By the end of the year, the Tesla Cybertruck is scheduled to hit the electric vehicle market. The fact that the Cybertruck is only 7-8 months away from production and delivery hasn’t stopped third-party companies like Stream It from coming up with wild modifications for the all-electric vehicle. The CyberLandr, a mod that would make the Cybertruck fully liveable by adding a bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom all inside the truck’s vault, has already gotten a lot of attention and pre-orders, totaling $50 million in potential revenue.
The Cyberlandr aspires to make the Cybertruck’s owners absolutely comfortable. Although it may be used as a deployable camper, it is customized to the Cybertruck’s bed, or vault, and includes a shower, bedroom, and kitchen. The CyberLandr adds 1,200 pounds to the weight of the Cybertruck, but only a 5% reduction in range is anticipated.
When the Cyberlandr was first revealed on April 6th, it received a lot of press and attention from all over the world. Owners of Cybertrucks tend to be enthusiastic about the concept, and a $5,000 deposit seems to be a reasonable investment for many of the potential owners. According to a press release, Stream It, the Cyberlandr’s parent company, has already earned “more than $50 million in future revenue.”
Stream It, Inc. co-founder Bill French said, “We believe the enthusiasm is a direct result of people envisioning how this new adventure vehicle can improve their lives. People are telling us of many new uses for both wilderness and urban adventures. For example, parents at athletic matches, or the ability to boondock and overland to places previously inaccessible to a traditional RV. We estimate CyberLandr™ will be used 2-3 times more than traditional RVs because it is so easy to take with you.”
The CyberLandr’s development is still underway, and Stream It is seeking guidance from legendary teardown expert and Tesla fan Sandy Munro. Munro is well-known in the electric vehicle community, thanks to his teardown series on the Tesla Model Y last year. Stream It hired Munro & Associates to “help ensure high quality while we scale manufacturing to meet demand,” according to CEO Lance King.
In the three weeks after the CyberLandr’s launch, King believes that only about 10% of Cybertruck reservation holders have seen the CyberLandr. He expects that a large number of Cybertruck orderers will eventually place orders for the add-on, and he predicts that about 10,000 units will be shipped in 2022.
The CyberLandr is available for $49,995, but the company is running several promotions that offer more savings for larger down payments. You can order one here.
