At the last Tesla Annual Shareholder Event, held earlier this month in Texas, attendees had the opportunity to meet in person a pick-up model of the new Cybertruck. Although the exposed unit still does not correspond to the final model, the model is close to the production version.
The opportunity was used by some guests for a photo booth, the design of which remained a mystery until now. The smallest truck follows the philosophy of the Model 3 and Model Y, with a completely flat dashboard and a huge horizontal floating screen as the vehicle’s nerve center.
The steering wheel is completely new, falling somewhere between the conventional and controversial yoke of the Model S and Model X. Although it is flattened above and below, using a curious rectangular shape, its edge is complete and closed. In terms of ergonomics, perhaps much better than a yoke.
The steering wheels are haptic rather than physical, and there are no paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The huge center console arms don’t stick to the dashboard; But it is still unknown if it can be converted into a third individual seat, as happened in the first concept of 2019.
The Tesla Cybertruck goes into production this summer
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, confirmed earlier this year that the first Cybertruck team will be delivered in the third quarter of 2023.
The long-awaited strength will be the first model of the brand to integrate a 1,000-volt electrical system, which on paper should allow to express the capabilities of the V4 Superchargers, to operate at 1,000 volts and 615 amps (615 kW of power). ). In the top-of-the-range variant (Quad Motor with four motors), the Cybertruck will exceed 800 km of autonomy under the American EPA cycle.
“We’re expecting to start production sometime this summer. I like to try to slow down the start of production because it’s always the slowest. It’s growing exponentially, but at first it’s always the slowest. So I don’t think so. […] production volume […] It will be next year.”
