Tesla CEO Elon Musk pronounced in Twitter that its Cybertruck can even wade and stay afloat in water. For how long, however, this has to be further revealed.
Elon Musk, who is the co-founder of Tesla addressed the question of whether the electric vehicle can withstand water.
Yes. It will even float for a while.

This concern is related to exposure of the vehicle when used in hunting or fishing, especially in crossing streams, rivers or even in flooded areas. While the CEO remained silent about the vehicle’s detailed features, he claims that the Cybertruck has floating features.
The Cybertruck wading capability
It can be recalled that the Tesla all-electric Cybertruck was launched in November of last year with a package of features. The company was proud to declare that the vehicle has specific features and capabilities.
One mentioned was its capability of a 500 – mile maximum range. However, the wading and floating features are new revelations.
Back in 2016, it can be recalled that the company’s Model S had escaped in a flooded tunnel, while it was used as a boat. This shows that Tesla has been taking advantage of lessons from the past and used these to improve the other future models.
The Cybertruck is a futuristic design that already carries an advanced and important selling feature.
Likewise, it was claimed that the Cybertruck is being positioned as a heavyweight and off-road vehicle. It is packed with improved air suspension that can adapt to higher and lower weights making it capable of camping and rugged areas. With this, it can even surpass other pick-up motor vehicles.
