Tesla captured the imagination of the world - for good reasons or otherwise - when it showcased the Cybertruck at an event in November. Promising the utility of a truck and the performance of a sports car, all with an electric heart, Tesla vouched for the Cybertruck's capabilities with style and panache. Now, Elon Musk has revealed that the company is gearing up to bring in an all-electric All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) which could come as a support vehicle to the Cybertruck.
Answering to a query about an electric ATV on Twitter, Musk - Tesla's CEO, said that the company's electric ATV is an absolute reality. "We’ll aim to have it come out same time as truck. Two seater electric ATV designed to work with Cybertruck will be fun!" he wrote.
Although details about the ATV have not been revealed or shared, reports suggest that it could be called Cyberquad and Musk himself has said that the launch could be with the Cybertruck which goes into production early 2021. There are also indications that the ATV could feature multiple battery packs to give it a commendable run time and power performance that could well be better than anything on current ATVs. As such torque figures could be something to watch out for.

If the Cybertruck is anything to go by, the ATV too could feature a solid steel frame capable of taking repeated blows from a sledgehammer. After all, that is exactly what happened at a demonstration during the Cybertruck launch event. ATVs, unlike trucks however, also need to be reasonably light to negotiate rough terrains.
Little wonder then that much like the Cybertruck itself, the ATV has created quite a buzz even if its mention remains in a single tweet reply online.
