Tesla is finally facing the music in the United States after it unceremoniously reduced the performance of Model S electric vehicles using an over-the-air update (OTA).

The Tesla Cybertruck is no doubt an interesting entry into the full-size pickup truck market. We say this not just because the Cybertruck is an electric vehicle but also because of its design.

There's no doubt that the Tesla Model S Plaid is an insanely fast vehicle, as Tesla claims that the car can do 0-60 in just 1.99 seconds and that it can hit 200 mph [with an optional wheel/tire package].
