Cybertruck: Future species redefines cars

“Every 5-10 years, a rare product comes out, a really special, very unusual product that is the most unique thing on the road.” This unique product that Elon Musk said is the Cybertruck .

If the characteristics of this car can be summed up in one sentence, it is: “Tougher than a bullet, it can drag a 911 faster than a 911.”

The Cybertruck embodies Elon Musk’s thinking about cars. By choosing the category of pickup truck, he has given him a new definition of a car. This car is also his forward-looking vision of the future interstellar lifestyle.

Cybertruck is a symbol or symbol. On the one hand, it represents Elon Musk’s vision for the future and subversion of tradition – “I don’t care if anyone buys it. We don’t make traditional, boring pickup trucks.” On the other hand, Elon Musk is also a category innovation and market A master of marketing, he has achieved a good balance between futuristic bizarre design and pragmatic functional expression: integrating the product points of SUVs, pickup trucks and supercars, while at the same time promoting a series of star models, bullet shooting Test etc. to attract enough attention. The application of cold-rolled super-hard stainless steel alloy material is the key to the mass production of Cybertruck, a new category of products.
Cybertruck: Belongs to the future and defines the present

Cybertruck embodies Elon Musk’s new product definition of the car of the future.

From a design philosophy perspective, Elon Musk hopes that the car will have a sense of the future. “The car of the future does look like it comes from the future,” rather than “the shape and manufacturing process of the pickup truck have basically remained unchanged for 80 years.” In other words, Elon Musk’s appearance requirements for Cybertruck are subversive and unprecedented. As stated in “The Biography of Elon Musk”——

“Let’s be bold and surprise the world.”

“I hope the future does seem to come from the future.”

“We don’t make a traditional, boring pickup truck, this is the kind of vehicle we can make anytime.”

Based on the above design ideas, it is not surprising that we have a unique appearance design of Cybertruck. Minimalist geometric lines and shapes, straight lines, triangles, and rectangles. These slightly abrupt and blunt design styles make the car highly recognizable. Coupled with the metallic stainless steel alloy body, people are attracted to this car. Alternative industrial-grade products have a very strange perception, and this is exactly the effect Elon Musk wants.

The design philosophy of Cybertruck also contains Elon Musk’s thinking about doomsday or dealing with disasters. “We have the most advanced technology to deal with doomsday.” Just like the huge and sturdy Noah’s Ark built by humans in response to doomsday in “2012”, Cybertruck Built to be both tough and bulletproof, the car is tougher than bullets. At the same time, the car also has a “biological weapons defense mode”. The high-efficiency filter (HEPA) filtration system in the car can prevent the air outside the car from entering, while filtering out pollen, bacteria and other pollutants in the air. It is said that it can even resist biological weapons.

Category innovation: skinnier than pickup truck

Another inspiration of Cybertruck for the automotive industry is category innovation, which is also its greatest practical significance for the automotive industry.

The first is disruptive product design that never follows the rules. You can understand this design as – “skinnier than a pickup truck, wilder than an off-road vehicle, faster than a supercar…”

It is not a car or pickup truck like before, nor is it even a crossover supercar-shaped SUV. It blurs the boundaries of car categories and brings together the characteristics of pickup trucks, SUVs, and supercars to become a new category. Of course, the model has some mediocre features that Cybertruck does not have, which are the elegance, luxury, balance and comfort of traditional car design, as well as being compact and flexible, similar to the characteristics of Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedans or MINI and SMART cars.

Underneath the subversive appearance design is the powerful expression of functions. Cybertruck’s product functions include the following aspects:

a. Passability of the SUV;

b. The load and towing capacity of the pickup truck;

c. A speed comparable to that of a supercar;

In terms of chassis performance, Cybertruck is equipped with an adaptive air suspension system, which the official website describes as “can drive on the surface of any planet”. With a maximum ground clearance of 17 inches (433 mm), it is already stronger than most hardcore vehicles. SUV. At the Baja Cross Country Rally, the Cybertruck showed off its insane off-road capabilities.

And b/c in these two aspects, Cybertruck has shown great strength that has crushed current similar products. It has a payload capacity of more than a ton and can tow more than 11,000 pounds (5 tons); with the tailgate lowered, it can load 4-by-8-foot plywood.

The powerful kinetic energy of the Cybertruck performed surprisingly well in the PK process with many powerful opponents, such as:

While towing a Porsche 911, the Cybertruck competed with another Porsche 911 in straight-line acceleration, and the result was an easy win.

When comparing the towing capacity with a number of well-known pickup trucks, the Cybertruck is not only stronger than the electric Rivian R1T and F-150 Lightning, but even better than the diesel F-350. In this round of racing/competition competition, the strength of Cybertruck is beyond dispute.

Hard core strength comes from hard core technology

The reason why the Cybertruck is “stronger than a bullet and can drag a 911 faster than a 911” and has such a powerful product is because there are many advanced details under its unique appearance. include:

In terms of materials, high-strength stainless steel alloy materials were selected. “The Biography of Elon Elon Musk” mentioned: “The use of stainless steel also introduces new possibilities to the appearance of trucks. Compared with using stamping machines to carve carbon fiber into exquisite body panels, stainless steel is more suitable for straight lines and Sharp-angled design. This gives the design team the opportunity—and to a certain extent, is forced to do so—to explore more futuristic, avant-garde, and even design ideas that may not seem harmonious at first glance.” (P300)

The unpainted stainless steel body absorbs impacts well, and the “armor-grade” window glass provides better protection and better NVH. In the video, the Cybertruck’s stainless steel body is able to withstand medium and short-range direct fire from small-caliber firearms, including .45-caliber Thompson submachine guns, MP5 submachine guns, etc.

In addition to adaptive air suspension, other advanced technologies include: torque vectoring control system, variable ratio steering by wire system (which can dynamically adjust the amplitude of wheel steering according to vehicle speed, and the turning radius is even smaller than a Model S).

In addition, the car is “the first car in the history of more than 100 years of car manufacturing to change the low-voltage system from traditional 12 volts to 48 volts”; it also uses Ethernet communication and distributed controllers, reducing 70 % of the wiring in the car.

Comment: The reason why Cybertruck was built by Tesla in about 4 years is inseparable from Elon Musk himself. The innovative spirit of scientists and the business thinking of entrepreneurs are supplemented by the efficient execution and hands-on ability of engineers. The combination of these abilities allows Elon Musk to start from the advanced design philosophy of “belonging to the future and defining the present” and thinking about What people don’t think about is what people don’t do; it uses advanced materials science, adaptive air suspension, variable electronic steering by wire and other technologies to break the boundaries of pickup trucks, SUVs and supercars, creating this “stronger than bullets” , a novel species that drags a 911 and runs faster than a 911. It made a vivid product comment for its interstellar colonization.
