According to recent reports, Tesla is planning to postpone the Cybertruck model until late 2023. As a result, the new pickup truck could be dubbed the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck. Tesla revealed the Cybertruck three years ago, and Elon Musk stated that production would begin in late 2021.
However, given the Covid-19 pandemic and a scarcity of electric chips, Musk recently stated that the future vehicle will not be available until the following year. To recap, the Tesla Cybertruck will compete against the new Ford F-150 Lightning, GMC Hummer EV, and Rivian R1T. Of course, Chevrolet and Ram will also introduce all-electric trucks in the coming months as well.
The upcoming 2024 Tesla Cybertruck is a game-changer, as it comes with a very odd appearance. This truck appears to have been taken from the 80s science fiction film. The Cybertruck model wears stainless steel and it looks very sharp. The vehicle’s body, including glass, is bulletproof, because why not.
According to Tesla officials, this truck is one of the strongest in the world. It looks powerful, indeed. Interestingly, Tesla opted for the exoskeleton rather than a regular body-on-frame structure. One of the advantages is the space for batteries and other stuff. The stainless material will also avoid long-term corrosion, but Tesla will not offer paint jobs of any kind.
Tesla Cybertruck Interior
The cabin of the new 2024 Tesla Cybertruck is similar to that of the Tesla Model 3. As a result, there is a striking dashboard with a huge touchscreen option. A squared-off steering wheel with an illuminated display is also included with the Cybertruck. However, we don’t know if every variant will include a large 17-inch touchscreen in the dashboard’s horizontal center. The Tesla Cybertruck will seat up to six people and have a volume of 100 cubic feet. Lastly, this truck will offer self-driving capabilities, like other Tesla models.
Driving Range, Towing Capacity
The new 2024 Tesla Cybertruck, is an all-electric model with three electric motors. The base single-motor model has the rear-wheel-drive system, whilst the two and three-motor vehicles have all-wheel drive. With a single motor system, Tesla boasts that the new Cybertruck can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds and reach 110 mph.
However, with a dual-motor, it will supposedly accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.5 and it will have a top speed of 120 mph. With three motors, it will reportedly accelerate to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 mph. According to Tesla, the maximum towing capacity is 7500, 10,000, and 14,000 pounds. Depending on a chosen variant, the Cybertruck will provide from 250 to 500 miles of driving range.
2024 Tesla Cybertruck Price, Release Date
The entry-level single-motor model will cost $40,000. However, the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck with a dual-motor setup will start at almost $50,000. Lastly, the most powerful model with three motors will cost around $70k. The sales will begin later in 2023, according to the most recent reports.
