Beauty or Beast, what say ye ?

I don't get the fastback; it sure limits what you can haul.

Rather than a truck, I'd say it's a two-seater with a giant trunk. So more like "white elephant" for me.

Not very attractive to my eye.
But, since 90% of trucks are driven empty, why not have it streamlined.
I drew up something years ago that was a camper shell that pivoted at the front.
Down was for aero, up was for cargo.

Check out this custom-built Tesla truck!

The looks are very - unique. As long as it's reliable, powerful, good range, and bonus if fast and handles well - who really cares what it looks like.  Depending on price and charge time - I'm interested.

I am super excited for electric trucks, and years ago I had been hoping I would be able to buy one by summer 2020. One of my good friends has had a Tesla Model S for 3 years, and it is an amazing vehicle. Quite fun to drive.

I had been eagerly awaiting the reveal of the cybertruck, and even watched the live unveil with my wife. We were pretty disappointed, in my opinion it is quite ugly. I prefer the looks and utility of the Rivian, although the pricing and tow capacity on the Tesla are admittedly better; not that either are tangible at this point in time.

So while I am excited for electric trucks; I think it will be a few years before they are available, inexpensive, and have a viable range while towing a trailer. Looks like I will be buying a diesel this time around.

0 to 60 under 2.9 seconds (for the 3 motor version) sounds like there may be some interest among folks who habitually disregard speed limits and don't mind ugly. The flat surfaces look like they were designed to reduce the radar scattering cross section to evade highway radar, so we may have a pending public health problem on our hands. Maybe they should have a built in cockpit breath alcohol detector with a power cutoff switch.

Can't wait to see one with jumbo tires and 24" of lift. :o

Nah, better is the video from the Russian YouTube channel, Garage 54, fitting 13" rims to a Hummer, hell even my sisters Nissan Micra has 15" rims!

I think the biggest rip-off is the last decade automakers selling 18- 21 inch wheels that are still within the same 15 inch tire just a bigger hole in the tire for the rim to fit and basically ruin the ride and then charge more and more for less and less physical Tire 😳
