Dongfeng’s Fake Tesla Cybertruck Tries To Make Some Noise With 1,305 HP

The automotive world is buzzing with the news of Dongfeng’s latest creation, a vehicle that bears a striking resemblance to Tesla’s Cybertruck. This new entrant, however, is not just a visual mimic; it boasts an astonishing 1,305 horsepower, surpassing even the mightiest CyberBeast variant of the Tesla Cybertruck.

Dongfeng’s electric truck, which was showcased at the Beijing Auto Show, is built on a skateboard EV platform. It features a design that softens the sharp edges of the original Cybertruck, opting for regular body panels instead of exposed stainless steel. The front of the truck is adorned with an LED light bar capable of displaying various images, an illuminated logo, and a rugged skid plate. A small frunk adds to the utility of the vehicle.

From the side, the truck reveals suicide rear doors, power-retractable side steps, aerodynamic wheel covers, and mud-terrain tires. The rear continues the Cybertruck theme with a tent that extends from the bed, showcasing Dongfeng’s vision for an adventurous electric pickup.

Inside, the cabin greets occupants with a square-shaped steering wheel and a dashboard-spanning display. The seats feature an intriguing design with what appears to be forged carbon fiber on the backrests.

While it’s clear that Dongfeng has drawn inspiration from Tesla’s Cybertruck, they have added their own unique touches to create something that stands out in the electric vehicle market. The truck’s production details remain unclear, but given the Chinese automaker’s history of producing unconventional vehicles, there’s a good chance this electric truck will soon be seen on local roads.

As the world moves towards electrification, such bold moves by automakers like Dongfeng signal a future where electric vehicles are not only environmentally friendly but also powerful and visually captivating. Whether this truck will make it to production or remain a concept is yet to be seen, but it certainly has made some noise in the automotive industry.
