Future Living or Camping in a Tesla Cybertruck Without Compromises

The Tesla Cybertruck might implement a midgate. This is rolling down the rear window and rear wall and dropping the seats to allow carrying things 8 feet long or have extended sleeping, camping capacity.

The Cybertruck can also easily implement third-row seating.

The Cybertruck solar roof option would add 15 miles of range every day and fold-out panels would enable 30-40 miles of range every day.

Just putting solar on the rear cover would be 4 square meters of solar panels. If the solar was 22% efficient this would be about 5 kWh for an average day in LA. This would be about 10 miles of range. 15 miles of range would be for a sunny day in the summer in Arizona.

The average annual electricity consumption for a US home is 11,000 kWh or about 30 kWh per day. A solar version of the Tesla Cybertruck could hold and power a lot of the electrical appliances in a US home. The foldout solar could provide 15 kWh per day.

Electrical power of a US home :
Air conditioning and heating: 46 percent
Water heating: 14 percent
Appliances: 13 percent (microwave, other cooking appliances, television, fridge, computer)
Lighting: 9 percent
TV and Media Equipment: 4 percent

The solar on a Cybertruck could be used to provide power for home while it is parked in the driveway.

A solar Cybertruck could power and carry a 6 cubic foot fridge while only using about 1-1.5 kWh per day. The Cybertruck could double as a mini-RV.

  1. I would also wait for it. And talking of camping stuff, how often do you take your hammocks while travelling all around the country? I'm going to get a hammock, but I'm still not sure what is the best model among dozens of them. Although I could find this useful best camping hammock web resource. It shows some great models and comparison between them. What can you say about it? In my opinion, model Kammok Roo single – looks reliable enough, as a basic model of hammock.

  2. If there are 8 feet in your bed, then you have at least 2 too many people.
    Or someone forgot to lock the dog out.

  3. 11,000 kWhr/yr divided by 365 days per year is ~30 kWhr/day for the average home. Slipped a decimal point?

  4. Is it bear proof? Had a SOB rip the side window off of a shell like it was a layer of aluminum foil once.

  5. then people start putting signs everywhere with the picture of a cybertruck and a giant red cross over it that say “no overnight cybertruck parking”

  6. Provided the truck is parked and driven in a non shaded areas only.
    There is a huge advocacy here for solar energy. According to the NREL 34% of all U.S. electricity requirements could be met by roof top solar. if we first try to use roof top space to meet water heating needs as we should, that we be less in terms of share of electricity but more of our total energy needs.
