Someone has calculated the battery capacity of the Tesla Cybertruck it can reach a maximum of 232kWh

The Tesla Cybertruck has a maximum battery capacity of 232kWh

【Phoneauto News】As one of the hottest new energy vehicles this year, the specific vehicle parameters of the Tesla Cybertruck have not been fully disclosed yet. However, this has not deterred netizens. Some people have calculated the possible battery size based on the partial Cybertruck vehicle parameters released by Tesla.

Tesla stated on its website that the car is expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and have a range of up to 500 miles (805 kilometers). However, an unofficial report this month claimed that the initial range of the Tesla Cybertruck is around 350 miles (563 kilometers). Recently, a netizen named “Troy Teslike” analyzed the potential energy consumption and battery capacity of the Cybertruck and produced a report.

Based on data previously released by Tesla, the first-generation 4680 battery has an energy density of 229 watt-hours per kilogram, while the energy density of the second-generation 4680 battery has been increased to 252 watt-hours per kilogram. According to Troy Teslike’s calculations, when the Tesla Cybertruck is driven at a speed of 105 km/h, the estimated energy consumption is 355 Wh/km. This number is not high for an electric pickup truck and is roughly equivalent to the EPA energy consumption of Ford’s F-150 Lightning.

If we calculate based on this standard and assume that some of the energy (23%) will be reused through energy recovery, if the battery capacity is 120 kWh, the range will reach 259 miles (417 kilometers), which may be the minimum range set by Tesla for the Cybertruck. A larger 160 kWh battery pack (usable capacity) will provide a range of 345 miles (555 kilometers).

If Tesla wants the Cybertruck to have a maximum range of around 300-350 miles, then its battery pack must be about twice the capacity of the Tesla Model Y Long Range version (81.5kWh). However, if we calculate based on Tesla’s announced maximum range of 500 miles (805 kilometers), the top-of-the-line model may be equipped with a massive 232kWh battery pack, which is close to three times the capacity of the Model Y Long Range version and would be one of the largest battery capacities among electric vehicles currently on the market. However, considering the positioning of the pickup truck and the need for strong towing capabilities for some utility vehicles, this does not seem impossible.
