Tesla Cybertruck - Higher Ground Clearance And Adaptive Suspension System

A new video reveals in detail what Tesla Cybertruck will be capable of, and look like, with higher ground clearance. Tesla, the California-based world leader in the electric car revolution, is set to release an all-electric vehicle—the Tesla Cybertruck—that will revolutionize the off-road industry and set a new standard for electric vehicles.

With a powerful solar-powered lithium-ion battery and a muscular body, the Cybertruck is designed to be the leader among off-road EVs. It will be equipped with an impressive off-road mode that provides higher ground clearance, adjustable suspension height, and all-wheel-drive capabilities. It will also feature an adaptive suspension system that adjusts the ride height depending on the terrain, allowing it to tackle more extreme off-road conditions.

In fact, expectations with the Cybertruck have always been high, due to its very conception as a work vehicle, but also due to the many praises by many different experts in recent years. From now on, all those who longed for good off-road capabilities for the electric near future will see their illusion granted.

In a recent video published in “Cybertruck Owners Club” you can see how the electric SUV moves through the brand's facilities with its pneumatic suspensions at their highest point (although the video quality is somewhat poor). The clearance to the ground the truck achieves is really significant, thus easily accessing different environments with difficult off-road conditions. The aforementioned suspensions will be fully adaptive according to the taste of the user, or the driving mode selected. Thanks to this component, the Tesla Cybertruck will have huge clearance flexibility features.

In fact, in the video above you can easily see the great height that these pneumatic suspensions reach, since their large-diameter tires appear smaller than they really are, which are estimated at around 19 inches. However, although the model will be able to accommodate a larger size of tires, many users of the forum have argued that this could potentially deteriorate its off-road capabilities.

This is the first time the Tesla Cybertruck can be seen moving using this very specific driving mode; however, it is not the first time we hear it will have such capabilities: last year, Elon Musk himself published a tweet in which he reported it and that, at that time, they were working on the model incorporating great off-road capabilities. After watching the video, it is clear that his orientation towards this direction was correct.

As stated by the CEO at that time, the Cybertruck will have several driving modes so that the user can choose according to their preferences, but it will also do the same with an adaptive and automatic mode, which will work without the intervention of the driver or passengers.

The Texas automaker already has models equipped with dynamic pneumatic suspensions, such as the Tesla Model S and the Tesla Model X, although none of them is really focused on such extreme driving as is the case with the Cybertruck. If all the rumors and data are correct, this same 2023 should be the year in which the Tesla Cybertruck finally begins its mass production, although the first units would still take some time to be delivered.…
