When Tesla debuted the norm-defying Cybertruck they surprised fans with an all-electric ATV prototype that will be sold alongside the truck.
It doesn’t seem the four-wheeler was a prop for the Cybertruck event. Chief Executive Elon Musk said Thursday during the company’s shareholder meeting that the company’s upcoming factory in Texas will produce the Cyberquad in addition to the Cybertruck.
Musk also provided some new details on the Cyberquad’s development. Noting that ATVs can often be dangerous and prone to flipping over. Tesla aims to create a safer design.
“The ATV is an interesting design challenge because ATVs are pretty dangerous,” Musk said. “And so, we want to make an ATV that is the least dangerous ATV… So it will have a really low center of gravity because the battery pack will be down low. And I think we could do some things with the suspension and just make it really hard to roll this thing.”
Unfortunately, it will be a while before the Cybertruck and Cyberquad become available. Musk said limited production of the Cybertruck will begin at the end of 2022 and volume production will begin in 2023.
