The All-Electric Tesla Cybertruck


On November 21st 2019, Elon Musk, the co-founder of Tesla, revealed the electric pickup truck at a ‘stunts-filled’ event, which maybe mostly remembered for the ‘broken-glass’! Despite the glitch, the futuristic looking sci-fi battery electric vehicle (BEV) utility truck certainly has caught everyone’s attention.  The pure electric truck is like ‘Marmite’, it is either loved or detested in fury and has certainly polarized commentators. Elon Musks envisions a significant market potential for the environment friendly light duty electric pick up truck, in particular for the US market, where approximately 6,500 internal combustion engine (ICE) trucks are sold per day.

Within a week of the launch, Tesla received more than 250,000 pre-orders for the ‘blade-runner’ inspired electric pickup. The zero-emission Tesla Cybertruck is available to reserve in the UK with an initial fully refundable £100 deposit. Production of the Single Motor RWD is expected to begin in late 2022. The production of the Dual Motor AWD and Tri Motor AWD variants is expected in late 2021.

The very angular designed truck has an exoskeleton ‘an exterior shell’ made for ultimate durability and passenger protection, to include:

  • Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin
  • Armoured glass 
  • Polymer-layered composite
