The Tesla Cybertruck is something you either love or hate. Some here at the Sparesbox office have likened it to Homer Simpson’s disastrous “The Homer” – a car so terribly designed that it put Powell Motors out of business.
However, those who are fans of the design (myself included) will be happy to know that Tesla also released a similarly futuristic, fully electric ATV named the Cyberquad.
Announced in the same premiere that unveiled the Cybertruck, the Tesla Cyberquad will be sold as an accessory to the Cybertruck and is designed to fit neatly into the rear bed. Lowering the tailgate allows you to pull out a ramp that then lets you drive your Cyberquad straight into the back of the truck.
Once it’s in the bed, you can charge the Cyberquad by plugging it into the conveniently located charging port in the Cybertruck’s side.
The Cyberquad might be a tempting addition for those who love their off-road adventures, but those sharp lines don’t look too suitable for bumpy driving in all-terrain vehicle. However, if you’re into the sci-fi aesthetic, it's probably a plus.
The announcement of the Cyberquad has not been without its controversies, however. Close up photos reveal interesting similarities between the Cyberquad’s frame and suspension with those of a Yamaha Raptor ATV.
Regardless, we won’t know for sure whether the Cyberquad is built from the Raptor platform as Tesla has yet to release any details about its design, specs and pricing, but safe to say the bodywork alone has already won over a few admirers.
Currently, the two-person Cyberquad can only be purchased as an option alongside the Cybertruck but there’s a good chance that it will be available as a standalone in the future.
And if you haven't seen the unveiling of the Cybertruck and Cyberquad yet, here’s an excellent 14-minute highlight reel:
