If You Pre-Ordered the Tesla Cybertruck in Europe, You Might Want to Cancel It

It doesn’t look like you’ll get the Cybertruck that you ordered

The Cybertruck was widely criticized for its weird shape, but that was mainly because of how it looked. Soon after the unveiling, a lot of other practical problems came to light, such as parking woes, truckbed usability to haul longer objects, and so on. One such glaring problem that raised a lot of eyebrows was the safety aspect. The Cybertruck sure has strong components, but how can it be tested for crash ratings and how will it fare in case of a rollover? With a lot of questions unanswered, an expert in Europe has deemed the Cybertruck to be far from road-legal. This is a huge blow to the company. Will Tesla heavily modify the Cybertruck to attain road legality?

The Cybunker Is the Perfect Add-On For Your New Tesla Cybertruck

The Cybunker Is the Perfect Add-On For Your New Tesla Cybertruck

It is cool, funky, and a must-have given the weird dimensions of the Cybertruck

When you talk about the accessories for the Tesla Cybertruck, you think about overlanding and off-road equipment. But, how about a garage for it?

A research, development, and design company called Lars Buro has come up with a garage for the oddly-shaped truck called the Cybunker. Believe it or not, this is the need of the hour because the Cybertruck DOES NOT fit in a standard two-car garage. Also, the Cybunker is not a random concept that will never see the light of the day; Lars Buro says it is production-ready.

Hope for the Cybertruck Restored as Image of Young Elon Musk Replacing a Window Surfaces on Twitter

Hope for the Cybertruck Restored as Image of Young Elon Musk Replacing a Window Surfaces on Twitter

Musk knowing how to fix glasses is reassuring. So, where can I lay my $100 for the Cybertruck?

They say life comes as a full circle; and it did for Elon Musk and his glass shattering saga. Elon Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, tweeted a picture from her son’s younger days where he’s seen replacing a window in his old BMW.

This tweet caught a lot of attention and people couldn’t stop asking him questions about it. Now that we know Elon has experience in fixing broken glasses, I guess we can expect him to fix the Cybertruck’s “supposedly armored glass” with ease. Funny how things turn out, right?

Elon Musk Says No to an Electric Motorcycle, but That Doesn't Mean a Cyberbike Is Out of the Question

Elon Musk Says No to an Electric Motorcycle, but That Doesn’t Mean a Cyberbike Is Out of the Question

I wonder if this Cyberbike will look as weird as the Cybertruck?!

If you watched the Tesla Cybertruck’s launch then you remember that the ATV brought onto the stage at the end of the unveil received a rousing round of applause. The ATV was much talked about even later on and people just couldn’t get over that beautiful beast. Luckily, Musk finally confirmed that it will be available as an option with the Cybertruck. But now Tesla’s main man says that we might get a Tesla-made two-wheeler as well! And while he’s not considering a motorbike, an electric dirt bike is a possibility.

Tesla Just Broke Its Promise on Cybertruck Production and We're Not Surprised One Bit

Tesla Just Broke Its Promise on Cybertruck Production and We’re Not Surprised One Bit

As it turns out, that $39,000 Cybertruck will arrive last instead of first

When Tesla launced the Cybertruck, we were promsied that the two cheaper versions – the single motor, $39,900 model and the dual-motor $49,900 model – would go into prodution in late 2021 while the more expensive tri-motor model with the Tesla Plaid drivetrain would arrive to the production line in late 2022. Now, Tesla has doubled back on its word and will delay the cheapest model until late 2021 so that the more expensive tri-motor Plaid model will enter production earlier.

A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger

A New Wide-Body Tesla Cybertruck Rendering Proves That Elon Musks Creation Could Be Even Stranger

Would you take this monster to the race track?

The Tesla Cybertruck is arguably the most shocking car design in recent decades. Not only wedge-shaped bodies have gone out of fashion in the early 1990s, but no other carmaker thought about this shape as a design that could bring notable benefits in the aerodynamic and rigidity departments... of a pickup truck.

