Tesla Launching Electric ‘Cybertruck’ ATV To Go With Electric Pickup
Here’s everything we know about futuristic pickup’s quad cargo.
When Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the supercar-quick, Blade Runner-inspired Cybertruck in late November, the event also featured a “Cyberquad” electric ATV being parked in the futuristic pickup’s 6.5-foot bed by a rider suited up in blacked-out gear.
Musk provided virtually details about Tesla’s four-wheeler, aside from that it’d initially be offered as an admittedly badass option. Since then, Musk revealed via Twitter that the Cyberquad will debut alongside the Cybertruck in 2021. We also know a bit more about it.
Car and Driver reports that the two-seat 4×4 will actually recharge in the bed and that its wheels seem to receive power through a chain drive. While the Cyberquad’s appearance isn’t nearly as radical as the Cybertruck’s, renderings posted to Tesla’s website show that some of its bigger brother’s angular stylingr.
Twitter user QLDPyrrhonist also noted that the Cyberquad looks a lot like an Yamaha Raptor 700R SE sport quad. But since Tesla’s isn’t due out for two years, there’s no telling whether the finished product will bear the same resemblance.
Musk has other options in store for the Cybertruck, including camper and trailer configurations. Even fewer details have been released about those, but you can see renderings and read up on everything we know about both so far here.
