After a delay of 2 years, Tesla is finally ready to take the cover off its production-spec Cybertruck on November 30. The Production of the Cybertruck began last year at the Texas Gigafactory and at that time we got a teaser of the Production-ready Cybertruck.
Bookings for the cybertruck opened for the US a few months back and deliveries of the first 10 trucks will take place on the same date as its debut, November 30 while the others will be delivered gradually. While there’s no confirmation from the brand officially, the order numbers of the Cybrtruck seem to be huge and according to some independent reservation trackers, the figure stands somewhere at 2 million units. Apart from that, Tesla will begin the deliveries of two out of 3 options of the Cybertruck initially.
We need to talk about the Tesla Cybertruck’s Interiors
To be honest, there isn’t much to the exterior design of the Cybertruck since the pictures have been floating around the internet for a while and the truck looks like a Mars rover. But the highlight here is the interior. Just like the outside, the interior and the dashboard layout maintain a clean minimalistic look with a 17-inch touchscreen display in the centre. The theme on the standard unit will likely be a unique white and grey tone as indicated by the leaked pics.
It gets more interesting from here. If you look closer at the touchscreen display, you’ll notice controls for suspension settings, steering adjustments, child lock, headlamps, sentry mode, bed cover and more. The Cybertruck also follows other Tesla models and has the “Frunk”, basically a Trunk at the front and the signature Tesla steering wheel.
Tesla Cybertruck – Will you feel like Batman
I am not kidding. The new Cybertruck’s body is made from “ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel”, which not only increases your chances of survival during a collision but is also claimed to be able to withstand attacks from 9 mm bullets. Well recently Elon Musk and Joe Rohan did enter a challenge and Rohan shot an arrow towards the cybertruck, which shattered the arrow completely but left a minor dent on the car. Elon goes on to say that the arrow would have “easily gone through a normal car” and that the Cyberturck is an armoured vehicle from the future that Bladerunner would have driven. You can read both the tweets below.
To me, this feels like a truck that Batman would have driven if it had been all black, who knows maybe we will get an all-black colour scheme if Elon is a Batman fan. It also has a towing capacity of up to 3,400 kg and a payload capacity of 1,360 kg. The truck is not only bulletproof and strong, but it’s also quick. The entry-level single-motor RWD cybertruck can go 0 to 100 kph in just 6.5 seconds. Oh, and the claimed driving range of this variant is 402 km.
The dual-motor version can go 0 to 100 kph even quicker at just 4.5 seconds and also has a 402 km driving range. The top-spec tri-motor version’s speed is not known but it uses Tesla’s plaid platform and has a massive driving range of 804 km with a towing capacity of 6,350 kg.
Tesla India Plans
There’s also a rumour that the Indian government and Tesla are very close to coming to an agreement that will allow the US EV maker to sell CBU units in our market and also set up a manufacturing unit in India. So, Tesla may enter India soon officially with the initial batch of their cars sold being full imports and gradually by 2026, the brand could start building EVs in the country.
