    Default Tesla Cybertruck update, Model S & X upgrade [Gigapress video]



    Updated Cybertruck info from yesterday's Tesla earnings call indicates an even Gig-ier Gigapress

    [The Cybertruck design is now fixed] ... we’ll be using an 8,000 tonne casting press for the rear body casting as opposed to the 6,000 tonne for the Model Y.
    1) The displacement of an Arleigh Burke destroyer is 8,433 tonnes.

    2) likely Model 3, and Cybertruck, will be using the Gigapress to do high pressure one-piece castings which make up the rear half of the frame. Evolving to include a front half casting + the new 4680 structural battery pack completes the undercarriage.

    Tesla unveils redesigned Model S with new interior and 520-mile range option

    Tesla has just announced the first major redesign of the Model S since it launched the electric sedan in 2012. This new version, which starts shipping in March, has a refreshed exterior, a simplified interior, and the option for a more powerful powertrain that lets the car travel at least 520 miles and go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under two seconds.

    Tesla’s Model X is also getting some touchups on the outside and the interior update, and there will be a version with that new powertrain, though the SUV’s refresh is not as extensive.
    >
    Triple-screens, yoke steering wheel, wireless gamepads, and many other upgrades.
