Nov. 22, 2019

Tesla has unveiled the company’s first electric pickup truck called “Cybertruck.” According to an article in The Verge, the truck will come in three versions with 250 miles, 300 miles, and 500 miles of range. Pricing will begin at $39,900, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, although the trucks won’t be available for purchase until 2021.

The truck can seat six adults, according to Tesla. The body is made of 30X cold-rolled stainless steel. The payload has a 3,500-pound capacity, with 100 cubic feet of storage space. The truck’s vault length is 6.5 feet, and it will have 4-inch suspension in either direction. A 17-inch touchscreen sits in the center of the dashboard. 

Musk unveiled a Class 8 electric truck two years ago, saying it would be in production in 2019. Published reports indicate it will not be available this year.

Three versions of the truck will be available:

  • Single motor rear-wheel drive with 250 miles of range, 7,500-pound towing capacity, and 0–60 mph capabilities in under 6.5 seconds, for $39,900

  • Dual motor all-wheel drive with 300 miles of range, 10,000-pound towing capacity, and 0–60 mph in under 4.5 seconds for $49,900

  • Triple motor all-wheel drive with 500 miles of range, 14,000-pound towing capacity, and 0–60 mph in under 2.9 seconds for $69,900.
