Tesla unveils the ‘Cybertruck’

It’s been 7 long years since the first announcement of a Tesla pickup truck. Yesterday after the long wait, Tesla finally unveiled their pickup truck named ‘Cybertruck’ coined by genius South African founder Elon Musk. The truck resembling a trapezoid on wheels features an exterior built from the same stainless steel alloy used on Musk’s SpaceX rockets enabling the vehicle to be “literally bulletproof” Musk says. The supposedly unbreakable glass windows however didn’t fair so well during the unveiling of the truck as a metal ball was thrown at them and although the glass didn’t shatter it still cracked as Musk sheepishly pointed out “But it didn’t go through.” The motor will come available in three separate tiers with the most expensive version of the truck, the Tri Motor All-Wheel-Drive being able to carry 3,500 pounds, tow up to 14,000 pounds and go from zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds. It will also be able to drive up to 500 miles on a full charge. Base models will have a range of 250 miles. During the unveiling Musk also stated the truck has hauling capabilities better than an F-150 and performance capabilities better than a Porsche 911.
