Tesla Cybertruck

Late 2022 launch – 3,500 lbs (1,587 kg) payload

Tesla Cybertruck

As far as being a game-changer is concerned, the Tesla Cybertruck takes the cake and runs off into the horizon. It’s the most polarising new car launch in the current age since cars like the Pontiac Aztec, Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Hummers, with a design that probably would’ve only required a ruler to sketch.

Not only is it unique on the outside, but the promised power figures obliterate anything stock with a pickup bed on the back. In the most performance-oriented version with tri electric motors, the Cybertruck can do 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. It can also be had with a single motor and dual motor to bring the price tag down. In its most efficient trim, the Cybertruck is claimed to exceed 500 miles on a single charge, with lower models able to do over 250 miles.
