Despite the 800km range of the Cybertruck pickup three-motor version, Tesla is still considering extreme conditions and intends to achieve “solar power” on it. Tesla, which has been working on its solar business, announced plans to install solar panels on its Cybertruck all-electric pickup models and officially launch solar panel options in 2021.
It is reported that in the non-open state can provide 15 miles (about 24 kilometers) of additional range, the expansion of the state can be increased to 30-40 miles (about 64 kilometers).
In fact, in recent years many car companies have been clamoring for “solar power”, but the technology is clearly not yet widely available in electric vehicles, largely because it is inefficient.
As early as 2017, Tesla tried to integrate solar panels into model 3 models, but they abandoned it because of their low efficiency.
After continuous research and development, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has pointed out that the new all-electric pickup Cybertruck will offer solar panel options that will add 15 miles (24 kilometers) of range per day to the vehicle, increasing to 30-40 miles (64 kilometers) per day.
In response, industry insiders believe that Tesla chose Cybertruck as its first solar panel-powered model, mainly because the model’s roof size is large enough to be embedded in solar panels, and easier for vehicles to generate more power.
Although it can not solve the extreme sleep situation, but at least will let users feel a lot of peace of mind, after all, the efficiency of solar panels are also visible to all.
