New prototype Tesla Cybertruck shown at Tesla Investor Day


One of the more talked about topics in recent years is the Tesla Cybertruck and we just got another glimpse at it during a Tesla Investor Day. Is this finally it?

A few years ago now, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made big news showing off the futuristic electric truck with its Delorean-like stainless steel. Cybertruck is supposed to be the toughest truck on the market and ready to create a big storm in the electric truck market.

The questions remain on what will the final design look like, when it will hit the market and when you will actually be able to get one. We might have gotten one answer.

The final Tesla Cybertruck design?

In recent months, we have seen a variety of photos and videos showing off what appears to be an exterior design as a work in progress. A recent video from the YouTube channel Tesla Daily gives us a great look at this exterior design, and it looks production ready.

What is different? Key details like mirrors and wheel arch moldings are shown in this prototype.

Inside, the Cybertruck still has the very minimalist interior like most Tesla vehicles. It uses the center infotainment screen for most car functions cutting down on knobs and buttons. Plus, it has the futuristic-like steering wheel that is more rectangular rather than oblong.


What’s the hold up on production?

While we still don’t know when these will be built, we do know it has been challenging to get production going.

A recent Tweet from CEO Elon Musk pointed to the real production issues facing building this truck.

The bottom line

With an estimated 3,500 pounds of payload, 0-to-60 times under 2.9 seconds and up to 500 miles of range, the Tesla Cybertruck could be the ticket for customers who want a truck and an electric vehicle. With new rivals coming to market seemingly everyday, the Cybertruck has a lot more competition than it did in 2019.

Can it break through in the truck market? With Tesla’s must have brand image, it is looking more likely than not.

What do you think of this presumably finalized design? Comment below.
