The Coolest Tesla Cybertruck Attachment Revealed
We have a video from Tailosive EV that shows one of the coolest Tesla Cybertruck attachments I've ever seen. Apparently, someone at Tesla may have come up with the concept and we'll unveil that now.
It's a solar trailer with a Starlink dish attached to it. The solar trailer has solar wings that come out of it. Elon Musk also talked about having solar wings come out of the Cybertruck on November of 2019. It could get 15 miles of range per day in a sunny location, and with solar wings you could get 30 to 40 miles of range in a sunny space.
Many people would say that it would take forever to charge the Cybertruck and that all of this wouldn't be worth it. Solar does not need to replace charging your vehicle. But it definitely will work as a supplemental energy source. And by having solar panel options, it will satisfy post apocalyptic features and scenarios that people want.
There's also startup companies that offer attachments like the Cyberlandr that offer attachments for people who want to live off grid and travel all the time. Being able to embed solar panels or a Starlink satellite on a Cybertruck is a very good idea. Many people want to be able to travel for their life.
The Tesla Cybertruck and Other Vehicles
Solar panels could be put on a Tesla Model 3 for example and be able to charge the vehicle's air conditioning or center console. That's an example of making a more efficient vehicle.
The Tesla Cybertruck is supposed to start next year, but I wonder if that is truly going to start. Tesla has been trying to ramp the 4680 batteries at Giga Texas and it has been slow going. The Tesla Cybertruck is a vehicle that will require 4680 batteries to get it to around 300 miles of range. And solar panels will help give it just a little bit more power.
The Cybertruck is also a large vehicle with a larger surface area with tons of space over the roof. You can put solar cells on the top of the Cybertruck, which could charge the truck. When you park the truck while camping, you could have a solar trailer with wings that come out. It's all about slowing the drain of energy from the Cybertruck.
Tesla may not be able to offer the quad motor Cybertruck right away due to the demand of the 4680 batteries. Or Tesla will have to delay the release of the Cybertruck again... It will be interesting to see what actually happens early next year in 2023.
I have a Tesla Cybertruck on order, but with the way prices are right now, I would expect that the Cybertruck would be around $100,000, even for the dual-motor version... Solar would be a standard option to add on the vehicle and if the solar panels add efficiency, then Tesla can use less batteries to achieve the same amount of range.
Do you think the Tesla Cybertruck will come with solar panels as a standard feature? Will Tesla release the Cybertruck early next year in 2023?
