Electric car manufacturer Tesla unveiled its newest release last week after a 7-year wait to reveal a futuristic, metal box-like offering. Named Cybertruck, the company boasts the vehicle has 'better utility than a truck' but with more 'performance than a sports car' and named several forward thinking materials and design aspects used in its creation. The all-electric model features a utilitarian design and an outer shell made from stainless steel to create a smooth monochrome exoskeleton. Teamed with Tesla armour glass, the car is designed for passenger safety and long term durability as well as a sleek modern look.
The inside of the car includes a minimalistic aesthetic with seating room for six people, a 17” touchscreen and additional storage. Additional storage is available on the outside of the car with 100 cubic feet of lockable storage that has space for car accessories including Tesla's electric ATV named Cyberquad and spare tires.
With performance features including adjustable air suspension, a towing capability of over 6,000kg and nearly 2,000 kilograms of payload capacity, Tesla heralds the Cybertruck as 'the most powerful tool we have ever built.' Inspired by combing rugged elements of heavy vechiles with a more refined style that has become synonymous with Tesla, the car aims to be a versatile addition to everyday life.
A Single Motor RWD starts at £31,000 and is available for pre-order now at tesla.com. Production nears in late 2021, for the single motor and is expected to begin again in late 2022 for the Tri Motor AWD.
