The Tesla Cyberbeast: A Comparative Analysis with Other Premium Electric Pickups

Tesla is finally sharing more details about the final production versions of the Cybertruck electric pickup, including battery, speed, and other stats during its delivery event on Thursday.

The more affordable Cybertruck isn’t coming for a while, but Tesla aims to deliver its maxed-out variant, the Cyberbeast, next year. We’ll compare the high-priced model to other fancy electric trucks on the market.

Tesla estimates the Cyberbeast will go 320 miles on a single charge, while Ford’s 2023 F-150 Lightning Platinum features a 300-mile range and Rivian’s maxed-out RT1 (quad-motor AWD) will go 328 miles on a single charge.

The Cyberbeast weighs 6,843 lbs, less than an F-150 Lightning Platinum (6,893 lbs) and Rivian RT1 (7,148 lbs). Supersized EVs are becoming the standard, to the detriment of everyone else on the road.

Tesla markets a maximum towing capability of 11,000 lbs for the Cyberbeast, tying Rivian and falling short of Ford’s max of 15,900 lbs.

The Cybertruck sits at 223.7″ long, Ford’s EV pickup at 232.7″, and Rivian’s at 217.1″ long. The Cybertruck is also a bit shorter than EV pickups from Rivian and Ford.

Tesla’s Cyberbeast tops out at 130 MPH, while Ford and Rivian both top out at 110 MPH.
