I hope you can do better on styling. It is by far the ugliest looking truck I've ever seen. Your cars look fine but I'm as a possible buyer in the future but will not put money into a thing that looks like that. Lines and no curves. Also don't think it will put up with Canadian weather that goes down to 30 or 40 below not factoring in windchill yet. A truck would have to get me to the city and back. 700 km turnaround not counting the driving in and around the city. No charging stations between here and the city. What happens when I'm stranded halfway between here and the city. Heating a vehicle in winter it's a problem and sure don't want to ride in discomfort. Worried about the price of electricity when there would be a great demand for it. Where do you think they will be able to create more electricity for our needs?? Oh by the way you still need petroleum products such as grease and oil for moving parts. Don't think this doesn't affect our environment as you would like us to believe otherwise. Finally it earks me that you only see Tesla as your answered to the future. That is called a monopoly. The average person cannot afford your cars nor your trucks. I just don't see your solution as viable yet. Not for the north it's ok for people in southern and warmer regions. Just see so much bias in your videos most of the time. I'm retired and by the time these vehicles are available as used I'll be still driving my gas and diesel vehicles.

I know you have better things to do than go to a Cybertruck enthusiast site and complain about the truck. I, for one, like the way it looks (500,000+ reservations and growing). 804 km of range should mean you can easily make a one-way trip of 350 km. If that weren't enough, Tesla has started working with heat pumps to help on cold range though I don't know how well they'd do at extremely cold temperatures. In addition, pictures of the interior of the Cybertruck show 620 miles of range which is within the realm of the possible. 997km of range (minus the 40% for heating which is the extreme limit) would give you 598 km of range which isn't enough to make your round trip.

Monopolies are not illegal, so you know. Using one monopoly to create another monopoly IS, however. AT&T was the primary phone provider and they would only allow AT&T long distance so THAT monopoly was broken up. An electric vehicle won't fit everyone's needs...yet. It's quite arrogant of you to complain about a company that has made great strides in a short period of time. Tesla went from a vehicle with 240 miles of range to one with over 610 in 9 years. They tripled the range of electric cars in 9 years. That's something.

One last thing here. I'm only typing this out because I type fast and happened to be sitting here bored. I really don't care if the OP reads this or not... it's a little fun to vent at obvious non-fans who go to fan sites to complain about a product they have no intention of owning just to try to make themselves feel better. Here's that one last thing:

The Cybertruck is inexpensive. Like, by a lot. I ordered the tri-motor version which ends up being around $77,000. Now, it's not "cheap crappy car cheap" but lets compare it to my current truck, a Ford F-350 Platinum Crew Cab Long bed. Now, I do pull a 30' enclosed car hauler trailer with it but my family is downsizing so I don't need such a large trailer.

Okay, to be fair, since I'm downsizing, I built an F150 with enough options to get close to the Cybertruck in it's base form (I couldn't get autopilot or anything close though). Price $68,735. If I were being totally fair, I'd price the Cybertruck without autopilot and it comes to $69,900... So, yeah, the Cybertruck is more expensive. You've got me there. It's a whole 1.6% more expensive... $1,165 more expensive, to be exact. So, whatever.

($85,760 for a new F-350 set up like my 2013... So, yeah, that's the last big diesel I'll ever buy)

I like the "I see so much bias in your videos" line. Made me laugh out loud. Ever see a Chevy ad say "Yeah, Ford's better than us, but buy a Silverado anyway". No. No, you don't. Of course videos are going to be biased. Tesla doesn't advertise any other way and that shouldn't "Irk" you. Relax.

I appreciate the time you took to inform me of some of my ignorance but this is one way of me learning the other side of things. The distance part of it appeals to me. Just how long does it take to charge?? I can travel from small town Saskatchewan into British Columbia Vancouver which is 1890km where my son lives. That would be at least a 20 hour trip weather and traffic conditions being optimal. Usually stop 2 hours before Vancouver for a rest overnight.
I didn't mean to bash your truck. Don't believe this truck will be sold in Saskatchewan for quite a few years. People like the style of a certain truck, the power, the ride, the options, loyalty, economy, and service whether that is a Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet, GMC, Toyota, Nissan or whatever. 500,000 doesn't concern me. Media isn't going to bend me but facts will. Just saying I don't like the style my opinion over others. When there is a time to test drive one that will be the time where I will be sold or not.
Again someone who took the time to respond to my comments has my respect! I'll be watching and learning.

(Fast charge and regular charge from home) I can travel from small town Sakatchewan into British Columbia Vancouver which is 1890 km where my son lives. That would be at least a 20 hour trip weather and road conditions being optimal. I usually stop 2 hours before Vancouver for an overnight rest.

No worries. Hope I didn't come across too harsh. It's my hope that eventually, there will be enough infrastructure both here and there to enable us to all be able to chose electric if we wish and have it actually feasible for our needs. Sure, there are some long-haul stuff that may take quite a few years but I have hope. I know that Samsung thinks they have cracked the solid battery problem which would allow for double the storage in the same footprint effectively doubling the range. Further, others think the charge time can be sped up till it takes 5-10 minutes to fully charge a car... maybe double that if it had THIS big of a battery. Now, 1,609 km range would surely help you out. Hopefully for you, that wait won't be long (even if it's not the Tesla Cybertruck... Ford is making an F150 that should also benefit from battery advancements).

But I warn you... the Cybertruck has a way of going through a progression from "It's Ugly", through "maybe it's okay", to "I kind of like it" to "I really like it"... I'll let you know if it goes to "I absolutely love it!"

Oh yeah still love my diesel cars and trucks. Owned a VW Passat 2014 TDI great car too bad VW cheated on emissions. I now own a 2019 Passat. EFI lower fuel mileage and gas but good option for now. My truck is a 2005 2500 GMC sierra duramax diesel. Before that I owned a 1993 (my first brand new truck and sadly probably my last)chevrolet 1500 diesel exceptional truck. Nice ride, great mileage but lacking in towing power. Awesome family truck. The GMC is all truck lots of power not bad fuel mileage but better than the gas counterpart. Facts please! So keep me informed as I do talk.
