Since being unveiled in 2019, there are few electric vehicles as hyped as Tesla’s beastly-looking Cybertruck. That hype is partially based on the pickup’s boxy, Warthog-like design and Elon Musk’s reliably rabid fan base, but superficialities aside, there’s also lots of eyebrow-raising stuff going on under the hood.
Tesla is promising some impressive range out of its super truck. According to the company’s website, the most expensive, tri-motor variant of the Cybertruck will have 500 miles of range or more on a single charge.
Obviously the EPA will ultimately have to assess whether that’s true, but even the suggestion is enough to turn heads.
This is Tesla’s first ever pickup truck, and by virtue of being number one, it’s got a lot to prove. While there are other competitors incoming, like the new all-electric Hummer, and an electric Ford F-150, arguably none carry a fanbase as fervent as Tesla’s. Also noteworthy: none of the recent entrants have armored glass.
