This is the Tesla Cybertruck, a sci-fi-inspired all-electric pick-up first hinted at by Elon Musk in 2014.

Cybertruck 1

Unveiled at Tesla’s design studio in Los Angeles, it’s safe to say this wedge-shaped pick-up truck isn’t what anyone was expecting. But if Tesla are famed for anything it’s not playing it safe.

Designed to have the utility of a truck and the performance of a sports car, at the top of the range it offers a ludicrous towing capacity of 6,350kg and a payload capacity of up to 1,587kg with a 0-60 acceleration of under three seconds and 500 miles of range unladen.

Durable, versatile and capable, with exceptional performance both on-road and off-road, it is built using ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel which helps eliminate dents, damage and long-term corrosion as well as keep passengers safe. Its ultra-strong glass can also absorb and redirect impact force for improved performance and damage tolerance.

Adaptive air suspension can raise and lower suspension four inches in either direction, while self-levelling capabilities adapt to any occasion and assist with every job.

Cybertruck load

2,831-litres of exterior, lockable storage is offered throughout the vehicle including the bed, front boot, and sail pillars.

The interior can seat up to six adults, with a 17in landscape touchscreen taking pride of place on the dashboard.

Cybertruck 3

Three variants of the Tesla Cybertruck will be available. Single Motor Rear-Wheel Drive is the entry-level model and offers 250 miles of range and a 3,401kg towing capacity. Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive is the mid-range option and boosts those figures with a range of 300 miles and a towing capacity of 4,535kg. Tri Motor All-Wheel Drive stands at the top of the range with its towing capacity of 6,350kg, 0-60 acceleration of under three seconds and range of 500 miles.

Cybertruck 6

Both Single Motor and Dual Motor models are expected to enter production towards the end of 2021. Tri Motor is expected to enter production the following year.
