In November 2019, Tesla officially introduced the Cybertuck to the world. An all-electric pickup tuck that features a stainless steel body and highly angular design. It’s safe to say the vehicles polarising design split opinions down the middle. People either loved the bold direction Tesla was going in with the unusual design or they saw the vehicle as nothing more than an insult to conventional pick up trucks.
Now, it looks like the Cybertruck is going to be receiving a few “small improvements” that are set to change vehicles overall design and possibly functionality. According to reports from Teslarati, the company recently held its Q3 2020 earnings call, during which Musk was asked about the highly anticipated EV pickup truck. The Tesla CEO then revealed that himself and Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen, were recently at the company’s Design Studio in Hawthorne, California to discuss the possibility of the EV pickup truck undergoing “small improvements” to its design, although he did not go into too much detail regrading the specifics of those changes.
According to Musk, he is looking to launch a better version of the Cybertruck that was unveiled back in November 2019.
“Generally, at Tesla, we really aim to make the car that is delivered better than the car that is unveiled.” Musk said during the Q3 2020 earnings call. “And that’s the goal with the Cybertruck. So there’s like a lot of small improvements compared to what was unveiled. I think it’s going to be better than what we showed,” he added.
While Musk may not have provided details on how exactly the Cybertruck will be altered, we do know that Tesla recently confirmed the vehicle would be slightly smaller that originally expected, with its dimensions shrinking from just over 2 metres to its just under 2 metres, according to reports from SlashGear.
Don’t however expect to see these changes anytime soon, as production of the Cybertruck can only begin once the Giga Texas production facility is built, which is scheduled to be complete in 2021.
