Tesla Cybertruck previewed in Malaysia

– Possible launch?

The Cybertruck is deemed a celebrity on its own right by popular tech Youtuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) and now its making a splash on our shores right here in Malaysia.

MKBHD says the Cybertruck gets too much attention because it looks special, and that’s what makes it dangerous, not the design itself.

It is said that public viewing will likely commence in May at Tesla’s Experience centres as reported by Paultan. Lowyat.net reported that 2 versions will also make its way here, the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive and Tri Motor All-Whell Drive (Cyberbeast).

Here’s what you need to know about this unconventional pickup:

Striking Design and Durability

The Cybertruck’s most talked-about feature is its design. Sharp angles, a flat windshield, and a stainless steel exoskeleton make it stand out from any other truck. This exoskeleton is claimed to be dent-resistant and ultra-tough, while the Armor Glass is designed to withstand a hailstone barrage.

Electric Power and Performance

There are currently three Cybertruck options, all with all-wheel drive except for a planned 2025 rear-wheel-drive model. The base “Dual Motor” boasts 600 horsepower, while the top-of-the-line “Cyberbeast” packs a whopping 834 horsepower from its tri-motor setup. This translates to impressive acceleration and towing capability of up to 11,000 pounds.

Range and Charging

Depending on the model, the Cybertruck boasts an EPA-estimated range of 250 to 340 miles on a single charge. Tesla claims that connecting to a Supercharger can add 128 to 136 miles of range in just 15 minutes, making long trips viable.

Interior and Utility

The Cybertruck’s cabin is minimalist and spacious. The focus is on utility, with a large touchscreen infotainment system and a massive bed that measures 6 feet by 4 feet. Additional storage compartments include a front trunk, lockable vault under the bed, and even space on the roof. Giving similar trucks such as the F150 a run for its money.

Availability and Pricing

As of now, the Cybertruck is only available in North America. The base Dual Motor model starts around $79k, with the Cyberbeast reaching close to $100k.

The Cybertruck is a bold statement, challenging conventional truck design with electric performance and futuristic aesthetics. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying it’s a game-changer in the electric vehicle market. Do you also think it will fit Malaysian roads and parking spaces?
