The Tesla Cybertruck to Become More Attractive

Tesla CEO promises to finalize the design of the Cybertruck before launching.

The premiere of the Tesla Cybertruck took place in November 2019. The design of the new model caused a wave of criticism. The look, positioned by the designers as unusual, seemed too primitive to many. Besides, the all-metal armored body of the pickup truck may be too dangerous for other road users in the event of an accident. In addition, it is unlikely to be released in this form in Europe.

The version with three motors handles the same task in 2.9 seconds. Depending on the modification, a drive range of the pickup will vary from 400 to 800 km.

According to unofficial information, the company has already collected more than half a million pre-orders. Each potential buyer made a refundable deposit of $100. Potential market competitors of the Tesla Cybertruck will be GM’s new Hummer and Nikola’s pickup truck.
