A new Tesla Cybertruck electric vehicle prototype was showcased at the Giga Texas opening event this past week, and it looks slightly different from the ones you’ve seen. For one, we get to see its rear-wheel steering in action, which basically allows the pickup truck to perform tight turns with high agility. When viewed from afar, the “Crab Mode”-inspired steering is barely noticeable. Read more for two videos and additional information.
As you get closer to the prototype, its imperfections start to show, like the doors that don’t match the body color as well as what appears to be a dinged rear end. Look at it from above, and the panels that form the roof don’t seem to align properly or curved for that matter, leading to unsightly gaps. Whatever the reasons may be for these issues, Elon Musk will most certainly address them before it goes into production in 2023. Anyone looking for a Tesla Cybertruck-based supercar may need to wait quite a bit longer.
Based on feedback received, we will drop mobile connector price to $200 & make it easy to order with car. Note, mobile connector is not needed if you have a Tesla wall connector or to use Superchargers. Recommend installing Tesla wall connector well before car arrives,” said Elon Musk on Twitter.
