Elon Musk has finally unveiled the pick-up of Tesla and this is not what you expected…
Finally here is the pick-up Tesla
We knew since some time, the presentation of the pick-up Tesla was imminent. This last link in the chain that would enable the manufacturer in california to compete with the Ford F-150, great leader in the United States. Yet, despite all this preparation, there was once again amazed : nobody could predict a design so sharp, worthy of a science fiction movie. Even the name is futuristic : Cybertruck.
However, it is not a concept car : this exact model will be released in 2021. Moreover, it is possible to book the car online and the backlog would be already 200 000 requests ! But why such a risk-taking aesthetic ? On the one hand to stand out, as is often the case with Tesla. On the other hand, in order to express the robustness of the vehicle.
Ultra-resistant and 100% electric
In fact, it is the first selling point of the Tesla Cybertruck. Measuring 5.88 metres long and 1.90 meter high (6 seats), it has bulletproof glass and a body made of stainless steel…the same as the rocket SpaceX ! What withstand all the shocks that may occur on a pick-up truck, or even gunshot wounds. And yes, it is well in America !
The second selling point of the pick-up Cybertruck, it is obviously its electric motor. Proposed in three different versions including two with all-wheel drive AWD, it reached 800 km of autonomy with a maximum speed of 209 km/h and a 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds. It can tow up to 6.3 tonnes not to mention the 1600 pounds of payload in the truck electrical stream. Price : 39900 to $ 69900 $, or 36000 € to 63000 € (it will probably count a little more in France).
