Tesla is certainly on the forefront of cutting edge technology in the automotive industry, which makes them one of the most exciting companies to follow. In recent years, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been boasting the coming of new models that are meant to completely revolutionize the automotive industry. While some of the specs of these coming vehicles may sound outlandish, Tesla has already proven its ability to make incredible strides in the field of electric vehicles. Whether or not all of Musk’s plans come to fruition, the upcoming year is sure to be an exciting one for Tesla. Here is some of what Tesla fanatics can expect to see in 2021:
2021 Tesla Cybertruck
While the Cybertruck has been criticized by some for its unorthodox aesthetics, no one can argue that such a vehicle would set new performance standards in the electric vehicle segment.
This pickup truck is fully electric, and boasts a range of 500 miles on a single charge. It can also apparently go from 0 to 60mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, impressive for any pickup, not to mention an electric one. This pickup even claims to be able to tow 14,000 pounds, which beats out even top-of-the-line gasoline-powered pickups. Other features include a spacious bed, seating for six people, and an outlet that can power devices such as laptops, electric generators, and power tools using the car’s battery. It is even said to be bulletproof!
2021 Tesla Roadster
Elon Musk has said that the Tesla Roadster will be “the fastest production car ever made.” Whether or not this proves to be true, it certainly will be exciting to see the amount of horsepower that Tesla will be able to build into a car that has no internal combustion engine. The car is fully electric and claims a range of 620 miles on a single charge. Musk has said that the car will go 0 to 60 mph in a stunning 1.9 seconds, and will be able to reach a top speed of 250 mph. All of this power will be contained in a sleek body that will turn heads as it zips down the road.
2021 Tesla Model Y
Tesla has stated plans to release a fully electric crossover known as the Model Y. With crossovers taking up an increasing portion of the automotive market share, this could prove to be a very good move for Tesla. The Model Y will be more spacious than the Model 3 and more suitable for carrying multiple passengers. It will be cheaper than the Model X, and could very well become Tesla’s top-selling model. The dashboard features a 15-inch touchscreen interface that gives it a futuristic feel and makes the dashboard controls easy to use.
2021 Tesla Class 8
Tesla is not only revolutionizing consumer automotives but commercial trucking as well. The Class 8 semi will be a fully electric semi truck that will purportedly be able to travel 500 miles on a single charge and reach speeds of up to 65 mph with a full cargo load. This vehicle is so lucrative that Anheuser-Busch and Walmart have already submitted pre-orders.
