Tesla’s Cybertruck to operate as boat – Elon Musk

Tesla's Cybertruck to operate as boat - Elon Musk

Tesla Model Y Vehicle, Cybertruck, which is still in production will have the ability to briefly act as a boat if the need arises, CEO Elon Musk has said.

“Cybertruck will be waterproof enough to serve briefly as a boat, so it can cross rivers, lakes & even seas that aren’t too choppy.” Musk revealed this in a tweet on Thursday.

The reasoning behind the waterproof functionality is that the Cybertruck will need to be able to travel from Starbase — a SpaceX facility located at Boca Chica, Texas — to South Padre Island, which requires crossing the channel.

However, Musk did not expound on what “briefly” means. Tesla Model Y vehicles have been criticized by owners and reviewers for their leaky front trunks.

There are examples of other EVs, including Tesla vehicles being able to drive through several feet of water. For instance, Rivian recently posted a video on Twitter showing the R1T truck driving through a deep lap pool as part of a test.
