Now I am a bakkie type of guy. Being proudly South African and a family man here in Cape Town, a bakkie needs to be part of the family. Trips to the beach with the kids and the dogs, those camping trips, and if you are an avid gardener like me, that load bin comes in very handy. And those are just a few “quality” reasons as to why we all need a bakkie!
But the ‘Bakkie’ landscape, according to Tesla, will look very different in the future! Seriously, did we really expect anything less from Tesla?
Enter the Cybertruck! An electric bakkie that reminds me of that iconic Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk. And I am excited!
This new Cybertruck has three configurations that we can look forward to:
- A single motor rear-wheel drive with 250 miles of range, 7,500-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph capabilities in under 6.5 seconds, for $39,900.
- A dual motor all-wheel drive with 300 miles of range, 10,000-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds for $49,900.
- a triple motor all-wheel drive with 500 miles of range, 14,000-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds for $69,900.
The latter is sure to get any motor enthusiasts’ engines revving!
