Tesla ATV Rumors, Expectations, and Specs – Tesla Quad

Nobody would blame you for not paying a lot consideration, letting the information of the Tesla ATV slip by. Tesla has a lot happening at the moment with their large manufacturing unit expansions, full-self driving developments, and to not point out, an entire three automobiles (Roadster, Semi, Cybertruck) of their being pregnant phases. The Tesla Quad would possibly simply find yourself as a small speck within the grand scheme of all issues Tesla, however can it change the ATV recreation?

It wouldn’t shock me if a few of you may not even have been conscious {that a} Tesla Quad was unveiled. The Tesla Quad Bike was revealed alongside the Tesla Cybertruck, which unsurprisingly overshadowed no matter limelight the Tesla ATV would have had. On condition that it was revealed in direction of the tip of the Cybertruck presentation and initially was said to be an possibility for the electrical truck, the electrical ATV did have an ‘eh, why not?’ vibe about it because it appeared like one thing Tesla scrounged collectively shortly as a enjoyable venture.

However, would possibly this new Tesla ATV function a catalyst to produce other journey car manufacturers usher in electrical ATVs of there personal? It might positively assist the broader electrification aim, but when it doesn’t succeed at that, not less than it contributes to Tesla’s ‘S3XY CARS’ (Mannequin S, Mannequin 3, Mannequin X, Mannequin Y, Cybertruck, ATV, Roadster, Semi) meme.


Not a lot is thought concerning the Tesla ATV except for what we noticed with our personal two eyes, and even that may very well be topic to alter. The design is the one factor that we have now any concept about and who is aware of if that’s even last. Anyhow, the Tesla Quad comes with a design that’s not too in contrast to the Cybertruck that it was unveiled subsequent to.

Retaining with the identical design language because the Cybertruck, the Tesla ATV is wrapped in sharp angles and what appears to be the identical physique materials because the Cybertruck. The Tesla ATV additionally makes positive to characteristic a really comparable mild bar within the entrance additionally seen on the truck. Total, the Tesla Quad appears like the proper praise to the Cybertruck, which is smart given that it’ll initially solely be out there to be paired with the Cybertruck, as soon as that makes its manner into manufacturing.

The Tesla ATV nevertheless, does certainly appear to be an ATV, whereas the design could be dripping in Cyberpunk goodness, it isn’t so radical of a design that you just wouldn’t be capable to instantly inform what it was. In reality, individuals extra properly versed in ATVs than me have identified the resemblance the Tesla ATV has to the Yamaha Raptor. This factors to the chance that Tesla won’t exit of their technique to construct an ATV from scratch (as that may appear to be a waste of time, cash, and sources) and as a substitute will use an present ICE ATV just like the Raptor as their base for brand new physique panels and electrical motor. Some are even saying the motor proven on stage is an identical to the one utilized by Zero Bikes.

The design as an entire is nice in case you are into the angular, chilly, cyberpunk aesthetic. Even in case you are not a fan of the Cybertruck and it’s imposing virtually brick-like design, you may need higher luck with the Tesla ATV design because it actually isn’t as huge of a departure from the normal look because the Cybertruck was.


I severely doubt that the Tesla Quad might be attempting to satisfy any kind of excessive expectations upon launch. I think about that most individuals perceive that the futuristic electrical ATV is nothing greater than a enjoyable facet venture for Tesla and on the finish of the day will operate as an costly toy for most individuals who purchase one. 

That doesn’t imply that it’ll fail in offering one other avenue for individuals to affect their lives, however with solely about 230,000 ATVs being sold in 2015, it won’t have the identical influence as electrifying the automotive sector.

With all of the being stated, information of the Tesla ATV has been tight-lipped and your guess is pretty much as good as mine concerning some other specifics surrounding the electrical ATV. I do nevertheless think about that Tesla will deliver one thing that’s as aggressive as could be.


