Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla plans to offer a “mod package” that is going to turn the Cybertruck into a boat – at least to traverse 100 meters of water
Musk has made claims before about how Tesla vehicles could float and briefly serve as a boat.
They have never been taken too seriously as Tesla’s warranty says something different about taking the vehicle into the water.
But the CEO doubled down on the claim with the Cybertruck – for which it makes more sense since it is supposed to be an off-road vehicle.
Since Tesla started deliveries of the Cybertruck last month, we learned that the Cybertruck’s Off-Road Mode includes a “Wade Mode” that pressurizes the battery pack to seal it.
Now, commenting on a statement made by Lars Moravy, VP of engineering at Tesla, about how Cybertruck owners connect an electric outboard motor to the back of the pickup truck to turn it into a boat, Musk added that Tesla plans to sell a package that will turn the Cybertruck into a boat:
We are going to offer a mod package that enables Cybertruck to traverse at least 100m of water as a boat. Mostly just need to upgrade cabin door seals.
