If you have nothing better on the schedule today, go ahead and daydream about what you’d do with a brand-spankin’ new Tesla Cybertruck. You can’t buy one just yet, but they’ll let you reserve one for a mere $100. Yay!
The Tesla Cybertruck is projected to be ready for ordering for late 2021 or 2022, depending on the model. That is only for configuring the Cybertruck for your order, it is not taking delivery. And as things always go, that date is likely to move farther away, not sooner. But hey, it is only $100 to put an imaginary one on hold today. Fun. And it is fully refundable.
The Tesla Cybertruck goes 60mph in 6.5 seconds, which is about the speed of a Chevy Silverado. You weren’t looking for a sportscar speed anyway, right? It’s a pickup truck. Sort of.
This is an electric car, so there is a range of how far this vehicle can go on a charge. For this Cybertruck it is 250+ miles on the single motor model. That should be plenty for hauling things around the city. If you plan on going on a tour, you’ll need to make sure there are some Tesla charging options along the way.
There have been many very amazing and mind-bending claims made by Elon Musk and Tesla about how much this little vehicle can tow. That number is 7,500 pounds for the single motor RWD model. That is comparable to the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but about half of what the Silverado 3500 HD can tow, to give you some perspective. However, order the Tri-Motor AWD and now you’re talking 2.5 seconds on the 0-60mph and over 14,000 pounds towing capacity.
But it’s fun to dream the big dream and be on board with the creation of a brand-new vehicle, right? Just a side note: There is a driverless option for only $7,000. Oh, yeah! So, curl up on the couch, shut your eyes and your Cybertruck will be here in only about 2 years.
