The other day, Elon Musk responded to a tweet regarding the wading depth of the Cybertruck. It’s a fair question that I was curious about myself since Rivian’s truck can three feet. Musk responded saying, “yes it will even float for a while.” I don’t really know what that means though. Floating could be an inch off the ground or it could be several feet. And I’m not entirely sure I would want my car to float if I’m crossing a deeper river. What if its trajectory got all messed up before you could get control? How long will it last? Is it supposed to float or just hover for a little before sinking?
All I’m saying is that Jeeps don’t float, and if he wants to make a good off-roader he should look generally at what they’re doing. Here’s a link to my full comparison here.
Yes. It will even float for a while.
