But Now Here Is The Real World

Tesla Cyber Pick-up Truck may not appeal to everyone’s taste but the specs in the real world are impressive.  According to Tesla the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive will be available in 2021.

Price

Tesla has just announced incredibly low pricing for the Tesla Cybertruck. Tesla says the truck will start at $39,900 in base trim and top out at just $69,900 in top tri-motor form. That’s even lower than the sub $50,000 target announced previously by Musk.

Range

It’s official, the Tesla Cybertruck has made its world debut. According to CEO Elon Musk, it will have a maximum range of over 500 miles per charge. The base “Standard Range” model will have over 250 miles of range. There will also be another trim level in between the two. It will have over 300 miles of range.

Performance

The Tesla Cybertruck reveal showed a vehicle that will not have paint options or a traditional bed, but it will be able to tow 14,000 lb, to pull anything, according to Elon Musk, and offer its owners a 2.9 s acceleration from 0 to 60 mph. That is enough for the pickup truck to beat a Porsche 911.

The pickup truck will be available with three options of range and engines: a RWD, able to tow up to 7,500 lb with a 250+ mi range, a dual-motor AWD, willing to pull 10,000 lb with a 300+ range, and a tri-motor AWD that has the top specs, but no details. Its range will be 500+ mi.

Personally I can’t wait! 😎 (wonder if I can paint it red?)
