Tesla Cybertruck and CyberLandr to Employ 48V Electrical System

Tesla announced during its most recent Investor Day that it will ditch the 12 volt electrical system used in vehicles for over 60 years in favor of a more modern 48 volt system. CyberLandr, the telescoping RV truck camper for the Cybertruck, announced it had also independently planned to utilize a 48 volt electrical system.

According to the press release, the 48 volt system minimizes wiring by connecting lights, cameras, sensors, and other devices to local controllers around the vehicle and then connecting those controllers to the main processing units. This reduces complexity and weight, and makes assembly easier by reducing the amount of wiring for both the Cybertruck and CyberLandr.

“Using a 48 volt system eliminates the need for 12 volt lead-acid batteries, which tend to fail every few years, and means that both the pickup and RV will benefit from the same modern architecture. We believe this will make Cybertruck and CyberLandr the first in their respective industries to adopt this technology,” said Lance King, CyberLandr chief designer and CEO of Stream It, Inc.

CyberLandr has seven compute nodes, each connecting through a single cable that carries both 48 volt power and data. These nodes control the dimming of lights, exterior surveillance cameras, the LED lighting, and much more.

Additionally, during its Investor Day call, Tesla outlined what it will take to convert Earth to sustainable sources of energy that will improve lifestyles while costing less than sustaining the current fossil fuel economy.

The Tesla Cybertruck is scheduled for release in late 2023. The 48 volt battery that Tesla will be employing will reportedly last the entire life of the vehicle.

Elon Musk said, “What we are trying to convey is a message of hope and optimism…based on actual physics and real calculations not wishful thinking…Earth can and will move to a sustainable energy economy, and will do so in your lifetime.”

The CyberLandr truck camper was honored last year with the Green Concept Award from the European Union for its eco-friendly features.

CyberLandr’s aerodynamic design reduces or eliminates drag so it has a minimal effect on range. CyberLandr’s solar panels provide clean energy and even help recharge the Cybertruck’s battery to increase range and/or the amount of time you can stay off-grid.

The invisible, electric induction cooktop can bring water to a boil in half the time of a gas range while keeping the countertop cool enough to touch. Heating and cooling will also utilize the Cybertruck’s battery, which completely eliminates the need for fossil fuels like diesel and propane and the safety issues, smells and inconvenience of refilling that come with them.

CyberLandr is also equipped with a recirculating shower for longer showers without running out of water. Shower water is heated inline, and recycled water is passed through a four-stage filter that includes UV light sanitization. With this design, CyberLandr doesn’t have to carry as much water, reducing its weight and the frequency of filling the freshwater tank.

CyberLandr allows people to take their living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and office anywhere and everywhere they go. You can own the Cyberlandr for a cool $50,000.
