It’s impossible to think what Elon Musk had going through his mind when he designed the Tesla Cybertruck, although we can make a pretty good guess because, based on what it looks like, we’re pretty sure he was going for the vibe of a car from an awful B-movie competing with Battlefield Earth for the title of worst sci-fi film ever made. To back up this theory, even though the trucks aren’t being sold to the public yet, one managed to break down on a backroad in Texas, proving that the truck doesn’t just look like a lazily designed prop vehicle from a bad sci-fi movie, it also can’t handle driving much better than a cardboard cut out could.

Even though this video doesn’t give us much hope for the future of the Tesla Cybertruck, the futuristic vehicle actually has the potential to outshine the leading pickup trucks in the market with its impressive features. Its sleek and robust exterior maybe doesn’t give the impression of luxury with its sharp edges and lack of sophisticated design, but it is crafted from stainless steel that is resistant to scratches and dents. With an exoskeleton design, it enhances performance and can effectively absorb and redirect impact forces, ensuring improved durability and safety. 

Alongside the Tesla Cybertruck’s all-wheel drive capability, this all-electric upcoming truck boasts an impressive towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds and an estimated driving range exceeding 500 miles. It’s worth noting that these specifications are specific to the top-tier model, which will cost consumers about $70,000, while the most affordable variant of the Cybertruck (without all the bells and whistles) starts at $39,000.

The Teslas Cybertruck is currently not available for purchase to the public, but if you are simply dying to start driving what looks like a futuristic space truck from an inferior alternate dimension, you’re in luck. After delaying the truck’s production multiple times, experts in the field estimate that the truck will likely be released around August of this year. If you are someone who can’t wait to get behind the wheel of this bad boy (and hopefully not stall out in the middle of nowhere Texas), then you’ll be happy to hear you will have your pick of options when it comes to designing your very own Cybertruck.

The Tesla Cybertruck will be offered in three configurations, distinguished by the number of electric motors they possess. The single-motor variant will have rear-wheel drive, while the two and three-motor models will boast all-wheel drive capabilities. The presence of additional motors significantly influences acceleration, driving range, and towing capacity. Notably, Tesla asserts that the three-motor version of the Cybertruck can achieve a remarkable zero to 60mph acceleration in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed reaching 130mph. No matter what you think of the truck’s design, a performance like that is undeniably impressive.

There’s no doubt that the Tesla Cybertruck still has quite a few kinks to work out (and we’d all like to know how on earth the truck managed to get stalled out in a Texas field when they’re not available to the public yet), but if Musk’s delays in releasing the vehicle say anything, hopefully, it’s that Tesla is hard at work mastering these kinks so that when the truck is released to the public, it is truly as top of the line as the tech billionaire promises it will be.
