Elon keeps hoping that side mirrors can be eliminated eventually. Cameras is what he wants to use, the rear view mirror on the truck uses a camera

This was a unveiling, so things like what you mention will be added. As for the final version, it won't change that much in design. If anything, it will be minor.

I have a 50amp solely for charging the Tesla. I had my neighbor install it (he's an electrician) so the price was cheap...a bottle of bourbon smile

I bought all the items needed, so that cost roughly $130 (the wiring was the most expensive part, $100 for it)

We went on exterior of house to make it quicker to install

That is a great and cost-effective way to get that done!

I thought this was a good size comparison between the truck and v3.



It is similar between my full-sized Chevy truck and Jeep Patriot though.

My truck will not fit in either one of my garages...wonder how long the Tesla truck is.

Ha. Funny to see it called V3, that's the latest supercharger name.

This is a pretty neat article about one being seen in the wild;

If you have two Teslas charging, would you need another circuit installed? Can you just use a 110 to keep a charged up one ready?

I bought one Apple stock decades ago when they were really struggling...so I know the feeling!

You can use 110, but the charge speed is really slow. I donít know about having 2 circuits but i would imagine that they would split the speed. I plan on having 2 separate ones once I move into our new house

I bought 10 shares of Apple stock back when they split and at $90.
