A Cybertruck model appeared at the Tesla global conference in November 2019, which instantly attracted global attention. Today, Tesla has begun to prepare for the production of Cybertruck, and its required die-casting machine may have begun manufacturing, and is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year, and Tesla will also equip an electric pickup truck Cybertruck with a motorhome.
A few days ago, according to foreign media reports, in a video released by the famous die-casting machine manufacturer Itera Group, a figure of a super die-casting machine with a clamping force of 8,000 tons appeared. The company has confirmed the first order for an 8,000-ton die-casting machine, and the order comes from a world-leading new energy vehicle manufacturer.
At the end of January this year, Tesla CEO Musk revealed on the earnings analyst conference call that in order to produce the Cybertruck electric pickup truck, they need a super die-casting machine larger than the existing 6000-ton die-casting machine at the Fremont factory. It is therefore speculated that the 8000-ton die casting china machine of the Yidra Group may be ordered by Tesla.
At present, Cybertruck has won the favor of a large number of consumers by virtue of its car driving experience, hard-core off-road-like high passability, and futuristic sci-fi appearance. According to Tesla’s official data, as of the end of February 2020, the number of CyberTrucks scheduled has exceeded 500,000, exceeding Tesla’s 2020 global sales of 499,500.
Musk tweeted the question about when Tesla’s electric pickup Cybertruck will be launched, and replied: “Cybertruck will most likely be launched in the second quarter of 2021. Since Cybertruck will be produced at the Texas Gigafactory, the key is still It depends on the construction of the Tesla factory”.
2021 is a special node. Before the electrification transformation of traditional car companies, and then the accelerated siege of new car manufacturers, coupled with more and more technology giants entering the market to build cars, competition in the new energy market will become increasingly fierce. At this time, Tesla launched Cybertruck, which can further broaden its product line and enhance its competitiveness, while opening up other market segments.
In mid-March, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in social media that Tesla will equip the Cybertruck with an electric pickup truck, and RV enthusiasts can use the Cybertruck pure electric pickup to power the mounted RV. Musk said that Tesla is planning to “design an integrated suite for Cybertruck,” which also means that in the future Tesla will launch a series of industrial chains that operate around Cybertruck and lay out more subdivided areas.
It is reported that the Tesla electric pickup Cybertruck has a payload capacity of up to 3,500 pounds, a strong pulling force and a towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds, so the Cybertruck can tow a variety of trailers and campers. In addition, Tesla Cybertruck will also be equipped with a battery pack of more than 100 kWh, which can power small RVs for several days. On this basis cnc machining, it is equipped with solar energy (7.320, 0.07, 0.97%) rear cargo hatch cover, which is exposed to direct sunlight. It can be used to charge the battery pack to improve battery life.
