Meet the Tesla CyberTruck

Posted by Michael Simon on

Most of the trucks we see on the road today look very similar to one another and maybe thats why I think the CyberTruck looks weird. Is it just me and my eyes?

The truck you see in the photo above is the actual CyberTruck that Tesla introduced, its not a concept its the real deal. A single strip of LED light cuts across the face of the CyberTruck's otherwise mundane fascia, which is made of Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel. Matter of fact the entire exoskeleton of the CyberTruck is made of this stuff and a sledge hammer was smacked against the driver side door to prove just how touch this material was.

A similar test was done on the "armored glass" only this time it was with a metal ball, but that didn't go so well. As Elon Musk stated..."theres room for improvement"

One of the coolest things about the CyberTruck is the fact that it has adaptive air suspension. This will give CyberTruck owners the ability to raise and lower the suspension four inches in either direction for easy access to CyberTruck or the vault, while self-leveling capabilities adapt to any occasion and assist with every job.

The CyberTruck comes with 3 different variations, there's the $39,900USD (P1,995,000) Single Motor RWD Cybertruck has a 250+ mile range, 7,500 pounds of towing capacity, and a sub-6.5 second 0-60 mph time.

The Dual Motor AWD CyberTruck is priced at $49,900USD (P2,495,000), and you’re looking at 300+ miles of range, 10,000 pounds of towing capacity, and under 4.5 seconds to 60 mph.

Finally, the Tri-Motor AWD Cybertruck gives you the ability to get 500+ miles of range and packs that maximum 14,000 pound towing capacity. 0-60 mph comes in at under 2.9 seconds and priced at $69,900USD (P3,495,000)
