The Tesla Cybertruck is all electric battery powered light commercial vehicle in development by Tesla, Inc. With range estimates of 250–500 miles (400–800 km) and an estimated 0–60 mph time of 2.9–6.5 seconds, depending on the model, three models have been announced. The aim of Tesla in developing the Cybertruck is to provide a sustainable energy substitute for the roughly 6,500 fossil fuel powered trucks sold in the United States per day.
The base price of the rear-wheel drive model of the vehicle will be $39,900, with all-wheel drive models starting at $49,900.
Production Cybertruck begin in 2021, with more models being offered by 2022 year.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s user interface in the prototype could give us a glimpse at what Tesla might do with upcoming UI updates. It created a lot of talk, mostly about its design, but many people focused on the insane specs and price, when Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck in November of last year. Tesla had one working prototype of the Cybertruck and gave test rides to attendees, at the launch event.
It gave a quick look at some of those interesting features and insane specs.
Video of a test ride in the electric pickup truck taken by Hamid Shojaee, which recently resurfaced on Reddit, showed a good look at the Cybertruck’s interior and its user interface, so the main difference is that the menu is now on the left side of the screen, which is the one closest to the driver, as well.
The menu is at the bottom and the driving visualization is on the left side, in Tesla’s current UI.
Since Tesla introduced the Model 3 with only a center screen and no instrument cluster, the speedometer is still displayed around the same position at the top left, which has been controversial.
An updated font as well as some new icons that fit the Cybertruck’s cyberpunk vibe, it also shows.
Also show, the settings, some controls for the vault, bed, at the back of the truck and even hints at an off road mode.
Cybertruck is going to be equipped with an adaptive air suspension system that is going to enable some interesting features and better performance with different loads, Tesla said that.
The Cyberquad, an electric ATV, is going to be launched as an option for Cybertruck buyers at around the same time as the truck. I don’t think Tesla could bring it like that to production vehicles — though that’s true of many things on the Cybertruck prototype but I like this new updated UI design. It’s also unclear how it looks with both the driving visualization and the navigation and the fonts should probably be easier to read.
Navigation is what I have maximized on my Model 3’s center screen most of the time and I assume it’s the case for most other Model 3 owners.
With the Model 3 UI, you can clearly see the map and the driving visualization, as well. With this new Cybertruck UI, It’s not clear how it would look.
I like it, other than that. There has been rumors that Tesla is planning some software, including an app, just for the electric truck only.
