Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk recently showcased the company’s first electric pickup truck in USA called the Cybertruck. The truck comes in three versions, the versions being that can run up to 250, 300 and 500 miles. Musk put the truck through different tests to showcase the strength and endurance of the vehicle.
The Cybertruck comes out in 3 variants, one with a single motor rear-wheel drive, while the other 2 are all-wheel drive. The Triple motor all-wheel drive comes with 500 miles of range and can do 0-60 MPH in under 2.9 seconds. It can be purchased for 69,900 US dollars (Rs 50.17 lakhs approx.). The Dual motor all-wheel drive has 300 miles of range and can do 0-60 MPH in under 4.5 seconds. It can be purchased for 49,900 US dollars (Rs 35.81 lakhs approx.) and the third variant is a single motor rear-wheel drive with 250 miles range, and can do 0-60 MPH in under 6.5 seconds.

The truck can seat six adults and the body of the Cybetruck will be made of ultra-hard 30X cold rolled stainless steel. The Cybertruck promises better performance than any sports car. The vehicle will be built with a tough exterior shell made for ultimate durability and passenger protection. Starting with a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton on this automobile, every component of the pickup truck is designed for superior strength and endurance.
The company says, “With up to 3,500 pounds of payload capacity and adjustable air suspension, Cybertruck is the most powerful tool we have ever built, engineered with 100 cubic feet of exterior, lockable storage — including cover that is strong enough to stand on.” And talking about using cold rolled stainless steel, they further say “If there was something better, we’d use it. Help eliminate dents, damage and long-term corrosion with a smooth monochrome exoskeleton that puts the shell on the outside of the car and provides you and your passengers maximum protection.”
Also, the Cybertruck has a vault-like lockable storage facility, with the second row having the ability to provide more storage. There is also a 17-inch touchscreen user interface in the central console. The Cybertruck is very futuristic in design and the performance seems too good to be true, we will have to wait and see the actual product in 2021, when it official hits the road. The truck is now available for pre-order on the website in USA.
Sadly, like every other Tesla vehicle, the Cybertruck might not make its way onto the Indian roads.
