Washington, Dec. 3 (EFE). The first Cybertruck, Tesla’s “pick-up” truck, will be a version with four electric motors, as revealed Friday on Twitter by the company’s CEO, Elon Musk, who explained that the vehicle will also have independent steering on the front and rear axles.

Adding directional motion to the Cybertruck’s rear axle will allow it to shift transversely, while the four-motor version will have a motor on each of the vehicle’s wheels.

When a Tesla user was asked on Twitter about the inability to configure the Cybertruck motor on Tesla’s website, Musk replied that “initial production will be with a four-motor variant, with independent, ultra-high torque control for each wheel.”

Later, Musk said that this car “will have front and rear steering, so it’s not like a tank, it can move diagonally like a crab” and that the company will provide more information on production and pricing when Tesla reports its 2021 financial results.

The Tesla Cybertruck is expected to start production next year, although the project has been hit by several delays, allowing other manufacturers to start selling electric pickup trucks.

General Motors sells the GMC Hummer, which can roll diagonally like a crab, and the Rivian R1T, which will be able to spin like a tank, with the wheels locked on one side and the wheels on the other in motion.

In October, Tesla removed Cybertruck specifications and pricing, as well as the ability to place an order, from its website. EFE
