Tesla annnounces the Cybertruck

Tesla has taken the wraps off its all-electric Cybertruck which is a departure from the company’s electric SUVs and cars.

As Tesla puts it, the Cybertruck offers the utility of a truck but with the performance of a sports car by being able to go 0-60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds.

The vehicle offers up to 14,000 lbs towing capacity and can hold up to 3,500 lbs. The truck bed which Tesla calls the Cyber Vault is 6.5 ft.

There’s also a total of 100 cubic feet of storage throughout the vehicle including the Vault, frunk and sail pillars. The vehicle will also feature a 17-inch infotainment screen.

The suspension on the Cybertruck is 4″ in either direction and the body of the truck is made from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled Stainless Steel. Seating capacity is for up to 6 adults.

The range will depend on the model chosen and are as follows:

  • Single Motor RWD – 250 Miles Range (around 400 KM) – 7,500 LBs Towing Capacity – $39,900 USD (around $53,000 CAD)
  • Dual Motor AWD – 300 Miles Range (around 482 KM) – 10,000 LBs Towing Capacity – $49,900 USD (around $66,299 CAD)
  • Tri-Motor AWD – 500 Miles Range (around 804 KM) – 14,000 LBs Towing Capacity – $69,900 USD (around $92,872 CAD)

To add Full Self-Driving capabilities, it’s another $7,000 USD ($9,200 CAD). Tesla hasn’t announced official Canadian pricing but you can reserve your Cybertruck today with a $150 CAD ($100 USD) fully refundable deposit from the company’s website.

Production for the Tesla Cybertruck Single Motor and Dual Motor versions is set to begin in late 2021. While the Tri Motor version will begin production in late 2022.
