Tesla's Cybertruck ought to eventually hit streets in 2022 — this is what we understand about Elon Musk's 6 future vehicles

Key punches:

  • Tesla should double its lineup in coming years.
  • Tesla targets to launch a slew of new cars in the coming years. But it is been plagued through delays.
  • Elon Musk is planning a pickup, a semi truck, a supercar, and a low cost electric powered car.
  • Musk has additionally stated a van and an ATV.

It's the give up of 2021 and Tesla's long-awaited Cybertruck hasn't arrived as Elon Musk in the beginning promised. Musk stated before this 12 months that manufacturing should begin this year, however now Tesla formally delayed the truck's manufacturing to late 2022.

The futuristic pickup isn't always the solely car Tesla followers have been patiently ready for. Musk's automaker sells simply 4 fashions presently — two sedans and two SUVs — however it has grand plans to enlarge its lineup in the close to future.

A semi truck and a supercar are supposed to arrive by using 2023, and Musk has stated an electric powered ATV, a $25,000 car, and a van are in the works as well.

Here's the place these plans stand, and what these motors can also seem like:



Tesla's Cybertruck triggered a stir upon its disclose at some point of a splashy tournament in 2019 — and no longer simply due to the fact its supposedly bulletproof home windows shattered on stage (twice).

The pickup's unconventional plan polarized onlookers, with followers describing it as futuristic and daring and critics pronouncing it seemed like some thing out of a primitive video game. Some questioned what its sharp corners may do to pedestrians in a crash.

Yet the Cybertruck has attracted greater than 500,000 non-binding preorders, in accordance to Musk. It will come with up to 4 motors and will provide up to five hundred miles of range, in accordance to Tesla.

Tesla firstly stated the Cybertruck will begin at $39,990, however it lately eliminated the truck's pricing and specs from its website. Musk stated in October that Tesla will possibly start constructing the Cybertruck at the stop of 2022 and start mass manufacturing in 2023.

In November he stated he'll provide an replace about the Cybertruck early subsequent year.



When Tesla printed the new Roadster in 2017 — aiming for a 2020 launch date — Musk stated it "will be the fastest manufacturing vehicle ever made, period."

Tesla claims the four-seat supercar will dash to one hundred mph in 4.2 seconds on its way to a pinnacle velocity of greater than 250 mph. According to the EV maker, the Roadster will be capable to tour 620 miles on a cost — farther than any EV on the market today.

Musk has additionally stated he needs to equip the Roadster with compressed-air rocket thrusters to raise acceleration and, potentially, provide it the potential to hover quick distances. Needless to say, a flying Tesla probable might not fly with regulators.

The new Roadster is priced beginning at $200,000. Recently, Musk blamed the Roadster's delays on "super loopy provide chain shortages" and stated the supercar need to begin transport in 2023, "assuming 2022 is now not mega drama."



Like the Cybertruck and Roadster, the Tesla Semi — the carmaker's classification eight truck — has remained in vehicle-development purgatory considering the fact that it was once introduced in 2017. Tesla at the start eyed 2019 for the large rig's launch, however has pushed that date a couple of times.

In October, Musk stated he was once constructive that the Semi will be in manufacturing in 2023. The Semi requires too many battery cells and pc chips to begin constructing at scale earlier than then, Musk said.

Over the years, the prospect of a battery-powered tractor-trailer has attracted plenty of interest from fundamental outlets and shippers keen to spend much less on gas and maintenance. PepsiCo, Walmart, Anheuser Busch, UPS, and FedEx have all positioned reservations for the Semi, which Tesla expects will value $180,000 for a mannequin with five hundred miles of range.

Confusingly, the CEO of PepsiCo lately stated the organization expects to acquire its first batch of vans this year, however Musk advised his Twitter followers: "Please do not study too a lot into this."

$25,000 car

At Tesla's company's Battery Day tournament in September 2020, Musk promised that a $25,000, completely self sustaining Tesla would hit the market "about three years from now." Musk has admitted himself that punctuality isn't always his robust suit, so it is honest to take that timeline with a grain of salt.

Still, Tesla seems to be making headway on the plans. The organization goals to entire a lookup and improvement middle in China that will advance the price range EV by means of the cease of 2021, Tesla China President Tom Zhu stated in a February interview with Chinese media.

The upcoming mannequin is colloquially referred to as the Model two in fanatic circles, however Musk lately stated it will go by using a special name. That narrows it down.


The Cyberquad hit the scene as a last-minute, shock announcement at some point of Tesla's Cybertruck unveiling. We have not heard tons about it since, however Tesla did launch a $1,900 kiddie model of it simply in time for the holidays. (It offered out quickly.)

Tesla hasn't mentioned pricing, a launch date, or any specs. But some sleuthing with the aid of car journalist Bozi Tatarevic seems to have uncovered that the Cyberquad — at least the one proven in the course of the Cybertruck tournament — shares a platform with the gas-powered Yamaha Raptor ATV.

Musk has stated Tesla is aiming to roll out the two-person electric powered ATV at the equal time as the Cybertruck, and that the quad will at first be on hand as an choice for the pickup.



Musk has floated the thinking of a Tesla van greater than once, most lately in the course of a February interview on Joe Rogan's podcast in which he stated it is viable the EV will have an array of photo voltaic panels on it. Before that, Musk stated on a convention name in January that it plans to construct a van "at some point," however that it is been held again via a lack of battery mobilephone supply.

It's viable that a future high-capacity Tesla would be used to shuttle passengers alongside networks of subterranean roadways constructed by means of The Boring Company, a tunneling company that Musk additionally runs. A San Bernardino County transportation reliable let it slip in June that the county is working with Tesla on a 12-person van for a future Boring tunnel there, however Tesla hasn't formally introduced any such vehicle.
