First ride in the polarizing all-electric pickup
The Tesla Cybertruck caused quite a scene when it debuted a few weeks ago, and it has since been a hot topic especially in the automotive industry. Available in single-, dual-, and tri-motor configurations, the Tesla Cybertruck promises up to 500 miles (805 km) of range on a single charge. Unlike a traditional pickup, the Cybertruck has an angular look that gives it a super futuristic vibe, especially with its full-width headlights and roof-mounted lights.
During the reveal, Associate Online Editor Duncan Brady was one of the first journalists to ride in the Tesla Cybertruck and found that it rode well thanks to its compliant chassis. “I barely felt that speed bump,” Brady said. He also commented on the Cybertruck feeling huge on the road and the nose tucking down when you let off the gas to let the regenerative braking do its thing.
Like other Tesla models, the Cybertruck features a massive touchscreen as the centerpiece of the dash, and it has a new layout for the menus. The steering wheel is shaped more like an airplane yoke, and the rest of the interior has a granite- and marble-inspired look to it. There’s also a big glass roof and a lockable tonneau cover for the bed that rolls out to cover the bed.
If you’re interested in a Tesla Cybertruck, you can pre-order one now and put down a $100 USD deposit. The Cybertruck is made out of stainless steel and supposedly boasts armor glass windows. In its tri-motor configuration, Tesla says the Cybertruck can tow over 14,000 pounds (6,350 kg) when properly equipped.
