How Fast is the Tesla Cybertruck? And How Much Can It Tow?

In the two weeks between when we viewed the Tesla Cybertruck prototype and when Tesla design chief Franz von Holzhausen punched two holes in its window, a lot has changed. We now know how fast each of the three Cybertruck variants are, and how much each can tow.

The Tesla Cybertruck will be offered up with three different powertrains with three different motor configurations: single motor, dual-motor, and tri-motor. No matter which motor configuration you opt for, all Cybertrucks have a claimed 3,500-pound payload capacity.

Unsurprisingly, the rear-wheel-drive-only single motor model will be the slowest of the trio. According to Tesla, it'll accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 110 mph—about average for the half-ton pickup segment. Tesla also says the single-motor Cybertruck can go 250 miles on a charge and tow up to 7,500 pounds, though likely not at the same time.

One step up the ladder is the dual-motor "Raven" powered Cybertruck. This midlevel variant sports a MotorTrend-estimated 690-hp and 824 lb-ft of torque, and it should have the performance to match; Tesla says it'll scoot from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 120 mph. This dual-motor Cybertruck variant is claimed to be capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds and traveling around 300 miles on a charge.

At the top of the Tesla Cybertruck hierarchy is the "Plaid" motored CyberTruck. Sporting three motors—one up front and two in back—this Cybertruck likely makes around 800 hp and 1,000-lb-ft of torque. That expected tremendous power output would not only make it the most powerful pickup on the market, but the quickest we've ever tested, too. Tesla claims a 2.9-second 0-60 mph run in the CyberTruck Tri Motor, which, if true, would knock the 2008 Toyota Tundra Supercharged off its throne as the quickest pickup we've ever tested (it ran from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds). The Cybertruck Tri Motor also has the highest top speed, longest range, and highest payload capacity of the Tesla truck lineup. It's got a 130 mph top speed, a Tesla-estimated 500 miles of range, and a claimed best-in-class tow capacity of 14,000 pounds.

Prices for the Cybertruck start at $39,900 for the single-motor version, step up to $49,900 for the dual-motor, and top out at $69,900. Tesla is taking refundable $100 deposits now in anticipation for the tri-motor truck going on sale in late 2022 (or late 2021 for the other two models).
