Despite spy photos, teasers, and leaks, there’s still a lot we don’t know about Tesla’s first electric pickup truck.

    All shall (or at least should) be revealed on November 30, 2023 at a delivery event for the Tesla Cybertruck.

    Tesla has now confirmed the time of the event: 2pm Central Time, which translates to 7am AEDT on Friday, December 1.

    We’ve seen almost every square inch of the Cybertruck, from its razor-sharp stainless steel exterior to its surprisingly compact 200L ‘frunk’ to its minimalist interior.

    We also know from an earlier leak it will measure 5669mm long, 2029mm wide (excluding the side mirrors) and 1790.7mm tall in its medium air suspension setting.

    It sits on a 3632mm wheelbase, and has a tub that measures 1849mm long by 1295mm wide and features three power outlets.

    Tesla claims a payload of 1134kg, with leaked specs revealing a towing capacity of 4989kg.

    It’ll offer adaptive air suspension, a power tonneau cover, and an electronically adjustable steering column, along with typical Tesla features like Sentry Mode.

    According to the Tesla website, the electric ute will boast up to 804km of range and be able to achieve a 0-60mph (0-96km/h) time of 2.9 seconds.

    What we don’t know is how much power and torque it has, and how much it will cost after Tesla CEO Elon Musk conceded specifications have changed since the concept was revealed back in 2019.

    “Cybertruck pricing was unveiled in 2019 and the reservation was $99, so you know a lot has changed since then,” Mr Musk said in August 2022.

    The Cybertruck has proved more difficult to build than other Tesla models according to Mr Musk, resulting in major production delays.

    He said Tesla will end up producing roughly 250,000 Cybertrucks a year, but only in 2025 as production will ramp up slowly, and warned investors to temper their expectations about the ute’s impact on the bottom line as it gets up to speed.
