Check Out These Renderings of The Tesla Cybertruck as Various Public Service Vehicles
The Cybertruck has been reimagined as a heavy-armored truck, combat truck, a vehicle fit to be driven on Mars and whatnot. But how would it serve as a pizza delivery vehicle or a taxi? It seems a little contrasting with its demeanor, but U.K.-based LeaseFetcher has imagined it in various avatars.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s First Public Outing Has Generated Tons of Attention
It’s been around seven months since the Cybertruck was officially launched. The truck is no more a closely guarded secret and it has been seen driving around L.A., but Tesla never made it accessible to the public… until now.
The automaker loaned a prototype of this one-of-a-kind truck to the Petersen Automotive Museum for the public to get a closer look. The truck is already on display and will be there till June 27.
Watch the Tesla Cybertruck Cruise Around Mars in This Fan-Made Video
When we got the first glimpse of the Cybertruck, we were convinced that this vehicle doesn’t belong here and it sure is ‘out of the world’. It became the talk of the town for its unconventional, unorthodox design philosophy. But, how would it fare on another planet? Thanks to this video by youtuber Holmes Draws, we can now imagine how the Tesla would look on outer space.
Elon Musk and Jay Leno Cruising in the Tesla Cybertruck Is Painfully Blissful
Back in January, the Cybertruck was spotted with two big names from the automotive industry seated in it. Tesla CEO Elon Musk was riding shotgun in the Cybertruck that was driven by Jay Leno. The drive was for a segment of Jay Leno’s Garage’s latest season, which premiered on May 20, 2020. A short video showing them cruising in the Cybertruck was uploaded on Instagram back then, but now we have a trailer that shows us what to expect from this episode.
Elon Musk Says The Cybertruck Will Be Able To Float For A While
Cybertruck news just can’t stop coming in. Yesterday we heard about the truck receiving a few structural changes, and now Musk says it will be able to float. Yep, you read it right; this news is fresh off the boat.
When asked by a Twitter user about the Cybertruck’s wading depth, Musk said it will even be able to float for a while. Now, this seems a little improbable given the nature of the vehicle, but the man has made similar claims before for the Model S as well.
The Tesla Cybertruck Is Slowly Transitioning Into a Normal Pickup
Musk took to Twitter to give us some more updates about the Tesla Cybertruck. He said that the truck will be about three-percent smaller in size, more balanced centerline, and flaunt a lower sill height for the windows. Now, these tweaks aren’t going to change the overall looks of the truck, but they will make the Cybertruck look more proportionate and well-balanced than the prototype. Since the truck is still some time away, expect more such subtle changes to come.
Elon Musk Wants The Tesla Cybertruck to "Kick Butt in Baja"
Apart from the recent Plaid version, it’s been quite some time since we heard anything about the Cybertruck.
A Twitter user felt the same and tweeted Musk asking for some information. Musk obliged and said that Tesla is working on improving the Cybertruck’s air suspension so it can “kick butt in Baja”.
For the uninitiated, Baja 1000 is a Mexican off-road motorsport race that features all sorts of vehicles customized for off-roading. Imagine a bizarre-shaped electric vehicle drifting, flying, and racing on mud. Oh, and also think about how would it look with all the customizations and graphics on the body?
Is There a Case For a Tesla Cybertruck Police Car?
We don’t have to tell you just how polarizing the Cybertruck has been in the wake of its controversial unveil back in November 2019. But the wave it sent to all online mediums has been of an unseen magnitude and that’s the best marketing strategy Tesla could ever wish for.
As a result, people came up with wicked renderings and some even started out building their own version of the Cybertruck. In this article, however, we’re going to be looking at whether a police Tesla Cybertruck would make sense in real life, given that some U.S. police departments are already acquiring and modifying Tesla Model 3s for patrol and other duties and we’ve also caught word of interest in the Cybertruck too, albeit from more exotic parts of the world.
Elon Musk Has Just Revealed Two Major Details About The Tesla Cybertruck
Not a single week passes by without new
related talking points surfacing online. Whether it’s a Hot Wheels RC Tesla Cybertruck or actual details about the real thing, Tesla’s polarizing pickup truck still has a lot of fire in its belly to stay in the headlines for the time being.
People Have Figured Out How To Activate The Dyno Mode On A Tesla And It Has Become A Nuisance Already
The bird is finally out of the cage. The secret is out in the open. Too dramatic, right? Well, it looks like some folks have figured out how to activate the Dyno mode on the Tesla Model 3.
When activated, this mode disables all the safety systems so that the car can be tested on the dynamometer to its full potential. The company never officially announced the feature, but an EPA finding revealed the hidden gimmick to the public. Although the company hid it so that people couldn’t misuse it, the cat is now out of the bag. Is this good or bad for Tesla?
BMW X7 vs Mercedes-AMG GLC vs Model X Drag Race: Hoping Your Kids Won’t Puke
Does launch control make sense in a BMW or a Mercedes-Benz? Hell, yeah. Does it still make sense when that BMW is the X7 or the Mercedes is a GLC, albeit AMG-badged? Well, we don’t think so. But the year is 2020 and SUVs are desperately trying to do everything right, so launch control setups on family haulers are not that upsetting anymore. Or are they?
The drag race you’re about to see is not necessarily the most balanced and fair we’ve ever witnessed. But that’s not the point, as the video is (another) good indicator of just how freakishly quick (and fast) SUVs have become and how this shift in character is hurting sports cars and sedans.
Tesla Makes A Bulletproof T-Shirt to Celebrate the Glass-Shattering Incident
The Cybertruck’s glass-shattering saga will remain fresh in our minds for a very long time. It’s not because of what happened on stage, but because Musk and his team don’t want us to forget.
Tesla is channeling all the hype it has received through memes and internet jokes into merchandise sales. On that note, the company is launching a new T-shirt featuring the incident, along with other Cybertruck-themed apparels and accessories. This is modern marketing 101 right here. The only downside - it’ll set you back by $45.
Lego’s Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic
Whether we like it or not, Tesla’s Cybertruck is bound to populate our news feeds for longer than we expected. Helped by the now infamous “armour” windows blunder caused by your humble metal ball, the wave of mockery is getting thicker and thicker. Classier, too.
Such an example of a neat trollage came earlier this week from Tesla’s fellow carmaker BMW, as Munich’s social media department saw the window shattering a good opportunity to pile up more exposure for BMW’s bulletproof X5 Protection VR6. And then came Lego.
BMW Trolled the Tesla Cybertruck Hard on Twitter
We’re back with more
related news as BMW decided to capture some attention on Twitter and channel it on one of its most spectacular products by throwing some shade at the Cybertruck.
As you know, BMW will sell you, on special request, the so-called X5 Protection VR6, a heavily armoured vehicle packing 530 horsepower and the ability to withstand gunfire coming from an AK-47. This sort of badassery allowed BMW to troll Tesla and Musk for the “armor” widows gaffe that took place during the pickup truck’s live reveal.
Tesla’s Cybertruck Destroys the Ford F-150 in Painful Tug-of-War Battle (Updated)
Tesla’s Model S and Model Y have already proven that electric vehicles can top gasoline cars in terms of performance, but is the Cybertruck better than the iconic Ford F-150? Yes it is! Tesla’s presentation video of the new electric truck shows the Cybertruck winning a tug-of-war rumble against the Ford F-150 with ease.
Update 7-25-2019: Elon Musk has posted a much better video of the Tesla Cybertruck playing tug of war with the Ford F-150. Check out the new video in the new section below!
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!
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?
