Tesla’s Cybertruck is set to be the seventh vehicle added to the electric brand’s product lineup. Revealed by firebrand CEO, Elon Musk at the LA motor show in late 2019, the Cybertruck created a splash with its overtly angular styling and typically outlandish Tesla performance claims.
Musk says the Cybertruck will do 0-97km/h in just 2.9 seconds and have an electric range of "more than 805km on a single charge." The concept truck’s blocky bodywork is claimed to be made from “30x cold rolled stainless steel” that supposedly won’t dent or scratch.
Musk claimed in the days after the Cybertruck concept’s reveal that Tesla had received up to 250,000 refundable $100 pre-orders.
A production version of the dual-cab competitor is set to hit the US market in late 2021 and will compete with rival electric brand, Rivian, as well as electrified versions of established players like Ford’s F150.
