Major Cybertruck Details Leak Including Largest Display, Rear-Wheel Steering, More
Tesla is expected to finally begin shipping the Cybertruck to customers later in 2023. Admittedly those shipments will be in small quantities, but new details have emerged about what those trucks will be like.
Details have been hard to come by thanks to delays of the product that was announced back in 2019. Now, a number of details have been outed by someone who attended Tesla’s recent Investor Day.
According to Matthew Donegan-Ryan and a NotATeslaApp report, the truck is slightly smaller than previously expected which means that it will only carry five people, not six.
The Cybertruck will also apparently ship in two versions. One will be a dual-motor base model while the high-end alternative will be a new performance offering. All Cybertrucks will also come as standard with rear-wheel steering.
On the inside, a new 18-5-inch display will be the largest ever used in a Tesla, while an advanced air suspension will come as standard. That suspension will sit on 18-inch wheels and be wrapped in 285/65 R18 rubber. Goodyear will be the company making the tires that ship on the Cybertruck.
Other information includes the fact that the doors won’t self-present like they do on the Model X, while the stainless steel bumpers have been replaced by plastic ones. The same goes for the side skirts, too.
None of this answers one big question that potential buyers will undoubtedly have — how much will the Cybertruck cost? Hopefully we’ll get some answers to that question sooner rather than later.