Tesla did, and while many car enthusiasts hate the Cybertruck’s looks, it could actually get weirder than that. And this rendering from Jonsibal proves just that.

Was Tesla's Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk's Own World?

Was Tesla’s Cybertruck Designed For The Real World Or Musk’s Own World?

With all the talk going on about the Tesla pickup truck, we wonder if it can actually work out there in the wild

The launch event of the Tesla Cybertruck began with a quick slideshow where images of well-known trucks from the past five decades rolled on the screen as Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about a need for change and evolution. The Cybertruck, as a result, was always going to be daring in more ways than one but has Tesla gone too far? Is this really what truck buyers have in mind when thinking about switching from a gas-guzzling truck to an electric one? Do they even want to switch to an electric truck at all?

Lego's Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic

Lego’s Cybertruck Rival Really Is Shatterproof - Troll Level Epic

Everybody has an electric pickup truck these days, but Lego’s proposal is by far the best

Whether we like it or not, Tesla’s Cybertruck is bound to populate our news feeds for longer than we expected. Helped by the now infamous “armour” windows blunder caused by your humble metal ball, the wave of mockery is getting thicker and thicker. Classier, too.

Such an example of a neat trollage came earlier this week from Tesla’s fellow carmaker BMW, as Munich’s social media department saw the window shattering a good opportunity to pile up more exposure for BMW’s bulletproof X5 Protection VR6. And then came Lego.

Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch

Ford Retreats, Suddenly Has No Interest in the F-150-Cybertruck Tug-of-War Rematch

And here I was, rooting for the Blue Oval to whoop the Cybertruck’s boxy ass!

Remember the tug-of-war rematch challenge that Ford laid out to Tesla on Twitter? Yeah, well, that’s gone for now. Apparently, the tweet from the Ford X’s Vice President Sundeep Madra was just a tongue-in-cheek statement and not a challenge per se.

Just when it looked like we’ll have an “apples to apples” face-off, Ford has chickened out. Oh boy! Mr. Madra, what have you done?

We’re back with more

Tesla Cybertruck

related news as BMW decided to capture some attention on Twitter and channel it on one of its most spectacular products by throwing some shade at the Cybertruck.

As you know, BMW will sell you, on special request, the so-called X5 Protection VR6, a heavily armoured vehicle packing 530 horsepower and the ability to withstand gunfire coming from an AK-47. This sort of badassery allowed BMW to troll Tesla and Musk for the “armor” widows gaffe that took place during the pickup truck’s live reveal.

Engineering Explained Exposes Why the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War Was a Scam

Engineering Explained Exposes Why the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War Was a Scam

Although it got all the hype, Tesla was bound to be exposed sooner or later

When Tesla announced the 300,000-pound towing capacity for the Cybertruck, Ford was quick to release a video of its F-150 electric prototype that pulled 1.25 million pounds. Instead of immediately replying to this, Tesla took its own sweet time to throw a punch at Ford. In turn, Tesla tied the Cybertruck’s ass to a Ford-150’s with a rope and engaged in a good old fashioned tug-o-war challenge.

You must’ve seen the video; the Cybertruck pulls the F-150 with utmost ease, even on an inclined surface. However, this was as gimmicky as it could get. Famous YouTube channel Engineering Explained has put out a video explaining why this battle made no sense and it is much simpler than the “two-wheel-drive/all-wheel-drive argument.”

The Arrival of the Cybertruck Signals Tesla's Shift to Technology Over New Models

The Arrival of the Cybertruck Signals Tesla’s Shift to Technology Over New Models

Now it’s probably time to focus more on that self-driving tech

Musk recently announced that the Cybertruck will be its last new model for the time being and it plans to focus more on future technologies. This makes sense because Tesla already has a strong lineup without a single dead product in it. It also has a lot of technologies that are still vaguely in their beta phase and several models that it actually has to bring to market (Tesla Roadster, Tesla Semi, Model Y, and now, the Cybertruck.) So, it looks like Tesla will now be focused on its exiting productions and technology over the next few years. If that’s the case, will the full self-driving tech finally be developed and deployed in all its vehicles by the end of 2020?
