    Seat belt use optional for passengers?
    Does the police escort come with the "subscription"?
    Difference between a rental and a subscription?
    Projected costs are a secret?

    I don't know, I tell you this much...it didn't shock me! Tesla's Cybertruck...now that's a shocker....a total departure from what a truck should look like. Too bad I can't afford it.

    That's funny, cost was the first question on my mind, funny thing, they don't mention it in either video.
    It goes back to the question, if you have to ask, you can't afford it.........

    The base price for a single-motor, rear-wheel-drive Tesla Cybertruck is $39,900, not including destination charges. The Dual Motor all-wheel drive version starts at $49,900 and the top of the line Tri Motor all-wheel-drive Cybertruck costs $69,900. Anything else for me are just glorified electric truck....that STILL looks like a truck and didn't care much for them. I'm not even holding my breath that TESLA can really sell the base model for that price otherwise people will be lining up to buy one....including me! ;) (39k - 7k incentive= 32k + taxes, licenses and distination charge)

    The Tesla Truck does nothing for me, but that Canoo is very cool, it has a lot of the options that would make it work for me, especially the bed that can change length, and the Cab is cool but the Tesla just doesn't "push my buttons" I see it as just a wedge. It just doesn't appeal to me at all.

    There's a few that "push the right buttons" for me other than just being a "wedge". First, the glass used on the windshields and windows are supposed to be laminated and bulletproof as well as it's 3mm stainless skins tested with different ammos. Shown here:
    https://carbuzz.com/news/is-the-tesla-cybertruck-bulletproof
    Now that feature alone for that kind of protection "included in the price" I will gladly pay. Peace of mind is everything. Now if the Canoo or any other new EV truck out there have this feature, I will be more than happy to explore it. Reality is you might not even need to have a bulletproof truck but then again there's no telling what the future holds. ;)
    2nd, it a wedge looking vehicle that have a motorized flatbed cover that rolls up or down to reveal it and can hold stuff like your motorcycle. (see the reveal).
    And 3rd, Tesla is a big enough company that can really make this project happen in a very short time and that my friend is key.

    I thought the Tesla Cyber Truck was a joke, but it wasn’t and the aero/futuristic styling grew on me. I’m happy to say that I have zero need for a vehicle that size......if I did it would likely be the Tesla Cyber Truck based on what 3wheelin said above, minus the peace of mind need for a bullet proof option. I assume I could be shot getting in or out of my bullet proof vehicle.
    So far I like the Tesla MY experience after a few short months and haven’t missed the COSTCO gas stops. :)
