Tesla launches electric truck it guarantees won't break for a million miles


The tripling was to represent likely maintenance and other costs which are roughly $8k/year for a normal truck, so I've been told.

So the savings would be 20% of ($63k+$8k) rather than 20% of $63k * 3.

Or about $14k.

Even if the savings *were* $37k, it still would not help since the interest on an enormous $500k loan would eat it up.
