European pedestrian safety standards for one thing... but in reality land, crumple zones save vehicle occupant lives, not being built like a tank. Tesla is known for good crash test results and safety over all so I expect this truck to score well in crash testing... therefor the front will collapse like an accordion on frontal impacts. But the main point was that I don't care how tough the metal is, the paint quality means you can't take it off road unless you want it to look even more like crap than it does brand new.Who says the front hood has to collapse? The truck can probably just drive through the other car! :0
Ditto. It looks like it was designed by a bored high schooler in a geometry class. Also ... every single pre-release rendering looked better including the take-off of the old VW ones (https://www.motor1.com/features/237621/10-coolest-vw-pickups/); (https://insideevs.com/news/383696/tesla-truck-pickup-loyalty-ram-f-150/Great specifications, but I have never seen a fuglier vehicle in my life. And the shatter proof windows bring back memories of the Windows 98 Reveal and the blue screen of death.
Long live the Electric Chevy Pickup!
Probably California VOC rules making for crappy paint. I'd get a car in stainless if the option were available.the paint on Tesla's is notorious for being thin and easy to scratch. Who cares if your door metal doesn't scratch if you drive it off road, the paint will be ruined the first time you drive through some brush.
