The Power of Elon: Tesla CEO Endorses CyberLandr, Cybertruck Dream RV
It is billed as the most revolutionary RV ever created, intelligent and adaptable, versatile and very comfortable, the perfect vacation vehicle, moving office or even the getaway vehicle in permanent residence in the event of a natural disaster. That last part includes zombie attacks, which is perfect for an overlander destined for the Cybertruck just as zombie-ready.
We talked at length about CyberLandr in early April this year, when it launched. Just to be clear, CyberLandr doesn’t exist yet, but that’s to be expected. Since it is intended for a product that has yet to formalize the final dimensions and design elements, its exact specifications depend on it. However, it’s taking reservations – and Stream It is reporting astonishing demand. Specifically, just three weeks after launch, the CyberLandr had $ 50 million in pre-orders, including all available special-priced reservations (a $ 5,000 down payment to get it at $ 39,995) that were sold out. Those who don’t have or won’t pre-order will be able to get the overlander for a starting price of $ 49,995.
So what exactly is CyberLandr? In short, it is the dream motorhome. It’s smart, compact when closed as it hides in the Cybertruck safe under the electric barrel, yet roomy when deployed, providing sleeping for two adults and two children. It has a full kitchenette and living space that can be everything you need from office to living room, bedroom or hobby room. It also has a spa-like bathroom.
More importantly, everything inside is controlled in the app, making maintenance and cost control easier. “Just as Tesla are software-defined cars, CyberLandr is the first software-defined VR,” Stream He says. “This means that instead of a wall covered with control panels for water tanks, pumps, battery status, solar panels (each with its own user interface), there is an app for your smartphone to consolidate and simplify these functions. But it doesn’t end there, the app can also be used to control lights, darken windows, view CCTV cameras and more.
And above all, the CyberLander has been approved by Elon since the beginning of the month. The CEO of Tesla is very active on social media, so much so that sometimes things he posts there slip through the cracks. It’s one of those moments: shown a video of the CyberLandr opening into a full-fledged off-road residence that’s completely self-sufficient, Musk responded with just four letters: “Fresh.” And those four letters can end up making all the difference.
As noted above, the CyberLandr has a proven track record, if the number of reported pre-orders is any indication. The promise of a perfect RV, which combines the versatility of an all-terrain vacation vehicle with the functionality of a permanent residence that is also self-sufficient, is far too alluring for many to resist. The Cybertruck itself is that, so the simple pairing would have helped the CyberLandr. The fact that it has such impressive specs only adds to the appeal.
Now that Elon is apparently “fresh” with the idea, expect the interest to increase even more. That’s the power of Elon: the power to bring down one cryptocurrency and raise another, to denounce a legion of supporters angry at “haters” and critics, or to take the place of a whole. public relations department. All in one tweet. In this particular case, it does so in just four letters, which brings the product closer to going into production.
