The Tesla Cyber Truck

The Tesla Cyber Truck comes in three versions: a rear-wheel drive with a single motor, a dual-motor version with four-wheel drive, and the formidable Cyber Beast. With its three motors (one in the front and two in the rear), the Cyber Beast boasts a combined 845 horsepower and 930 Nm of torque. Its massive 123 kWh battery gives it the power it needs to dominate the road. However, this heavy-duty truck weighs in at 3,080 kilos, and the entry-level Cyber Truck starts at around $50,000.

The Hummer EV is no slouch either. It features a tri-motor setup (two in the rear and one in the front), delivering an impressive 1,485 Nm of torque. With its weight of 4,100 kilos, the Hummer EV is a force to be reckoned with. Starting at $112,000, this beast offers power and luxury in a single package.

The Drag Race

Now, let's get down to business. The drag race between these two titans is about to begin. It's important to note that the Cyber Truck had an advantage with its dry track, while the Hummer EV had to contend with a slightly damp track. Despite this, both vehicles delivered impressive performances.

 


Round 1: Standing Quarter Mile

In the first race, the Tesla Cyber Truck took the lead and completed the standing quarter mile in just 11.2 seconds. The Hummer EV followed closely behind, finishing the race in 12 seconds. The Cyber Truck's power and acceleration were undeniable, securing its victory in this round.

Round 2: Rolling Race

Next up, a rolling race from 30 mph to the quarter mile. Both vehicles showcased their incredible acceleration capabilities, but the Cyber Truck once again proved its dominance. It reached the quarter mile mark first, leaving the Hummer EV in its dust.

Round 3: Braking Test

Safety is of utmost importance, so a braking test from 70 mph was conducted to determine which vehicle could stop in the shortest distance. Despite the added weight of passengers, the Hummer EV failed to outperform the Cyber Truck in this aspect as well. The Cyber Truck came to a stop in a shorter distance, solidifying its victory in the braking test.

While the Cyber Truck may divide opinions with its unconventional design, its performance on the road cannot be denied. The Hummer EV, on the other hand, offers a combination of power and luxury that is hard to match.
