When the Tesla Cybertruck was announced in November 2019, the first thing that impressed us about it was its strange and bizarre shape.
This is especially unusual for companies that have spent a lot of time improving the aerodynamics of the Model
and have achieved a drag coefficient of only 0.23.
But less than a week after Cybertruck was announced, aerospace engineers tested the aerodynamics of the pickups and found it to be very efficient.
Unfortunately, he didn't want to make a claim based on his simulation, so he didn't know what the drag coefficient of Cybertruck would be.
Fortunately, according to Numeric Systems, the company that developed the simulation software, there are currently about
The study was conducted by a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) engineer at a company called Alex Lazaro Pratt.
The engineer states that this number is almost double that of the Model S or Lucid Air, with a score of
for the latter.
The average drag coefficient of most cars these days is between
and 0.3, does that mean that Cybertruck's size is very inefficient? not good.
Various independent studies have shown that the
has a value of about
has a value of about 0.56.
Ram's official figures for the quad cab
model claim that this particular model is actually more aerodynamic than Cybertruck, which has a value of only 0.36.
