Cybertruck could turn out to be the next truly game-changing electric vehicle from Tesla. The electric truck continues to showcase a further refinement of Tesla’s tech and provide an EV option for a segment that doesn’t really have one yet (but soon will have many).
Design aside, a simple glance at the Cybertruck’s capabilities and you’re looking at a compelling proposition to put down a $100 preorder deposit. But for those still on the fence, here are a few reasons you should consider going through with a reservation.
First, let’s look at a critical number for most folks when considering any EV, the range. A single- dual- or tri-motor Cybertruck will get you a range of 250+, 300+, and 500+ miles of range respectively. In addition, Tesla often raises the bar when it comes to their vehicle range. Therefore, it’s possible that the vehicle range could turn out to be more than what’s currently listed. In any event, Cybertruck’s proposed range should be plenty for (nearly) anyone’s daily commute. If it doesn’t, Tesla has it’s massive Supercharger network to top up the battery.
This range does not come at the expense of power as the tri-motor promises a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.9 seconds. And the industry-leading Ford F-150 took a beating in a tug-of-war with the Cybertruck showcased by Elon Musk on Twitter. Ultimately, we’ll have to see how it fares in the real world, but even in that video clip, Cybertruck’s prowess looks (ahem) pretty promising.
THE DEPOSIT IS REFUNDABLE
With the $100 deposit being refundable, placing a Cybertuck preorder is pretty painless. Simply place your preorder for the Cybertruck today and ponder your decision over for the next year (or so) before production begins. If you decide to move forward with the purchase — you’ve secured a better place in line. If you end up deciding against it, take that $100 refund and go have yourself a nice dinner. Or, perhaps, you can just put that cash towards Tesla’s less-expensive Cyberquad ATV.
