinking on this video. I own a 17 Silverado-46k. $60 a week in gas. I don’t tow anything. So it’s safe to say that I will save a lot of money owning the CT. You are concentrating on towing and pricing. How about concentrate on, it’s electric! Long term cost to own, safety, innovation, thinking outside the box. I’m am one of the 250k person that ordered one. Can’t wait to see your real review on the cyber truck.

                            The Cybertruck is stainless steel, whereas old-style trucks start rusting right away. This is a huge deal for coastal communities where salt on the roads literally eat non-stainless metals.

                            Old-style trucks may have a cheaper price tag, but after rust sets in and autopilot is standard, no other truck comes close to the value proposition of Tesla.

                            Innovate or die.

                                I can see doug's point of view as far as value goes but think of the gas savings of these trucks. light and heavy duty trucks can have terrible MPG and even diesel costs alot these days. I don't think the range will be lowered as much as in the model X because tesla really is expecting people to tow and haul in the cyber truck. time will tell.

                                While i don't think it's ugly it is a very simple design and tesla is trying to cut production costs as best they can to stay in business. we can at least agree if this is tesla's first truck ever the next model has alot of room to improve stylistically. and elon musk even said if people don't buy the cyber truck we(tesla) will make a model with more conventional truck styling. maybe by then tesla will have more resources and it will be no problem.

                                          I think we need to stop pretending that anybody is going to by the Cybertruck for it's towing or "worksite" purposes.

                                              My midsize gas pickup gets 28 mpg on the road and has a 600 mile range, the longest of any vehicle I’ve owned by far. I expect gasoline will not become scarce in my remaining lifetime. Let others be the pioneers.

                                                  Did the designer work on the Delorean? Pickups have a conventional look because it works well for its intended purpose.

This is a BIGGER PROBLEM FOR RIVIAN and their delivery vans for Amazon assuming their battery tech is not as good as Tesla.

                                                              TBH, the Ford Flex is the ugliest vehicle ever on 4 wheels, and there’s really no second place. Also, Cybertruck buyers can’t be compared to typical pickup truck buyers. Tesla doesn’t market to blue collar buyers, or people who agonize over specs. It might be more useful to compare it to the Chevy El Camino, which was also a pickup truck for people who wouldn’t normally buy a pickup truck. Software engineers in the Silicon Valley who dream of having fun outdoors, when they’re not chained to their cubicles, will buy this car.

                                                                If everyone wants to brag on social media that they reserved a Cybertruck, whether they can ultimately afford to make the purchase or not, it proves that people love the design.

IMO, forget the GM gimmick tailgate, the ultimate truck would be a mix of the Ram bedside storage, the GM bumper steps, the Ford cargo gate and the Tesla telescoping ramp. please, somebody, MAKE IT!

Knowing Elon, it’s very possible he’s trolling us and wants to build hype around the “Tesla Truck”. Remember, bad press is still good press. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up saying this is the truck’s first sketch and the final design will have a more Tesla-y design language.

PLENTY of people will buy this truck for the same reason they buy any vehicle. IT'S THE ONE THAT THEY WANT TO HAVE IN THE GARAGE. for any reason they may have.

You keep going on about pricing, but you don't think beyond the sticker price. Open up a spreadsheet and I think you'll find it's actually much cheaper than an F150. And you're completely missing a lot of the other points as well, but you keep going on about money and it's just dumb.
