    Honest question, I'm not sure they do, and it they, this one doesn't seem to be any worse than my F350

    I also question that part, but doubt it's any worse than the coupe/SUV bodies like the BMW X6, Acura ZDX etc.

    Probably drain the battery faster
    For those of you who own Teslas, do they recharge the batteries when you coast downhill as hybrids would do?

    What do you think is problematic about them?

    The design, while not for everyone, is much better from aerodynamic standpoint that any normal truck (which are terrible), especially the roof line.
    Think Coanda effect in the way it was used in the F1 blown diffusers (bending the flow), but over an entire car.
    I'm not sure if truck and car pedestrian crash standards are the same, so maybe it's a non issue. Maybe I was just cranky.

    If the sloping rear roof line inhibits ingress and egress, it is likely to inhibit sales. Witness the Chrysler 200.

    With the uphill comment, my concern was heat management. The hotter an electrical circuit becomes, the more resistance produced, the more resistance produced, the more heat. It's a feedback loop. If you're pulling a heavy trailer, can the system withstand/shed the heat?

    Regarding the wheel arches, snow on the road tends to turn to slush, which packs into wheel openings and creates "fender bergs." Round is a better shape.

      {"
      * F-150 width is 83.5", 96.8" is with mirrors)
      * dimensions are from 4 door / short bed models
      got these from Jalopnik, I believe they got it from Ford.

      you can hate it all you want, but you got to admit that specs are impressive.

        it might work for racers.... tow 150 - 200 miles to track and charge 24 hours with a RV charger (I believe all California track have RV chargers)

          Or is worried truck bed will get scratched...

            What's funny to me is to point at some truck owners for "being posers" but then saying that SUV is somehow better in this regard...
            The SUV segment as a whole was created as one giant poser mobile, the percentage of ones that actually see any off road use is measured with a few zeroes after the decimal point 0.000XXX%

              SUVs can be quite comfortable to get in and out of

                So are many trucks, and the point is?
                Minivans are better people movers, minus the part that they don't have that "I look like I'm off roading" level of fake coolness

                  The same can be said with sports car's that don't see the track.

                  I must admit, the Tesla truck is growing on me.

                  Don't know why my Cybertruck post was deleted in the Supermiata FB page btw..... Tow vehicle discussions are very relevant, like they are here!

                  We will have one racer that will be towing their S2's with a Cybertruck ( Evan just placed his order), and possibly one other that I know of (Erin) that has been lusting after a Tesla truck for quite some time, not sure if he still likes it though....

                    CyberTruck's bed do have a built in power cover. so it is technically a SUV?
                    its bed is also significantly longer than all other 1/2 ton short bed (as overall length is similar).
