Elon Musk’s Tesla Cybertruck

One of the famous electric vehicles of Elon Musk and Tesla has found an ideal complement that allows the Cybertruck electric truck to be used on the water.

 

Promoter of the project is Anthony Diamond, PhD in materials science from UC Berkeley and CEO of the company Memory Maps Inc.

Diamond showed a prototype of a very unique accessory for the electric truck that will allow it to be converted into a speedboat or a boat.

The Cybercat Catamaran and consists of an assembly kit that can be attached to the truck to convert it into a catamaran. It will be equipped with between one and five 50 kW outboard motors, which are intended to be powered by the Cybertruck’s battery pack.

According to Diamond, “once in the water, the electric outboard motors, pontoons and hydrofoils fold up and the wheels retract out of the water for quick takeoff. In shallow water or around docks, the Cybercat can maneuver precisely powered by the rotation of the Cybertruck’s wheels.”

Pricing is estimated at $22,900 to $32,900, depending on the number of outboards. There will also be a hydrofoil version of the kit for increased speed and efficiency.

The Cybertruck electric pickup truck was introduced by Elon Musk in 2019, and Tesla announced that it would hit the market in 2023.
