Have you seen the movie “2012”? If yes, you probably remember the ending, when three arks arrive to save the “world.” Well, Elon Musk seems to be a fan of apocalyptic stories and does not want to be less. And, of course, having a company and being CEO of Tesla Motors, his ability to create a car that can save you from the apocalypse does not sound so crazy.
Elon Musk revealed that the company’s Cybertruck has been gaining significant popularity among preppers and survivalists. The Cybertruck, which was first unveiled in 2019 by the CEO of X, has a unique and futuristic design that sets it apart from other vehicles in the market. It is equipped with a range of features that make it an ideal choice for those who are preparing for a post-apocalyptic world.
What are the features of Elon Musk’s Cybertruck?
One of the critical features of the Cybertruck is its 30X Ultra-Hard cold-rolled stainless steel outer structure, which can withstand bumps, dents, and corrosion. During the Cybertruck presentation, Elon Musk, who has recently bet to the moon with Jeff Bezos, demonstrated the strength of the structure by hitting it with a 1.3-ton hammer, and the Cybertruck suffered no damage.
The Cybertruck also has armored glass, composed of several layers of polymers that make it highly resistant to impacts. Although the glass shattered during the Cybertruck presentation, Musk acknowledged that it was not ready for production and promised to improve it (as can be seen in the video, the glass shatters on impact).
In addition to its rugged exterior, the Cybertruck has a range of up to 805 kilometers, allowing it to travel long distances without recharging. This is important for “surviving an apocalypse,” as the famous entrepreneur said enabling Cybertruck owners to travel to safe locations.
The Cybertruck is also an electric vehicle, meaning it does not pollute the environment. It is necessary for surviving in a world of scarce natural resources. Moreover, its adjustable air suspension allows it to rise up to 16 inches off the ground.
This gives it a remarkable ability to traverse rugged terrain like sand, snow, and rocks. In addition, the 52-year-old South African creation comes with many advanced technological features, such as a 17-inch touchscreen, an autonomous driving system, and a wireless charging system.
Different Cybertruck models
The Cybertruck is available in three versions: a dual-engine version that produces 400 horsepower, a triple-engine version that produces 600 horsepower, and a quad-engine version that produces 800 horsepower. The creation of the chief technology officer can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 200 mph.
“Here at Tesla, we have the finest in apocalypse technology” – Elon Musk.
