Video: Take a test ride in Tesla’s new Cybertruck

18

Whatever truck you currently own, what you will see in this five-minute video is like no truck you have ever seen before. The high-end model of this futuristic all-electric vehicle from Tesla can hit 60 mph in 2.9 seconds! Try that in your F-150!

Surprisingly, the entry level Cybertruck shown here sells for a mere $39,000! The high-end model, a few years away, will sell for $69,000 and will have a 14,000-pound towing capacity.

Want to take it camping? The bed in the back will accommodate a 6 1/2 foot mattress. That’s impressive!

When they design something that looks more like a pickup truck sign me up, that looks more like a SUV

Elon.. Musk never missed a government subsidy he didn’t take. TESLA, never made a dime, and as a matter of fact, loses millions year after year. P.T. Barnum would be proud. His cars are mechanical nightmares, with extreme reliability problems.

Yet, this clown is hailed as a genius by many. What all the tree huggers fail to accept, is that the vast majority, over 75% of generated electric, is from fossil fuels. You charge your car from electric generated from fossil fuel. The United States of America is now the largest producer, refiner of fossil fuels in the world. We, through technology in the petroleum and gas industries have been able to unlock another 100 years of natural gas. Hey Elon, if you can go it alone,without taxpayer subsidy, have at it. But stop with the ” look at me” baloney when all your money is from the US taxpayer.

Very nice. I pull a trailer, so I will wait for the road test in Trailer Life Magazine. It does remind me of the Dymaxion automobile except square edges instead of rounded edges.

In their pull test w a f150 tesla cheated big time by using a 2wd ford w skinny tires. Cleverly not showing the front tires not pulling like the rears. Shame on tesla

Yeah, and when Musk immediately accepted Ford executive Sunny Madra’s rematch challenge with a “properly equipped Ford”, a Ford spokesperson quickly took the challenge off the table. Said they were just kidding. Hmmm….

I really like the concept, but it’s just that…a concept. I am noticing the charging stations more and more in remote locations. I’ll stick with my diesel in the mean time, but I will remain open minded about this. I wish the best for Elon Musk and his designs!

LOL – so many armchair critics! This thing is cool – and just about anyone under 30 thinks so. This is the future boys!

Those were my exact thoughts- so I laughed when I read your comment. I agree with the other posters as well. I’m not oppose to the concept, just apprehensive.

For city dwellers and people that want a “truck” that really is not a truck. Get that thing out on jobsites and use it like a truck for a real test or pull trailers with it.
I’m not impressed and will keep my F350 6.7 and go full up at the pump when I need a “recharge”.

So Texas leads the us in truck sales. Anyone ask these owners what they need? Bet not. No taking this thing camping unless yr going to Walmart. There may be a nitch market for this, but doubt any current truck owners will be signing on. I’m keeping my real truck – forever.

Still doesn’t come close to the Dodge RAM 3500!

Out in the middle of BOON DOCKS America and No place to plug it in?? We don’t have the infrastructure of Electric vehicles in this country yet. If Elon Musk wants to make headway and really promote his products, then start working on the Infrastructure Problem for charging these cars up.

Test this truck with a travel trailer on it and I’ll bet you only get about maybe 150 miles before your battery needs charging. Not the 250 he claims!

I’ll stick with my RAM and burn those FOSSIL Fuels that are still readily available!

Tesla does have Super Chargers all over the US. There are northern, central and southern routes across the country and many more in between. I was in the visitors center in Blanding, Utah last year and there were several in its parking lot. Definitely not where you boondock, but possibly within a day’s charge away.

I’m not saying this truck is practical for camping or trailer towing, but it is feasible to drive it cross country.

I’ve been surprised at where Musk’s Superchargers show up here in Nevada. I saw a string of them at the Golden Gate truck stop in Hawthorne (on Hwy 95), but have NEVER seen anyone plugged in.

I have the last month they put the Cummins 12 valve 5.9 diesel in the 3500 duelly with just 100,000 miles. No comuter, just lots of power & great milage.

No hitch on the back for a trailer. Wheels stick out way beyond the finders. Water Mud slinging Illegal in many states. Total distance before recharge? and Time length of recharge? Missing those two facts.

The guy said 250 miles on this low-end affordable model. I’ve watched (and read) many reviews of this thing. Everyone comments on how it’s basically illegal as it sits (like Tom above states, wheels stick out from the fenders), the lights are too bright, no mud flaps (illegal in some states), goofy looking (just my and many other’s opinions). The diehard Tesla fans say it’s just a prototype and it will be made ‘fine’ by the time they bring it to market. Then why show it THIS way? Would I want one? Nope. Well, maybe to drive around town and look cool, but for RV’ing? No way. Can you say “Impractical”? And by the way, who sells ANY cars based on zero to sixty times? Not even Ferrari! They say they already have 200,000 deposits for this, uh, item. THOSE are Tesla fans, not RV’ing truck buyers. So, I wlll wait and watch with curiosity to see what happens to this ‘vehicle’ in the future. Right now it looks like an armored family carrier geared to the south side of Chicago.

They said the high end one will tow 14K when released. I imagine it’ll have a hitch.
