After years of waiting and waiting, Tesla has finally released the all-electric pickup Cybertruck today, and let’s talk about an obvious thing — its shape — before we talk about the configuration. It looks like the Cyber truck is unlike any pickup you’ve ever seen before.
The car is really like what Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said, like a military transporter from a future movie, or a pickup truck full of future Cyberpunk son, silver-winged killers, and it turns out that Musk isn’t lying. Here’s a look at the following pictures:
Pay attention to the design of the steering wheel
It’s wilder from the back.
And there was an awkward scene at Thursday night’s press conference. Musk says the Cyber truck is incredibly resilient and can withstand hammers and even bullets. At the scene, however, a live demonstration of the Armored Glass of the Cyber truck did not go according to plan – the glass was cracked by a hammer.
Tesla is also expected to start production of the car in 2021, according to Musk, although the three-motor full-drive version won’t begin production until the end of 2022.
Interestingly, Musk also pointed out at the launch that the Design of the Cyber truck was inspired by the famous Lotus Esprit, which appeared in the Bond film “007 Underwater.”
Consumers can now book Tesla’s latest Cyber trucks at tesla.com/cybertruck. At present, the company will charge a deposit of $100. But as Tesla CEO Elon Musk said at a launch thursday night in Los Angeles, they still have a long way to go to continue delivering the car.
It is reported that Cyber Trucks has launched three optional versions:
Single-motor rear drive version: 250 miles range, 7,500 pound towing capacity, 100 km acceleration time of less than 6.5 seconds, starting at $39,900;
Dual motor full drive version: 300 miles range, 10,000 pounds of towing capacity, 100 km acceleration time of less than 4.5 seconds, starting at $49,900;
Three-motor full drive version: 500 miles of range, 14,000 pounds of towing capacity, 100 km acceleration time of less than 2.9 seconds, starting at $69,900.
Autopilot is standard, but like other Tesla models, an additional $7,000 is needed to buy a fully autonomous driving feature.
Tesla says the $100 deposit is fully refundable. In the future, customers will be able to choose the car configuration they want as production approaches.
