Tesla has commenced the production of its Cybertruck, delivering initial units to its employees, marking a new phase in its electric vehicle lineup. Concurrently, Tesla has expanded its customization options for the Cybertruck.
Tesla now offers a paint protection film for AUD $9,750. This film, available in satin white or black, is a urethane-based product aimed at reducing scratch vulnerability, touted as an eco-friendlier option compared to standard vinyl wraps.
Additionally, Tesla provides a "premium satin clear paint film" for AUD $7,500, for those preferring the original stainless steel finish but seeking added protection. This offering contrasts with previous statements by Elon Musk, who initially indicated limited customization options for the Cybertruck's appearance.
In the context of its North American debut, the Cybertruck comes in various models. The dual-motor All-Wheel Drive is priced at approximately AUD $181,500, and the tri-motor version, named the Cyberbeast, is about AUD $226,500. A single-motor model is slated for a 2025 release, expected to be priced around AUD $138,000.
The Cybertruck features a 48V/800V electrical system and a maximum DC fast-charging capability of 250kW. Its construction utilizes a special stainless steel super alloy, eliminating the need for paint and enhancing durability.
The release of the Cybertruck in Australia has not been confirmed yet, with Tesla's Australian website currently offering updates instead of order options.
The introduction of the new paint protection film diversifies the customization choices for Tesla's Cybertruck. As Tesla continues to broaden its range of vehicle features and customization options, these developments represent the company's ongoing product evolution.
