The Cybertruck is Tesla’s most daring vehicle design to date. The futuristic truck, unlike most vehicles, has an exoskeleton body and will be made out of 90% recycled stainless steel.
Despite the already groundbreaking design of the Cybertruck shown off at the unveiling event back in 2019, the vehicle in the meantime has still seen several notable design changes.
Musk has also confirmed there will be a new quad-motor Cybertruck variant. Even though Elon hasn’t shared details of the new truck, insider leaks have suggested it will have 0 to 60 mph time of under 2 seconds.
Recently we also got a sneak peek at the new interior of the redesigned Cybertruck. This new interior has some notable changes such as the white rectangular marble-looking dashboard of the Cybertruck prototype is now replaced with a more traditional triangular shape and black material resembling the dashboard of the refreshed Model S & X.
And like the new Model S & X, the redesigned Cybertruck interior now also comes with a second screen behind the steering wheel. And other changes we were able to notice include an attachment for side view screens, a less angular seat design, and a new center console.
And if all these changes weren’t enough, recently Elon Musk has teased us with a picture of a Cybertruck design with 6 wheels and a much wider body.
Every design improvement has made the Cybertruck an even more compelling vehicle than it already is, however, the futuristic truck has also seen several delays.
Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck back in November 2019. Since then the vehicle has amassed over 1 million reservations with some estimates pushing the reservation number as high as 3 million.
Demand for Tesla’s futuristic truck is through the rough. However, Tesla has delayed Cybertruck production to mid-2023. Supplier leaks have even pushed out the start of production to the end of 2023 with initial deliveries not coming until early 2024.
Elon Musk has also recently revealed the Cybertruck is sold out until 2027. This has been disappointing for those of us who can’t wait to see the futuristic truck out on the roads.
However, today we got some good news that suggests we might be able to see the Cybertruck out on the roads sooner than anyone anticipated. The information comes via Tesla Shareholder’s Club Twitter account which wrote “Tesla will deliver 30 Cybertrucks (manually built) in December. You heard it here first.”
This is exciting news. And is bound to positively surprise a lot of people. However, we will need to take this information with a grain of salt.
First, the Tesla Shareholders Club Twitter account doesn’t have a proven track record of revealing insider information. Second, Tesla doesn’t have a history of selling hand-built vehicles, which would mean, even if Tesla made 30 hand-built Cybertrucks, it will most likely be for internal testing purposes.
Having said that, I for one am still hoping the leaks are indeed true and we get to see the futuristic truck out on the roads sooner than later. As of now, this is all the information we have, however, we will be sure to keep you posted once we learn more about Tesla’s plans.
Until then, make sure to visit our site torquenews.com/Tesla regularly for the latest updates.
So what do you think? Excited to see the Cybertruck starting deliveries next month? Also, how likely do you think this leak is indeed true? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
