I think it looks like a warthog from halo so I think it’s pretty dope
@Under The Gloves , I think it looks like a Johnny Cab from Total Recall, but it’s been like 20 years since I’ve seen that movie so I could be wrong
@Under The Gloves , it looks like a car from a PS1 game, something a pointy tomb raider would drive.
@Under The Gloves , eh, I think it's more of a Pum--
No, that one looks like a Warthog.
I watched the reveal highlights and I couldn’t believe how unenthusiastic everyone was
You gotta think the aerodynamics are along to slash the mpgs
@robee, I didn’t know fully electric vehicles had any mpg to begin with
@TriangleTesticles, yeah man, gallons of electricity is a valid measurement for sure probably
@TriangleTesticles, electric vehicle efficiency is measured in different ways, usually watt-hours per mile or miles per kilowatt-hour. MPGe is a thing that some manufacturers use to be able to compare to a gas car, but it’s a very, very dumb measurement.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, yes.....that is exactly what i was referring to.....i absolutley knew about that concept before just now....im glad you divulged for those who weren't privy to it.....a group to which i did not belong
@robee, as an electric vehicle owner, I take pleasure in helping people understand the vehicles.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, thank you sir. And as an idiot i take pleasure in people walking me through things i don't know about.
turn all my competitive shooters down to 720p so i can wreck noobs
I'm not saying that a 40k armoured vehicle should be perfect. What I'm saying is that if your vehicle can only stop the easiest of rounds, you might as well go buy a regular car. And really? We're stooping to name calling? You must be an 11 year old kid.
Anyone that is attacking ANY vehicle is going to use more than a 9mm.
So, truck owners. Forget the fact it’s an EV - would you buy a truck that looks like this?
@Nellybert , I'd love to have an EV truck, but I'd want it to:
A. Look like a Truck (not an armadillo)
B. Have enough range while actually carrying something to be comparable to current alternatives (and not even to a diesel).
@Nellybert , I am not a truck owner, but I am sure you would agree that this cyberpunk wetdream of a vehicle would look goofy as heck towing a trailer with livestock. If one were to go with a cyberpunk aesthetic electric vehicle I’d be more interested if it was a sports coupe or something along that line. You could live the future we were promised but will never have behind the wheel of something like that.
@SirLordKraftDinner, Most the pickup trucks in the UK are used by builders and such (farmers tend to go for Land Rover and such) - which means they often have a boxed in back (I have no idea what the proper name is) so they can carry things the size of a cement mixer in them. Can’t see this doing that.
@Nellybert , In Alberta, Trucks are pretty common place. Lots of general work getting done. I do agree that some utility seems to have been sacrificed for the dank aesthetics of this cybertruck.
@SirLordKraftDinner, Still, bare sheet metal is one way to solve the paint issues they had with the Model 3.
@Nellybert , And it’s such a meme of a vehicle at this point the marketing is doing itself.
@SirLordKraftDinner, That, and people being able to say “I’ve ordered a Tesla” while only putting down a £100 fully refundable deposit.
Yeah now if only the armor actually worked for more than a water gun.
@punsnipermark6, pretty sure they hit it with a sledgehammer without leaving a scratch
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, my main thing is that it was pitched that the cybertruck was immune against 9mm. Which are fast boolets, but a lot of vehicles can still provide protection against a handgun of that caliber. (Windshields can affect ballistic trajectory pretty significantly) I would be curious how the cyber truck would hold up against 5.56x45mm (the caliber of the trendy AR15) or 7.62x39mm. (The supreme boolets of the AK-47) I have a hunch that most calibers would simply ricochet off the aesthetics of the truck. The sledgehammer demonstration makes more sense to market than the truck’s ability to be bulletproof. The truck is niche and doesn’t have any practical value to steal it what with all the antitheft technology. Just steal an F150 since they are more common and the police are spread thin enough as it is. The materials in catalytic converters are worth some decent coin alone.
@SirLordKraftDinner, 9mm isn't a fast round. Bottom line, the armor failed.
@punsnipermark6, how did it fail? It stopped a 9mm. No consumer vehicle is going to "bulletproof" without being waaay more expensive. You expect a truck for 40k to be an armored vehicle? Lol. If your that concerned about being shot at with a higher caliber on a regular day in your truck, you probably live in an area that you can't afford it to begin with
@SirLordKraftDinner, you can't expect a civilian vehicle to be rated to stop rifle rounds. If that's YOUR concern, I'm concerned about what your day to day life is like that that is a concern of yours. You don't have to tell me about superior rounds either, it's why have almost all 7.62 calibers. ,x39, .308 and 54r. The fact of the matter is, it's a selling point. No one that would buy this truck lives in an area that dodging bullets is a normal everyday occurrence and if you do get shot at on the road, it'd be by a handgun, either 9mm or 45 which is bigger and slower so, it probably wouldn't penetrate this trucks panels either. My buddy was shot like 4 years ago by a road rager that cut him off and my buddy gave the finger to. Through his f150 door panel, him and out the other door panel
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, https://youtu.be/d6UpHjJvnn0
That window broke from a ROCK..... I wouldn't trust it to even stop a 9mm.
@punsnipermark6, your argument was the 'armor'. I know they call the glass "armored" but not even an idiot would consider glass armor. And I dare you to take a tennis ball size metal ball to your window. At least this window bounced it back. After you break your window, please, pretty please, find me a vehicle that starts at 40k that is fully bullet proof.
I'm not defending this truck. I think it looks stupid and will be bought by people that think it's cool, not people that need a truck. But your argument is fvcking retarded.
@SirLordKraftDinner, stamped aluminum doors/bodies do provide a bit of protection, but bullets can and will still penetrate. Cold-rolled steel doors and panels prevent penetration, i.e. what this truck sports. This is also the reason for the angular design, you can’t stamp cold-rolled steel to form rounded/car-like designs, it will break the press.
