5 Things To Know About The Tesla Cybertruck: Price, Specs, and More

2024 Tesla Cybertruck

The Tesla Cybertruck has probably been one of the most anticipated vehicles the internet has been patiently waiting for since its concept’s shattering debut in 2019. Some are captured by it because of its unconventional, spaceship-like stainless-steel design. Others are more interested in how it will perform against other trucks (gas-powered and electric) on the market. Following its official delivery event on Thursday, November 30th, 2023, CEO Elon Musk has since revealed even more interesting specs about this futuristic-looking vehicle.

1. Tesla Cybertruck Price

The one thing on everyone’s mind is the same thing every potential customer thinks about… how much does it cost? In the four years leading up to the official release of the Tesla Cybertruck, there were many whispers on the internet regarding its cost. Initially, it was believed that the truck was going to be priced around $39k for the base model. But according to the Tesla website, those figures have gone up quite a bit. Below are the three available trims with corresponding prices, specs, and delivery dates:

Base Rear-Wheel Drive Model

  • Est. MSRP of $60,990
  • Est. range of 250 miles on a full charge
  • Can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds
  • Available in 2025

All-Wheel Drive Model

  • Est. MSRP of $79,990
  • Est. range of 340 miles on a full charge
  • Can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds
  • Top speed of 112 mph
  • 600 horsepower
  • 7,435 lb-ft of torque
  • 11,000-lb towing capacity
  • Delivery in 2024

Cyberbeast

  • Est. MSRP $99,990
  • Est. range of 340 miles on a full charge
  • Can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds
  • Top speed of 130 mph
  • 845 horsepower
  • 10,296 lb-ft of torque
  • 11,000-lb towing capacity
  • Delivery in 2024

2. The Tough Exoskeleton

A big thing with pickup trucks is them being “tough.” According to Elon Musk, one of the toughest things about the Tesla Cybertruck is its ultra-hard stainless steel exoskeleton. Developed to resist dents, external damage, and long-term corrosion, the steel alloy used had never existed prior to the development of this truck. It even stood up to a high-caliber arrow shot at point-black range by comedian/podcaster Joe Rogan.

During the Cybertruck’s delivery event, Musk revealed that part of why these steel panels have an angular shape is because the alloy is so strong that it would break the stamping machine used to create them.

Musk also claimed that its steel exoskeleton has more torsional rigidity than that of a McLaren P1 sports car.

In addition, the Tesla Cybertruck is also available with Armor Glass, which can resist the impact of a 70 mph baseball or a class IV hail storm. Certainly an improvement to the steel ball incident from 2019.

3. It Doesn’t Roll Over

Safety is another big concern with prospective buyers, and with an estimated 7.3 million auto accidents that happen in the U.S. every year, one must wonder how safe the Tesla Cybertruck can be. Because this truck has a very slow center of gravity, it is incapable of rolling over in the event of an accident. “If you’re ever in an argument with another car, you will win,” joked Musk. And for those wondering, the Cybertruck weighs 6,843 pounds.

4. It Can Do Truck Stuff

Like any other truck, the Tesla Cybertruck comes with the expectation of being able to do truck things like storing, towing, and hauling. With a bed measured at 6’x4′, it does not need a liner and can handle 4’x8′ construction materials. It has 67 cubic feet of lockable storage, and an additional 54 cubic feet with its rear seats folded up. In addition, it has a max payload of 2,500 pounds, and a max tow of 11,000 pounds, which is equal to a full-grown adult African Elephant.

Because it is fully electric, its integrated outlets can be used to power any work site. It features 120v in its cabin, and 120v & 240v in its bed. Also, in the event of a power outage, the Cybertruck can provide up to 11.5 kW of power to your home.

And, with a small touch of trolling its competitors, Tesla ran a test of the Cybertruck outrunning a Porsche 911… all while towing a Porsche 911.

5. Space-Age Interior

Because the Tesla Cybertruck appears to look like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie, the interior is expected to be equally as impressive. It comes with a 18.5″ touchscreen in the front and a 9.4″ touchscreen in the back, both with their own user interface. The cabin comes with 15 speakers and 2 dedicated subwoofers & distributed amplifiers to produce studio quality sound for its drive and passengers. According to Tesla, it “obviously goes to 11.” For improved air quality, the truck also has its own hospital grade HEPA filter built into its body.
