Lauching the Tesla Cybertruck Beast: A Real-World Range Test

The world of electric trucks with the 2024 Tesla Cybertruck Beast, a formidable machine boasting 834 horsepower and an electric heart. Recently, Car and Driver conducted a real-world highway range test, cruising at a steady 75 mph to push the Cybertruck’s limits. The result? A remarkable 250 miles on a single charge, surpassing some of its competitors.

Heavy Duty

One of the standout features of the Cybertruck Beast is its heavy-duty classification, thanks to its impressive gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 9169 pounds. While this exempts it from EPA certification, Tesla claims a range of 301 miles for the 834-hp tri-motor Beast. Our test, however, revealed a slightly lower figure, yet still impressive in the realm of electric trucks.


Putting the Cybertruck through its paces on California highways, we ensured a fair comparison with other electric trucks we’ve tested. With the climate control set to 72 degrees and maintaining a steady 75 mph, we observed the Cybertruck’s performance closely. Equipped with wheel covers and a power tonneau cover for enhanced aerodynamics, the Cybertruck outperformed expectations, surpassing the Ford F-150 Lightning’s range.


In a sea of electric trucks, the Cybertruck’s range stands out, even with factors like wheel size and tire compounds affecting results. While its 20-inch all-terrain tires posed a slight disadvantage compared to competitors, the Cybertruck still managed to outshine the Ford F-150 Lightning. Despite falling short of Tesla’s estimated range, the Cybertruck’s performance aligns with industry standards, showcasing its efficiency and capability.

Key Takeaways

The Tesla Cybertruck Beast proves to be a formidable contender in the electric truck market, offering impressive range and performance. While its unconventional design may turn heads, its real-world capabilities speak volumes. As the automotive landscape continues to evolve, the Cybertruck remains a symbol of innovation and progress.
