Secrets Exposed: Tesla Hasn’t Told Us The Whole Story About The Cybertruck
The Tesla Cybertruck was arguably one of the most anticipated vehicles of 2019. There was a constant buzz surrounding it the preceding year of its launch. Somehow, Tesla managed to keep it away from carparazzis very well. Not a single soul on earth got a glimpse of it, even when Tesla teased it at the Model Y’s launch. But sometimes, things come out in the open, like these secrets that give out a lot about the production-spec Cybertruck.
Courtesy of a patent filed by Tesla with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and an eagle-eyed Twitter user, a few things about the unconventional truck have surfaced on the internet, including its range!
New Facts About the Tesla Cybertruck Have Emerged
Some time ago, Tesla unveiled their boldly-styled Cybertruck. The futuristic-looking EV puck-up truck was and still is talked about a lot. We also know that it will be on sale sometime in late 2021. Despite its official introduction, however, the Cybertruck remained a work in progress and now, more details about it came out.
Tesla Should Definitely Build a Halo-Inspired Cybertruck Warthog
Don’t look now, but a collaboration between Halo and Tesla could be more than just a pipe dream.

Frank Stephenson’s Review of the Tesla Cybertruck Is What Reviews Are Meant to Be
Those of you that are familiar with Frank Stephenson’s ever-growing YouTube channel know the former designer’s blunt, straight-to-the-fact manner of giving the verdict on a particular design. Only this time around, he dissects the Tesla Cybertruck, one of the most polarizing cars to reach the public’s eye in recent times.
The Cybertruck was unveiled more than a year ago and in typical Musk fashion, it shook the internet then split it in two: those that loved the edgy pickup and those that loathed it. Care to know Franks’s Stephenson’s opinion?
Tesla’s Electric Semi Could Run up to 621 Miles Between Charges
People have major range anxiety when it comes to passenger EVs; so you can imagine how commercial truck operators must feel about electric cargo haulers. Back in 2017, Musk had said that the upcoming commercial Semi would achieve as much as 500 miles of range on a single charge. It seemed almost impossible back then, but battery technology has taken huge strides. Three years later, Tesla is now talking about a 600+ miles range. Does it still seem unbelievable? I don’t think so.
This Is Definitely What The Tesla Cybertruck Should Look Like
The Tesla Cybertruck is, without question, one of the most polarizing vehicles in recent memory. It doesn’t abide by traditional design norms of a pickup truck, and yet, it’s the audacity in Tesla’s design that has kept the Cybertruck in the headlines.
Tesla got us talking about the Cybertruck more than most vehicles, and, at least to a select few, it jump-started enough creative juices that we get to see different renderings and “interpretations” of Tesla’s upcoming all-electric. One of these interpretations comes to us by way of automotive 3D concept artist Shubbak 3D.
The Cybertruck is Riskier for Tesla and Elon Musk Than You Realize
What more can we say about the Tesla Cybertruck that hasn’t already been said? It’s awesome, it’s ugly, it’s interesting, it will work, it won’t work – we’ve said and heard it all. But, there’s something that you haven’t heard quite yet, and that’s the cold hard fact that neither Tesla nor Elon Musk did any market research before designing and developing the Cybertruck. This is about as risky as it gets for an automaker, and it’s probably a big reason why models like the Mercedes X-Class just couldn’t cut the mustard.

The Cybertruck has been reimagined as a heavy-armored truck, combat truck, a vehicle fit to be driven on Mars and whatnot. But how would it serve as a pizza delivery vehicle or a taxi? It seems a little contrasting with its demeanor, but U.K.-based LeaseFetcher has imagined it in various avatars.
The Tesla Cybertruck’s First Public Outing Has Generated Tons of Attention
It’s been around seven months since the Cybertruck was officially launched. The truck is no more a closely guarded secret and it has been seen driving around L.A., but Tesla never made it accessible to the public… until now.

The Tesla Cybertruck Could Have a Folding Rear Window for Expandable Cargo Room
By now, you’d expect Tesla to have zeroed down on the production version of the Cybertruck. However, the company is still making tweaks here and there and is even accepting suggestions from the public. A Twitter user recently suggested flipping down the rear window and folding the body panel to increase storage. Elon Musk replied saying it’s worth considering. It’s quite a good idea and will help people who carry long items in their trucks often.

A short video showing them cruising in the Cybertruck was uploaded on Instagram back then, but now we have a trailer that shows us what to expect from this episode.
