Tesla CyberTruck

Tesla has released their new Cybertuck concept which shows a radical new wave of design from the company. A lot of people don’t like it but I am a fan of it because it’s not like every other truck released by the major American auto manufacturers which produce most modern pickup trucks. I also like the numbers, the Tri-Motor truck costs 70 thousand dollars and has a 500 mile range. It can tow more than an f150 and has a faster 0-60 time than the Porsche 911 C2S (991.2).

When I first saw the  concept the design made me think of the Lotus Esprit from the James Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me. In the film the car transformed into a submarine. This design similarity is ironic because Elon Musk, founder of Tesla bought the the lotus movie car at auction a few years ago. At the time he said that his plans for the car were to make it work underwater and make it powered by Tesla electric motors.
