Elon Musk occasionally posted more details about the new electric pickup Cybertruck on Twitter, according tomedia. On February 21st, local time, the Tesla CEO launched a brief conversation and added some extra details about the electric pickup, such as size and many other gadgets that measure the effects of external impact on payloads and drag forces.
On the latter, Musk replied to a Twitter user who wanted a payload drag calculator. Musk says Cybertruck has the ability to change the pickup’s carrying capacity based on different scenarios. He added that the EV pickup will also be able to show real-time changes in speed in maximum acceleration, braking, cornering, slope and distance. This calculator device will further consider altitude changes, the quality of cargo or towing objects and the resistance effect on the specified route.
The Tesla CEO seems to be very proud of Cybertruck’s upcoming active ride height and damping system, which he explicitly calls a “game change” for pickups. It is a little regrettable, however, that he did not add any other details.
Asked how the car’s appearance would be transformed into a mass production scale at the launch, Musk said the final version looked “a little bit better.” He also clarified some of the confusion about size in previous tweets, noting that the electric pickup would be nearly 82 inches wide. According to Musk, either version of Cybertruck will be equipped with what he describes as a “laser blade lamp.”
With More than a year to go before Cybertruck is produced, you’re still likely to hear more about the new car from Musk.
