Few vehicles have generated as much hype in recent years as the Tesla Cybertruck, despite not yet being on the road. With this hype comes third-party accessory packages that allow owners to customize their vehicles to the limit, and perhaps the most ambitious of these packages is the Cybercat Catamaran.
Developed by Anthony Diamond, an entrepreneur with a PhD in material science from UC Berkeley, the Cybercat concept comes as an easy-to-assemble kit with folding inflatable pontoons and one to five 50-kW outboards, which are powered by the Cybertruck’s battery pack. The anticipated top speed for the electric cat is 22+ knots, and it will reportedly have a range of 50 to 115 miles. Furthermore, when combined with the Cybertruck’s adaptive air suspension, the vessel has the potential to be amphibious.
The price for this kit will likely range from $22,900 to $32,900, depending on the number of outboards. A hydrofoil version may be developed as well, which will offer higher speed and more efficiency.
The Cybercat concept is only in the early stages of development, but it does represent a promising merger between electric automotive and marine technologies.
