Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla Cybertruck Price Specifications

The Tesla Cybertruck looks like it was dropped off by an alien race, but it has the capabilities to challenge all of the top-selling pickup trucks. With a sharp-edged exterior that is made of scratch- and dent-resistant stainless steel, Tesla’s all-electric truck is seriously tough. Along with available all-wheel drive, the Cybertruck can tow up to 14,000 pounds and has an estimated driving range of 500-plus miles.

While that applies only to the most expensive model, the cheapest one starts at $39,900. Of course, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the Cybertruck, including when it will officially go on sale. Tesla has delayed the truck’s production timeline several times already, but on April 7, 2022, CEO Elon Musk again promised that the truck is coming and will be out in 2023.

What’s New for 2023?

Tesla is expanding its lineup to include one of the most popular body styles in America—the pickup truck. With seriously impressive stats for both an EV and a pickup, the Cybertruck gives the company a potentially strong seller given how well trucks sell in this country. However, it’ll have to compete with the Ford F-150 Lightning, the GMC Hummer EV, the Rivian R1T right out of the gate. Chevy is also planning an electric Silverado in the next couple of years, and Ram says it’ll have an EV with a truck bed by 2024.

Elon Musk confirmed the Cybertruck is on track to start production before mid-2023, and deliveries may begin soon after. Cybertruck sales appear to have been suspended in Europe and Asia, meaning only North Americans can place a new order right now. Elon Musk says that the Cybertruck will go on sale in 2023, though when exactly is still unclear

Tesla Cybertruck Release Date

Tesla was originally set to begin production on the Cybertruck in late 2021, but later delayed that until sometime in late 2022. After rumors that the Cybertruck was being pushed back again, Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla would not be launching any cars in 2022. That mans the Cybertruck won’t be arriving until 2023 at the earliest.

Initial delays were pinned on the supply chain issues, which have been affecting the automotive industry en masse. Elon Musk said Tesla couldn’t build enough 4680 battery cells for the Cybertruck, while the steel frame was said to require a brand new casting machine to be developed.

Meanwhile Tesla’s has been open about its priorities, saying that it wouldn’t begin Cybertruck production until the Texas Gigafactory had begun production on new Model Y. This only kicked off in March 2022, though it now means Tesla is free to prep for Cybertruck production.

Elon Musk says that Tesla wants to have completed Cybertruck development before the end of 2022, ready for production to begin in 2023. He later announced that the Cybertruck would indeed arrive in 2023, and in July 2022 confirmed the truck was on track to be in production by mid-2023. Barring any unforeseen delays, the Cybertruck could hit the roads soon after.

However good luck getting one if you don’t have an order in already, with Musk claiming the company has so many orders it might take three years to get through them all.

Meanwhile a new report claims that a smaller version of the truck may be unveiled, though it’s unclear whether it will be any different to the original Cybertruck model.

Tesla Cybertruck Price

Tesla recently pulled a bunch of Cybertruck information from its website, including specifications and pricing. However, we still know what Tesla used to say the truck would cost.

The single-motor Cybertruck, which is the last one expected to go into production is set to start at $39,990 — $5,000 cheaper than the cheapest Model 3. Meanwhile the dual motor model, complete with all-wheel drive, was set to cost $49,990.

The tri-motor Cybertruck, which was originally the flagship model, is set to clock in at $69,990. The newly-announced quad-motor variant’s pricing is still unknown, since it never appeared on the Tesla website.

All four models will come with Basic Autopilot as standard, but the Full Self Driving option will be available for an additional fee. That package currently sells for $12,000, though we expect the Cybertruck will also be eligible for the $199-a-month FSD subscription.

However, considering Full Self Driving Autopilot’s price has risen by $6,000 since July 2019, it’s pretty likely that more price  hikes are on the way. Elon Musk himself has said as much(opens in new tab) on more than one occasion.

The Cybertruck was also supposed to be coming to the U.K.. However, Musk said that the truck is currently being built to U.S. specifications, since trying to make it suitable for every country would be impossible. U.K. pricing and launch details are still a complete unknown.

Model Price
Single Motor $39,900
Dual Motor $49,900
Tri Motor $69,900

The Cybertruck will be available in three different configurations, which are all based on the number of electric motors each has. While all-wheel drive is standard on all but the single-motor version, each additional motor means quicker acceleration, longer driving range, and greater towing capacity.

Tesla Cybertruck Motor and Power

The Cybertruck is available with not just one, not just two, but three electric motors. While the single-motor truck has rear-wheel drive, the two- and three-motor models have all-wheel drive. Tesla claims it’ll go from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and top out at 110 mph. The dual-motor Cybertruck will reportedly reach 60 mph in just 4.5 ticks and have a top speed of 120 mph.

