I'm curious to see how many people plan on using their Cybertrucks as daily drivers.

I won't be at first, I'd need to get used to driving an EV first, but a friend of mine is willing to trade in is 2018 Silverado to help pay for his Cybertruck.

What is your plan with the Cybertruck? Are you using your Cybertruck as a daily driver and if so are you going to trade in your current vehicle in the process?

The Cybertruck will be my daily driver, replacing a Honda Odyssey. It will be great to not have to buy gas for driving around, and pretty much everything about a Cybertruck is a big upgrade from my Honda. I will probably sell the Honda privately.

How do trade ins work with Tesla? Because there's no dealer...how do you trade in a car?

Here's the trade-in info on the Tesla website.

It seems that they pick up your trade-in when they drop off your Tesla.

TRADE-INS

What kind of vehicles does Tesla accept for trade-in?
Tesla accepts cars, trucks, vans and SUVs for trade-in towards the purchase of a new or used Tesla. Use the Tesla trade-in calculator to obtain a quote on your current vehicle.

How does Tesla determine the price of my vehicle?
All Tesla trade values are generated out of a standard calculation based on vehicle configuration, history, mileage and age. The resulting value is based on market data and internal Tesla product knowledge. Non-Tesla trade-in values are based solely on Kelley Blue Book (KBB) good condition trade values (pending vehicle history verification).

How does the trade-in process work?
To get a trade-in value before ordering your new or used Tesla, go to the Tesla trade-in calculator to submit your current vehicle information. After you place an order on a new or used Tesla, you may submit trade-in details in your Tesla Account.

Can I trade in my vehicle even though I am still making payments?
Yes. You can trade in your vehicle if you are still making finance payments. Tesla will calculate and compare the payoff amount, applicable early termination penalty and any equity (positive or negative) that will be added to your Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement. You will not need to pay off your lease or loan in full prior to trading in your current vehicle. There may be restrictions on accepted leased trade-ins depending on the lessor.

Can I trade in more than one vehicle towards my new Tesla purchase?
Tesla cannot accept more than one trade-in vehicle towards your new or used vehicle purchase. You can apply the equity of one trade-in towards the purchase contract.

Can I apply the value of my trade-in vehicle to the total purchase of my Tesla?
You can apply any applicable positive equity towards the purchase of your new or used Tesla. If you have negative equity, it must be paid either at delivery or rolled into your purchase agreement (pending credit approval).

How long are trade-in values valid?
Trade-in values on all vehicles are valid for 30 days or 1,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Does Tesla accept salvaged title or non-drivable vehicles?
No. All trade-ins are expected to be in drivable condition and all values are subject to change if the vehicle has any major mechanical or cosmetic concerns.

Will Tesla accept a trade-in without a vehicle title?
You must have a vehicle title for the car you wish to trade in if you own the vehicle outright, or if you are making finance payments in KY, MD, MI, MN, MO, MT, NY, OK or WY.

When can a vehicle be traded in?
All trade-ins must be dropped-off at your scheduled delivery appointment. Tesla cannot accept trade-ins prior to or post-delivery.

What happens to my trade-in if I decide to return my Tesla?
All trade-ins are final. If you decide to take advantage of Tesla's seven day return policy, you will receive a check for the full equity of your trade-in vehicle in addition to a refund for your new car. If you had negative equity on your trade, you may need to pay an additional amount.

How do aftermarket vehicle modifications affect trade-in valuations?
Aftermarket vehicle modifications typically have a negative effect on trade-in valuations. The car you wish to trade in should ideally be in ‘stock’ or original state.

I am definitely planning to use the CT as my daily driver. I'll be selling my 2015 S85D. I help to maintain a tree farm and the CT (and possibly the CyberQuad as well) will be a welcome addition to my "toolbox".

CT will be my daily driver. Planning on giving my Honda Ridgeline to my son who'll be 16 when the CT comes out... Unless it's delayed too much. If that happens I may have to buy something else to tide me over until I get my CT and then trade that in to Tesla.

Nice! I actually wonder what the CT will do to sales of other Tesla models, after all, some automakers are getting rid of sedans!

CT will definitely be my new daily driver. Trading in my Ford Explorer XLT.
Good choice. Apparently Ford is coming out with an all-electric Ford F-150, do you see yourself possibly going that route in the future?

CT will be my daily driver. 500+ mile range. Self driving! No door dings. Replacing my Cadillac Escalade.
Hopefully you don't leave us when Cadillac reveals the electric Escalade :D

I fear the current virus situation might impact us here, so we might have to plan for a longer delay.

Getting the CT for my wife and kids, just paid off her 16' town&country. I've had my 14' Smart ED for over two years and love it, but maybe we'll get His & Hers CT's...

It will be my standard car; my wife will keep the Model 3. We'll take the Cybertruck on outings. We won't trade in anything -- although trading in a car with Tesla, at least 2 years ago when I got the Model 3, was a snap and good value (pretty much exactly the KBB value).

Last year I traded in my 2500 ram for my model 3 as I got a new job that required me to drive a lot of miles. Saved me about 400 a month in diesel bills. I bought my CT because i miss having a truck and I have two horses and would like to replace my older F-350. The fact that it cal haul 14k pounds is amazing but I am concerned about the mileage drop. I really only need like 200 miles carrying a horse trailer and there is a lot of unknowns that aren’t mentioned. Like how much the truck will weight which can be good for stopping a heavy load. If it’s to lights then it will move around a lot and will have sway. If you trade in or want an ideal how much you will get take it to a carmax Tesla will honor what car max says it’s worth on a trade in.

Towing with the Cybertruck is one of the things I'm most interested in seeing because there usually is a significant range drop, just like any other vehicle. the closest we'll get right now are videos like this one, which is an interesting watch.

This will be my daily driver; no trade-in as I'm on a lease that will end in Feb 2022. If my CT isn't ready for delivery at that time I'll by a cheap ICE vehicle and drive that until it is. The CT reminds me a lot of my 2012 Honda Ridgeline in that its not trying to "Fit-In" by looking like every other truck; but is just an honest and original design. I was so disappointed by the current Ridgeline as Honda tried to make it look like what everyone thinks a truck should look like (BORING!). I was so excited when CT was revealed because Tesla didn't go with the "Traditional" look. Funny cause until the CT came out I hadn't really considered an EV and was a bit of a Tesla naysayer. Since then I've been doing a lot of research and have really changed my mind about EVs in general and Tesla in particular...?
