Tesla Reveals Rendering of Its New Trailer
Elon Musk has revealed the follow up to his polygonal Cybertruck, and it comes in the form of a Cubist’s take on an airstream, designed specifically for camping.
According to the Tesla CEO, the automaker is planning a “sick attachment for the Cybertruck” but for now all we have to go on is a rendering of the electric pickup truck with its own trailer.
During the Cybertruck reveal, Musk made sure to emphasise the electric truck’s towing capacity, during a video of the pickup pulling a Ford F-150 uphill, the CEO stated that, “with the ability to pull near infinite mass and a towing capability of over 14,000 pounds, Cybertruck can perform in almost any extreme situation with ease.”
That kind of capacity will allow the Tesla Cybertruck to tow larger airstream trailers as well as a variety of different campers—all with zero emissions at the tailpipe.
For drivers who would prefer to road trip without the added stress of a trailer attachment, the brand has also revealed a new self-contained camper configuration for the electric truck. The tent can be attached directly to the Cybertruck, creating a 6.5-foot-long bed for sleeping, underneath there will be retractable bench space and basic kitchen accessories.
While there was no initial mention of the camper during the initial Cybertruck presentation, Tesla has recently added photos along with the caption, “From rugged to refined, Cybertruck is completely adaptable for your needs. Prepare for every experience with a versatile utilitarian design—including onboard power and compressed air.”
The Cybertruck can already be ordered through Tesla’s website for an estimated US$132,000. According to Musk, there have already been over 200,000 units sold.
