The Tesla Cybertruck can compete with all of the most well-liked pickup trucks, despite the fact that it seems to have been brought by an alien civilization. The stainless steel body of Tesla’s all-electric car, which has sharp edges and is resistant to dents and scratches, makes it incredibly durable. The Cybertruck features all-wheel drive, a projected driving range of more than 500 miles, and a towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds. The least expensive model has a starting price of $39,900, but only for the most expensive variant. Of course, there are still a lot of unresolved issues around the Cybertruck, like the precise launch date. On April 7, 2022, Tesla CEO Elon Musk reaffirmed his commitment to releasing the truck in 2023 despite earlier production schedule setbacks.
What has changed for 2023?
The pickup truck, one of the most popular body types in America, is now included in the Tesla product line. Given how well trucks sell in this country, the Cybertruck offers the company a potentially strong seller and has extremely good metrics for both an EV and a pickup. The Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, and the Ford F-150 Lightning will be its primary rivals at first. By 2024, Ram says it will have an electric vehicle (EV) with a truck bed, and Chevy says it will soon have an electric Silverado.
EV Performance, Power, and Motor
The Cybertruck has three electric motors available, not just one, nor even two. All-wheel drive is a feature of the two- and three-motor versions, while rear-wheel drive is all that the single-motor truck possesses. It will go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and have a top speed of 110 mph, claims Tesla. It is anticipated that the dual-motor Cybertruck will reach 60 mph in just 4.5 ticks and reach a top speed of 120 mph. Those looking for the maximum level of performance will be drawn to the three-motor version, which Tesla promises will virtually teleport from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds (! ), with a top speed of 130 mph. An adjustable air suspension that can be raised or lowered instantaneously and provides up to 16 inches of ground clearance is a standard feature on all Cybertrucks. With its 35-degree approach and 28-degree departure angles, the Tesla truck could prove to be a powerful off-road vehicle.
Towing and payload capacity
If the Cybertruck can tow as much as Tesla claims it can, it will have a greater maximum rating than popular rivals like the Ram 1500. The maximum tow ratings of the single- and dual-motor Teslas are 7,500 and 10,000 pounds, respectively, while those with a third motor will be able to tow an astounding 14,000 pounds. Additionally, the 6.5-foot cargo bed of each Cybertruck has a weight capacity of 3500 pounds.
Range, Battery Life, and Charging
Tesla’s electrified truck’s batteries were kept a secret, along with their size. However, a 250 kW charging connection will be included with each model. Of course, it will also have access to the massive Supercharger network provided by Tesla. According to Tesla, a single motor can travel more than 250 miles, dual motors can travel more than 300 miles, and the top-tier tri-motor system can travel more than 500 miles on a single charge. The actual driving range varies depending on how many motors are employed.
Real MPGE and fuel economy
Since there are no official ratings for the Cybertruck, we are forced to rely solely on Tesla’s initial projections. We’ll have to wait till we get our hands on a real production car before we test its ambitious maximum driving range in real driving scenarios.

Interior, comfort, and cargo
People who thought the interior of the Tesla Model 3 was minimalist would have the same reaction when they see the Cybertruck’s bare cabin. Although many typical features and settings are yet unknown, the initial images depict a dashboard that resembles a slab and is fully dominated by one big touchscreen. The squared-off steering wheel appears to have a lit display, but nothing has been confirmed. The Cybertruck’s qualities are completed by its six-person seating capacity and 100 cubic foot cargo bed. It also has a smart slide-out tailgate that serves as a ramp for hauling motorcycles and four-wheelers.
