Tesla Motors unveiled its all-electric pickup truck at the Tesla event. It became instantly popular upon its reveal, due to its unconventional design which had never been seen before on a pickup truck. which caught the attention of many people around the world.
According to the company, the production schedule was late in 2021, but since then it has changed three times. First from late 2021 to late 2022 then early 2023 and now the company will start initial production in mid-2023.
And anyway, there are still a lot of major changes in the exterior design, like we don’t see any side mirrors in the truck or there are no camera modules that can be used as mirrors. which is mandatory according to the regulations in force in any vehicle.
Tesla Cybertruck price, range and specs
The Tesla Cybertruck will be available in a total of three versions with different batteries and drivetrain configurations. whose price starts from $39,900 at $69,900 in the USA. in India, it is expected to launch at a starting price of ₹50.70.
- The single-motor version will come in RWD (rear-wheel-drive) only and offer a range of 400 kilometers.
- A Dual-Motor version will come in AWS (all wheel drive) and reach 480 kilometers.
- The latest and greatest Tri-Motor release ships with AWS and 800 kilometers of range.
According to Tesla Motors, the body of the Cybertruck is made from ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel that can withstand bumps. Where the body is strong, neither is the distance from the windows. Which is made of “Tesla Armor Glass”, which can absorb and redirect impact force to improve performance and damage tolerance (according to the company).
In addition to strength, the appearance is also very good. From the horizontal headlight covering the entire front, to the sharp lines on the side, to the horizontal taillight covering the entire rear, everything is perfect and looks very futuristic. The wheel spokes protruding from the sidewalls of the tires make the truck look pretty lousy. and represents the ultimate durability of the truck.
The truck comes with an adaptive air suspension that can be raised or lowered as needed with just the press of a button. In addition, the backrest can be lowered separately, which facilitates the loading and unloading of goods.
The Tesla Cybertruck also used a very unconventional interior design like some other Tesla cars. Simplicity and a minimal environment are visible throughout the interior. Where there are almost no buttons and rotary dials (except the steering wheel). There is no center console to control the car’s interior features. Instead, the center gets a giant 17-inch touchscreen. Which controls both the MID (multi-information display) and the car’s infotainment system as well as the air conditioning. In short, it is an all-in-one screen from which all the car controls are operated.
The truck gets a half-cut steering that Tesla calls the Yoke steering wheel that we saw in the tesla Model S. The interiors of the Cybertruck offer a total seating capacity of 6. and if you miss that space then it comes with a 6.5ft bed what they call the Cybertruck Vault.
Claimed towing capacity is 7,500 pounds in the single engine, which increases to 14,000 pounds in the three-engine variant, and also has a claimed payload capacity of 3,500 pounds. it’s a serious ability.
Battery capacity and charging time
The Cybertruck comes with 3 types of motors and 2 batteries The smallest single motor with a 100 kWh battery and a range of 400 km. The second has a 100 kWh dual-motor battery and a range of 480 km. and the third and largest comes with a tri-motor with a 200-250 kWh battery and a range of 800 km on a single charge. it takes about 21 hours and 31 minutes to charge a 200 kWh battery with a home charger and 21 hours if charged with a Tesla fast charger
Acceleration and maximum speed
The thing is, 0-60 mph can be achieved in 2.6 seconds to 6.5 seconds depending on the trim you choose. To see how fast this Porsche 911 can reach 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. On the other hand, a 3-tonne truck reaches 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. Faster than a sports car.
