— Tesla

Well, the day is finally here. After four long years of guessing, Telsa finally took the wraps (officially) off its Cybertruck, which means we now have firsthand information on things like price, power, and *drum roll* range.

What you need to know about the Cybertruck’s range extender

I, truthfully, can’t say either way if Tesla’s range extender will actually deliver on its promise of getting the Cybertruck close to 500 miles of range, but one thing I can almost guarantee is that it won’t come cheap.

There’s no official word on the price of the extender, but some Tesla Design Studio sleuthing suggests that it’ll run an additional $16,000 to the $100,000 you already paid for the top-of-the-line Cybertruck. Ouch.

Again, we’ll have to wait and see from Tesla just how much that “toolbox-sized” extender will cost, but right now, things are getting pretty pricey.

And if you’ve got cash to burn on a Cybertruck and the alleged 500-mile range was a big selling point for you, then I would suggest a wait-and-see approach, especially factoring in Tesla’s less-than-forthcoming attitude toward range in general.
