Uhh, everyone realizes that Tesla does sell cars currently and does not live in a world of giant vehicles, right? The CT is supposedly smaller than an F150, which Ford has no issue stuffing in garages nationwide. In fact, currently it's the most stuffed in garages vehicle in the US.
No one actually knows the dimensions, weight, etc of the CT. It appears nowhere on Tesla’s website even though this thing is supposed to start deliveries late this year. Looking at the only photo I’ve seen of those 2 trucks next to each other it certainly looks like the CT is longer than the F150.

R1T Launch Edition
My Lightning didn't fit in my garage either. The Rivian barely squeezes in with about an inch in front and 3-4 inches in the rear.
I have 32" of clearance front to rear on my R1T in the single side of my garage but only 8" clearance getting it through the door.....

I just don’t see 65k, based on Tesla‘s history of selling fully loaded high end first anything under 110k (most likely significantly more) before the end of 2024 would really surprise me. A base Model X starts at 110k. 🤷🏻

Yep. Me 2X. Would be great work trucks if they are what he says they are.

While I agree it will be available at more than $65k, Tesla is looking for volume out of the CT. I think that there will be a wide range of pricing and options that will allow them to address the ~$60K market and then up from there. They still have to compete with Ford, GM, and RAM in some regards and I'm certain they are aware of this.

The initial ones I'm sure will be pricey and loaded up, but as they ramp production and need to utilize the Austin facility, I think we'll see other pricing options, ala the current Model 3 that ranges from $43,490 up to over easily $60K with Advanced AP or FSD.

We've measured our garage and, assuming we do ever r get an e-truck, it will be tight, with some modifications to the garage interior. (removal of some shelves)

This one, that one and the other one.

I had large closets built into my garage for better storage space. If I removed one of them, then I could get the Cybertruck in there, or the Ford. But hate to do so. I have a deep garage and the storage space is priceless so don't want to give it up. Fortunately, with the Rivian, I don't have to. Just have to be extra careful pulling it in each time. Fortunately, I'm able to angle the truck in with the LF corner using the doorway to the closet, giving me an extra couple of inches.

I think this is accurate. Given all the claims Musk has made about this truck and it’s capabilities, do we really expect it to come in under the X? I would be very surprised.

Being let down auto manufacturers is a "Tesla only" thing? That's news.
Oh most definitely not. But most automakers‘ CEOs aren’t out there saying things like this:

I don't need a boat and I sure and heck don't hang on Elon's every word and seize on every thing as a "gotcha" point. Gotta take the good with the bad and the dude did advance the EV and drive the growth curve to where we are today almost singlehand.

I need a work truck with a closer to full sized bed at a better price point than 90K. If that truck does that...great. If the Ford Lightning does...great.

It’s not a “gotcha” point. Those are his words and he’s said it more than once. I can respect what he did to advance EVs and also think he’s a f*cking tool. If the R1T isn’t the truck that does what you need I hope one of the others is.

I guess I don't get as bothered by what Elon Musk says. I don't need my R1T to be a work truck. But I will need that functionality out of others.
