Evolution of Tesla’s Cybertruck

Evolution of Tesla’s Cybertruck

With the first batch of Tesla Cybertrucks hitting the streets, it’s high time we break down the nitty-gritty of how things have changed since the initial buzz back in 2019. Beyond the flashy exterior, the production versions have undergone some serious revamping, reshaping the narrative of Tesla’s game-changing electric truck.

First off, let’s talk dollars and cents. The cost of the Cybertruck has taken a noticeable leap. Elon Musk spilled the beans in 2022, admitting that the original 2019 price estimates were a bit optimistic, thanks to inflation and some unexpected hurdles.

Now, onto the performance-centric Cyberbeast trim. While details are still a bit murky, what’s clear is that there have been some major shake-ups. The price tag for this bad boy has shot up by almost 40 grand, and that 500-mile range dream from 2019? Well, it’s been tweaked with optional battery extenders, now hitting an estimated 440 miles.

The real jaw-dropper? Torque. Originally promised at around 1,000 lb-ft, the Cyberbeast trim is flexing with a mind-blowing 10,296 lb-ft, thanks to some fancy torque vectoring announced by Musk.

Now, onto the all-wheel-drive model. It’s got better range estimates but comes with a chunkier price tag. And, just like its counterparts, the production model is a bit shorter and more compact than what we were shown in 2019.

Lastly, there’s the rear-wheel-drive Cybertruck, slated for a 2025 debut. With info on this one still on the down-low, we’re expecting Tesla to spill more details as we inch closer to its release.

In a nutshell, while Tesla stuck to some of their initial promises, other aspects have taken unexpected turns, affecting towing capacity, payload, and, of course, the price tag. The Cybertruck’s journey from concept to reality has been nothing short of a wild ride.
