The Tesla cybertruck is an impending electric-powered battery light-duty truck designed to ride like a sports car. Tesla has announced three models of this truck so far.
According to Reuters, Tesla will begin to produce large-scale of its cybertruck at the end of 2023. If you wonder why the truck is unique, here is what you need to know.
Tesla aimed at developing the cybertruck to provide a clean energy alternative to the approximately 6500 gas-powered trucks sold daily in the United States.
The truck has an outer shell for maximum longevity and passenger protection. Its exterior is stainless steel, resistant to scratches and dents, with 100 cupid feet of lockable storage.
It has adaptive air suspension, allowing owners to lower or raise the truck four inches in all directions. It has Tesla armor glass which protects the window.
The interior has room for six people with extra storage under the second-row seats. The steering wheel is a butterfly yoke design with a 17 inches touchscreen.
In addition to its all-wheel drive, the cybertruck can tow 14,000 pounds and has an approximate range of over 500 miles.
Tesla has not disclosed the battery size that will power its electric truck. Nevertheless, each model comes with a 250 KW charging cable with rights to Tesla’s extensive supercharger network.
Elon Musk recently claimed that the truck would be waterproof and could serve as a boat to cross lakes, seas, and rivers. It will come with side mirrors as the law requires in the USA and other countries.
The cybertruck has a windshield wiper with one blade all over the front. The wiper can extend without being too tricky and annoying to use.
Tesla will be producing the truck in mass at Gigafactory Texas. Meanwhile, Elon Musk announced the production of small trucks for Europe, which might be built in Giga Berlin.
Elon Musk mentioned an option to attach solar cells to the roof to charge 15 miles daily.
