Elon Musk introduced the Cybertruck armored electric pickup truck, but not everything went according to plan
Tesla CEO Ilon Musk introduced the Cybertruck electric pickup. Tesla on its website broadcast the presentation, which took place on the evening of November 21 in Los Angeles, writes Meduza.
Cybertruck will be available in three versions with a single-charge range of 250 miles (400 kilometers), 300 miles (480 kilometers) and 500 miles (800 kilometers), Musk said. Different versions differ in the number of engines - from one to three. The futuristic design of the car was partially created under the influence of the James Bond movie “The Spy Who Loved Me,” Musk noted on Twitter. Earlier, the head of Tesla talked about the impact on the appearance of the pickup of the film "Blade Runner".
The car provides maximum protection for passengers - its body is made of ultra-hard cold-rolled stainless steel, and the windows are armored using the company's own technology. The metal of the car withstands shelling from an 9-mm pistol, the presentation said. However, when Musk asked the assistant to throw a metal ball into the glass of the car, it cracked.
Pickup prices range from 39900 dollars. The most advanced version costing 69900 dollars accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2,9 seconds. Its carrying capacity is up to 3500 pounds (almost 1600 kilograms). All versions are equipped with autopilot and auto parking function. Musk emphasized the phenomenal power of the Cybertruck, showing a video in which he easily drags a powerful Ford F150 pickup truck while he tries to drive the other way.
In addition to the pickup, Musk demonstrated an electric ATV. It can fit in and recharge from the Cybertruck.
The company has already opened pre-orders for Cybertruck on its website, but its production will only begin in 2021.
