The Cyberpunk that we deserve
Yesterday at the “street magic” show, Elon Musk presented the Tesla Cyber Truk, at Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne, California. After watching the show you are left with a funny feeling. Most of the auditory were certain that all of this is a really bad joke and that Elon will put up the REAL shit. But no.
So now we have the first electric truck that looks quite like the cars you drew when you were little. The inspiration for such a design came from the famed Lotus Esprit which appeared in the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me.
The whole presentation was made in a very dramatic way. Kinda “Now you see me” style. But the whole bad-ass tricks which were supposed to show how impossible it is to destroy the Cyber truck ended up with a couple of cracked windows. “ Well, maybe that was a little too hard ”, said Elon.
Fair enough for a starting price of $39,900. As far as specs are concerned, the truck will be available in three configurations. The cheapest version is a single motor and rear wheel drive model, has a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds and more than 250 miles of range. The middle version will be a dual-motor all-wheel drive, have a towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds and be able to travel more than 300 miles on a single charge. The dual motor AWD model is priced at $49,900. The third version will have three electric motors and all-wheel, a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds and battery range of more than 500 miles. This version, known as “tri motor” is priced at $69,900.
Tesla said customers can put down a $100 deposit. They’ll be able to complete their configuration as production nears in late 2021. Tri Motor AWD production is expected to begin in late 2022. You can pre order the punk-truck here.
