The 2024 Tesla Cybertruck looks unique  as thou it was dropped off by an alien, but it’s said to have the capabilities to challenge top-selling pickup trucks. The 2024 Tesla Cybertruck  is a battery electric medium duty full-size pickup truck built by Tesla, Inc. since 2023. Introduced as a concept vehicle in November 2019, it has a body design reminiscent of low-polygon modelling, consisting of flat stainless steel sheet panels.

Tesla planned to produce the vehicle in 2021, but it was first delivered to customers in late November 2023. As of December 2023, the Cybertruck is available only in North America.Three models are offered: the tri-motor all-wheel drive (AWD) “Cyberbeast”, a dual-motor AWD model, and a rear-wheel drive (RWD) model, with EPA range estimates of 250–340 miles (400–550 km), varying by model.

 2024 Tesla Cybertruck Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2024 Tesla Cybertruck will eventually offer three different powertrain arrangements. At launch, dual- and tri-motor models will be available and offer all-wheel drive; a rear-wheel-drive single-motor model will join the lineup for the 2025 model year. For now, the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck Dual Motor generates a combined 600 horsepower. Those looking for the ultimate performance will appreciate the Cybertruck Beast, which features a trio of motors making a combined 834 horses.

All Cybertrucks have an adjustable air suspension that can be raised or lowered on the fly and provides up to 17 inches of ground clearance. Add that to its 35-degree approach and 28-degree departure angles, and the Tesla pickup could prove to be a formidable off-road machine. On the road, the big Cybertruck feels more agile than expected.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The Tesla Cybertruck Beast has a 123.0-kWh battery, which we suspect is shared with the Dual Motor model. Tesla claims the latter can add 136 miles in 15 minutes when hooked up to a Supercharger, while the tri-motor model is said to add 128 miles in the same timeframe. In our testing, it took 50 minutes to charge the Beast’s battery from 10 to 50 percent.

The electric truck’s driving range varies with the number of motors, but Tesla estimates Dual Motor versions can travel 340 miles per charge and that the Cybertruck Beast will go 301 miles. Those claims rise to over 440 and 470 miles, respectively, with an optional range-extender battery pack that fits inside the truck’s cargo bed. When the RWD Cybertruck arrives, it’ll have an estimated 250 miles of range. We tested a Beast model without the range extender battery on our 75-mph highway fuel economy route and it managed a 250-mile result.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Those who thought the Tesla Model 3’s interior was minimalistic will relive that reaction when they see the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck ‘s spartan cabin. Headroom is surprisingly generous in the rear seat given the truck’s dramatically sloped roofline, but riders over six feet tall may still find it snug. In our testing, we found that the truck’s front trunk (frunk) holds just one carry-on suitcase, but the interior held 22 with the rear seats folded up. The Cybertruck’s cargo bed offers 121 cubic feet of volume, and inside the bed is a hidden storage compartment under the floor which is large enough to fit an additional carry-on suitcase.
