The strangest pickup truck was just introduced by a start-up in Seattle not long ago. It possesses a hybrid design between a Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck and a hydrofoil with a removable pontoon bridge, electrical panels, and more.
This is a special vehicle because it allows you to carry removable devices and entertainment accessories like a true multi-purpose vehicle.
The car is researched and developed by start-up TSWLM Electric Vehicle Inc or Cybercat. In fact, its name is not clear when it is both a Cybertruck but can also be called a Cyberboat because it can move on water.
The uniqueness of Cybercat comes from the fact that it can move both on land and water. Just attach a pair of inflatable floats and axles and the car can move right on the water. Of course, these accessories can be removed and stored easily after disembarking.
The company says that installing the chassis and launching the vehicle is much faster than launching a boat. Once the kit is installed, the user can drive the vehicle on water and through shallow waters. When the water is deep, the buoys and the outer electric motor will fold down to bring the whole car to the surface and create momentum to propel the car forward.
Cybercat is equipped with 2-5 external electric motors with a capacity of 50kW equivalent to 67 horsepower, allowing to reach a maximum speed of up to 22 knots (41km/h). Of course, these numbers are calculated based on the battery capacity of the vehicle with a maximum operating capacity of 805 km per charge.
As for why you would want to use the Cybertruck as both a pickup truck and a boat, the idea of Cybercat seems to be to enjoy a quiet, zero-emissions experience on land and in water without having to own both. convenient. Cybercat’s estimated price ranges from $22,900 to $32,900, depending on engine configuration.
Cybercat admits their journey to market will not be easy and they will have to convince auto OEMs to join. So it will take a long time for this idea to appear in reality.
