The Tesla Cybertruck is rumored to be a game-changing vehicle. The Cybertruck’s 6.5-foot bed has a garage door-style cover that opens at the push of a button. Its tailgate acts as a ramp and allows you to transport your cargo from one side of the truck to the other. CEO Elon Musk has said that he is considering installing solar panels on the bed cover, which should be able to provide fifteen miles of mileage per day.
Although the Tesla Cybertruck is not ready to hit the streets yet, the truck has many advantages that rival pickup trucks lack. The unibody design of the truck’s body makes it cheaper than other pickups. Its body is extremely durable and reportedly withstands two sledgehammer hits without showing any damage. With this feature, flying debris could be redirected away from cars, saving them the trouble of replacing their aging trucks.
The Cybertruck looks great, but what makes it so exciting? The truck has 100 cubic feet of lockable storage, is capable of hauling 7,500 lbs of cargo, and is even equipped with an onboard air compressor. The Cybertruck seats six passengers and features a custom interface. The car will be produced in Gigafactory Texas, which is still in development. But how will it work in practice? And what kind of future will it create? Is it really a game changer?
The company plans to unveil the truck on the Q4 earnings call, so we’ll have to wait and see. The Cybertruck looks different enough to attract truck buyers who would never otherwise buy a traditional truck. The angular seats and lines reminiscent of robot eyes are unique and striking, and the streamlined design fits with the overall design of the Tesla brand. While we’ll have to wait and see, it’s definitely worth a look.
