That's why you generally have two drivers and a sleeper cab.

Though if they can recharge the thing in the time it takes to walk over to the restroom and take a leak, they may have something :-)

I understand that it is a re-rendering of LOL in WoW because opponent's chatter is obfuscated.

What we learned in the last election cycle was that an ancient Egyptian diety had arisen to oppose Moloch, the big owl at Bohemian Grove. You can't deny there was major chaos in the last election.

Interestingly, the Southern Poverty Law Center [spit] ran a fairly informative article, if you ignore the obvious slant at the beginning and end. The Kekistani flag is not the same as, but the inversion of the Nazi flag.

Chaos represents both opportunity and danger.

It is a questionable decision to have only 1 seat and no bunk. This is a truck that will be used for two 400 mile legs with a recharge and be in a home yard every night. A standard Tesla Supercharger in the home garage will not quite charge it in 8 hours.
.
Cobalt is also rare. Large trucks could do well with LiFe batteries where weight and size is less of a concern. But I'm sure Tesla will want to make the truck pack similar to the cars.

I understood that there is a shotgun seat.

Perhaps Tesla will be as evolutionary as Arcimoto. They have gone to the pouch batteries (same as Zero motorcycle) instead of 18650 cells. I listened to Mark Frohnmayer explain that with cylindrical, spiral-wound cells the inner coils are subject to mechanical stress. Even prismatic cells might not be as good as pouches in that regard. Too much demand on the Gigafactory as it is.

I'm pretty sure there was a shotgun seat in the video. In terms of Cobalt, there's been a lot of activity around mines in Canada.

The Tesla Connection: Cobalt, Lithium and Canada

It's doubled in price too, which I'm guessing would increase the price of a Model 3/S/X by maybe $500-$700, and maybe ~$6,000 for the Tesla semi. It's something, but I don't think it'll make or break Tesla.

What a load of sh*t gets churned out on this forum. Bye. I'm out of here.

Tesla has talked about an electric service vehicle they can use instead of the diesel vehicles.

You know someone will get one instead of an Ford F-650 and drive it through a coffee kiosk.

Someone recently commented on here that Musk was trying to save the world.

I am not sure the super pickup is evidence of that.
