Elon Musk Says The Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Smaller, Float
Last year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, announced the automaker will be coming out with an electric truck. The Cybertruck was debuted and there was a range of reactions to it.
Now, in an update on the truck, Musk has Tweeted out he is shrinking the Cybertruck. The exterior size of the electric pickup has been reduced by around 3 percent. The original dimensions of the truck listed it at 231 inches long, 79.8 inches wide and 75 inches tall, and Musk said the update would result in a 1.5 percent reduction in cabin size.
Musk also added that the design has been altered with a lower window sill and a more level centerline that could tone down the sharp lines and angles. A Norwegian design student took to Twitter to show a rendering of what the Cybertruck might look like with Musk’s suggested alterations.
Musk has said the Cybertruck will be able to float for a while due to the air suspension and up to 16 inches of ground clearance. However, Musk has previously made the same claim about the Tesla Model S sedan but never came through with proof on that.
Tesla is aiming to have the Cybertruck in production by the end of 2021 and is currently looking for a location in the U.S. to build a factory to produce it.
