Elon Musk debuted the Tesla Motors Cybertruck at the Tesla design studio last year, and it went viral for its striking design and its clashes against the Ford F-150 after it was launched last year.
Though the Tesla Cybertruck production has been shifted to 2022, it has still been the most anticipated car of recent times!
Despite its alien-like appearance, the Tesla Cybertruck is capable of taking on all of the top-selling pickup trucks. A bodywork constructed of scratch- and dent-resistant stainless steel gives Tesla’s electric pickup truck a rugged, angular look. Towing up to 14,000 pounds is possible with the Cybertruck, which has an estimated driving range of 500-plus miles. The most costly model has a starting price of USD 39,900, while the least expensive one has a starting price of USD 38,900. A lot about the Cybertruck is still a mystery, including when it will be available for purchase. Currently, it appears that the first versions will be released in late 2022.
Tesla Cybertruck Interiors
Cybertruck’s cabin will remind anyone who thought the Tesla Model 3’s interior was sparse. It’s still unclear what the car’s standard features and options are going to be, but the first photographs show an all-touchscreen dashboard that looks like a slab. However, nothing has been established about its squared-off steering wheel. In addition, the Cybertruck’s 6.4-feet cargo bed offers 100-cubic feet of space. As an added bonus, the tailgate slides out to reveal an easy-to-use ramp for loading four-wheelers and motorbikes.
Tesla Cybertruck Specs
A total of three electric motors are available for the Cybertruck. Trucks with only one motor have a rear-wheel-drive system, while those with two or more motors have all-wheel drive. Tesla claims it can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 6.5-seconds and reach a top speed of 110mph. Dual-motor Cybertruck will supposedly reach 60 mph in 4.5-seconds and have a top speed of 120mph, according to sources. For those looking for the ultimate in performance, the three-motor variant will take you from zero to 60mph in only 2.9-seconds, and on to a top speed of 130mph. There is an adjustable air suspension on all Cybertrucks, which can be raised or lowered on the fly.
Tesla hasn’t said how big the batteries that will power its electric pickup are going to be. Nevertheless, every model will come with a 250-kW charging cable as a standard issue. It will, of course, have access to Tesla’s massive network of Superchargers as well as its own. This varies depending on the number of motors, but Tesla claims a single motor can travel 250-plus miles, dual motors can travel 300-plus miles, and the tri-motor system can travel more than 500-miles on a single charge, according to Elon Musk.
Tesla Cybertruck Features
The Cybertruck’s infotainment system is essentially a mystery, as is the rest of the cabin. But we do know that every model will have a large 17-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard. Tesla’s contentious self-driving Autopilot technology will be standard on all models, and they claim to offer a Full Self-Driving option for USD 7000. Other driver-assist technologies are also expected to be available.
Tesla’s Cybertruck is not only based on superb specs of a pickup truck but also features a futuristic design!
Tesla Cybertruck Competition
The Cybertruck, with its remarkable stats for both an EV and a pickup, may be a big seller for the firm, given how popular trucks are in the United States. To begin with, it’ll be up against the Ford F-150 Lightning, the GMC Hummer EV, and the Rivian R1. Also in the next couple of years, Chevrolet plans to introduce an electric Silverado, while Ram claims it will have an EV with a truck bed by 2024.
Tesla’s Plan in India
In Elon Musk’s tweets, he said in July that Tesla would be in India by the end of the year or early in the following year. A month later, he stated the same thing to IIT Madras students during a conversation. For Musk, it’s the government’s policies that have stymied his ambitions in India, as well as FDI rules that have delayed his electric car maker’s entry into the country. Shiftup.club believes the EV revolution in India isn’t in the distant future and Tesla’s entry into the Indian market can be the onset of the huge EV adoption. “I’d love to visit India someday. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has earlier tweeted: “Some challenging government regulations, unfortunately.” The future will tell if Tesla automobiles will be sold in India anytime soon.
To sum up about Tesla’s Cybertruck, here are a few things to keep in mind. It will be available in three models, the cheapest of which will have a single motor and rear-wheel drive and will cost USD 39,900 (approximately INR 28.62 lakh). It will have a towing capacity of around 3400 kg and a range of 400 km. The intermediate model will have two engines, an all-wheel-drive, a towing capacity of over 4530 kg, a range of 480 kilometres, and a price tag of USD 49,900 (approximately INR 35.8 lakh). The electric vehicle price in India has also been plummeting over the years and coming in line with IC engined counterparts. So Tesla has to be extremely particular about the pricing of the Cybertruck and other possible offerings if they are launched in India, to get the same response that they got from their home soil.
