It has been a long, arduous wait — dating back as far as 2016 — but the anticipation is finally over. Elon Musk’s all-electric car brand, Tesla, has finally unveiled their very first pickup, the aptly-named Cybertruck.
It’s hard not to think that Musk drew inspiration from the DeLorean DMC-12 for this design — from its angular silhouette to an exterior construction of “Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless steel,” a material chosen specifically for its toughness. However, the appearance is where the similarities stop. You see, where the DMC-12 was a cool looking car that couldn’t carry its weight on the road, the Tesla Cybertruck is a different beast entirely. According to the brand, the all-electric truck is good for (potentially) over 500+ miles per charge, has a blistering 0-60 time of under 2.9 seconds, and it can tow over 14,000 pounds. And that’s not even the whole of it; it also boasts Tesla armored glass windows, seating for six, up to 3,500 pounds of payload capacity and adjustable air suspension, and a bed that appears to have its own built-in tailgate ramp — so you can easily load your motorcycle or ATV in the back. Clearly, this truck of the future is built for every measure of adventure — yet the price starts at just $39,900.
