13 more or less known facts about Cybertruck by Tesla
Tesla, led by Elon Musk, introduced its new action a few days ago. This time it is not just any electric car that would fit perfectly into the unified fleet of the company. Tesla introduced an electric pick-up called Cybertruck, which differs from the classic Tesel in virtually everything – be it controversial design, the materials used, or its usability. However, it is still an electric car whose specifications can surprise you. Let's take a look at 13 things to know about Tesla's Cybertruck.

It is absolutely clear to me that in this respect many of you will oppose me. At first glance, Cybertruck's design may seem ugly and unsuccessful. If you look at it from the second page, but it is a brand new and simple design, thanks to which Tesla moved away from a dozen design of classic pickups and generally other cars. Cybertruck has no intricate features and is designed to be as simple as possible. And who knows, perhaps this is a revolution in car design.

Cybertruck at first glance looks strange, no doubt. Very special, and positively, is the steel structure of the entire colossus. The Cybertruck chassis is made of ultra-hard 30x cold rolled steel. This material is also used by SpaceX in its space rockets. The steel construction can perfectly resist various forms of damage, which was also seen in the performance itself, when the Cybertruck door was struck by a large hammer.
At Cybertruck's introduction, Elon Musk decided to test the hardness of his glasses. So he summoned a man who had only one task – to break glass using an iron ball. Many people did not expect it, but the Cybertruck had really broken the glass. Hard to say whether or not Musk was expecting it – his reaction in the form of "Oh my fu *** ng god" was definitely worth it. However, many people think that this is just a form of promotion, since bad advertising is also an advertisement. Musk later said he would take care of the problem.
Cybertruck will be available in three versions. These variants differ in the number of electric motors and driven axle. The cheapest alternative is the one with a single engine and rear-wheel drive. The Golden Middle Road is available with two engines and four-wheel drive. The top and most expensive alternative has three engines together with four-wheel drive.
For something as huge as Cybertruck, you would hardly have expected such a dizzying speed. However, the opposite is true and it should be noted that Cybertruck gets from 0-100 km / h in just 2.9 seconds. During the performance, a video was running in the background, in which Cybertruck competes in the 0-100 km / h discipline together with the Porsche 911. Cybertruck was the unexpected winner.
It should be noted that Cybertruck is more or less a utility vehicle. It has the task of getting you from point A to point B, but at the same time it is much more expected. And according to the specifications, it looks like he'll do well. Cybertruck can carry more than 6 tons of cargo behind and can carry up to 1.5 tons of cargo on its back.
The maximum range of the Cybertruck also varies according to the variant. If you would go for the cheapest variant with one engine and rear-wheel drive, you would drive about 400 km on a single charge. In the middle version with two engines and AWD drive, the maximum range is 480 kilometers. The top-of-the-range version with three engines and all-wheel drive can cover over 800 kilometers on a single charge.
The rear hull, which can hold almost 3 cubic meters of cargo, will be lockable. In addition to this hull you also get its cover, which can withstand the weight of man. In harsh conditions, you can use the Cybertruck's back cover as a lookout tower, or sit on it and enjoy the countryside.

Adaptive air suspension
Tesla created the Cybertruck so that it can easily withstand bad terrain. A special adaptive air suspension has been developed to increase or lower the vehicle by up to 10 centimeters. This will make Cybertruck both very comfortable and easy to adapt to the terrain it travels.
Along with the Cybertruck performance, Tesla supporters also enjoyed a Cyberquad performance at the very end. It is an electric quad bike that looks like a Cybertruck. However, customers will not be able to purchase it separately. If they wish, they can add it to their Cybertruck as part of the paid option. This quadricycle easily climbs the Cybertruck hull, making it the perfect choice for all adventurers.
When configuring the Cybertruck, the customer will also be able to select the option with solar panels that will be placed in the hull cover. With these solar panels, Cybertruck will be able to get up to 25 kilometers of extra range. But this is probably not all, as Tesla said there will also be an option with additional solar panels that can be swung open. Thanks to them, the range of Cybertruck could be further increased.
Although Tesla did not mention much about the interior of Cybertruck, we already know that it will certainly not be anything wrong. Elon Mush said at the show that Cybertruck will have 110 V / 220 V outlets, so you can connect virtually anything to Cybertruck.
Price and launch date
If you would like to buy a Cybertruck, you will have to wait for its delivery. Orders are already running and according to Twitter by Elon Musk, about 200,000 Cybertrucks have already been ordered, but production will not start before the end of 2021.

The cheapest one-engine and rear-wheel drive option at $ 39.990, the middle variant with AWD drive and two engines at $ 49.990 and the top variant with three engines, four-wheel drive and a range of up to 800 kilometers comes at $ 69.990.
