The Cybertruck is finally here and we all couldn’t be more excited about the all-electric truck. Tesla is currently in the process of delivering the first 1000 Foundation Series Cybertrucks to customers. Foundation Series Cybertrucks have special laser-itched 3-headed Cyberbeast insignia and other unique features.
Since the unveiling event, we’ve learned a lot about the Cybertruck. We know that the Cybertruck has a range extender that increases the truck's range from 340 miles to 470 miles. Elon Musk has given us more details about the range extender.

During the Cybertruck’s first review, we’ve also seen the truck going against a Rivian R1T and Hammer EV. In this face-off, the Cybertruck broke the speed record for pickup trucks.
During Hagerty’s Cybertruck video, we’ve also seen the Cybertruck’s revolutionary steer-by-wire variable gain steering system in action and we’ve gotten a good explanation of why Tesla’s move to 48-volt low voltage architecture in the Cybertruck is so important to the automotive industry.
Yesterday, Ford CEO Jim Farley confirmed that he has received a how-to guide from Tesla titled “How to build a 48-volt vehicle.” Elon Musk has responded in return.
Cybertruck information thus far has been overwhelmingly positive however, there has also been some Cybertruck criticism. MKBHD, in his 2nd Cybertruck impressions video, says “All the numbers except 0 to 60 mph are worse than they promised, it’s the first time that’s true for a Tesla.”
So far, we’ve learned almost everything there is to know about the Cybertruck. So what is left? Well, we know that the Cybertruck is as revolutionary on the inside as it’s unique on the outside.

According to Elon Musk, Tesla has implemented several industry-first technologies in the Cybertruck. These include using a high bandwidth ethernet cable to transfer data around the vehicle, 48-volt low voltage architecture, and steer-by-wire variable gain steering system, and the Cybertruck is also the first Tesla designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the EV maker’s 4680 cells and a structural battery pack.
So given all this first-of-its-kind technology, we all can’t wait for “Teardown Titan” Sany Munro to get his hands on a Cybertruck and walk us step by step through all the innovations inside the truck.
Sandy Munro’s full Cybertruck video has not yet been released. Nonetheless, the Detroit legend has still given us a glimpse of what’s to come during his Cybertruck review.
Since his Cybertruck review article was borrowed from Tesla, Munro was not able to tear the vehicle into its components however, Sandy has still given us a behind-the-scenes of one of the Cybertruck’s high-end features.
In the video, you can see Munro remove the front panel inside the Cybertruck’s frunk. Once the plastic is off, Tesla appears to have installed the Cybertruck’s HEPA filter in a manner that is easily accessible to reach from the outside.
Just a few latches and you can easily reach the HEPA filter which should make accessing this component all the more easier.
Sadly this is as far as Munro was able to go through his Cybertruck teardown given this is a loaner truck from Tesla however, Sandy has revealed that there’s a lot of exciting Cybertruck content coming our way.
Currently, this is all the information we’ve regarding the Cybertruck’s internal workings, however, we’ll be sure to keep you posted as the first teardown videos start to hit the internet. Until then, make sure to visit our site torquenews.com/Tesla regularly for the latest updates.
So what do you think? Were you excited to see Sandy Munro’s Cybertruck teardown teaser? What are you most interested to find out about the Cybertruck once the full teardown gets underway? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
