Rivian R1T vs. Tesla Cybertruck, A Battle We’ve All Been Waiting For
Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck, its first properly rugged utility vehicle and first to not follow the ’Model XYZ’ nomenclature, last night during an eye-catching launch event with concert lights aplenty as well as aides dressed as if they came from a Blade Runner casting. But away from all the glitz, we’ve all been asking how the Tesla will compare when pitched against its (potentially) biggest rival, the Rivian R1T? Well, we can finally answer the question.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s Graffiti-Style Font has "Merchandise" Written All Over It
Tesla is not above trying to monetize anything that it thinks will make money. Now that the all-electric Cybertruck has been revealed, you can be sure that the California automaker will find ways to generate supplementary income when opportunities present themselves.
It just so happens that one of those opportunities is already sitting in Tesla’s lap. No, it’s not the Cybertruck itself. It’s not even the Cyberquad. It’s the Cybertruck’s graffiti-style name. If you don’t think Tesla’s not above making money off of a font, wait a few months and check the company’s online shop. You might find a t-shirt with your exact size in it.
Tesla Cybertruck vs Ford F-150: quick comparison
The highly anticipated 2021 Tesla Cybertruck is here and we’re already wondering how many customers it will steal from the Ford F-150, the world’s best-selling truck. Granted, the awkward design might not help Tesla, but the 2021 Cybertruck has some impressive features and performance targets that might bring new customers into its dealerships. Let’s see how the Cybertruck compares to the F-150.
Tesla’s Cybertruck Could Be The Perfect Overlanding Vehicle For The Adventurous Folks
When Rivian revealed its R1T truck, there was barely any information known about the Tesla pickup truck. However, a few details slowly started to emerge and it looked like the latter will be more of a performance-oriented truck. In the meanwhile, Rivian took an alternate approach to become a household name in EV adventure lifestyle segment. Just around the time when Tesla was basking in its “Under $50,000” news, Rivian started promoting its R1T truck as an EV camper instead. Until the launch of the Cybertruck, it looked like both these rivals are promoting different unique selling points. However, it looks like Tesla is stepping into Rivian’s territory now. In one of the official images, the Cybertruck is seen with a bed tent and an outdoor kitchen. Although there is no word on it yet, there is a possibility of Tesla offering a camping setup as optional. Rivian must be fuming right now!
The Tesla Cybertruck Has Everyone’s Attention, But What I Really Want Is the Cyberquad
The Tesla Cybertruck is justifiably garnering a lot of the attention today, but just because that’s the case, that doesn’t mean we should completely ignore its little companion.
Revealed late in the Cybertruck’s debut is the Tesla ATV that we now know is called the Cyberquad. The ATV was unveiled largely as a late-game surprise to show that it could fit in the 6.5-foot bed of the Cybertruck. There are currently no plans to build it, but if Tesla had the temerity to build flamethrowers, surely the door isn’t closed on the possibility of seeing the Cyberquad come to life, right? Right?
Tesla Cybertruck Towing Comparison
One of the biggest talking points of the Tesla Cybertruck has been its impressive towing capacity. Musk shook the world when he announced that the Cybertruck will be able to tow up to 300,000 pounds. It took a lot of people by surprise and left them befuddled.
During the launch, however, Musk announced the highest rating to be 14,000 pounds. Forget about beating its own expectations, the Cybertruck has not even beaten the competition. If there is something to save the Cybertruck’s grace here, it’s the instant torque on offer from a standstill. Take that out of the equation and Tesla’s wonderkid will be ruled if towing capacity is an absolute must for you. So, how does it fare against the current competition?
Tesla Shocks and Awes with Cybertruck Pricing Details
The arrival of the Tesla Cybertruck has sent shockwaves throughout the auto industry. The all-new electric truck burst into the scene last night in Los Angeles and among the litany of important and breathtaking details that were revealed, none were as surprising as the truck’s price tag, or price tags depending on the trim that you get.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s price starts at $39,900 for the entry-level Single Motor RWD trim, and that’s not counting the incentives that come with it. Tesla is already taking pre-orders for the truck with just a downpayment of $100. Meanwhile, the Dual Motor AWD trim starts at $49,900 before incentives while the range-topping Tri Motor AWD trim starts at $69,900. A $7,000 option for the self-driving feature is also available.
Is the Tesla Cybertruck Really Faster or "Better" Than the Porsche 911?
The 2021 Tesla Cybertruck just broke cover at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and we are still struggling to cope with its polygonal design. But weirdness aside, the 2021 Cybertruck promises to be an extremely capable and fast truck.
Back in June 2019, Elon Musk said that the electric truck will be a better sports car than a basic Porsche 911. The figures confirm this apparently insane claim, so let’s see how much better the 2021 Cybertruck really is than the iconic 911.
Tesla Cybertruck Pickup Renderings versus the Real Deal
After making us wait for years, Elon Musk finally unveiled the Cybertruck at a standalone event in Los Angeles. The Cybertruck breaks the orthodox styling of a pickup truck that we’ve been seeing for a century now.
In fact, the truck looks so much different from the ones in production today that it does not even feature Tesla’s logo anywhere. No one can mistake it to be anything else. Also, there were very few renderings that matched the actual truck, but none of them got one aspect right – the roof; or rather, the missing roof. Is the truck anything like you imagined it to be?
The Tesla Cybertruck Has Arrived and There’s A LOT To Digest
The Tesla Cybertruck has finally been unveiled, and, as expected, it already has everyone buzzing. From its controversial looks to its power and performance capabilities, Tesla promised a truck like no other, and for the most part, that’s exactly what the Cybertruck is.
Reservations are now open for the Cybertruck; they went live as soon as the live unveiling ended. Interested customers will have to wait to receive their trucks, though, as full orders are expected to be taken “as production nears in late 2021.”
Tesla Cybertruck Photo Gallery
Tesla just dropped the Cybertruck and we must say, its sci-fi looks are unlike anything that’s currently on the market. The Cybertruck is bulletproof, has a starting sticker of $39,000, it can carry a matching ATV inside the bed, but it can also pull 14,000 pounds, clear the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, and spring from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds.
