Tesla's Cybertruck Set to Roll Out After Delays

Tesla's Cybertruck Set to Roll Out After Delays

By Staff Writer, 05 December 2023

Tesla's highly-anticipated Cybertruck is poised to hit the roads after more than 130 days since the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer announced its completion at the Texas plant.

With the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck delivery event scheduled for Thursday (30/11), there remain significant uncertainties, including the pricing details and the recipients of this groundbreaking vehicle.

Marking Tesla's first passenger vehicle release since the debut of the Model Y in early 2020, the Cybertruck was unveiled by CEO Elon Musk in a November 2019 event.

The memorable moment included Musk's attempt to showcase the vehicle's durability by shattering the supposedly unbreakable glass.

Despite the earlier announcement that the base model would start at $39,900, the company has kept silent on pricing as Cybertruck displays emerge in Tesla stores across the United States.

The Tesla Cybertruck will be available in three configurations, including a single-motor rear-wheel version with a 250-mile range, 6.9-second acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour, and a $60,990 base price, set to launch in 2025.

The other options include a dual-motor all-wheel-drive variant, featuring an estimated 340-mile range, top speed of 112 mph, and a starting price of $79,990.

Additionally, there is the Cyberbeast, equipped with three motors, boasting an estimated 320-mile range, 845 horsepower, a 2.6-second acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour, a top speed of 130 mph, and an estimated price tag of $99,990. Both versions claim a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds.

Tesla also plans to offer a range extender, extending the all-wheel-drive version's estimated range to 470 miles and the Cyberbeast's to over 440 miles.

However, specific details about the range extender and its pricing remain undisclosed.

Elon Musk clarified post-event on X (formerly Twitter) that the range extender would be an "optional pack fitting in about 1/3 of the truck bed, leaving ample space for cargo. It is designed for extended journeys or towing heavy loads up mountains."
