Tesla's highly anticipated Cybertruck showcases its off-road capabilities in a recent video, effortlessly conquering a steep and rock-filled hill climb. Despite equipped with 35-inch wheels designed for both on- and off-road use, a size notably smaller than dedicated off-road vehicles, the Cybertruck navigates challenging terrain with apparent ease.
The video captures the “Tesla Cybertruck team” testing the electric pickup on a steep, rutted, and rocky trail, successfully ascending the hill in two out of three attempts. Traction, a crucial factor in off-road scenarios, doesn't seem to pose a challenge for the Cybertruck, emphasizing its prowess in maintaining momentum and overcoming obstacles.
The descending phase presents a different challenge, where precision and control are paramount. The video showcases the Cybertruck skillfully navigating the descent, highlighting the vehicle's capabilities in managing varied terrains.
An additional clip captures the Cybertruck navigating the descent with three-wheeling action, demonstrating the flexibility of its suspension system. Despite the dynamic movement, the vehicle remains stable, dispelling concerns of tipping.
Key features contributing to the Cybertruck's off-road prowess include its air suspension with 12 inches of adjustment, impressive 17.44 inches of ground clearance in Extract mode, and favorable approach and departure angles of 35 and 28 degrees, respectively. The robust stainless steel body further enhances its durability in off-road conditions, minimizing the risk of punctures or scratches from rocks and branches.
