Attention Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Mechanic Students! Check out Tesla’s Latest Cybertruck
Tesla’s 2022 Cybertruck is coming to the market soon, and there’s never been a vehicle like it. The Cybertruck will be one of the first electric pickup trucks available for purchase, and make no mistake – this vehicle doesn’t skimp on performance, despite its electric motor. Deliveries for this Tesla will begin in late 2021, and with a surprisingly low entry price of $50,000 CAD, the dream of owning an electric truck may become a reality for many buyers. The Cybertruck is unique in appearance, with a sharply-angled exterior that’s made from stainless steel. If you’re considering a career as a hybrid and electrical mechanic, read on for more information about this extraordinary vehicle.
Those in Hybrid and Electrical Mechanic Training Will Be Blown Away By the Cybertruck’s Performance Specs
The entry-level Cybertruck will be equipped with a single-motor configuration, but buyers can opt for a version with three electric motors. The single motor option will go from 0-60 mph in just 6.5 seconds, while the dual-motor Cybertruck takes just 4.5 seconds to reach 60 mpg. While any hybrid and electric vehicle mechanic knows just how impressive these acceleration rates are for an EV, the three-motor option takes it a step further, getting to 60 mph in only 2.9 seconds. With the three-motor option, drivers can expect the Cybertruck to deliver an astounding output of 800 horsepower.
A Look at Range and Towing Capacity
When it comes to range, the single-motor Cybertruck can go about 400 kilometres before needing a charge, while the dual-motor version can go as far as 480 kilometres. As for the tri-motor model, drivers can expect a shocking range of 800 kilometres. As the Cybertruck is a Tesla model, drivers will have access to Tesla’s Supercharger network, enabling them to charge their vehicle in many different locations.
So what makes this Cybertruck a true truck? For many, the appeal lies in this vehicle’s towing capacity. Depending on the version chosen, the 2022 Tesla Cybertruck will be equipped to tow up to 14,000 pounds, with a payload capacity of 3,500 lbs. As those with hybrid and electrical mechanic training can attest to, these rates are almost unprecedented for a vehicle with electric motors.
Check Out the Cybertruck’s Interior and Infotainment Features
The Cybertruck’s interior is on par with the rest of Tesla’s models. Inside, this vehicle has a minimalistic feel, with its large 17-inch touch screen representing the dashboard’s only feature. The Cybertruck can seat six passengers, with a 6.4 foot cargo bed allowing for 100 cubic feet of storage. For those looking to store their motorcycles or ATVs in the back of this pickup, the Cybertruck offers a slide-out tailgate which can serve as a ramp to load heavy-duty equipment. There hasn’t been much more information released from Tesla as far as connectivity—but as it’s a Tesla, we can expect that drivers will have plenty of technology at their disposal.
Expect Some Innovative Self-Driving Capabilities
All Tesla vehicles have some autonomous driving abilities, and the Cybertruck will be no exception. The 2022 Tesla Cybertruck will come with the option of Level 5 autonomous driving.
Level 5 means that this vehicle can be completely autonomous, merging into traffic, switching lanes, accelerating, braking, and adapting to road conditions without requiring action from the driver. With such innovative features, it’s safe to say that the Cybertruck will make some headlines when it arrives on the road.
