the new Tesla “Cybertruck” looks incredible
What is the Tesla Cybertruck?
For those unfamiliar with Elon Musk’s highly anticipated vehicle project, the Tesla Cybertruck is unlike any road vehicle we’ve seen before.
For starters, it’s supposed to offer “more utility than a truck and more performance than a sports car,” according to Tesla’s official product page for the vehicle.
It’s heavy, sure, but the Cybertruck will also be mighty quick. Tesla is claiming it can sprint from 0-60mph in as little as 2.9 seconds, thanks to a powerful drivetrain and low center of gravity providing “extraordinary traction control and torque.”
As for range, the Cybertruck is set to offer up to 500 miles – which is an equally mind-blowing figure given the state of the competition right now.
If these credentials prove accurate when it finally hits the road, the Cybertruck will rival ultra-premium EVs like the Mercedes EQS for performance while offering the practical versatility of utility vehicles like electric Hummer.
The Cybertruck is available with not just one, not just two, but three electric motors. While the single-motor truck has rear-wheel drive, the two- and three-motor models have all-wheel drive. Tesla claims it’ll go from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and top out at 110 mph. The dual-motor Cybertruck will reportedly reach 60 mph in just 4.5 ticks and have a top speed of 120 mph.
Musk himself has already described his latest four-wheeled project as “a glitch in the Matrix” – but judging by this latest footage, the Cybertruck is looking more and more like an extremely exciting reality.
