Elon Musk is one of the most accessible CEO in the tech world, and when the people talk, he listens…and sometimes even respond with some teasers.
Musk was asked over Twitter to provide some exciting Cybertruck related news for their anxious fans, he responded with a few rather specific technical updates.
Cybertruck Improved Suspension for Off-Roading
He said that tesla is developing a new “dynamic air suspension” for Cybertruck. This suspension will increase the speed of off-road driving, which is a different suspension system used for the model s / X models.
“Next week, we will work with the vehicle engineering team to check the entire suspension system.” Musk emphasized that cybertruck will be an extremely powerful electric pickup and will “kick ass” in the Baja race.
Musk is referring to the popular long and grinding off-road race that take place each year in Baja, Mexico. The annual off road racing event draws racing teams with cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs and off-road vehicles, all there to test their off road capabilities and endurance.
Cybertruck 3% Smaller Than Prototype
As for the specs of the truck, Musk is expecting the production version to be about 3% smaller than the prototype. The windowsill height will be lower as well, it may be to improve driver visibility or simply to make the truck look sleeker.
Currently, the price of Cybertruck starts at $39,900, the final version is expected to be completed by end of 2021 and start production at that time.
In terms of performance, the model equipped with a tri-motor four-wheel drive version, the acceleration time of 0-60 mph is only 2.9 seconds.
There are three versions of battery life. The single motor has a range of about 250 miles, the dual motors is expected to boast about 300 miles, and the tri-motor should get over 500 miles on a single charge.
