Future Living or Camping in a Tesla Cybertruck Without Compromises

• Next Big Future - Brian Wang

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 3 kWh per day. A solar version of the Tesla Cybertruck could hold and power all of the electrical appliances in a US home.

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.
