Did we learn anything?
More like it offers a "fix" to an addict... a calming peaceful feeling.
Unfortunately, just like the real thing, the euphoria is too fleeting.




of course, this leaves unanswered last week's media post about something in So.Cal

Welcome aboard and Congrats! 🍻

By the way, your new position comes with a Launch Green R1T. You’ll find it, um.....uh....well, we’ll get back to you very, very soon on that.

See you Monday!

Only that they’re doing a similarly detailed interior tour “soon”….🙄
Well that was lame, nothing new at all really, no new true details. What was kinda new (e.g. a button under lightbar) we already found on our own and whoa, a plastic cover to hide the hitch, amazing new details.

Maybe it wasn't ground-breaking information, but this is the type of new info I was hoping to get, and I'm glad they shared it. Looking forward to the interior version when it comes out.

It looks like they took the hooks out of the frunk to hold bags upright, etc. That's disappointing as it was a nifty little feature (and probably not very costly to them) that I would have used very frequently.

Yeah, my Audi had those in the trunk and it was incredibly useful and frequently used.

I found the extra detail around dimensions useful, I'll probably re-measure my garage this weekend.

Does anyone have a good understanding of how the load bearing panel they covers the tailgate gap fold up with the tailgate? I am struggling to envision it.

Imagine it being a drawbridge over a moat. It folds down covering the gap that is created when you lower the tailgate. It rests up against the tailgate when the tailgate is closed.

I'm thinking it slides back under that cargo area? somehow is attached to the gate, so when it opens the panel slides forward.

That wasn't new either...mainly some new dimensions, the optional air compressor accessories kit, even new details on the spare tire storage area that we didn't know.
