Off the hills of a very impressive financial quarter, Tesla seems to be at top of its game. To keep that momentum going, the company decide to open a design studio in Hawthorne, California. During its grand opening, journalists along with fans go to see the latest product from Tesla, The Cybertruck. During the presentation, CEO Elon Musk reminded everyone of the companies ambitions to make the world a much greener place. He proclaimed the need for sustainable energy right now. To prove the durability to the truck, they took it to task with a hammer, ball bearings.
Elon Musk pointed out that the vehicle will do 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds. Which is great for a zombie apocalypse situation. The towing capacity will make those Ford and Chevy fanatics get excited, 14,000 pounds is not too shabby. There are also three separate batteries, 250+, 300 or 500+ miles per charge range. Tesla’s truck will support 250kW charging via Superchargers and pack an air compressor on board.

Aside from showing off the truck, Tesla also gave us an electric ATV. The ATV currently is not part of the Tesla store at the moment for pre-orders. However, they showed off how well it compliments the truck which has adaptive suspension tilts for easy loading. It can apparently charge directly from Tesla’s truck while sitting in the bed, but with production not scheduled to begin until late-2021.
