Elon Musk at the Tesla presentation introduced the Cybertruck electric pickup truck with a futuristic design. The younger version of the car will cost $ 39900.

Musk said that the pickup can withstand a shot from a nine-millimeter bullet – the door uses the same alloy as SpaceX missiles. To test its durability, the head of Tesla asked design manager Franz von Holzhausen to hit the door several times with a sledgehammer. The presentation also showed how Cybertruck defeated the Ford F150 in tug of war and the Porsche 911 in the race.


Holzhausen then tested impact-resistant glass by throwing a metal ball into it. When both windows of the pickup truck crashed after the throws, Musk responded: “We will fix this in the factory.” He noted that the ball did not hit the salon, but flew off to the side.

Cybertruck presented in three versions: with one, two and three electric motors. The eldest is able to accelerate to 96.6 kilometers per hour in 2.9 seconds and can travel on a single charge up to 805 kilometers. Batteries allow a pickup truck to drive 650, 777 or 1295 kilometers on a single charge.

The carrying capacity of the Cybertrack is about 1.5 tons; it can tow a trailer weighing up to 6.4 tons. The car body consists of durable steel and acts as a frame. The loading platform is less than two meters long, but a Tesla ATV could fit in there.

The pickup also received an autopilot, adaptive air suspension, four-wheel drive and car parking. The cheapest model will cost $ 39990, a model with a 300-mile course – $ 49,990 , and the older equipment with a power reserve of 804 kilometers will start at $ 69990

Musk said that the pickup uses electricity, and this will reduce the cost of operation from an average of $ 780 per month to $ 570 per month. Production of pickups will begin at the end of 2021, the start date of sales is still unknown.

Musk back in 2012 wrote on Twitter that “it would be cool to do a pickup.” In 2013, he said that the company really plans to create it. Five years later, in 2018, the head of Tesla announced that the machine will receive a futuristic cyberpunk design in the spirit of Blade Runner.
