Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the upcoming Cybertruck will be capable of powering a camper.
Upon its unveiling, the Cybertruck stunned the world and was presented with impressive specs like a range of 500 miles as well as a massive towing capacity of 14,000lbs. A towing capacity that will allow the Cybertruck to tow several types of campers with zero emissions.
Now we are learning that the Cybertruck will not only be capable of towing a camper, but will also be capable of powering it. Tesla CEO Elon Musk used what seems to be his favorite social media platform and tweeted today that the Cybertruck will indeed have the capacity to power a camper:
Does this mean the Cybertruck will have bidirectional charging capacity in addition to the power outlets in the back? Quite possibly. Although Tesla already unveiled a camper configuration for the Cybertruck, to power a full-size camper, its going to need more power.
According to Musk, Tesla is planning a “sick attachment for the Cybertruck.” The automaker released a render of the Cybertruck with its own trailer:
This past weekend Musk also revealed that an updated Cybertruck design will be presented in the coming months:
Upon its unveiling, Tesla announced production of the new all-electric truck would begin in 2021 during its unveiling in 2019. A timeline that seemed a little ambitious, even for Tesla. However, this past January, during Tesla’s Q4 and full year earnings call , Elon Musk warned that the Tesla Cybertruck may not see deliveries before the end of the year adding that they would be “lucky” if they delivered any before 2022.
