Ever since Elon Musk revealed the Tesla Cybertruck at the back end of 2019, everyone has been talking about it. Few cars have been as eagerly anticipated as this one. And there are quite a few good reasons why. You only need to look at a photo of this unique automobile to realize just how special it will be. Once it’s out on the road, it will make standard Dodges and Chryslers look like they’re from a bygone era. We’re going to have a look at the Tesla Cybertruck and answer all the key questions you might have about it.
What is the Tesla Cybertruck?
Tesla is the company when it comes to electric cars, so it won’t surprise you to find out that its Cybertruck will be completely electric and powered entirely by a battery.
As with all Tesla cars, this one will be available in multiple models, each offering a different range and top speed.
The three models are distinguished by the motors that are inside them. There is a single motor model. A dual motor model. And a triple motor model.
The single motor Tesla Cybertruck will a range of approximately 250 miles, depending on how the car is used. You can get up to a top speed of 110 mph in it, and it will go from 0 to 60 in less than 6.5 seconds. It will offer a towing capacity of more than 7,500 lbs.
The next model, which has dual motors inside it, can give you even more range, with estimates of more than 300 miles being promised by Tesla. You can also drive it quicker, as it will get to from zero to 60 in less than 4.5 seconds. Its maximum speed will be 120 mph.
The top-of-the-range, tri-motor Tesla Cybertruck offers better numbers across the board. You’ll be able to drive it for more than 500 miles without needing to charge it. When you put your foot down, then you’ll get from being stationary to 60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds. And it’ll offer you a top speed of 130 mph. The extra power also means that you can tow more with it, and it’ll have a capacity to tow weights up to 14,000 lbs.
The Tesla Cybertruck has an exoskeleton that’s been constructed from the same material that Tesla uses for its space vehicles. It’s got a highly unique faceted design that you have to see to believe.
All models of the Tesla Cybertruck feature an all-wheel design. As this is a pickup truck, it’s built to be driven off-road, as well as on standard highways. In fact, the base of the truck is very similar to what you’d find on a regular pickup truck, and it’s got a standard tailgate too.
Although there will likely be some changes from the prototype that Elon Musk unveiled in 2019, it’s predicted that it will have a marble-style dashboard and a 17-inch display screen. If you’ve ever stepped inside a Tesla before, then you’ll know that these extra-large displays are common inside them.
The plans suggest that it will be possible to sit six people inside a Tesla Cybertruck. That’s because it has bench seating. It also will have middle seats than can be folded down so that you can fit more in the trunk of the pickup.
And one of the most well-known features of this car is the armored glass windows that Elon Musk accidentally shattered in his unveiling of the car.
When Will the Tesla Cybertruck Come on the Market?
The first model of the Cybertruck to hit the market will be the single motor model. Tesla has promised that production will start in the middle of 2021, with the first cars hitting the market at the end of that year. The dual-motor and tri-motor models are supposed to be for sale at the beginning of the following year. It’s unclear at the moment if the coronavirus crisis will cause these dates to be pushed back. Currently, Elon Musk is suggesting that everything is still on track for the Cybertruck to be for sale in later 2021.
How Much Will the Tesla Cybertruck Cost?
Each of the models comes with a different price tag, of course.
The single motor Tesla Cybertruck is priced at $39,900. The dual-motor version will cost $49,900, and the tri-motor Cybertruck is the most expensive and will set you back $69,900.
The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most exciting cars to be unveiled in a long time. Its unique looks make it stand out from the crowd. There will be three different models for people to choose from, and the price is more affordable than many of Tesla’s previous models.
