Rumors suggest that Tesla’s Cybertruck Performance model could incorporate the same tri-motor drivetrain found in the Tesla Plaid models.


  • The Cybertruck Performance model might share the Plaid models’ tri-motor drivetrain.

  • Cybertruck may offer bi-directional charging and a 240v outlet, though not yet confirmed.

  • The Cybertruck’s official delivery event date remains undisclosed, but speculation points to November 21.


Recent insights hint at the potential features of the anticipated Tesla Cybertruck. Key among the speculations is the possibility of the Cybertruck Performance model being powered by the same tri-motor drivetrain that’s currently used in the Tesla Plaid models. This information came to light during a recent Spaces call on the social network formely known as Twitter, X.

On the call, an individual who had the opportunity to test-drive the Cybertruck the previous night shared these details. Notably, this Plaid tri-motor drivetrain enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in a mere 2.5 seconds, boasting a top speed of 149 miles per hour.

In addition to this drivetrain speculation, there’s talk about the Cybertruck potentially having both bi-directional charging capabilities and a 240v outlet. However, like the drivetrain information, this too remains unconfirmed.
