Tesla Tests Cybertruck’s Floating Capability by Driving it Into the Ocean

In what looks like a scene straight out of a sci-fi flick, one of Tesla’s Cybertrucks was seen cruising through the Gulf of Mexico after Elon Musk said that the electric truck can float.

Although Tesla’s warranty does not recommend driving the truck into bodies of water, Musk has gone on record as far back as last year about the Cybertrucks multi-terrain ability.

The CEO posted a note to X back in September 2022, claiming that the vehicle would be “waterproof enough” to serve briefly as a boat, allowing it to cross rivers, lakes and even seas that aren’t too choppy.

He added that ideally, it would be able to cross from SpaceX’s Starbase to South Padre Island in Texas, which is roughly 360 meters or 1,100 feet.

If that doesn’t sound convincing enough, take a look at the video below:

The Reddit user ilyasgnnndmr shared the video that shows Tesla driving a Cybertruck prototype into the Gulf of Mexico just off the shore of Port Aransas in Texas.

The Cybertruck looks to be doing alright, even though it’s being driven through shallow tides, rather than being submerged further out.

Whether or not this is Tesla having some fun or legitimate testing for a future water crossing is yet to be seen. More information surrounding the Cybertruck and its floating capabilities will likely be revealed at Tesla’s delivery event on November 30th.
