Austin, Texas — According to a winter driving test conducted by Spec Reviews, the Tesla Cybertruck performed at 79 percent, or 254 miles, of the vehicle’s advertised 320-mile range.
The test, which was performed by Kyle Connor on Youtube, included driving a Cybertruck on a highway in Texas and running the vehicle at around 70 miles per hour in temperatures around seven degrees Celsius.
During the test, Connor ran the Cybertruck from a 100 percent charge until the battery died, taking the vehicle off of the highway and to a mall parking lot once it reached a low percentage and then completing loops until the vehicle came to a complete stop. Connor’s Cybertruck was equipped with all-wheel drive and all-terrain tires.
Tesla has said that it plans to offer a range extender for the Cybertruck that would take up about one third of the vehicle’s bed and would allow the vehicle to go an estimated 470 miles on a full charge.
However, despite this upgrade and while many factors can impact an EV’s range from tires to weight load and low temperatures, Cybertruck reservation-holders have told Business Insider that they are disappointed by the specs and worried about the vehicles environmental performance.
