By mid-2023, Tesla is planning to assemble Cybertruck electric pickup trucks at an open-up plant in Texas in the spring, while Ilon Mask, the head of the company, continues to submit to the public statements about the new possibilities of this unusual vehicle, saying that the machine would be an amphibian, allowing for the passage of small distances without compromising the power plant and traction battery.
Ilon Mask, judging by the history of his remarks, is clearly not going to be content with Tesla's electric vehicles' ability to travel on land. Second generation sports car Roadster will try to instill the ability to get up in the air for a short time, and Cybertruck pickup is willing to provide amphibian qualities, according to a fresh billionaire comment: .
As the head of Tesla added, this pickup truck will, inter alia, make it possible to cross the distance from the Starbase launch site to South Padre Island in Texas, which implies a water crossing of the canal up to 360 metres. There is no indication of the presence of additional drivers at the pickup truck, so it is only assumed that the car will use the rolling wheel when moving on water.
By the way, the idea of this use of Cybertruck has already been put forward by Ilon Mascom in 2020, so it is not new. The company's party has even begun to develop side-floating cameras that make Cyberturck look like a catamarane with a suspension motor. In any case, having a decent tightness of the Cybertruck body will allow it to be operated without difficulty in a serious no-road environment and bravely to overcome deep forads.
