Tesla’s Cybertruck will have four-motor variant, Musk says

Elon Musk has said Tesla’s much-anticipated Cybertruck would come with a high- end four-motor variant.

The vehicle would compete with pickup trucks such as GMC’s Hummer EV, Ford’s F-150 Lightning and Rivian’s R1T.

Of those, R1T is driven by four individual motors powering all four wheels and GMC’s Hummer can drive diagonally.

Tesla’s pick-up truck, first announced in 2019, is made of stainless steel used in rockets and Musk has touted receiving several hundred thousand orders for the Cybertruck when preorders were opened.
