Love It or Hate It

The recent
news for car lovers is that Tesla suddenly changed the timelines for the
Cybertruck`s most and least expensive trims production. The company`s
representatives state that a three-motor, all-wheel-drive pickup truck estimated
at $70K in cost will start being produced in 2021, one year earlier than
originally claimed. The Cybertruck with a single motor and rear-wheel-drive
will follow in 2022 (a year later than the original timeline) and will cost around
$40K.

A similar
strategy was applied to Model 3 sedan when the most expensive version was
released before a more budget-friendly option. A famous futuristic Cybertruck
already gathered over 250 000 preorders since it was presented this
November. Even though opinions differ when it comes to its design, the
technical characteristics of the truck still overcome a famous Ford F-150 in
such areas as towing capacity and the payload.

Cybertruck`s capabilities

With a
collective gasp and surprised faces, the public reacted to a new Tesla`s
vehicle: an electric angular stainless steel pickup truck with an unusual
design. Although its launch did not go very well (the windows of the truck
crashed when the lead designer smashed them), the number of preorders reached
250K within a week with no additional advertising. This is just unprecedented:
probably, the opening event was not a complete failure despite Elon Musk
cursing under his breath.

Some people
are still excited about its production while others are not. Cybertruck
combined a few of Tesla`s technologies in one piece featuring the same
stainless steel alloy as in SpaceX. It included lithium ion-batteries, solar
roof, and self-driving soft and hardware. Besides, Tesla offers two main ones that
will most likely make the Cybertruck a winner:

  1. Battery technology and manufacturing
    investment that uses solar power and other renewable energy sources to reduce
    ecological footprint;
  2. An advance charging network (14K
    worldwide) allowing Tesla product owners to quickly refuel.

All this
allows Tesla to keep the cost of its vehicles lower than competitors. The
growing number of EVs offerings could mean the start of getting away from
internal combustion engines. The ecological advantages of electric vehicles
over others are undeniable: moreover, they are more pleasant to drive, quiet,
fast, clean, budget-friendly and performing well in any weather conditions.

The future of electric cars

It is clear
that electric vehicles have gained more popularity reaching a new level of
public acceptance, as they can significantly reduce carbon emissions. Only in
2018 there was sold over 5 million of the EVS and the sales grew 165% in Canada
and other countries. Electric cars still have a clear performance advantage
over gasoline engines: they are also 77% less in their maintenance cost.

Even though
Tesla`s pickup truck would be less effective than passenger cars, compared to
non-electric vehicles its aerodynamics and motors are substantially better. EVs
are both economic and environmental friendly and become an important instrument
to reduce air pollution. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists report,
even the best diesel/gasoline-powered vehicles have to double or even triple
its fuel efficiency to compete with EVs.V2G technology is also developing: it allows turning
EVs` chargers into mobile storage options to help to balance electricity
supply. Thus, they become energy storages during over supply periods. Tesla`s
Cybertruck is specifically good for V2G use: it will have 120/240 volt outlet
to power houses in case of blackouts (Nissan is working on the same technology
with its Leaf). Of course, the Cybertruck would have to compete with other
manufacturers on the developing pickup market: Ford is already releasing an
all-electric F-150 version. However, Tesla`s new vehicle is still a
game-changer.
