Cybertruck's futuristic exterior will catch the eye of any person, but its features for towing capacity, carrying capacity and range are even more impressive.
The Tesla truck has a number of incredible characteristics for a car of this class. It is heavy, but at the same time fast and maneuverable, it is large and angular, but at the same time has excellent aerodynamic performance.
It is known that passengers of any truck are forced to face rough ride of a car with a high carrying capacity. The drawbacks of a heavy payload lead to increased suspension stiffness and reduced ride comfort.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk, however, seeks to surpass them all in this and other characteristics, thanks to the innovative Cybertruck. For example, Tesla plans to solve this problem with its four-angle air suspension system.
To eliminate skepticism about the ability of electric vehicles to perform the hard task of pulling and carrying heavy objects, Musk tweeted on Saturday that Cybertruck will capitalize on the instantaneous reactive and feedback abilities of its electric drivetrain.
The Single motor version of Cybertruck will be able to pull 7,500lbs of payload, and it will also be equipped with its own real-time towing and payload calculator.
According to Musk, this will allow the driver to monitor “changes to max acceleration, braking, cornering, speed on gradient & range, latter factoring in route elevation changes & cargo or tow mass & drag impact.” Obtaining real-time data on these factors will allow drivers to plan maneuvers such as tight turns, overtaking and steep slope control.

In addition to the payload and towing calculator, Musk added that active ride height and the active damping of its suspension will be game changing, especially because Cybertruck has such a high ratio of minimum to maximum weight.
The active ride height, which is dynamically adjusted to compensate for the difference in front and rear loads, is complemented by a Cybertruck clearance of 16″, an approach angle of 35 degrees and a departure angle of 28 degrees and provides optimal performance no matter what difficult task it handles.
In addition, the adaptive air suspension, which is standard on all three Cybertruck Single, Dual, and Tri-motor versions, is designed to increase energy efficiency, as well as to ensure smooth ride - in cases where the weight-to-load ratio is not balanced.

Tesla is a company that changes the rules of the game with every car it creates. Cybertruck was no exception. I’m sure that the next generation of pick up trucks from traditional automakers will try to repeat what Tesla has done right now.Follow @EvaFoxU
