Tesla Released the Cybertruck's Specs, Read Out Our Full Blog


Tesla's Cybertruck finally arrived in the hands of some lucky customers on Thursday, and with it came the official specs for the futuristic pickup truck. The Cybertruck boasts impressive features such as up to 11,000 pounds of towing capacity, 2,500 pounds of payload capacity, and 340 miles of battery range on the all-wheel drive model.

The Cybertruck has been shrouded in mystery since its production began, and order holders have been eagerly searching for clues online about what they reserved with their $100 deposit three years ago. The truck has generated a lot of buzz and controversy as it was spotted on the roads more frequently this fall.

The Cybertruck is a crucial product for Tesla, as it marks its entry into the lucrative and competitive pickup truck market. Tesla needs to deliver a fresh and exciting product to maintain its edge in the electric vehicle industry.

How much the Tesla Cybertruck costs

Tesla has updated its website with the estimated purchase prices for all Cybertruck models, before any tax credits. The Cybertruck starts at $60,990 for the rear-wheel drive, 250-mile range model (but this model won't be available until 2025, according to Tesla's website). This is much higher than the $40,000 starting price that Musk announced at the Cybertruck's debut in 2019.

The all-wheel drive, 340-mile range Cybertruck costs an estimated $79,990 before tax credits, while the top-of-the-line "Cyberbeast" 320-mile range model will set you back an estimated $99,900 before any incentives. Both of these models are expected to be released in 2024.

Towing capacity and payload

The Cybertruck can tow up to 11,000 pounds, which is more than the Ford F-150 Lightning's 10,000 pounds. However, this is only for the all-wheel drive and "Cyberbeast" models — the base model has a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds.

Steel body

The Cybertruck's body is made of a Tesla-designed "stainless steel super alloy," which the company claims is bullet-proof. This ultra-strong steel would break a conventional stamping machine, which is used to shape vehicle bodies. That's why the truck has such a sharp and angular design, Musk said.

Ground clearance

The Cybertruck has a ground clearance of 17 inches on 35-inch all-terrain tires. The truck has an adaptive air suspension, according to Musk, who said the truck will automatically adjust the damping according to the payload.
