Rendering: An Off-Road Tesla Cybertruck With the Angles to go Anywhere

The Tesla Cybertruck is yet to go on sale, but a hardcore, off-road version has already been envisioned

LISTEN 02:47

The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated yet controversial vehicles in recent times. This is mainly due to the fact that the all-electric pickup truck from Tesla was unveiled back in 2019 and despite numerous preorders, still hasn’t seen the light of day. While Elon Musk assures us that the Cybertruck will go on sale in 2023, Tesla may have dropped the ball since other carmakers have, not only brought it up, but beat Tesla to the EV pickup truck game, a case in point being the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, and the GMC Hummer EV.

Had the Tesla Cybertruck already been on sale, you would have surely seen at least a few of them modified in the way you see here. We got our hands on some exclusive renderings from our sister concern, HotCars, and it shows us an off-road version of the Cybertruck (wait, shouldn’t a pick-up truck be off-road prepped, to begin with?). While the rendering is not accompanied by any specs, the most obvious difference is the lift kit, which makes the angular truck at least seven inches taller than the standard Cybertruck.

The rendering clearly shows a transition from the adaptive air suspension, which would be standard for all Cybertruck versions, to a more off-road-oriented suspension, giving the EV pickup truck more of a Trophy truck vibe. This is further accentuated by the new roof-mounted taillights, which are no longer flush with the roof, and the two spare wheels stacked symmetrically in the truck bed, also known as "the Vault".

So far, we know that three versions are confirmed: a single-motor variant, a dual-motor variant, and a tri-motor variant. The tri-motor setup is rated at 800 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and 824 pound-feet (1,117 Nm), and is capable of accelerating the truck to 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 2.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h). Tesla is, reportedly, working on a version with four electric motors, which is said to arrive sometime after 2023.

While an all-out off-road version of the Tesla Cybertruck will be an epic thing to see, we are yet to get the standard version. Tesla would be wise to keep its promise and release the pickup truck in 2023 as viable alternatives are already on the market, not just from big companies like GMC and Rivian, but also offerings from smaller companies like Bollinger with the the rugged B1 and B2, Alpha Motors with the Superwolf, and the sophisticated Lordstown with the Endurance pickup truck, amongst others.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
