Today, Tesla Motors’ CEO Elon Musk revealed the Cybertruck, Tesla’s first electric pickup truck. The truck has a highly eccentric design, and even more to set it apart from its competitors than the other Tesla vehicles do.

What are the key things setting the Tesla Cybertruck apart from regular pickup trucks?

Vehicle specifications are dependent on configuration.

  • Stainless steel body.
  • During the reveal, the Cybertruck’s door was whacked with a sledgehammer and wasn’t dented.
  • 0-60mph acceleration time as quick as 2.9 seconds (for the tri-motor AWD configuration).

The Tesla Cybertruck received mixed responses from consumers, largely due to its eccentric chassis design. The truck has a high ground clearance of up to 16″ and an adjustable suspension so that you can set it to whichever height you need at the moment. It can also travel up to 500 miles per charge with the highest configuration, or 250 miles per charge with the lowest configuration and starts at $39,900.
