The time of the launch of Tesla’s Cybertruck is getting near and people are getting excited over the event.
There was a leaked showroom video that shows the hard-edged stainless steel vehicle doing wonders on dirt roads, riding through fields, and doing some impressive donuts.
The news comes days after Lars Moravy, Vice President of Vehicle Engineering at Tesla, confirmed that the Elon Musk-led automaker is producing “a number of Cybertruck prototypes” during the company’s Q3 2021 earnings release last week.
“As you may have seen recently in social media, we’ve built a number of alphas and are currently testing those to further mature the design,” he added.
He also talked about a separate leaked video, that exhibits an early Cybertruck prototype with an impressively tight turning radius. This was made possible because of a new feature enabling its rear wheels to point in the opposite direction, which Moravy called “rear steering” during the call.
The truck also boasts off rearview mirrors, although the early prototypes were showing up in public without them.
The unusual truck’s launch was recently pushed from the end of this year to “late” 2022. Production will occur at Tesla’s new Gigafactory near Austin, Texas.
Refundable preorders are still open on its website. They are an affordable 100 dollars. However, the whole amount of the truck is still not revealed. The company recently removed the truck’s specs and price from its site.
One thing is sure that this will definitely not be the cheapest car in the company’s lineup.
