Tesla Cybertruck features

CyberTruck is the newest vehicle Tesla CEO Elon Musk has unveiled, It can take a sledgehammer, withstand a 9mm bullet, and it has an unbreakable glass window, The electric car can offer more features, The software is upgradable over the air, The auto-pilot, air-controlled suspension, and automated monitoring are perks of ‘connected’ cars, you can control the vehicle from your mobile devices.

Tesla Cybertruck uses self-leveling suspension which compensates for variable load and some models feature all-wheel drive, The company states that other standard features will include on-board power inverters for supplying both 120 and 240-volt electricity, allowing the use of power tools without portable generator, An air compressor for powering pneumatic tools is included, The exterior stainless steel sheet-metal is said to be bullet-resistant.

Tesla Cybertrucks come with Tesla Autopilot, and they have the hardware capabilities for fully autonomous operation, Musk indicated that there would be a solar roof option that would add 15 miles (24 km) of range per day. Tesla stated that they expected the EPA range of the Cybertruck to range from 250–500 miles (400–800 km), depending on configuration selections.

Tesla Cybertruck interior

The interior of the prototype unveiled on 21 November 2019 included a 17-inch center display, seating for 6 using two bench seats with the front middle seat being a fold-down center armrest, a digital rear-view camera-based mirror, a race car style steering yoke, and a dashboard with a surface resembling marble.

The rear middle seat folds down to allow loading of long cargo extending into the cab from the vault (enclosed lockable bed), The “marble look” dashboard of the unveiled prototype vehicle was a paper composite material made from “paper, wood-based fibers, natural wood pigments, and non-petroleum based resins.

The bed of the truck is planned to be a standard-bed size, 6.5 feet (2.0 m) long, similar to a conventional pickup truck bed, It has sloped side walls, Tesla terms this 100-cubic-foot (2.8 m3) enclosed space “the vault”, It includes LED light strips along each side, additional under-floor storage space behind the rear wheels, 120 and 240 V AC outlets, and a compressed air outlet for pneumatic tools, the displayed prototype lacks any corresponding opening in the front of the bed, The cabin’s climate control was expected to be available in the vault for uses such as camping.

Design of Tesla Cybertrucks

The Cybertruck uses stressed skin construction (termed an “exoskeleton” by Tesla) like most modern aircraft, rather than the body-on-frame construction which is typical of trucks, as a standard vehicle frame would conflict with the under-floor battery pack, It uses unusually thick 3 mm (1⁄8 in) 30x-series cold-rolled stainless steel body panels, which cannot be stamped like conventional automobile parts.

The panels can only be bent along straight lines, resulting in a very distinctive faceted design that has been called “low-poly” or likened to origami, The design is no doubt simplistic, It is futuristic and one of the scientific advantages of Cybertruck‘s design is its ergonomic efficiency, and the design of this pickup truck is very polarizing.

Advantages of using the Cybertruck

Cybertruck comes with Single, Dual, and Tri-motor variants, The highest trim can reach 60 mph within 2.9 seconds, It has a massive towing capacity of 14000+lbs. Tesla states that the Cybertruck has a top-notch strength exterior shell to ensure the best possible passenger safety, as well as the armor glasses.

Cybertruck provides a very roomy interior space with seats for up to 6 passengers, 100 Cubic Feet wide exterior storage compartment of 6.5ft in length, including the under-bed, sail pillar, and frunk. The extraordinary body design leads to better aerodynamics, Has a driving range of 250+ miles in the single motor RWD, 300+ miles range in the dual-motor AWD, and 500+ miles range in the tri-motor AWD. 

All the trims of the Tesla Cybertruck come with 16 ground clearances, raised levels of approach and departure angles, and standard adaptive air suspensions that will be great for off-road driving. Self-driving is available in Cybertruck and it is one of the most attractive features of Tesla vehicles.

Cybertruck has Built-in Solar Charging, which is the most desirable option so far that can add an extra driving range of up to 40 miles a day. When regarding the strength and endurance of this vehicle, you can recognize that Tesla has prioritized passenger protection, The overall interior and exterior are made with industry-leading safety standards, and the body is resistant to corrosion damages and dents.

Tesla has moved to a 100% Vegan interior, the internals of Cybertruck are made of paper composite material, They are not only environmentally friendly but very durable, The paper composite is heated and it is made to look like marble giving it a posh feel.

Cybertruck comes with an unmatchable value for money, The triple-motor Cyber truck can run 500+ miles on a single charge, and Tesla has offered solar panels that can add extra miles, This surely is another benefit but debatable overcharging time.

Electric vehicles do not need Engine maintenance, engine oil changes, gear oil top-up, greasing, or coolant oil, So, Cybertruck saves cost & time. It is Eco-friendly, It is invaluable, Not just to you but to our future generations to come as well. Cybertruk has a stainless steel reinforced body, It is built with an exterior shell made for ultimate durability and passenger protection, Starting with a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton.

Disadvantages of using the Cybertruck

At the unveiling event, the window glass broke unexpectedly, the company said the glass is highly durable, Parking issues due to the size of this electric pickup truck, it can be tricky when trying to park in regular garages as this truck takes up much space than other trucks. 

The truck would likely not be street-legal in either Australia or the European Union, Particular concerns highlighted by these two bodies include the high stiffness of the exoskeleton exterior resulting in the lack of crumple zones, and the tall, flat front of the truck, which could increase the severity of leg injuries.
