The CyberLandr is designed to give drivers a versatile RV experience
Auto enthusiasts eager to get their hands on a Tesla Cybertruck have been forking over cash for another new feature: the CyberLandr, a high-tech RV add-on that fits neatly in the trucks bed while having enough interior space for a shower, kitchen, and a bed, and even disappears into the “vault,” of the truck when it is not being used.
The CyberLandr has a price tag of $50,000 and has exceeded $50 million in pre-orders as of this writing. It was designed by the Las Vegas-based analytics company Stream It, which created the RV-space to be used as a portable home or emergency dwelling.
“We believe the enthusiasm is a direct result of people envisioning how this new adventure vehicle can improve their lives,” said Stream It co-founder Bill French. “People are telling us of many new uses for both wilderness and urban adventures.”
In addition to housing a kitchen, shower, and bed, the CyberLandr is equipped with voice automation, internet access powered by a Starlink dish, a water filtration system, and a smart television.
Despite the spacious interior, the CyberLandr is designed to fit in normal-sized parking spaces.
“We estimate CyberLandr will be used 2-3 times more than traditional RVs because it is so easy to take with you,” French said.
The Cybertruck itself is the brainchild of Tesla founder Elon Musk, who introduced the concept vehicle to the public during a Los Angeles unveiling in 2019.
The Blade Runner-inspired all-electric and battery powered truck was created with the intention of providing a sustainable energy substitute to the fossil-fuel truck industry. It has an estimated 0-60 mph time of between 2.9 and 6.5 seconds, and an EPA range estimate of 250-500 miles.
Depending on the model, the Cybertruck has a towing capacity of between 7,500 and 14,000 lbs. and a price range of $39,900-$69,900.
Tesla is expected to start shipping Cybertruck pre-orders out to the public in late 2021.
