In the original Cybertruck reveal of 2019:

Yep. That’s my point.
Not recent and 4 yrs ago
I just read the other thread of the Baja “owner” string it’ll go 500mi, but that’s not official from Tesla.

I pray we’ll see 450-500. Would be awesome.

If the CT still has the 3mm thick stainless with straight sidewalls 'Franz's Hammer' tough, and still includes the same Armor Glass, then I'd be ecstatic about it even with 350 mile range.

That would be a 200kW plus pack size. I struggle to believe they can fit that much battery in there.

Could be if it has Rivian efficiencies (motor, Cd, etc).

I estimate a 500+ mile range version could be made with only 180-185 kWh. But that doesn't mean the release version will be 500+ miles. I'm not even convinced there will be a three-motor variant anymore, it may be replaced by two four-motor versions, one with 300+ miles and one with 500+ miles. And the release version is not likely to be the 500+ mile version.

I hope I'm wrong, but there is a certain benefit from letting all the testers drive a lighter truck and then bring out the heavier, longer-range beast at a later date.
