Tesla Cybertruck Reveal: Watch The Livestream Presentation From Thursday

Tesla’s S3XY lineup is about to get bigger, longer and more rugged with the addition of its first electric pickup. Referred to as the Cybertruck on Twitter by CEO Elon Musk, it will be unveiled tonight in Los Angeles, though not at the LA Auto Show but at the SpaceX factory.

As with every other Tesla reveal, the event will be livestreamed at 8pm PT or 11pm EST, with the automaker expected to provide the feed on its website and YouTube channel. It’s not available yet, but we will bring to you right on this page as soon as it’s up and running later tonight.

 

What do we know about Tesla’s electric pickup?

Even though it’s been in the making for several years, it’s still a very well preserved secret. Musk has said that it “doesn’t look like anything I’ve seen bouncing around the internet”, adding that “it’s closer to an armored personnel carrier from the future”, with Porsche 911-like handling, made possible by the clever placement of the battery pack.

The Cybertruck will be similar in size to the Ford F-150. Musk previously said that America’s best-selling vehicle is “great”, and that if “it can do it, then a Tesla truck should be able to do it”. Thus, he hinted at a mind-blowing towing capacity of up to 300,000 pounds (136 tons). Nonetheless, Ford has already announced plans of making an electric F-150, and they demonstrated a prototype that managed to tow a jaw-dropping 1.25 million pounds (567 tons).

Tesla’s electric pickup has a targeted starting price of under $50,000, which would put it on the same page with traditional trucks, while also making it about $20,000 cheaper than the Rivian R1T. Reports claim that it should launch in late 2021 or early 2022, and that’s probably the optimistic scenario, as Tesla is known for delaying new products. The new Roadster, for one, was unveiled 2 years ago, and it’s still not available.
