Tesla Cybertruck Looks Like An Pickup Truck With Stealth technology

Published

Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Thursday revealed the Tesla Cybertruck which looks nothing like any pickup truck you’ve ever seen and straight out of a post-apocalyptic-era movie. The Tesla Cybertruck, which Musk unveiled to the guests at the Tesla Design Centre in Hawthorne, California, is made of cold-rolled steel, armored glass, and adaptive air suspension.

The Tesla electric ATV didn’t get a lot of time to shine on its own and was primarily used to demonstrate the working of Tesla Cybertruck bed and active suspension for loading cargo. But Tesla made sure to point out that you will be able to charge the four-wheeler right from the Cybertruck while the ATV is loaded in the bed.

Musk didn’t mention anything about the launch timeline of the ATV but the production slated to begin in late 2021. A demo driver did drive up onstage and loaded it into the bed, making it real enough to be functional. Like the Cybertruck itself, it features a body design with a lot of intersecting flatplanes and angles painted in matte black, making it look like an ATV version of the stealth bomber.

Tesla will offer three variants of the Cybertruck. The cheapest version integrating a single motor and rear-wheel drive model will cost $39,900 and have a towing capacity of more than 250 miles of range. The middle version will have a dual-motor with all-wheel drive and have a towing capacity of more than 300 miles on a single charge. It is priced at $49,900. The third version will have three electric motors with an all-wheel drive, a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds and a battery capacity of more than 500 miles. This version, known as “tri-motor” has a price tag of $69,900.

Musk also spoke about the acceleration of the cybertruck showing a video at one point of the truck beating a Porsche 911 off the line. He further said the “tri-motor” can travel from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 2.9 seconds. The single-motor wheel drive model, on the other hand, is the slowest off the line with a 0 to 60 mph acceleration of less than 6.5 seconds.

Musk has talked about developing an all-electric pickup truck for years now. In April 2017, Musk tweeted his desire to make a pickup truck and said a pickup truck will be unveiled in 18 to 24 months. In December, Musk resurrected the idea claiming Tesla might have a prototype to unveil in 2019. But the idea from Musk’s head to delivering pickup trucks has certain challenges as its rivals GM and Rivian are stated to deliver their electric trucks soon.
