Tesla Cybertruck Makes Its Debut With A Surprise Addition
Tesla CEO Elon Musk just unveiled the Cybertruck, the company’s first electric pickup truck. There will be three versions of the truck — 250 miles, 300 miles, and 500 miles of range — with a variety of towing capacities and 0-60 mph capabilities. Musk unveiled the truck at a cyberpunk-inspired event with many, many lasers, and even a surprise ATV.
Musk said at the reveal that “we need something different” than today’s pickup trucks and did he deliver.
Zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and a 10.8-second quarter mile time. Musk claims over 500 miles of range, though 250-plus and 300-plus mile versions will also be offered. It’ll be capable of 250kW fast charging too. There will be an entry-level rear-drive Cybertruck along with two- and three-motor all-wheel drive models.
Pricing starts at $39,900 and rises to $69,900 for the tri-motor version.
Musk says ordering on Tesla’s site is available now. You can see the complete pricing breakdown below. Production for the rear-drive truck begins in 2021, and the tri-motor will arrive in 2022.
