Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the cybertruck, Tesla’s hyped electric pickup truck, at its Design Studio in Hawthorne, California, just outside Los Angeles.

The most expensive version of the truck, the Tri Motor All-Wheel-Drive, will be able to carry 3,500 pounds, tow up to 14,000 pounds and go from zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

It will also be able to drive up to 500 miles on a full charge. Base models will have a range of 250 miles.

Drivers will also be able to adjust the ride height of the truck, for when they are on the highway or off-road, using an adaptive air suspension system.

Musk compared the truck to the Ford (F.N) F-150, the top-selling vehicle in the United States, to highlight the capabilities of the Cybertruck.

The base version of the truck will start at $39,900, which is about $10,000 more than the price of a base model Ford F-150, which starts at about $30,000.

Production will begin in late 2021, with production of the Tri Motor AWD version of the Cybertruck beginning a year later, according to Tesla.
