  • Published on Nov 22, 2019
  • Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck, its long-awaited electric pickup truck, and it's possibly even more cyberpunk than CEO Elon Musk said it would be. Mashing up Blade Runner vibes with range and performance, the truck is already one of the company's most polarizing products. The Verge senior reporter Sean O'Kane was at the unveiling and got one of the first rides in the outrageous new truck.

    This truck was designed on a Playstation 1. Used all the powers of the PS1. Impressive.

    Maybe Elon actually designed the Chassis himself this time... maybe alcohol, sleep deprivation and mine craft was involved.

    It's badass as I'm getting used to looking at it. It definitely screams attention. I love it. First I hated it, after scrutinizing it, now I feel like this thing comes across as the Hummer debut. It's bold, mean, in your face kinda design. I love it.

    Great video guys :) Covered every topic and gave a good deal of information from the event. This is better than your "in 5 minutes" video.

    When the guy hammered other door he purposely tilted his hammer and dented. But when he does it for tesla he hammered with rubber part. This is weird act from Tesla.

    I definitely want one! It is an upgrade of aesthetics of car design. For the first look, it did look a bit weird, but then I just feel any other cars look out of date. The only drawback is the delivery time. Without Tesla, buying a car could never be so exciting.

    Where is the bed? I want an E-pickup that looks sorta like a vintage Ford Ranger. Sorry Elon, this just doesn't do it for me. I'll wait and see what Ford comes up with.

    I think you're forgetting one important thing regarding crashes. There should be a crumple zone for safety, you don't want the car to be superstrong/stiff. The stronger/stiffer the car is the harder the impact is when you crash into something that's stronger than the car. The crumple zone is there to reduce the impact for the passengers...

    Tesla had the opportunity to make a competitive pick up truck that would go against an electric F-150 and failed miserably.

    So how many miles of extension cord can it carry? In the case where you take it off-road and get stuck. A gas-powered truck can pull it out but you'll need a generator to get it back to the future.

    It's heavy because it will be used on Mars, which has a significantly lower gravity than Earth.
