The aerodynamics of a conventional pickup truck are extremely bad. You need probably twice the battery capacity to get highway performance at 60 mph on par with a Jaguar I-PACE. So this was a big No-No for Tesla from the very start.
Back then when the Cybertruck was presented to the world in 2019 it was such a radical departure from what is thought to be a normal pickup, that most were unable, at first, to comprehend this concept.
The aerodynamics were great. The bed coffer turns that open space into a vault. The stainless steel enables a unibody design that is lighter, stronger, and cheaper to make.
Now, Cybertruck is shaping up to be the ultimate off-road warrior — and it might be just as good as providing off-the-grid power as well.
CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to confirm that the Cybertruck will be able to power a camper or even a tiny home with its battery. When asked whether a user would be able to “plug my tiny house into the Cybertruck to power it,” Musk answered with “yes.”
That also means there will be plenty of power left over in the bank to power anything from lights to kitchen appliances. The RV community is pretty excited by the prospect. The truck is set to only debut later this year.
