Teslarati covers Munro Q and A – Model Y has no competition!

Teslarati recently did a story on Munro’s Q&A session on the Munro Live YouTube site, where Sandy Munro says, “I don’t think anyone right now has a way of challenging Tesla.”

After the intense teardown that Munro did on the Tesla Model Y, Sandy Munro and his team got a very real picture of where the Model Y stands versus their EV competition from legacy carmakers… and it puts them into a completely different echelon.

Cybertruck Comparison Ep1 – Body Structure

Cybertruck Comparison Ep1 - Body Structure

Cybertruck Comparison Ep1 – Body Structure

Munro kicks off their next video series today which will compare the 3 leading pickup trucks currently in the market (F150, Silverado, and RAM) with the Tesla Cybertruck.

Episode 1 focuses on the exterior body of these vehicles and explains reasons why Tesla decided to take this angular approach in designing the Cybertruck.  Although polarizing to some, the choice of making the body 30X stainless necessitates this sort of look.

“Stainless Steel is not your best friend when it comes to forming techniques,” says Sandy Munro, which is why the Cybertruck has to be formed using a press brake rather than stamping dies. “These lines (on conventional trucks) are impossible with anything that is hard like a stainless steel,” Sandy re-iterates.

Watch the full episode here.

Stay tuned for our upcoming episodes, which will be released every Wednesday morning.  Next week’s episode will cover suspension, ride, and handling.

Most importantly, if you or your team wants to get ahead in the new EV world, our reports on the Model Y will put you in the driver’s seat.  We cover everything featured in our video series and more.  Also, our report on the leading 10 Electric Motors will let you know where everyone stands in the EV motor world.

Munro Series Compares Cybertruck to Leading Pickups

Munro Series Compares Cybertruck to Leading Pickups

Starting tomorrow, Munro will begin releasing its new video series comparing the leading pickup trucks to the Tesla Cybertruck.  Specifically, Sandy will dive into the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500, 2020 Ford F150, and the 2020 Dodge Ram 1500.  In the short promo video that Munro did on this series (which you can watch here) Sandy tells the audience that although the three trucks pictured are not going to be torn down, Sandy is going to use lots of data that Munro has found in recent teardowns of these vehicles in order to give the audience a reasonably accurate look at where the competition stands against the proposed specs of the Tesla Cybertruck.

“We are going to be looking at, what did they do, how did they do it, and why did they do it that way?”, says Sandy when talking about the series, “It’s important to know that the truck market is on a completely different playing field than the rest of the automotive industry,”  Because of this, Sandy expects that our viewers will be very interested in finding out, not only more about the truck industry in general, but how difficult it will be for Tesla to wrangle away the top seat with it’s edgy but polarizing new competitor.

Tune in tomorrow to watch the first episode in the series and dig into what makes these trucks tick.

Also, remember that we have several exciting reports that are for sale right now including the 10 EV Motor Analysis covering the 10 leading EV motors on the market, the Tesla Model 3, and the soon to be released Tesla Model Y Report.
