Cybertruck Bests EPA Estimate In Edmunds Range Test, Real-World Range of 334 Miles

Cybertruck

When Edmunds took the new Cybertruck out for a real-world range test, their initial report suggested the truck failed to hit Tesla’s claimed 340 miles on a full charge. However, Edmunds has since clarified that the Cybertruck did in fact surpass its EPA estimated range, albeit slightly.

In Edmunds’ testing, a RWD Cybertruck configured with the 82 kWh “Foundation” battery pack managed 334 miles before needing a recharge. That handily beats the official EPA rating of 318 miles for that Cybertruck variant fitted with less-efficient all-terrain tires.

Essentially, the Cybertruck exceeded its advertised range, contradicting aspects of Edmunds’ original writeup. As electric vehicles go, eking out extra miles beyond EPA estimates is quite rare indeed.

Many publications have amended their Cybertruck range test stories to reflect the fact that it outperformed in real-world conditions. Edmunds confirmed the update to their analysis as well.

“No Tesla has ever met its EPA-estimated range in our real-world testing, and now the Cybertruck falls short of Tesla’s own 340-mile estimate –– just. We have amended the original article to reflect the Foundation Series Cybertruck actually exceeded its range estimate,” an Edmunds spokesperson reiterated.

So while the sleek stainless steel beast didn’t hit the 340 mile target possible with all-season rubber, topping its EPA rating is still a win for efficiency. Interested Cybertruck buyers can expect their truck to deliver as-promised range, if not slightly more.
