Tesla Cybertruck Is Medium-Duty: Competition Is Ford F-250, Ram 2500

Dec 13, 2019 at 8:31am

A CARB filing reveals that the Cybertruck slots into an 8,501-10,000-pound class occupied by the F-250, Ram 2500 and Silverado 2500.

A new filing shows that the Tesla Cybertruck won't directly compete against the Ford F-150, but rather against the likes of the Ford F-250, Ram 2500, Chevy Silverado 2500 and other heavy hitters in the medium-duty truck segment.

As Cybertruck OwnersClub tells InsideEVs:

In a recent letter sent by Tesla to the CARB, the company says the Cybertruck will be classified as a medium-duty vehicle, putting it in the same class as the F-250, Ram 2500 and Silverado 2500, and not the same class as the F-150 to which the Cybertruck has been most compared.

To slot into the medium-duty truck class, the Cybertruck's expected weight must be between 8,501 and 10,000 pounds.

We've attached the Tesla filing to CARB in its entirety directly below:
