The Tesla Cybertruck will be unveiled, in its series version, by the end of the year. It was Elon Musk who announced it via Twitter, in response to a specific question: the preview of the expected electric pick-up will arrive “in about a month”. Therefore, during the next month of December. A ‘Christmas present’, even if it will be necessary to wait until 2021 for it to arrive on the market.
The production version of the Tesla Cybertruck, the first pickup from the house controlled by Elon Musk, will have smaller dimensions than the model presented to the public in November 2019. It was Musk who confirmed that the Cybertruck will be smaller than the 3 % compared to the prototype with a length of 589 cm, a width of 203 cm, a height of 190 cm, and a wheelbase of 380 cm. Also according to Tesla’s CEO, it seems that on-board comfort will not be affected due to the new measures as the size reduction will take away only 1.5% of space for passengers in the futuristic pickup.
New, more traditional configuration of the headlights
An interesting aspect of this Cybertruck prototype filmed on the street is that of the headlights which appear to have a slightly different design than the one shown by Musk at the presentation a couple of weeks ago. While the vehicle exhibited at the reveal had a single LED light bar that extended across the front fascia.
The prototype seen on the street adopts a thinner LED light bar and more traditional LED headlights placed on the sides of the front. We don’t know if this will be the final look of the final model, but the headlight design on the Musk-led prototype looks much more likely to make it into production than the light bar mounted on the concept.
Three engine variants
There’s no way to know what kind of engine drives the prototype in the video, as the Tesla Cybertruck will be available in three different configurations. As we know, the first to be launched will be the most powerful variant, the one with the Tri-Motor AWD engine, which will debut on the market in 2021. It is a version with three electric motors, capable of accelerating from 0 to 96 km / h in 2.9 seconds and offer a total range of 800 kilometers.
On the market in 2021 & The single engine in 2022
Below the top of the range is the intermediate version, called Dual Motor, with two electric motors, one for each axle, which allows the pick-up to accelerate from 0 to 96 km / h in 4.5 seconds, guaranteeing more than 480 kilometers of autonomy. To complete the Tesla Cybertruck range we find the basic Single Motor variant, which will be launched only in 2022 and which is equipped with a single electric motor capable of pushing the vehicle from 0 to 96 km / h in 6.2 seconds, with a range overall of just over 400 kilometers.
