Tesla Cybertruck DRAG RACE

Mat has gone back to the Tesla Gigafactory in Austin Texas, and he's got his hands on the brand new ! So obviously, you know what that indicates … It's drag race time!

Naturally, there was only one rival that we needed to compare this all-electric pick-up to – the EV! The question is, which will come out on top?

Well, let's check out the statistics. Starting with the , it rolls up geared up with three electric motors, and they combine to produce 845hp and 930Nm of torque. The beginning rate of the dual-motor edition is around $49,000, but for this tri-motor Cyberbeast edition, it'll cost you around $96,000! In terms of weight, the suggestions the scales at just over 3 tonnes.

Think that's heavy? Well, that's absolutely nothing compared to the , which is available in at 4,110 kg!! Similar to the Tesla, the is geared up with 3 motors, but it's likewise up on power, producing 1,014 hp and 1,485 Nm! The cost is likewise somewhat higher than the Cybertruck, being available in at around ₤ 109,000.

So how will this one play out? Will the extra tonne of weight show definitive? There's just one way to find out … LET'S RACE!

      Tires. The hummer’s tires are road tires and the cyber truck has all terrain tires which are horrible when it comes to braking. If they both had the same tires the cyber truck would win by several meters.

      No, not really. Difference is very small, well within the margin of error, and the braking distances at 70mph is mostly dictated by tire friction.

      Most modern cars (as they are known in the UK), have relatively similar braking distances despite weight differences. This was quite within expectation and what is normal.

    That was one of the funnest car clips I have watched in a while. Looks like there will be alot of fine tuning to the software over the coming years. I use to find this car polarising but can now say I like what I am seeing. By the time it becomes available in Australia it should be a polished product and I am looking forward to testing driving it. These are going to sell well and will improve even if you purchase the first gen. Software updates make a difference.

      The hummer ev is way better looking espicially in black or orange. Higher payload towing, more RANGE, better offroading with extract mode, and better interior. It does everything a truck is for better. While also weighing 9,600 lbs and going 0-60 in 3 Seconds. 😂 unless u get the beast mode cyber truck its faster but still not even close to as good for a TRUCK

    It’s always useful to have side-by-side comparison data to get a sense of the car landscape, so, thank you for putting them up. What I think you can do differently/better in your videos, is to add a length bar as a percentage of the benchmark, to show what is higher or lower than the other (like when they do tennis player match statistics) like at 2:40, which is a more intuitive way of making sense of the data at a first glance without having to look at numbers just yet. When you have the floating numbers above the cars, put them in them in a percentage-of-a-circle, like at 2:43?
