Cyberwhat?


Recommended Posts

I dunno Marc. No matter which angle I look at it from, it's just not doing it for me.

I get it from the point of view of features, but it just needs to look a little better than my daily drive (below)

My philosophy on releasing a new concept to the public,  -make it sexy  -even if the production model is not exactly the same.

For example:-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsX5kUCexjk

(This was supposed to have been the next generation bikes from the company I used to work for)

 

No offense intended, just my opinion.

No offence taken! I once loved the Dodge Nitro, and also an owner of Pugs (the dogs, not the cars). I've always loved the styling of the MB G-wagen too. My father says I like ugly things ... so perhaps the CT is right up my alley! ­čÖé┬á

Apparently there is a smaller version of the Cyber Truck in the works too. Hating aside, I think they will be big sellers honestly (as far as EV utility vehicles go).

OK!   Now I get you. 

My orientation is the other way. For example, I prefer an Alfa 4C over a Ferrari,, a Muira/Urraco over a Countach, and also loved the curves of the ill-fated Jag XJ13.

At the end of the day you are correct. Electric utility, SUV, etc, vehicles do need to commence having presence on our roads. (the styling aspect will take care of itself).

My biggest question is about roadside charging. Logistically, if at some time in the future you have EV's parked at an Electric service station, how many charging bays can be accommodated simultaneously (@ 240Vac/32A), and how long can each vehicle remain there to fully charge their batteries?  In other words, what will the future electrical supply requirements look like? Grid or PV? etc..

Perhaps that question is better placed in another section of the forum. Feel free to do so.

This is something that worries me as a new EV owners too. On the Tesla app you can see the superchargers and in realtime, see how many bays are free. I have been watching out of curiosity, and there's rarely a time when all (average) 6 bays are free except for the middle of the night. Home charging is no issue, but with a typical roadtrip (MEL > SYD, MEL > ADL) requiring two en-route charges, who is to say that just 6-bays is going to cut it.

Unless we see the bigger fuel companies (doubt it) invest in new charging/service stations with big banks of chargers and the attraction of money-making add-ons, hot desks, cafes, fast-food etc.

I'm not sure how it is going to pass crash testing with panels made from rolled steel that dont crumple

I've seen the question asked many times but not answered yet! Somehow, they will find a way - that's what Musk does.
