The Tesla Cybertruck will be another curious vehicle Elon Musk is working on. However, some are focusing more on how it will visually look. Rather than get into that, the Tesla CEO revealed new details on what the Cybertruck will have to offer.
Musk revealed new details on the Cybertruck on Twitter recently, appending what onlookers have already gathered thus far. Among the updates, the Tesla CEO gave the vehicle's dimensions and a host of other gadgets covering concerns on the payload, towing, and more.
As most know, the payload will have a considerable effect on how it can be handled. Probably aware that this could factor in the stored energy of the Cybertruck, Musk explained that the amount of load that the vehicle will handle will vary. Regardless, Musk bats that this is a function to expect from the Tesla Cybertruck and something that could show real-time changes too. That includes max acceleration, braking, cornering, speed on gradient, and range. This set of calculator gadgetry will further factor in elevation changes, cargo or towing mass and drag impact on a specified route, CNet reported.
Other than that, Musk also emphasized on the active ride height and damping systems that the Tesla Cybertruck will be featuring. He considers these as game-changers. With nothing else to reveal, Musk addressed worries on the overall aesthetics. Likely aware that not most are impressed with the current look, the Tesla CEO just responded by saying that the final version of the vehicle will be "slightly better." He also clarified that the vehicle will measure close to 82 inches and that every single version comes with a standard upper "laser blade lights."
Other than that, more features should come moving forward. Production for the Tesla Cybertruck is still over a year away, probably offering a glimmer of hope that its design may still improve. The first models with a trimotor setup are scheduled to start production in late 2021, while less powerful models won't being production until 2022.
As mentioned in a previous post, the Tesla Cybertruck continues to be a big mystery, with glimpses of it circling social media. Musk was spotted together with Jay Leno late last month, probably hinting that the Tesla Cybertruck will appear at the celebrity's show.
To refresh folks who may not have kept tabs with it, the Tesla Cybertruck is one of the upcoming lines built on an exterior shell made tailored to be durable and protect passengers. It has a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton composed of an Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin to Tesla armor glass.
