Looks aside, the Tesla Cybertruck is a big step forward in electric vehicle technology. If Musk and his team deliver on the specs promised, it will be the first production EV capable of traveling a bladder-busting 500 miles per charge. That alone should make folks looking forward to an all-electric future happy, as limited range has been one of the most effective arguments against the viability of EVs as practical everyday transportation.
As for the rest of the truck's specs, they're also impressive. For instance, the tri-motor AWD model can tow more than 14,000 pounds and reach 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds. Those numbers just became a new benchmark that other electric pickup truck manufacturers may try to match or beat, which, again, is great news for people who want to see the rate of adoption for electric vehicles increase.
