The DeLorean looks like it got an upgrade
The new Cybertruck is taking the internet by storm with its futuristic style, strong capabilities and new features.
The strength of the truck is caused from the Exoskeleton on the car, which supposedly is the strongest type of armor the truck can have. Tesla said it best with it’s Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin that, if stamped to make the shape of a normal truck would break the stamping machines according to Elon Musk.
People are still pretty skeptical about the Tesla armor glass with the whole incident about the glass breaking, but Tesla has come out with a reasonable explanation about why it had broken. Elon Musk tweeted “Yup. Sledgehammer impact on door cracked base of glass, which is why steel ball didn’t bounce off. Should have done steel ball on window, *then* sledgehammer the door. Next time …” This statement also holds up because during the demonstration they were dropping the ball on the glass and they were tightening the bolts around the glass to keep it in a secure position so that it would be in its strongest position. With this slight weakness in the glass it would have caused the glass to crack which is what happened to the door window.
During the unveiling Tesla showed a tug of war between a Ford F150 and the new Cybertruck. Many people were amazed at the strength of the Cybertruck when it was pulling the Ford uphill, but some people were a little skeptical about it being unfair because the Cybertruck weighed more so it had more traction than the Ford. Sundeep Madra, a Ford vice president in charge of Ford X, also had tweeted that they would want to have an apples to apples rematch and Elon had also been open to it as well but it is still undecided as to if it will really happen.
The prices for the Cybertruck range from $39,900 for a single motor RWD, $49,900 for a dual motor AWD, or $69,900 for a tri motor AWD according to Tesla.com. The Cybertruck is also able to go from 0-60mph in as little as 2.9 seconds the same recorded speed for Lamborghini Aventador one of the fastest Lamborghini’s in the world if you were to purchase the $69,900 version.
The Cybertruck’s bed is a little bit different than regular truck beds this one will have a button you push on the side and it will have the cover over the bed move up and slide down into the front of the truck bed.
During the unveiling of the Cybertruck they showed that they had an ATV that drove up the trucks built in ramp and then they plugged it in showing that the truck is capable of charging other vehicles.
If you like futuristic stuff then this is something to look forward to.
