    Transportation represents a large proportion of the GHGs emitted by we humans. So any progress in making it less polluting is an advance. So Musk debuted the Tesla pickup this last week. What a flop, only 200,000 pre-orders by now.


    Tesla's polarizing Cybertruck was preordered 200,000 times within 3 days

    It's definitely a strange looking thing, but if he holds the price where they say it is it will sell like hotcakes.

    Only an idiot or someone with more money than brains goes out and pays full retail for a new car.

    Article I read said starting price was under $40,000.

    Don't read more into my statement than it says.

    Given what is standard with Tesla's starting model, that is a comparable price to most of the pickups on the market. Their high end model, at $70,000 is comparable to the other high end models, also. And it comes with many features no other truck has at this time. It is definitely a game changer. Style? Odd, for a truck, but functional.
