    BLECH! Nope still not sold. I get there's a method to the madness between the shape and overall design but it's not pleasing to the eye to me. I'm not against what's under the skin for the drivetrain but the body ain't doing it for me.

    It's probably as polarizing some of the most infamous car designs ever done before it. Chrysler Airflow, Ford's Edsel and Pontiac Aztek come to my mind. One either loves it or hates it, zero in between. Considering how it worked out for the three I mentioned it's a bold move on Elon's part.

    Looks like it would make a nice wheel chock for an 18 wheeler..:eek1:
    Probably see one wedged under a semi as soon as they hit the roads..

    I wouldn't take one as a gift...:surepal:...unless I could sell it for the retail price..

    Deboss garage did a good review of why the Tesla truck will never be practical for the working man, city dwellers, or even the weekend warriors:

    Yeah, they kind of failed that part of the test where you might want to put a load in your truck and take it somewhere more than 12 miles. Not a lot of charging stations around the Nevada desert. Or anywhere else outside the urban centers. I want to know what the range is on the electric big rigs they have out now...and how are they getting those to go so far when the pickup can't get out of the neighborhood?

    The big rig has 2 ranges, one is 300 miles for I think 180k and a 500 miles range for 225k.
    These numbers could be different now but that's what I remember from a year ago aroung launch time.
