Elon Musk Unveils the New Tesla Cybertruck
  • 4 years ago
On Nov. 21, 2019, 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.