As of this present second, the Tesla ATV price is unknown, however we might hope that it could be in the identical realm as different ATV costs. Taking a cursory look by means of the ATVs supplied by makers equivalent to Yamaha, Can-Am, and Polaris, we see that the typical ATV appears to be within the $8,000-$10,000 vary, with some going up all the best way to $15,000.

Sadly, that doesn’t actually make developing with a hypothetical value any simpler, as we have no idea how a lot of the Tesla ATV is definitely being constructed by Tesla. As I said earlier than, plainly it’s being primarily based of the Yamaha Raptor for the physique, nevertheless it additionally looks like the electrical motor itself can be coming from a third-party.

A latest video from Rich Rebuilds chronicling the constructing technique of the CyberQuad concerned Wealthy sourcing an electrical motor from a Zero Bike. After pouring over photos of the Tesla ATV that was proven on the Cybertruck reveal, he seen that the motor appeared similar to the electrical motor he took from the Zero Bike. In line with him, the motor design is somewhat distinctive and given his expertise tinkering with Teslas, there could be some benefit to his claims. If it does find yourself being true, did Tesla use a third-party motor solely as a result of it was a prototype, or will we see the manufacturing model additionally use a Zero motor in an effort to avoid wasting on manufacturing prices for what is going to in the end be a low quantity car?

It’s nonetheless unknown, however whether or not Tesla decides to go in-house on loads of parts for the manufacturing model will dictate the pricing closely.  Tesla likes to be aggressive with pricing, however I nonetheless consider that the Tesla ATV might be costlier than the typical gasoline ATV even when they determine to go third-party with loads of parts. I’m anticipating a value across the $10,000 mark.


As we stated, we don’t know the Tesla ATV value, however we on the very least have a greater concept of when it is going to launch. 

Musk by way of Twitter that they’re aiming to have it comes out similtaneously the Cybertruck.

As of the writing of this text, the Tesla Cybertruck tri-motor and dual-motor variations are anticipated to start out deliveries on the finish of 2021. I assume we can see if Tesla can meet that supply window when reservation holders are requested to finalize their orders.

The wording of the above tweet does give hope for these individuals who need a Tesla ATV however aren’t available in the market for a Tesla Cybertruck. The following concern might be how lengthy will its exclusivity to the Cybertruck final earlier than Tesla permits non Cybertruck homeowners to purchase it (or even when Cybertruck homeowners should buy the ATV after the very fact). As of now, we don’t know when the Tesla ATV order books will open.


As soon as once more, the specs for the Tesla ATV are anybody’s guess. The electrical ATV market isn’t precisely an expansive one (as you’ll quickly see), so it’s arduous to evaluate what specs are even acceptable. To have some basis I’ve elected to have a look at what Zero Bikes provide because it appears like their powertrain would possibly find yourself being what powers the Tesla ATV.

Trying by means of the lineup, we see motors that produce anyplace from 46 hp to 110 hp, metropolis ranges of 82 miles to 179 miles, and battery sizes of seven.2 kWh to 14.4 kWh. On condition that ATVs are typically slower and fewer environment friendly than the typical bike, we will take into account these specs to be the height of what Tesla may ship and can in all probability be significantly much less.

ATVs aren’t used for any kind of long-distance journey, so even when Tesla may ship a variety of ‘simply’ 100 miles, then it is going to already be on par with loads of gasoline-powered ATVs. If Tesla will certainly go together with a Zero motor it could be cool to think about sticking their 110 hp motor within the chassis, however contemplating the Yamaha Raptor makes rather less than 50 hp, it wouldn’t shock us if Tesla will go for the 46 or 70 hp possibility.

Taking a look at what Wealthy was capable of obtain together with his construct, totally different sprocket configurations gave a prime velocity of anyplace from 68 mph all the best way as much as an insane 102 mph. The 0-60 mph was additionally insane because it was capable of get all the way down to 4.2 seconds on all-terrain tires and three.9 seconds on avenue tires. The vary wasn’t measured however Wealthy did state that given all of the testing they did in the course of the day, that he was assured that you’d simply get a full-days experience out of the electrical ATV.

