The company’s fans have been wondering about Tesla Cybertruck specs, its price, and its release date for a while now. The production timeline of the car has been delayed many times. Since Elon Musk’s advance to the Twitter CEO, people who have been excited about Tesla’s developments on its electric cars have been disappointed.
Although the Tesla Cybertruck appears to have been delivered by an ‘extraterrestrial race’, it is capable of competing with all of the most popular pickup trucks. Tesla’s all-electric vehicle is extremely durable, with a sharply-edged body composed of stainless steel that is impervious to scratches and dents.
Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, reaffirmed his commitment to releasing the truck in 2023 on April 7, 2022, despite previous production schedule delays. In this article, we’re going to examine Tesla Cybertruck specs in detail and the latest rumors about its price.
Tesla Cybertruck specs
The Cybertruck can tow up to 14,000 pounds, has an estimated driving range of more than 500 miles, and offers all-wheel drive. The least expensive model starts at $39,900, albeit that only applies to the most expensive one. Of course, there are still a lot of unanswered questions regarding the Cybertruck, like the exact date of its launch.
The pickup truck, one of the most well-liked body types in America, is now part of the Tesla collection. Given how well trucks sell in our nation and its extremely remarkable stats for both an EV and a pickup, the Cybertruck gives the company a potentially strong seller.
But, it will first need to compete with vehicles like the Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, and the Ford F-150 Lightning. In the next years, Chevy intends to release an electric Silverado, and by 2024, Ram promises to offer an EV with a truck bed. Nevertheless, let’s take a deeper look at the Tesla Cybertruck specs by going over them one by one.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: EV motor, power, and performance
Not just one, not just two, but three electric motors are offered for the Cybertruck. The two- and three-motor variants have all-wheel drive, however the single-motor truck only has rear-wheel drive. Tesla promises it will reach a top speed of 110 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds.
The dual-motor Cybertruck is expected to have a top speed of 120 mph and can accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.5 ticks. The three-motor model, which Tesla claims will essentially teleport from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds (!), with a top speed of 130 mph, will appeal to those seeking the highest level of performance.
All Cybertrucks include an air suspension that is height-adjustable and offers up to 16 inches of ground clearance. This combined with its 35-degree approach and 28-degree departure angles might make the Tesla truck an extremely effective off-road vehicle.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Capacity of towing and payload
The Cybertruck will have a higher maximum rating than well-liked competitors like the Ram 1500 if it can pull as much as Tesla promises it can. Models with a third motor will be able to tow an incredible 14,000 pounds, compared to the single- and dual-motor Teslas’ maximum tow ratings of 7,500 and 10,000 pounds, respectively. Also, each Cybertruck’s 6.5-foot cargo bed can support 3500 pounds of weight.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Range, charging, and battery life
The size of the batteries that would power Tesla’s electrified truck was kept a secret. Each model will have a 250 kW charging cable, though. Naturally, it will also have access to Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network.
The driving range varies depending on how many motors are used, but according to Tesla, a single motor can go more than 250 miles, dual motors can travel more than 300 miles, and the top-tier tri-motor system can travel more than 500 miles on a single charge.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Fuel efficiency and actual MPGe
We are limited to using Tesla’s first projections because there are no official ratings for the Cybertruck. The same goes for testing its ambitious maximum driving range in actual driving situations; we’ll have to wait till we get our hands on a real production vehicle. Visit the EPA website for additional information about the fuel efficiency of the Cybertruck.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Interior, comfort, and cargo
When they see the Cybertruck’s sparse interior, those who thought the Tesla Model 3’s interior was minimalist would have the same reaction. The earliest photographs show a dashboard that resembles a slab and is entirely dominated by one sizable touchscreen, however many conventional features and settings are yet unknown.
Although nothing has been confirmed, the squared-off steering wheel appears to have some form of lighted display. The Cybertruck’s 100 cubic foot cargo bed and six-person seating capacity round out its features. Also, it includes a clever slide-out tailgate that can be used as a ramp to transport motorbikes and four-wheelers.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Connectivity and infotainment
The Cybertruck’s infotainment system’s technical specifications, like most of the interior, are mainly unknown. But, we do know that every model will include a sizable 17-inch touchscreen that is positioned horizontally in the dashboard’s center.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Driver help and safety
Tesla’s contentious Autopilot self-driving technology will be available on every model, and the firm claims to also offer a Complete Self-Driving option for $7000. We anticipate the availability of additional driver-assistance technology. Visit the websites of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to learn more about the crash test results for the Cybertruck.
Tesla Cybertruck specs: Coverage for warranties and maintenance
In its current models, Tesla offers a thorough guarantee; nevertheless, it excludes any free maintenance.
- Four years or 50,000 miles are covered under the limited warranty.
- No matter the mileage, the powertrain warranty lasts for eight years.
- There is no free scheduled maintenance
Tesla Cybertruck Price
Three alternative versions of the Cybertruck will be offered, each with a different number of electric motors. Although all but the single-motor version come standard with all-wheel drive, adding more motors increases performance, range, and towing capacity. Here are the prices of each version of Tesla Cybertruck.
- Single Motor – $39,900
- Dual Motor – $49,900
- Tri Motor – $69,900
Although the official release date is not announced yet, Musk’s commitment to releasing the Cybertruck in 2023 continues. However, with the ongoing role of his Twitter CEO, Tesla fans have partially lost their faith in Musk and therefore the commitment he made about the Cybertruck’s release date doesn’t convince many.
