Future owner of a dual motor CT as I paid my deposit of 100 USD on Christmas eve, 2019...
I hope to be able to ship it back to Belgium or wherever I will be in 3 years time :)

Nope... Hope to get a Model 3 for my stepfather in the coming months...
As for me I am also considering a Model Y once they will be produced in Germany...
The problem is the CT might not be street legal in Europe once it is in production in the US.
So let's just wait and see :cool:

One thing is for sure, it will certainly look massive on European roads.

In what ways could the Cybertruck not be street legal in Europe?

I don't know yet in what way, but there are so many regulations to be complied with here...
An example, some SUV have tail lights that are positioned to high and had to have extra lights at the rear not above "X" inches from the ground... And the CT's tail lights are placed quite high...
Also all windows have to be with a "E" engravement to show they comply with European regulations...
Same for the turn signal that have to be orange, and not red like in the US...
I am not an expert but I had a friend who imported a car with US specs and he had to spend a fortune changing all the windows and lights to conform to European standards...
Also note that here, the voltage, plugs and outlets for EV are different than in the US...

I never even thought about regulations like that. But that makes a lot of sense.

Do you remember what car your friend imported by any chance?

It was an American SUV but I don't remember which one (he thought he would beat the European price for the car by importing it himself, but he had to change all the lights and the windows plus paying the customs duties and passing to the certification authorities... and it ended up costing much more than a similar car adapted to the European market and bought from the official dealer in Belgium...

Yeah for a newer car/SUV that doesn't make a lot of sense. The only way it would is if it was a vehicle he couldn't get in Europe. But even then it depends on the vehicle.
