Tesla Cybertruck | Elon Musk Surprises Us Again!
Better utility than a truck, more performance than a sports car.
The creator of PayPal and the owner of SpaceX, has surprised everyone yet again. Elon Musk revealed the Tesla Cybertruck last Thursday. In an interesting turn of events, the launch didn’t really go as planned. The ‘impenetrable glass’ kind of cracked during one of the demonstrations. This led to a lot of memes on the internet. But apart from this, the new cybertruck actually has some amazing features.
What is Tesla Cybertruck?
According to Elon Musk, the SUV offers better utility than a truck and more power than a sports car. The Tesla Cybertruck provides better passenger protection with its durable exterior shell.
The impassable and ultra-tough (30X cold-rolled stainless-steel) exoskeleton, provides superior strength. The flawless technology also enables it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds which makes it the fastest SUV ever produced.
The high charge capacity provides up to 500 miles per single charge.
Elon Musk describes it as:
A really futuristic-like cyberpunk, Blade Runner pickup.
Some other Cool Features
Tesla Cybertruck is not your ordinary truck. The Elon Musk creation comes with quite a few cool features of its own. Here are 5 of my favorites:
- It has room for six passengers.
- It will come in single, dual and tri-motor versions.
- The tri-motor variant can speed from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and can carry 3500 pounds of payload.
- Tesla Cybertruck also houses onboard power for various electric tools and appliances
- The adaptive air suspension raises and lowers the suspension by 4 inches
What is the Price?
As per Elon Musk’s Tweet, 146k orders have been booked already.