Those looking for the ultimate performance will appreciate the three-motor model, which Tesla says will essentially teleport from zero to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds (!) with a top speed of 130 mph. All Cybertrucks have an adjustable air suspension that can be raised or lowered on the fly and provides up to 16 inches of ground clearance. Add that to its 35-degree approach and 28-degree departure angles and the Tesla pickup could prove to be a formidable off-road machine.

Tesla Cybertruck Performance

According to tesla the single-motor Cybertruck can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in under 6.5 seconds. That’s pretty sluggish by Tesla standard, but this is a truck and their bulk typically stops any super-fast acceleration.

Though this makes performance of the higher-end models that bit more impressive. The dual motor Cybertruck can make it to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, while the tri-motor model can do it in 2.9 seconds. That’s amazingly quick for such a large vehicle, and is likely to give some other, less bulky electric cars, a run for their money.

Plus, being a truck, the Cybertruck will be able to tow 7,500 lbs with a single motor, 10,000 pounds with two, and 14,000 pounds on the tri-motor model.

We have no details for the quad-motor variant at all, though we expect that extra motor may be put to use with additional acceleration and towing capacity.

Tesla Cybertruck Towing and Payload Capacity

If the Cybertruck can really tow as much as Tesla claims, it will have a higher maximum rating than popular alternatives such as the Ram 1500. While the single- and dual-motor Teslas have a maximum tow rating of 7500 and 10,000 pounds, respectively, models with a third motor will be able to pull a whopping 14,000 pounds. Every Cybertruck can also haul 3500 pounds in its 6.5-foot cargo bed.

Tesla Cybertruck Charging and Battery

Tesla didn’t reveal the size of the batteries that will power its electrified pickup. However, every model will have a 250-kW charging cable. Of course, it will also have access to Tesla’s vast network of Superchargers. Its driving range varies with the number of motors, but Tesla claims the single motor has a range of 250-plus miles, the dual motors boast 300-plus miles of range, and the top-tier tri-motor setup should provide more than 500 miles on a single charge.

Tesla Cybertruck Range

Like many cars, the range of the Cybertruck is going to vary based on the model you end up buying. Tesla previously confirmed that the single motor model will offer 250 miles of range — the bare minimum Elon Musk claims he will let Tesla offer.

Meanwhile, upgrading to the dual motor model ups that range to 300 miles, which is a more impressive-sounding figure. The tri-motor model is also expected to offer over 500 miles of range on a single charge, which is absolutely ludicrous. However, this figure was announced before Musk cancelled the Model S Plaid, declaring that the car’s 500+ miles of estimated range was too much. So it’s unclear what this means for the Cybertruck.

Unfortunately the quad-motor model’s range is a completely unknown, and since the extra motor requires more energy we’re not entirely sure whether it will be more or less than the tri-motor model is supposed to offer.

Tesla Cybertruck Interior

We haven’t seen a huge amount of stuff on the inside of the Cybertruck. But early previews show that the interior would be sticking to the Tesla formula we’ve seen in other cars — particularly the particularly-spacious Model X.

However, everything is a lot more angular, befitting a vehicle with as many straight edges as the Cybertruck. There’s room for up to six people, and the steering wheel is the same butterfly yoke design we’ve seen in the latest Model S and Model X cars. The dash is as minimalist as any other Tesla, albeit with a marble-effect instead of something more traditional. The Cybertruck will also be able to seat up to six people, and its 6.4-foot cargo bed offers 100 cubic feet of volume. It also has a nifty slide-out tailgate that doubles as a ramp to load four-wheelers and motorcycles.

The infotainment screen takes center stage, naturally, and like the Model 3 and Model Y is looks like this screen will be the only thing displaying any information.

Tesla Cybertruck Exterior

The Tesla Cybertruck has the potential to be a very big deal in the world of electric trucks, which is down to the fact Tesla holds so much sway over the market. While it’s funky design may be off-putting to some, it’s the kind of things that is likely to appeal to people who want to be able to stand out – whether they already drive a truck or not.

Fastest Charging Electric Cars 2022

However, the constant delays do not bode well for the Cybertruck’s chances. The electric truck industry has already started heating up, with the Rivian R1T and GMC Hummer EV already hitting the streets, and the Ford F-150 Lightning coming very soon.

One could argue that they don’t have the same sway as Tesla, especially where range and technology are concerned. But the longer people have to wait for the Tesla Cybertruck, the more time the competition has chance to close the gap.

Infotainment and Connectivity

As with most of the interior, specific details about the Cybertruck’s infotainment system are largely a mystery. However, we do know every model will have a big 17-inch touchscreen that is horizontally mounted in the center of the dashboard.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Every model will feature Tesla’s controversial self-driving Autopilot feature, and the company says it will offer a Full Self-Driving option for $7000. We also expect other driver-assistance technology to be available. For more information about the Cybertruck’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Tesla provides a comprehensive warranty on its current models, however, it doesn’t include any complimentary maintenance.

Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles

Powertrain warranty covers eight years, regardless of miles

No complimentary scheduled maintenance
