The Tesla Cybertruck, since it’s first show off by Tesla gained a worldwide attention, not because that it’s a Tesla product, but it’s a pickup truck which doesn’t seems like one. It seems like it came from the future, and just like Elon Musk who claims is an alien, the story of the creation of Cybertruck is compelling. Okay jokes apart, the pickup with it’s futuristic unibody scratch resistant and stainless metal design can gain anybody’s attention and that will be enough, but the claimed specs are even more exciting than that.
With a range of over 500 miles and a towing capacity of more than 14,000 lbs and a 1000 hp output tri motor all electric drivetrain with standard all wheel drive kills the competition, especially when it’s expected starting price of under $40,000, topped off by the Tesla’s unique approach of minimal cabin just like the rest of the lineup the new Cyber Truck is hoped to solve every truck owner’s need. Though we still don’t know the exact launch date of when it will be launched, new spy pictures came from the GigaFactory where the new Cyber Truck has seen with mirrors and a the controversial yolk steering we could expect the production would start next year. But since the global chip shortage and several other reasons, Tesla has delayed it until further date.
