Tesla’s long-awaited electric pick-up is just around the corner. It will be presented at the end of this month, but thanks to Elon Musk we can already know some details. At the end of this month, on the 30th, one of the most anticipated events in recent years will take place. Finally, after almost a five-year delay, the Tesla Cybertruck will begin its commercial stage. Production of the first units has already started a long time ago, which has raised expectations even further. There are still many details to be confirmed, but now, thanks to Elon Musk, we can know such important issues as its weight and acceleration. The Cybertruck will show the world that both concepts are not at odds with each other.
Weight is the great enemy of cars and even more so for electric ones. It increases its consumption and hinders its performance, mainly acceleration. At no time have we thought that the Cybertruck was going to be a discreet car. From the beginning, since it was first seen at an event in 2019, it has been clear that its proportions will be exaggeratedly large. How much? Well, a few weeks ago we cleared up doubts thanks to an avid follower. With the ruler in hand and with a somewhat improvised measurement, we were able to know that the Tesla electric pick-up would be around two meters wide, without mirrors, while its length would reach 5.79 meters.
It’s 0 to 100 km/h anticipates great power with a Beast Mode
That is a lot of steel and it is clear if we pay attention to the last words of the company’s CEO. During an interview on Joe Rogan‘s show, a famous American YouTuber, the businessman brought up some technical aspects of his next gem. The weight will be between 6,000 and 7,000 pounds, between 2,720 and 3,175 kilograms. We imagine that this figure will vary depending on the mechanical configuration selected. The high-performance version could offer up to four electric motors, but the main cause of the excessive weight will be the battery. Its capacity is one of the best-kept data in the industry.
Despite that mass, the Cybetruck will be able to stand up to some of the fastest supercars on the planet. If we pay attention, once again, to the words of Elon Musk, the truck will be able to accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h (0 to 60 miles per hour) in less than three seconds. It is a truly impressive fact that encourages us to think of incredible power. This response from a standstill will only be achieved by activating Beast Mode. With it, the Cybertruck will be configured to deliver the wildest performance it is capable of displaying.
Little by little, more and interesting details of one of the most anticipated cars of recent years are emerging. Throughout this time we have been able to learn new and impressive qualities of the Cybertruck. From its body made of high-strength steel to the turning capacity of its four wheels. More recently we have been able to see his abilities off the asphalt, although he still has a lot to prove. Expectations are at an all-time high, as confirmed by estimated reservations. Not bad for a car with which, according to Musk, they could have “ dug their own grave .”
