Tesla Inc’s most anticipated vehicle, the Cybertruck, has been delayed until late 2022.
When it was introduced in 2019, there were single, twin and triple engine options to choose from. But CEO Elon Musk said Cybertruck has undergone several updates.
Musk is now answering questions on Twitter about the Cybertruck, first confirming that it will have four motors, one for each wheel. This brings it closer to rivals such as the Rivian Automotive Inc R1T electric pickup truck.
Initial production will consist of 4 engine variants with independent ultra-fast torque control for each wheel.

Musk also confirmed that the Cybertruck will come with four-wheel steering and crab mode, saying, “It will have both front and rear wheel steering, not like a tank – it can move diagonally like a crab.”
Crab mode is similar to General Motors’ Hummer EV, which can also perform sideways maneuvers.
Musk said more information will be available on an upcoming Tesla call, which he will attend and provide an updated timeline for the product’s release on Cybertruck.
