Elon Musk Unveils the New Tesla Cybertruck
Elon Musk Unveils the New Tesla Cybertruck On Nov. 21, Musk took to the stage in Hawthorne, California, to reveal Tesla’s long- awaited electric pickup truck. Dubbed the Cybertruck, the vehicle is said to be more capable than a Ford F-150 and perform better than a Porsche 911.
The base model of the Cybertruck costs $39,900, while the top end Tri Motor All- Wheel-Drive (AWD) model starts at $69,900. The Tri Motor AWD version can reportedly go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, carry 3,500 pounds and tow up to 14,000 pounds. The base model of the car will have a range of 250 miles on a full charge, while the Tri Motor AWD version will have a range of 500 miles.
The Cybertruck is being toted by Musk as “literally bulletproof,” with its stainless steel alloy exterior and its “unbreakable” metal glass windows. However, a demonstration of the truck’s “unbreakable” windows did backfire, as a metal ball was in fact able to break them.
Production of the base model is set to begin in late 2021, with production of the Tri Motor AWD version to begin in 2022.
