Tesla debuts Cybertruck

Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, unveiled their newest product: The Cybertruck EV. This is the first pick-up truck on the market, and scheduled to begin production in 2021.

Watch the highlights here:

This futuristic-looking heavy duty durable vehicle sports an ultra-hard stainless steel skeleton for extra safety. It even has a solar panel roof.

“The low-end Cybertruck, which has a single-motor and rear-wheel drive, should get 250 miles per charge. The dual-motor all-wheel-drive version, which will cost $49,900, should get 300 miles of range. And the trimotor with all-wheel drive will cost $69,900 with 500 miles of range.”
