Tesla has finally unveiled its mega-hyped electric pickup truck which the company has called the Tesla Cybertruck, which starts at $39,900 and over 250 miles of range. There are two other models with more power, more range, and higher prices.
Elon Musk unveiled the new Tesla Cybertruck at its Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne, California, with the Cybertruck made from cold-rolled steel, armored glass, and adaptive air suspension.
The cheapest Tesla Cybertruck costs $39,900 and has a single motor with rear wheel drive, a towing capacity of 7500 pounds and over 250 miles of range. The next Cybertruck costs $49,900 and is a dual-motor AWD model, it is an all-wheel drive with a towing capacity of over 10,000 pounds and has over 300 miles of range.
But the flagship Telsa Cybertruck is a higher-end model with three motors, all-wheel drive, towing capacity of 14,000 pounds and range of over 500 miles. Tesla calls this the "tri-motor" model and has a price of $69,900.
Tesla bragged about the acceleration of its new Cybertruck, which can beat a Porsche 911 off the line -- an impressive feat. The flagship Cybertruck can go from 0-60 miles per hour in under 2.9 seconds thanks to its tri-motor, while the single-motor Cybertruck can do 0-60 in less than 6.5 seconds.
You'll need to put down just a $100 deposit, with production kicking off in late 2021 -- while the tri-motor Cybertruck begins production by the end of 2022.
