Tesla Tries Out New Invention Yesterday
The forthcoming Tesla Cybertruck, an all-electric pickup, could potentially receive a special, higher-performance edition featuring heightened power and torque.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently took the opportunity to check out the performance Cybertruck and had this to say: “I just drove the performance Cybertruck today and it kicks ass next-level.” Musk indicated that the performance version of the vehicle brings a step change in comparison to its regular version.
In response to a Tesla Owners Silicon Valley post discussing the possibility of a Tesla Model 3 Plaid version, Elon Musk denied its existence. However, he then added a comment about the “Performance” version of the Cybertruck, thereby indirectly confirming its existence.
We can’t help but speculate whether Elon Musk’s trial of “the performance Cybertruck” had anything to do with the recent acceleration tests conducted at the Tesla Factory’s test track in Fremont, California. It’s plausible that both the development team and Musk himself have been evaluating the initial prototype in the last few days.
It appears that the Tesla arrangement will always provide a certain degree of execution variant: Whether it’s the high-performance Model S Plaid, or the revised and revved-up Model 3 Performance, they’re continually striving to stand out. Each performance version carries innovations and tweaks that make the vehicle sportier, quicker, and more proficient than the typical models. With this competitive spirit, Tesla is pushing the limits of what an EV can be.
It will be intriguing to find out if the corporation’s objective is to rival or exceed the acceleration of the top-tier GMC Hummer EV Pickup.
Surely, it is anticipated that Tesla shall offer multiple standard editions of the Cybertruck – from various strengths of power packs and ranges to different capacities of execution.
The ultimate specs and prices are still to come, though the company’s website provides some clues – with a maximum towing limit of 14,000 lbs (as opposed to 10,000 and 11,000 lbs on the Ford F-150 Lightning and Rivian R1T resp.), max payload of up to 3,500 lbs, a range estimated at 500 miles and accelerating from 0 – 60mph in 2.9 secs or less.
It is anticipated that the Tesla Cybertruck will commence production in Texas during the latter part of this year, however it could be highly restricted to start. It is likely that significant volume manufacture could commence at some time within the course of 2024.
