Elon Musk unveils Tesla’s Cybertruck
Elon Musk unveils Tesla’s Cybertruck: Elon Musk opened the figurative screen on Thursday evening to unveil Tesla’s new Cybertruck. It is the fourth model in the Tesla range and is only targeted toward the highest sales segment in the United States automotive market.
It’s an all-new electric pickup truck that looks like a hybrid of the DeLorean from “Back to the Future” and a desk lamp, at a flashy event at the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne (Los Angeles County) on Thursday night.
- Starting at $ 39,900, the single motor model comes with rear-wheel drive, 250-mile range, and a 7,500-pound capacity. For another $ 10,000 you can get dual motors, all-wheel drive, 300 miles range and 10,000 pounds tow capacity.
- The electronic pickup truck is capable of very dazzling: it can seat six people, is claimed to be bulletproof (both body and glass), and comes with a ride height. However, Tesla insisted on calling it a “vault”, it is 6.5 feet tall. A board consists of an air compressor and an outlet that allows users to charge their Laptop or any of electronic devices from the battery pack and grid.
- The tri-motor AWD Cybertruck, meanwhile, tops out at nearly $70,000, promising a 500-mile range and 14,000-pound towing*—for all your RV-carrying needs. Oh, and it can travel from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.
Available now to pre-order for $100, production is scheduled to begin in “late 2021,” with the tri-motor option expected sometime after 2022.

But the incident turned out to be a bit uncomfortable when the CEO invited lead designer Franz von Holzhausen to show off the power of Tesla’s “Armor Glass” by throwing a baseball-sized metal ball into the driver-side window.
“Oh my f***ing God,” Musk said, laughing. “Well, maybe that was a little too hard.”
If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again—on the rear passenger window.
“It didn’t go through,” the entrepreneur, always looking on the bright side, said of the second failed attempt. “Room for improvement.”
“We threw wrenches, we threw everything,” he said on stage, as reported by TechCrunch. “We even literally threw a kitchen sink at the glass, and it didn’t break. For a little weird reason it broke now, I don’t know why.
“We’ll fix it in post,” Musk added, laughing—before moving on with his presentation.
Musk said the production of the low-cost model is expected to begin in 2021. The Tri-Motor model is expected to follow in 2022. Tesla has repeatedly failed to provide the model with Musk’s forecast dates, and Musk acknowledges that he “has a problem with time” and has issued an optimistic deadline for delivery of the vehicles.
Musk also revealed a Tesla electric all-terrain vehicle at the event, designed to roll into the Cybertruck. He did not specify when it would be available to consumers.
