The Tesla Post-apocalyptic Cybertruck

The post-apocalyptic Cybertruck

With Elon Musk’s latest Tweet and lingering rumors that the Tesla Cybertruck may be closer to production than at the end of 2022, we wonder what features will be available with the Tesla Cybertruck besides battery life, acceleration and standard towing capacity.

FSD (full self-driving), an add-on for all Tesla vehicles will be available. The vehicle will need to have access to GPS, which is fortunately in space to be able to use it. So this would be considered a post-apocalyptic feature as it doesn’t require any connection on earth.

First of all, a while ago there was a Reddit thread with some of the features that I think will be on the Cybertruck as an add-on. Here they are:

Cybercamion Camping Package

When asked if there was a camping package available for purchase, Elon Musk replied “Yes”. The camping package will be a very important part of the Cybertruck and its additional modules. This will mean that very easily from the back of the Cybertruck you will be able to unfold a simple 2 burner integrated stove. The power for these will already be available in the Cybertruck.

There will also be a few more flaps for storing dishes and maybe another for cooking on the stovetop. I’m basing all of this on the image I see in Elon Musk’s Tweet about the camping package below. It will be interesting to see how much energy it takes to cook a meal and if the sun is out, if there is even any energy being used at all.

If you’re in a wooded area and hunt and kill your own food, now you have a way to cook it easily – assuming you have a knife, water, and a pot. I believe there will be storage for these 3 things.

Cyberquad MTB Cybertruck

The Cybertruck ATV Cyberquad is an electric 3 wheeler that will be available for purchase as an add-on. The best demonstration I’ve been able to see of what this could be is someone who made a YouTube video of their own Cyberquad that they made.

It was an electric 3-wheeler with very fast acceleration and off-road capabilities. It’s definitely something you want when you’re in a post-apocalyptic world and need to be able to traverse terrains and spaces that aren’t as easily controllable by the Cybertruck.

Cybertruck flamethrower

Even though a Cybertruck flamethrower looks like a long shot, I don’t think it’s as long a shot as you might think. After all, Tesla made their “Not a Flamethrower” merchandise and it sold out very quickly. I would bet if Tesla decided to make a compartment for a flamethrower it would sell in droves as an expansion.

What would be the point of a flamethrower on the Cybertruck? To roast zombies in the post-apocalyptic era of course. Or you can use it to start a campfire very quickly – there’s that option too. If the flamethrower is an option that comes out of the Cybertruck and shoots fire from the truck, that would be amazing.

Cybertruck solar wings

This is a great option for someone who needs to park their Cybertruck or live in it or on a motorhome that is attached to it and needs to use the energy from it. With enough sunny days, you could live on the sun indefinitely.

Of course, this assumes that the sun is indeed out and giving off energy and clouds are not blocking it due to some post-apocalyptic event. If not, you can bet solar wings will be a popular option for people. Even taking the Cybertruck to work and unfolding the fenders will make sense.

Cybertruck Solar Roof

This will be the standard solar panel option for the Cybertruck and will add 15 miles or more per day on charge. This is pretty good thanks to the use of solar panels. Looks like they just go over the top of the back of the Cybertruck and that back can fold into the Cybertruck when you need to carry something big that needs it.

I have a Cybertruck on order and I will definitely add the optional solar roof – maybe even the solar fenders.

Cybertruck steel balls

When the Cybertruck was unveiled, there was a segment where the truck was hit with a hammer without a hammer. However, when a large steel ball was thrown at the window, it cracked. This is because the ball was supposed to be thrown out the window first. Hitting the side of the truck first caused the window to weaken.

I don’t know what they would be used for in the Cybertruck, but they’re heavy enough that they can certainly do damage to a zombie. Other than that, everyone knows what they would be used for.

Cybertruck stainless steel exoskeleton and solid windows

We saw a demonstration of the Cybertruck’s sturdy stainless steel exoskeleton on the day it was unveiled. The car was able to withstand the sledgehammer. How would he deal with another car or animal hitting him? Guess that would be pretty durable unless that other car was really big or another Cybertruck.

Having hard-to-break windows is also great if things get out of hand in a post-apocalyptic scenario. You don’t want it to be easy to reach while you’re inside the Cybertruck.

Cybertruck water filtration

I haven’t heard much about a water filtration system and it might not be something that comes with the Cybertruck, but one if its camping add-ons could. A water filtration system would simply take water and filter it so that it can take water from a dirty puddle, pass it through the filter, and drink it without getting sick.

The water filter should remove all harmful substances and germs that could cause problems if you ingest them.

Cybertruck several small compartments for storage

There has been speculation about many different compartments for storing things – from the middle of the front seats to a compartment under the bed of the truck. I think there will be plenty of little compartments like this to store anything you would need in a post-apocalyptic scenario, be it guns, light, or books you want to read.

Tiny Tiny Home / Camper

A question in people’s minds is, besides the Cyberlandr, what types of camping trailers will easily hook up to the Cybertruck? The main thing that would allow you to comfortably live off the grid with the Cybertruck is the motorhome. Otherwise, you would have to put a mattress in the back of the Cybertruck and cram it that way. Not very practical for me because I am tall (6’4 ”).

I’ve seen renderings online of what appear to be tiny futuristic houses and if the Cybertruck could take one and haul it somewhere that would be very handy.

There you have it, these are some of the post-apocalyptic features of the Cybertruck that I think it will have. It would be nice if the artificial intelligence was advanced enough to provide interactive personality and voice commands to the Cybertruck, but I don’t think we’re there yet.

What features of the Cybertruck do you expect when it comes out? Did I miss one here?
