This is How Cybertruck does on Real World Towing Test

Popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything recently conducted Cybertruck tow test in cold weather conditions. He hitched the dual-motor Cybertruck to an 11,000 pound Hummer – close to its max rated towing capacity. His results: a distance of 90 miles at 32°F, the Cybertruck hauled the 11,000 pound load from a full 100% charge down to just 2% charge remaining.

On paper, the all-wheel drive Cybertruck is EPA-rated for 318-340 miles of range, depending on which tires you choose. But Jerry’s extreme towing test showed that real world range can drop dramatically when hauling heavy loads. He went from a projected 340 miles down to just 90 miles under max towing stress, using 35″ all-terrain tires to boot. Still, making it nearly 100 miles while lugging 11,000 pounds on the highway before needing a charge demonstrates serious towing capability.

For comparison, Cars.com tested a 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid towing a 6000 pound Airstream trailer. While the F-150 Hybrid normally gets 25 mpg, its fuel economy dropped to just 10.9 mpg while towing the heavy load. This aligns with Jerry’s Cybertruck test – towing drastically reduces range and efficiency no matter the powertrain.

The Cybertruck proved it can haul near its max tow rating for respectable distances, albeit with some range tradeoffs. And refueling after was shockingly cheap at just $13 to top up, showcasing a major advantage over gas trucks. Nonetheless, towing tests like this validate that electric or gas, heavy loads sap range and efficiency alike. But the Cybertruck’s torque and low charging costs give it promise as a competitive real world tow rig.
