Elon Musk says the Tesla Cybertruck will have a built-in solar charging option

In a Friday tweet, Musk revealed that the Cybertruck is getting “an option to add solar power that generates 15 miles per day, possibly more.”

Solar charging could be a nice way for Tesla to make Cybertrucks more profitable. Tesla customers commonly opt for extras like “full-self driving” abilities and specific colors that plump up the price tag.

Tesla’s Cybertruck is a vehicle that has been a long time coming. By providing the Cybertruck with a way to generate power on its own, the addition of a built-in solar panel system into the pickup would enable the vehicle to gain more range as it stays parked in an outdoor spot.

Such a system could even be useful for homeowners whose Cybertrucks will be parked at the driveway, where the vehicles will likely be exposed to the sun on a regular basis.
