Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke on Joe Rogan’s podcast on Tuesday, sharing a hefty acceleration goal for the upcoming Cybertruck.
During his latest appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Musk told Rogan that Tesla is trying to get the Cybertruck’s 0-60 mph acceleration time under three seconds. The acceleration would only be available with the Cybertruck’s “Beast Mode” version, as Musk described it during the discussion.
“We’re aiming to get the 0-60 below three seconds,” Musk said. “You know, for the ‘beast mode’ version. So, we’ve got a beast mode version.”
If accomplished, the feat would be particularly impressive, seeing as the Cybertruck apparently weighs about as much as a Ford F-250, according to another statement from Musk during the conversation.
Last month, Musk said he had just driven the “Performance” Cybertruck, going on to say the electric pickup “kicks ass next-level.” It’s not clear if this is the same “Beast Mode” version he spoke with Rogan about, but it seems pretty likely.
Despite Tesla announcing the Cybertruck delivery event on November 30 in recent weeks, details about the vehicle remain unknown. Tesla hasn’t yet released pricing or configuration details for the Cybertruck, though he did tell Rogan how much the vehicle weighs during the Tuesday podcast appearance.
