Only two trucks in the whole world allow drivers to have the convenience of a truck bed while having zero emissions the 2021 tesla cyber truck and the 2021 rivian r1t while the cyber truck baffles many with its awkward looks it does allow drivers to meet their environmental goals while still lugging something around in the back the rivian r1t boasts some

Incredible speed and the company is open about what they’re putting under the hood so if you’re interested in this next generation of automobiles keep watching this video to discover all the features so let’s get started with this epic battle design and technology starting with the basics the rivien r1t measures 217 inches from bumper to bumper 79.3 inches

Wide and 71.5 inches tall at 231 inches long the cyber truck has a considerably bigger footprint it’s 79.8 inches wide and 75 inches tall so the two models are comparable when it comes to width and height rivian pegs the r1ts weight at 5886lbs while tesla has chosen not to reveal what its cybertruck tips the scale at odds are it’s in the 6000-pound ballpark too

The company hinted it’s developing the model as a class 2b truck meaning it will compete in the same segment as the ford super duty and the production model will be a little bit narrower than the concept that previewed it design is subjective so we won’t spend too much time talking about it let’s just say the cyber truck is well a cyber truck while the r1t wears

A much more conventional design with relatively familiar proportions besides it’s what’s inside that counts right the r1t offers space for five passengers in a cabin designed to be as relaxing as possible everything is where you expect it to be there’s a digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel and a touchscreen for the infotainment system embedded

Into the middle of the dashboard the concept’s interior looked nearly ready for production and we don’t expect it will change significantly in the coming months stepping into the cyber truck is a little bit what commuting on mars must feel like its cavernous cabin offers seating for six and it takes the minimalism tesla is known for to new heights with a 17-inch

Touchscreen propped up right in the middle of the dashboard there’s no instrument cluster and the driver steers using a rectangular till are often seen on concept cars we imagine the steering wheel will be round when the truck reaches production but it’s just a prediction yoke steering could be seen in some trim if everything goes in tesla’s favour regarding the

Permissions of using it for the rest what you see is most likely what you’ll get as tesla is known for bringing unusual designs to production the touchscreen runs a new version of the company’s infotainment system that its other cars like the roadster will receive brivian pledged the r1t will offer a long list of electronic driving aids like lane keeping assist

And adaptive cruise control and buyers will be able to order level 3 semi-autonomous technology at an extra cost level 3 doesn’t make the r1t driverless far from it but it can take over on the highway when certain conditions are met and allow the driver to take his or her attention off the road there are legal hurdles to clear before making such a system available

However audi notably tried to bring its technology to america and decided it wasn’t worth the investment due to the immense amount of red tape it would have needed to clear the cyber truck is available with tesla’s autopilot suite of electronic driving aids and buyers can pay extra for full self-driving so it will be totally autonomous right no way those who

Pay extra for full self-driving will get a truck that’s ready to receive autonomous technology when tesla finalizes it and when the government declares it safe to roll it out no time frame has been provided yet and we expect electric trucks will arrive before self-driving cars specifications the r1t and the cybertruck are both electric but their specifications

Sheets look nothing alike rivien has also been markedly more transparent about what powers its truck than tesla buyers will have three lithium ion battery pack sizes to choose from 105 kilowatt hours 135 kilowatt hours and 180 kilowatt hours they respectively correspond to a maximum driving range of 230 300 and 400 miles and because ultra quick electric cars are

All the rage right now the three r1t variants will boast a 0-60 mile per hour time of 4.9 3.0 and 3.2 seconds respectively that’s seriously quick interestingly the battery pack regardless of its size will zap four electric motors rivian chose to position a motor behind each wheel rather than one per axle which is the norm in the electric car segment this strategy

Makes the truck a little bit more complex and more expensive to build but it’s a real boon off road because it’s easy to control precisely how much torque is going to each wheel in real time in theory the r1t can be front rear right or left wheel drive how cool is that this layout enables a neat tank turn feature too tesla will also offer the cyber truck with

Three battery options but it hasn’t revealed how big each one will be there’s an entry-level model with 250 miles of range and a 0-60 mile per hour time of 6.5 seconds a mid-range model that delivers up to 300 miles of range and takes 4.5 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour from a stop and a range-topping model with a 500-mile range and a jaw-dropping 2.9 second

0-60 mile per hour time acceleration times are impressive but they’re rather useless in this context no one gets a pickup to win races truck buyers are more likely to care about towing capacity payload and off-road prowess the r1t boasts a 1764-pound payload and a towing capacity of about 11 000 pounds fitted with an adjustable air suspension it has 14.2 inches

Of ground clearance a 34-degree approach angle and a 30-degree departure angle the cybertruck’s payload is rated at 3 500 pounds which is massive and it can tow up to 14 000 pounds also fitted with an adjustable air suspension it sits 16 inches off the ground and offers approach and departure angles of 35 and 28 degrees respectively pricing and availability

The rivien r1t starts at sixty seven thousand five hundred dollars for the explore package and you can reserve one by sending the company a refundable one thousand dollars deposit the launch edition is now out of stock which will be the first one to hit the streets pricing for the adventure package with large battery pack that provides four hundred plus miles of

Range is eighty five thousand dollars to sweeten the deal buyers will be able to claim a 7 500 tax credit from the federal government because rivian is a new automaker that hasn’t built a single car yet rivien purchased a former mitsubishi factory in normal illinois and it’s in the process of retooling it to build the r1t and a technically similar suv named r1s

Deliveries are tentatively scheduled to begin in november 2021 we say tentatively because rivian is a new automaker that has never built a car before so hiccups aren’t inconceivable with that said shareholders ford and amazon are respectively providing expertise and dollars to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible it’s in their best interest ford’s lincoln

Division will build a rivien based suv while amazon will monetize its investment in the firm by buying thousands of delivery vans from it if it’s the tesla you’re after you can secure an early build slot by sending the company a refundable one hundred dollars deposit the entry level rear wheel drive model starts at thirty nine thousand dollars the mid-range truck

Carries a 49 000 base price and plan on spending 69 000 for the range-topping model tesla buyers stopped being eligible to receive a tax credit for the federal government on january 1 2020 but they may nonetheless qualify for state-sponsored incentives tesla predicts it will start building the cheaper variants of the cyber truck in late 2021 first deliveries are

Expected by the end of 2021 with volume production in 2022 overall both the trucks seem to be quite impressive and will surely be on streets within a year so which one would you prefer to buy let us know in the comments stay tuned at the electric arena for all the latest tesla and electric vehicle news
