The brand-new 2021 Tesla Cybertruck caused a huge splash after Tesla revealed it. There are a couple of reasons why Cybertruck became an instant hit. Besides its impressive power and astonishing acceleration, Cybertruck comes with a very odd-looking design. Whatsoever, you will find zero rounded surfaces, stainless steel bed and unique shape.
According to Tesla, this truck will offer an astonishing driving range and a lot of standard features. First speculations wrote about Cybertruck as an expensive model but Elon Musk confirmed the base variant will cost “only” $40k. Here’s everything you need to know about new Cybertruck.
2021 Tesla Cybertruck Body Is Made of Stainless Steel
You either like new 2021 Tesla Cybertruck or you don’t, there’s no in-between. We think Tesla did an amazing job in terms of practicality and aerodynamics. Sure, truck’s shape and styling are very strange and it departs from the styling of a regular pickup truck. However, Cybertruck won’t lack uniqueness and it will make a real stand-out on the crowded roads.
A whole body is made of stainless steel. On top of that, safety is amazing thanks to durable metal. Whatsoever, on Cybertruck’s debut, people tried to break the door with a sledgehammer but nothing happened. Even a 9mm bullet couldn’t damage the bodywork. On the other hand, glass is not durable so it could be shattered.
Just like the exterior, the interior of the 2021 Tesla Cybertruck is also full of unconventional cues and features. Again, you will find plenty of unique touches so we must credit Tesla for that. The interior seems huge, with a room for six passengers. A massive panoramic sunroof looks amazing, while the rest of the cabin is pretty minimalistic. You will find few knobs and buttons but most of the controls are operated via touchscreen.
A large infotainment display is available and is placed lower than usual. It may look strange but it will provide the visibility for sure. The steering wheel looks like a video game controller. Whatsoever, its rectangle shape is strange and the top portion that connects two vertical sides is not there. Have in mind that the things could change for Cybertruck when it goes into production.
2021 Tesla Cybertruck Specs
According to Tesla, its new model will offer three different performance versions. The 2021 Tesla Cybertruck comes with the base single-motor rear-wheel-drive version. Moreover, a dual-motor all-wheel-drive variant is available as well. Lastly, there is a tri-motor all-wheel-drive model that sits on top of the range. The base trim will provide 250 miles of driving range and it will hit from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds.
The mid-range version will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and it will deliver 300 miles of range. Finally, the range-topping tri-motor version needs only 2.9 seconds to reach 60 mph and 500 miles of the fully electric range sounds astonishing. As for the towing capacity, Cybetruck is rated from 7,500 pounds to 14,000 pounds
Price and Release Date
The price of the upcoming 2021 Tesla Cybertruck starts at $40,000. First reports predicted significantly higher price but that will not happen. Elon Musk confirmed this price so we think the price is more than affordable. On the other hand, the range-topping model will cost almost $80,000. Tesla will launch its first-ever pickup truck in the second half of 2021.
