      robotec007 Apparently one company has already reached 1000wh/kg while also being more eco friendly. Innolith, a Swiss company. Obviously there are many other factors to consider, but this is a break through.

      Ancient Bear And that’s if you get the Avg fuel economy stated by Ford. Often it’s a little worse.

      This is NOT a Truck or even a SUV it's just a all wheel drive big electric car👎

      2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty MPG unladen 12.4 mpg. 250 miles = 20.16 Gallons = Ave US cost gallon = $2.50 = Trip cost of $50.
      CyberTruck Laden = 250 Miles. US Ave 12Cents a kilowatt. 150 kw per 500 mile unladen range = Trip cost of $18.

      So an Laden Tesla Cyber truck will be 3 times cheaper to run than an unladen F350.

      A Cybertruck with solar panel will give 15 miles per day of sun, making ave commuting close to being free on some days.

      Top 5 Off roading issues.
      1. Wheel Misalignment, 2. Tire Damage, 3. Body Damage, 4. Damage To The Undercarriage, 5. Transmission Problems

      2/5 Eliminated by the Cybertruck.

      Smart money goes to the Cybertruck. Old school will keep driving gas trucks as foreign countries keep jacking up the price to keep a dwindling demand profitable.

        Remember the target market for the Tesla Cybertruck is not a single soul who actually needs the utility of a truck. It’s for wannabe rich kids who need to feel special and NEVER be bothered to tow or off-road. You’ve just proven that the Cybertruck - if it will ever actually exist - will be the horrifying evolution of those Jeep-people who have never been off pavement (ie. 90% Jeep owners).

          I sent you a link to a patent for a Fusion electric generator on your Facebook Messenger.

          Imagine that generator in the back of a Tesla read trying to camper and having fun

            Yes I always take my family car up a steep bolder filled dirt road every weekend to tear out my transmission, or differential or the oil pan out of my gas car🚗!!! How dumb are you guys!
            Maybe you should had tried to go up a 45 degree cliff face like they do with a lot of the huge wide tired jeeps to get you point across this Tesla is NOT A MOUNTAIN VEHICLE!
            I thought they invented trucks/jeeps🚙 to do just that, to go up motor bike trails/mountains. Maybe use a CyberTruck (2022) instead with the best clearance in trucks!

                    Okay why do you not have a anti-sway bar for hauling such a large and heavy trailer? You would loose that extra movement the trailer is putting on the hitch and car, not a smart move without the anti-sway bar installed!!!

                      You actually impressed me with the Tesla power. I would not have guessed it could have done that. You sold me on a Telsa Truck! What idiot would take a passenger car up a logging road? Try taking the CyberTruck up the same road?

                        So you're driving 70 miles/h with a box shaped trailer and are surprised the energy usage is 3 times as high?

                          These electric cars are for "yuppies". They're built to go no further from major metropolitan areas than the suburbs. They could be used to travel between the major cities east of the Mississippi or on the west coast.

                            Why am i not surprised. Tesla isnt the save all it was meant to be. Issues and problems left right and center. U want to tow heavy electric isnt where it needs to be to be of any value. drive for an hour charge for a hour. Your weekend camping trip that should of took 2-3 days now takes 3-4 days and pray you can recharge somewhere. I'll stick with my HD Diesel that can tow 35000 lbs and i know that in all likelyhood i ever do run out of fuel That there is a station to get me going again. If you run out power in a Tesla the tow bill is more that what you will save in the lifetime of the car for fuel. Hope you dont ever run out in a remote campground or you'll be walking home.

                              Ice vehicles face the same issues the mileage drops significantly. The model x wasn't really designed really for overlanding either. People take brand new Jeep's and the like and have to spend huge amounts of money to upgrade suspension,tires,wheels,brakes, and sometimes engines. So while I am surprised somewhat of the usage but in reality gas or electric fuel is fuel. The more you strain the vehicle the lower it performs. At least with ev's you have regen and electricity is widely available even produce able in the middle of no where. Can you manufacture gasoline in the wild? Anyway this video seemed to me just a views grabber.

                                      Wow so I was right about these things being an absolute joke. Tesla has only done one thing right, that is hype. They won't design a proper vehicle for the applications they are claiming these things can be capable of.

                                        It's something that's been on my mind for years: why hasn't anyone made fun off-road EV. off road fun rides are not necessarily long hauls, so range should not be that much of an issue. And besides that EV could have an engine par wheel, with independant traction control if you like that kind of things. no need to worry about differential, or what not. Obvisouly the model X is not an off-roader... (yeah, duh! we wouldn't have guessed! ) but I wonder why there isn't one on the road & path yet. Also the video shows us the consumption of the Model X towing, but not the the EV consumption on the hill climb, nor the fuel consumption of a SUV (ie not truck) towing the same trailer.

                                              Did you really think you'd get the same range with a trailer? You won't need additional motors. There is enough power. But it's obvious that you would need bigger batteries. They will give you more range and will charge faster. I wonder who will put bigger batteries in their trucks... Doesn't the cybertruck come with 500 miles range at a lower price than your model x?

                                                    towing 4500+ and 2000+ lbs at 70-75mph, (most states limit trailers to 55/60mph) and not expecting a loss in range ?
                                                    doesnt sound like you are trying for a fair test
                                                    I'd like to see what the actual cost/mile comes out to (compared to a Jeep Grand Cherokee towing the same load at the same speeds)

                                                      So, no actual data on the off-road range, just a "once again lost a lot of range". What exactly does "a lot of range" translate into? You know full well they did the math for the range so why not just say it?!?
                                                      Also, complaining that a 4WD car/van/whatever can't actually off-road like a truck? Really?? LOL! (Do we check the F-150 off-road capability by testing a Fusion?) Who would have guessed you actually *need a truck or off-road vehicle* to do a real test for off-roading? This "test" was not a test of the electrical capability; That was a test of the suspension - DUH! - a suspension obviously designed for ice/snow not off-road. So, hey, they proved you probably shouldn't off-road a vehicle not designed for off-roading. What a shocking result! Sorry guys. If you want people to 'believe' you're gonna' have to be a little more objective **rolleyes** because ending your video on that kind of "test result" and your vague comments makes me question the whole video.

I got it to replace my Nissan Titan and I book filmmaking jobs with it to tow cars on rigs for moving shots. This is about 15% of my work. 80% is me driving to set with my camera gear in the bed. 5% is me just showing up to set which I can do either in the cybertruck or my Kia Rhondo. I’ve never really been off roading with my Titan and don’t plan on picking it up with the cybertruck. But the benefits of the cubertruck for the filmmaking market is quite good. In fact it’s great. But this video was a great conversation starter for the aspects that aren’t talked about at big reveals and showcases. Thanks for uploading.

He did a pretty good explanation about what energy density and consumption means and why the things panned the way they did.
