I learned about this from Tesla Cybertruck’s chief designer Franz von Holzhausen. Yesterday he joined the Ride the Lightning podcast with Ryan McCaffrey where he talked about many things, including the Cybertruck. Tesla’s Chief Designer confirmed that the Cybertruck’s design was finalized, and production was nearing. But he said something, that I think is bigger than the 9,000 Giga Press, currently being installed at Giga Texas for the production of Cybertruck.
Von Holzhausen also confirmed that Tesla is considering adding a Yoke steering wheel to the Cybertruck as a standard option. This follows the introduction of the Yoke steering wheel in the updated Model S and Model X, where many customers continued to choose the standard steering wheel in the updated Model S and Model X. This has led Tesla to deliberate on which type of steering wheel should be included as standard in the upcoming Cybertruck. Whatever decision Tesla makes, it looks like the electric vehicle maker is at least listening to its customers and taking their preferences into account.
However, the intrigue is somewhere else. Tesla's chief designer also mentioned that the company has brought features to Cybertruck that have not yet been announced. We don’t know what those features are. Von Holzhausen didn’t even hint at what these could be, creating additional intrigue. Thes unannounced features are going to make the Cybertruck even more interesting. I think these features will soon be announced when Tesla announces yet another very big thing missing from the Cybertruck: the price. So please, follow us, as I am going to report the details as soon as Tesla announces them or they become available in the Tesla community chatter.
The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most highly anticipated vehicles of the year. While much of the vehicle's specs and features are known, the most important part - the price - remains a mystery. Tesla initially planned for three configurations, the Single Motor, Dual Motor, and Tri-Motor, priced at $39,990, $49,990, and $69,990 respectively.
However, due to supply chain constraints, inflation, and other factors, these prices are no longer applicable.
Musk has stated that the Quad-Motor configuration will be the first one offered, but no price has been announced for it yet. Additionally, the fate of the Single and Tri-Motor configurations remains unknown. It is likely Tesla will increase the prices of the Cybertruck compared to what they were in 2019, as long as some of the configurations remain the same.
The Cybertruck is sure to be a game-changer in the automotive industry. Its unique features, such as the armored body, will make it stand out from the competition. However, the biggest question on everyone's mind is how much will it cost? We will just have to wait and see what Tesla has in store for us.
