Tesla Cybertruck

Interesting Facts about the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck

There has never been a more highly anticipated vehicle than the Tesla Cybertruck. It is Tesla’s first truck, but its futuristic design makes it one of a kind.  

Tesla is known to continuously push the boundaries of electric technology and make huge leaps in automotive engineering, and the Cybertruck is no different. Now that the Cybertruck has finally started production after years of delays and missed deadlines, here are the most exciting aspects of this head-turning vehicle. 

The Cost

The Tesla Cybertruck is surprisingly affordable. There are three models: the base rear-wheel-drive model has a starting price of $57,390, while the all-wheel-drive model starting price is $76,390. The top version of its vehicle, the Cyberbeast, has a more expensive price tag of $96,39.  

Tesla is thinking about its customers and has assured them that the Cybertruck’s base model price will decrease even further to $49,890 once you include probable tax savings and rebates. The all-wheel version will also have a reduced price with these allowances.  

Comparing the base model Cybertruck against its market rivals shows its affordability. The 2023 F-150 Lighting costs $49,995, and the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV costs $79,800.

The Speed

When you look at the Cybertruck, you would not immediately think it can reach fast speeds, and you would be wrong. Tesla has released that its base model, which has a single-motor rear-wheel drive, can complete 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds and has a top speed of 112 mph. The all-wheel version has the same maximum speed but can complete 0-60 mph in an impressive 4.1 seconds. This contains a dual-motor all-wheel drive.  

Lastly, the Cyberbeast boasts a tri-motor all-wheel drive, a high maximum speed of 130 mph, and a mind-blowing 2.6 seconds to complete 0-60 mph, which rivals Ferrari and Aston Martin times. 

The Body

We can’t discuss the interesting features of the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck without discussing its exterior body. The angular, futuristic design is like something from the “Mad Max” franchise. Tesla wanted to make this truck indestructible and achieved this by making its frame from 30X cold-rolled stainless steel. This material was sourced from the SpaceX project, ensuring it is one of the most resilient and robust products they could have used. If any damage or dents did occur, this material makes repairs very easily. 

But be careful as it has many sharp edges that could be dangerous for families or could snag materials. It was also shown during safety testing to have a small crumple zone as there isn’t much give in the stainless steel material, so there is less cushioning during an accident than with alternative vehicles. However, its smooth surface ensures the best aerodynamics and speed, and it can also withstand harsh environments when off-roading.  

Features like having no door handles also help aerodynamics. Instead, to open the passenger doors, you have to press a button on the right side. While this is great for the physics surrounding the design, it may lead to a lot of fingerprints on the stainless steel body or issues opening the doors during colder weather conditions.  

To complement such material, shatter-proof, armored glass is used for the windscreen. This glass also has acoustic features, creating a more serene and silent experience for its passengers. It is the largest glass canopy in the automotive industry.

The Features

Along with its unique and noticeable exterior, the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck has some interesting and notable features throughout. 

Side Mirrors

It has removable side mirrors, which give the car greater aerodynamics. We just are not sure if it is legal to drive without side mirrors. From a safety aspect, there are blindspot monitoring lights on the side of the truck and a front-facing camera placed just above the grille. To use these, there is an interface on the central touch-screen console in the truck’s interior. 


It has excellent towing capabilities and can pull up to 11,000 pounds, which is one of the best weights compared to rival vehicles. 

Pickup Bed

The pickup bed is also an exciting feature of the Cybertruck. It has one of the longest beds on the market and is made from composite material. With the cover bed extended, it has 67 cubic feet of cargo space, which means it can hold basically anything. Folding the second row of passenger seats will expand the cargo space by 54 cubic feet. The best feature of the pickup bed is that there are power outlets in the truck bed, which can be helpful, and it has a powered tonneau cover that can open and close the pickup bed. It is good to note when it is covered in, so is the rear windshield. 

Window Wipers

Due to the size of the window screen, it’s clear that a standard set of window wipers would not make the cut. So, along with the largest window screen in the automotive industry, it also has the largest window wiper. While it does a stellar job at cleaning most of the window, it does not cover a small portion of the passenger side. 


On the exterior of this car, there is not one Tesla logo in sight, but due to its futuristic design, everyone knows what type of truck it is and who manufactured it, so branding is unnecessary. 

Interior Features

The car’s interior has fifteen speakers, including two subwoofers and amplifiers. Bohemian Rhapsody, anyone? It even has touch-sensitive interior lighting, a HEPA filter in its air conditioning system, and a bottle opener. 

Camping Equipment

If you are interested in camping, there is a range of additional extras that are perfect for an overnight stay anywhere in the world. 

The 2024 Tesla Cybertruck really has something for everyone.
