Tesla Cybertruck is a fully electric vehicle. It operates on a rechargeable battery. This makes Cybertruck an eco-friendly. This Truck is not 100% pollution-free but in comparison to the non-electric vehicles, it is very Eco-friendly.
Design of Cybertruck
Mr. Elon Mask claims that no change is observed in truck design for the last 100 years. Tesla Cybertruck is a truly a new era truck. Its unconventional design, Stainless steel body makes it alien vehicle. It gives a feeling of armor war machine design for survival in a super chaotic situation.
Launch of Cybertruch created a sensation all over the internet and social media. Truck created a craze in youth and youngsters. Social media is full of stories on this awesome machine. Almost all lifestyle Vlogger on YouTube created a story on Cybertruck.
I am not sure all these sensations were planted or organically created or maybe mixed of both. It is not clear that social influencer or YouTuber are doing sponsored promotion or doing it by self.
Fully Electric Truck Vs Petrol/Diesel/Gasoline truck
Technology point of view, the electric truck is less complicated than fuel trucks. Distance travel and recharging are a concern with the electric vehicles for long-distance traveling and also Energy to work efficiency is low. The best part is, it creates minimum pollution. In the long run, Electric truck is more cost-effective than conventional fuel truck.
The grand launch of Tesla Cybertruck is success or failure?
The outcome of the launched products and the event’s success or failure is still to come. Numbers of pre-production booking shows a big success. But on stage presentation was badly failed.
Few examples are:
1. Breaking of so-called transparent metal was a big embarrassment during the presentation. Its effect was also negatively reflected in Tesla’s shares price.
2. Armored body strength test was biased in favor of Cybertruck. That creates mistrust among viewers.
3. Cybertruck Vs Ford, strength comparison video was also biased and does not reflect neutrality of test.
But I believe that these are a minor glitch, Tesla is going to deliver the product as per committed specifications.
My view over this TESLA CYBERTRUCK
Tesla Cybertruck is a lifestyle vehicle. Owning this awesome machine is going to be status and style symbol. The craze among the millennium population for this vehicle and its super affordable price going to make it easily visible vehicles on road.
It’s sound crazy, Deciding on buying online, such an expensive machine without looking into a real Truck. It’s hard to believe, but people are ordering online pre-production bookings in huge numbers. I am not sure about is safety and off-road driving capability, but I am going to trust the credibility of Tesla. Auto Driving / Self Driving feature is awesome but still is in the evolving phase. Since end-user feedback is still to come, so let’s wait and watch.
Overall Tesla Cybertruck is an awesome machine, if I have an option and money to invest in it, I could have defiantly purchased it.
