The highly anticipated Tesla Cybertruck has been making headlines since its announcement, and now, with new design leaks confirmed by Chief Vehicle Designer, Franz von Holzhausen, the excitement is ramping up even more.
As production nears, the Cybertruck promises to turn the automotive industry on its head with its impressive and futuristic design. Let’s look at what to expect.
WHAT IS THE TESLA CYBERTRUCK?
The Tesla Cybertruck is a revolutionary electric pickup truck released by Tesla in November 2019. The all-electric vehicle has a unique, angular, stainless steel exterior and a towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds.
It can go from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds and has a range of up to 500 miles on a single charge. The Cybertruck is designed to be durable and powerful, with a 30x cold-rolled stainless steel exoskeleton and shatter-proof windows.
It is equipped with an adaptive air suspension system, which allows it to drive over difficult terrain. The exterior also includes Light Emitting Diode lighting and a built-in power bank. The interior of the Cybertruck is designed to be comfortable, with attractive leather and wood trim.
The cabin also features a 17-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, and a self-parking system. The Tesla Cybertruck is an innovative vehicle that is sure to revolutionize the automotive industry.
THE COMMENCEMENT OF PRODUCTION
Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla’s Chief Vehicle Designer, recently admitted on the Ride the Lightning podcast with Ryan McCaffrey that the Cybertruck, which was initially showcased in 2019, is nearing manufacturing after many delays caused by the global pandemic and supply chain disruptions.
Even though Tesla has made some minor changes while preparing for early production, which is expected to commence around the middle of 2023, and full production is scheduled for the end of the year, Elon Musk has always maintained that the design is complete.
Following McCaffrey’s inquiry as to whether or not the design of the Cybertruck had been completed, von Holzhausen responded with “Yes, basically.” McCaffrey then stated that production of the Cybertruck would begin in less than six months, and von Holzhausen did not refute or confirm that anything would impede the initial manufacturing.
McCaffrey then stated that the production of the Cybertruck would begin in less than six months. In addition, the Chief Designer at Tesla stated that the company does not have a “pencils down” mentality when it comes to the design of their vehicles and that they are flexible with their ideas.
If there is a way to make the vehicle better, or if the company feels the need to make some changes, they will do so. In addition, he stated, “we work consistently through the entire process, and we’re constantly working on every detail,” and we are constantly working on every detail, as well as the refinement of that.” We take what we’ve learned during the phases of engineering and manufacturing development and apply it to make the design better.
THE CHANGE IN LIGHTS
A brand new design for the Cybertruck’s rear lights was shown off in the video that was captured at the Tesla Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. The previously thin red LED strip has been upgraded to a trio of shorter sections lit up in an orange hue, accompanied by two thicker sidelines of the same color.
This new configuration replaces the previous thin red LED strip. Because of this, the black bar that is located below the center strip needed to be expanded. In addition, two reverse lights were placed on either side of the license plate, which suggests that this may be the final design that will be offered in the retail version.
The most noticeable change to the interior of the Cybertruck was made to the dashboard, which went from having the appearance of marble and being white and rectangular to having a more traditional triangular shape and being made of a black material, similar to the other Teslas.
In keeping with the design of the other Tesla vehicles, the seats have a flatter backrest and are oriented more toward production. In addition, there is a small rectangular piece that is located over the A pillar.
This piece, which may be an attachment for side view mirrors and is a component that Elon Musk has confirmed can be removed by the owner, is positioned in such a way that it is visible from the outside of the vehicle.
