Here’s how the Cybertruck’s aerodynamics compare to regular trucks


One thing that Elon Musk emphasized about the Cybertruck during its unveil is that its design is about more than just aesthetics. We already know the thick, angular steel plates makes for a stronger frame and theoretically lower build cost, but it likely has another benefit too: aerodynamics. The faster a car goes, the more it has to fight drag – essentially the air pushing back on a moving object. In general, the lower the vehicle‘s drag coefficient, the easier it is for it to ‘cut’ through the air, and the better its mileage will be (all else being equal).…
