Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla’s futuristic Cybertruck is going on a European “Cyber Odyssey” where the public will be able to get up close and personal with the vehicle for the first time.

The Cybertruck will be displayed in more than 100 locations in 20 countries, and attendees will also have the opportunity to book test drives with the award-winning Model Y and upgraded Model 3.

The all-electric pickup truck will make its first UK appearance on 4th May at Tesla Centre Park Royal (London) where it’ll be on display for the weekend.

  • Tesla Centre Park Royal – 4th to 5th May
  • Tesla Centre Westfield Shopping– 6th to 10th May
  • Kings Cross – 11th of May
  • Tesla Centre Solihull – 13th to 17th May
  • Birmingham Bullring – 18th to 19th May
  • Spinningfields Square – 20th to 21st May

Marketed as “better utility than a truck, more performance than a sportscar, Cyberpunk sensibility”, the Cybertruck’s revolutionary design draws inspiration from cyberpunk aesthetics, notably showcased in movies such as Blade Runner.

Its exterior shell is made from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel which helps protect against dents and dings and long-term corrosion, providing protection beyond industry standards.

Cybertruck’s performance variant named Cyberbeast goes from 0-60mph in just 2.6 seconds, while maintaining high-speed stability.

Standard Adaptive Air Suspension delivers millisecond adjustments to optimize both ride and handling. With steer-by-wire and rear steering, Cyberbeast offers the handling of a sportscar and a better turning circle than most sedans.

Inside the cargo bed, there are two 120V power outlets and one 240V outlet, to plug in wherever you go. For the first time, Tesla Powershare technology enables bidirectional power transfer to charge any device, other electric vehicles, and even power a home via the charger port.