So it’s setting a superb priority, however in fact, we can’t be uncertain if any of will probably be relevant to the manufacturing model and what sort of choices Tesla will make. The issue with speculating the specs is that we have no idea the worth. If we knew the worth it could be simpler to estimate the focused specs and vice versa, however we have now neither. This Tesla Cyberquad may find yourself being a $6,000 toy making solely about 30 hp and 40 miles of vary, or it may go to $15,000 and have a 100+ mile vary and big motor to go together with it. If Tesla intends to match the Raptor then count on an 80-mile vary, 75 mph prime velocity, and a 5-6 second 0-60 mph time.


Previous to beginning this text, I used to be blissfully unaware of absolutely the dearth within the electrical ATV market. Frantic looking and ideas of “this may’t be all of them” had been met with a reply of, “sure, that is all of them”. Because it seems, the Tesla ATV will mainly haven’t any competitors on the electrical facet of issues.

Beneath was presupposed to be a desk of simply electrical ATVs, however seeing that having solely three entries was too miserable, I included an electrical UTV (like an off-road golf cart), in addition to two common gasoline-powered ATVs that I think about, might be opponents to the Tesla ATV.

  Value Vary Battery Dimension High Velocity
DRR Stealth E-ATV $8,499 35 miles ~4 kWh 35 mph
EcoCharger Lithium Status $26,430 62 miles ~11.4 kWh N/A
EcoCharger Eliminator II $19,821 30 miles 7.2 kWh N/A
Polaris Ranger EV (EUV) $11,899 ~50 miles 11.5 kWh 25 mph
Yamaha Raptor 700R (Gasoline) $8,799 50-85 miles 2.9-gallon tank ~75 mph
Can-Am Renegade 850 (Gasoline) $10,299 80-120 miles 5.4-gallon tank ~75 mph

To my shock, there are not any electrical ATVs being produced by any of the massive manufactures. I assume given the relative low-volume of ATV gross sales, it doesn’t make a lot sense for them to undergo the hassle of redesigning the whole lot. What few electrical ATVs not made for teenagers that I may discover had been from EcoCharger and DRR.

Curiously sufficient, all three competing electrical ATVs appear to be constructed extra for utility. All of the fashions supplied have flat fronts and rears to accommodate railings for use with hauling round something that may be tied down. That is in distinction to the game ATV archetype that the Tesla Cyberquad (in addition to the Raptor) goes with because it’s aggressive fairings don’t depart a lot room for something to be tied to. Whereas Tesla has marketed the Cybertruck as able to becoming in at development websites and different out of doors workspaces, plainly the Tesla Quad is absolutely meant for joyrides.

Additionally, let’s all cross our fingers that the Tesla Quad might be nearer in value to the DRR and gasoline ATVs somewhat than the EcoCharger ones, as a result of I feel a $20,000 electrical ATV might be a tough promote, particularly for one thing that may initially be an add-on to the Cybertruck.

In order that’s all we all know so far, and sadly, it’s not a lot. The Tesla ATV remains to be shrouded in thriller and it looks like we must wait till subsequent 12 months earlier than we hear any extra information about it. The success of the Tesla ATV may have Tesla department out to different off-road automobiles equivalent to electrical filth bikes like Musk talked about in a previous tweet. Who is aware of, possibly a Tesla bike or perhaps a Tesla filth bike is within the works and able to be unveiled quickly. Highway bikes nevertheless are off the menu resulting from Musk having an accident in his early years, however I don’t suppose that may cease followers from making a Cyberbike of their very own to fill that hole.

How do you guys really feel concerning the Tesla Quad? Do you may have excessive expectations? What do you suppose the worth and specs will find yourself being? Tell us down within the feedback under.
