Why Cybertruck Prices and Specs Are Removed
Tesla has removed the specs and price of the Cybertruck. The order page has gone through many variations and Elon Musk said that it will have a dual and quad motor variant. It is a truck meant to be strong and durable.
Pickup trucks get beat up and get weaker over time due to hauling goods and having the durability tested. Tesla is making the Cybertruck go through a series of difficult tests in order to be the most durable and highly performant electric truck on the market.
The Cybertruck isn't vapor ware as many have claimed. There are frames being stamped out with the Giga Press.
Also, LFP batteries may be a good option for the Cybertruck due to their longevity. Still, the 4680 batteries will probably be used for their power and cost reduction. Tesla has struggled to get enough batteries and struggled to produce a new type of pickup truck - the Cybertruck. It's an entirely new concept.
The Challenge of the Cybertruck
Elon Musk is an optimist and sometimes too optimistic. No pessimist could have done what Elon Musk has done with Tesla and you need someone who is optimistic in order to make the Cybertruck. There have been sightings of the Cybertruck prototype, showing that it will indeed be shipped to customers.
In the reveal, the Cybertruck was hit with a mallet and had steel balls thrown at the window glass. The glass shattered due to the door below being hit with the mallet first, but it shows that Tesla is very serious about making sure the truck is durable.
The Cybertruck will have a completely new camera setup, considering it is unlike any electric car Tesla has ever produced. The prototype of the Cybertruck has side mirrors due to that being a legal requirement. Otherwise they probably wouldn't have them.
There was a photo spotted of a Cybertruck being loaded onto a flat bed that was dirty and looked like it had been run through a series of tests. It shows Tesla is testing it to see if it will hold up to real world driving.
It has a stainless steel exoskeleton and body should mean it is the toughest pickup truck ever. It being electric puts it into a league of its own. It will make it much stronger than the gasoline trucks from Ford and GM.
Water won't be a problem with this vehicle - you'll be able to drive through a river if you need to. The only predicament could be that the truck could float away.
We'll have to see what the price is and what the final specs are when deliveries start to happen. It will probably be the 2nd half of 2023. There's a good chance we'll also see a base variant of the Cybertruck with LFP batteries in order to make it affordable and still be profitable.
Why do you think the Cybertruck order page removed the price and spec? Will it cost under $100,000?
