Elon Musk said that Tesla would aim to take the Cybertruck on a cross-country drive in late 2020 after SpaceX fan Michael Hodges asked when the East Coast could get a glimpse of the futuristic EV pickup. Hodges’ simple request hinted that interest in the Cybertruck has spread all over the United States from the West Coast to the East Coast.
Tesla’s Cybertruck was met with mixed reviews after its unveiling, but that isn’t evident now. The Cybertruck’s unique design has piqued people’s interest, and the voices who spoke ill of Tesla’s EV pickup truck before have almost all been silenced. For the most part, it seems that Elon Musk was right. People did want something different and new and futuristic.
Sure, we will aim to do a cross-country drive with Cybertruck later this year— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 3, 2020
A cross-country drive with the Cybertruck would be exciting to watch. It would be an excellent way to see the Cybertruck’s range, durability, and resilience. Many people are itching to test the full power and resilience of Tesla’s CYBRTRK.
For example, one team of adventures is planning a Tesla Cybertruck convoy across the TransAmerica Trail for the Summer of 2022. Adam, the leader of the Cybertruck convoy, wanted to test the limits of the CYBRTRK and see the full potential of the next-generation utility vehicle. In the group’s website titled Cyberland Bound, they map out the route they plan to take, which will definitely test the Cybertruck’s capabilities as an overlanding vehicle.
Tesla’s cross-country drive might not be as rigorous as the one planned by the group behind Cyberland Bound, or it might be even more exciting. With Elon Musk behind the wheel of the initiative, anything could happen.
Where Tesla’s Cybertruck would land in the East Coast wasn’t mentioned by Elon Musk. But it might be a good idea to display the Cybertruck at a museum, like the exhibit in the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Its Cybertruck exhibit has become so popular, the museum extended it until July 5, giving many people plenty of time to see Tesla’s EV pickup truck in person.
Tesla could also arrange for a Cybertruck exhibit in each automotive museum it passes in along the cross-country drive. To some people’s surprise, there are a lot of museums in the United States dedicated to automobiles.Follow @PurplePanda88
