A video appeared on the Web from tests of an electric American pickup truck, which were carried out in the area of ​​the design headquarters of the brand.

In the Instagram channel of one of the users, a video was published in which the Tesla Cybertruck pickup is once again shown in motion. According to the author of the video, the recording was made in the California city of Hawthorne, where the main design studio of the American manufacturer of electric cars is located.

Recall that the concept of the electric Tesla pickup, dubbed Cybertruck, was presented on November 22. The design of the novelty made a lasting impression not only on fans of the brand. Elon Musk announced that it is planned to produce a pickup in three versions: with one, two and three electric motors. The “younger” version of a pickup with one unit is able to accelerate from standstill to 100 km / h in 6.5 seconds, while the top three-engine version picks up 100 km / h in 2.9 s, and its maximum speed is 210 km / h. The declared power reserve without recharging, depending on the modification, varies from 400 to 800 km.

During the presentation, Musk said that the Tesla Cybertruck body is made of high-strength steel, which is used in the construction of SpaceX space rockets. At the presentation, the model body was protected – the car was subjected to powerful blows by a sledgehammer. In addition, the head of Tesla said that the pickup was equipped with a special shock-resistant glass, which, however, during the presentation could not withstand hit with an iron ball.

At the moment, Tesla has already received more than 200 thousand pre-orders for the Cybertruck pickup truck, the mass production of which will begin only in 2021. In addition, Dubai police also announced their intention to purchase cars for their needs.
