TESLA Launches Their First Pickup Truck “CYBERTRUCK”

The Tesla Cybertruck is an all-electric battery-powered light commercial vehicle in development by Tesla, Inc. Three models have been announced, with range estimates of 250–500 miles (400–800 km) and an estimated 0–60 mph time of 2.9–6.5 seconds, depending on the model.

The stated goal of Tesla in developing Cybertruck is to provide a sustainable energy substitute for the roughly 6,500 fossil fuel powered trucks sold per day in the United States.

The base price of the rear-wheel drive model of the vehicle will be $39,900, with all-wheel drive models starting at $49,900.

Features

The truck will use self-leveling suspension which compensates for variable load and some models will have all-wheel drive. Other standard features include on-board power inverters for supplying both 120 and 240-Volt electricity, allowing use of power tools without a portable generator. An air compressor for powering pneumatic tools is included. The exterior is bullet-resistant against 9 mm caliber bullets as well. All vehicles will also come standard with Tesla Autopilot, and will have the hardware capabilities for fully autonomous operation.

Interior

The interior of the prototype unveiled on 21 November 2019 includes a 17-inch center display, seating for 6 using two bench seats with the front middle seat being a fold-down center arm rest, a digital rear-view camera based mirror, a race car style steering yoke, and a dashboard with a surface resembling marble. The rear middle seat also folds down to allow loading long cargo extending through a door to the vault (enclosed bed). The “marble look” dashboard of the unveil prototype vehicle was a paper composite material made from “paper, wood-based fibers, natural wood pigments and non-petroleum based resins.”

Vault (bed)

The bed of the truck is 6.5 feet (2.0 m) long and similar to a conventional pickup truck bed with tailgate. It has sloped side walls and an integral motorized roller shutter style tonneau cover to improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Because of the additional security this provides, Tesla terms this 100-cubic-foot (2.8 m3) enclosed space “the vault”. It includes LED light strips along each side, an additional under-floor storage space behind the rear wheels, 110 and 220 V AC outlets, and a compressed air outlet for pneumatic tools.

EXOSKELETON

Cybertruck is built with an exterior shell made for ultimate durability and passenger protection. Starting with a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton, every component is designed for superior strength and endurance, from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin to Tesla armor glass.

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.

TESLA ARMOR GLASS

Ultra-strong glass and polymer-layered composite can absorb and redirect impact force for improved performance and damage tolerance.
