Tesla CEO Elon Musk took the stage on November 21st to unveil the Cybertruck, Tesla’s all-electric pickup truck and the automaker’s sixth vehicle since its founding in 2003.
There will be three versions of the truck — 250 miles, 300 miles, and 500 miles of range — with a variety of towing capacities and 0-60 mph capabilities. Musk unveiled the truck at a cyberpunk-inspired event with many, many lasers, and even a surprise ATV.
But the event didn’t exactly go according to plan. In an effort to demonstrate the truck’s shatterproof windows, Tesla design chief Franz von Holzhausen smashed them with a heavy metal ball thrown at close range.
There are three versions of the truck available:
- Single motor rear-wheel drive with 250 miles of range, 7,500-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph capabilities in under 6.5 seconds, for $39,900.
- Dual motor all-wheel drive with 300 miles of range, 10,000-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds for $49,900.
- Triple motor all-wheel drive with 500 miles of range, 14,000-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds for $69,900. (Though this version won’t start production until late 2022.)
Musk has called the design “heart-stopping” and said the project is his “personal favorite” out of all the ones Tesla is working on.
