The top-line Cybertruck is expected to deliver a 500+ mile range.
The Cybertruck’s has never left the West Coast.
Tesla’s Supercharger network will make the trek easy.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s life, albeit a short one so far, has been isolated to the West Coast, but that may change as a road-trip is in the making. At the moment, it’s actually locked up in the Petersen Automotive Museum, which is temporarily closed again following the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many East-Coasters, and probably loads of people between the two coast who would love to get a glimpse of the Cybertruck and, apparently, all it took to make it happen was a tweet.
Sure, we will aim to do a cross-country drive with Cybertruck later this year

It’s no secret that Tesla vehicles are appreciated all over the US, and Canada for that matter. In fact, Tesla is the rare automaker that might come out of this pandemic unscathed, if not ahead. Most manufacturers are suffering massive losses so far this year, some reaching a 50% decline in deliveries while Tesla was down only 5% compared to the same period last year. Tesla’s stock has actually soared in the last 12 months, recently beating out Toyota as the most valuable car company in the world.
How is all this possible with fewer than 180,00 deliveries so far this year? The Tesla Cybertruck, or rather what it represents, is one reason. Its polarizing styling, incredible power, performance, and range are scarcely believable but it creates a buzz for all of Tesla’s other models, including the Model Y SUV.
A cross-country road trip in a Cybertruck would undoubtedly generate an enormous amount of traction on all social platforms for the truck itself, the brand, and its Supercharger network. As it crosses the nation, it would stop in areas like Texas where interest in the truck is high. And, for good measure, we’re certain the Tri-Motor AWD version will be selected for the trip, and we’ll likely see it at a dragstrip or two as well.
