Debunking Tesla Cybertruck Myths

A recent Yahoo! op-ed article set out to debunk some of the myths – safety, towing, weight and more – of the Tesla Cybertruck. Notably, the article cited Munro & Associates CEO Sandy Munro on one of the myths regarding the Cybertruck’s weight.

The author shares details to debunk the myth that “the Tesla Cybertruck will be extremely heavy” because it will require a massive battery pack to carry and a body made of 3-mm thick Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel body parts. According to the article, “it would be in a regular vehicle, not in Tesla’s pickup truck.”

According to the article, Tesla CEO “Elon Musk himself said its weight would be comparable to that of a regular pickup truck of the same size” due to its construction. To underscore this point, the article cites Munro’s comments on the vehicle’s weight and references one of Munro’s technical slides. You can check it out here:
