This is how Elon Musk arrived driving a Tesla Cybertruck to the factory where the vehicle will be mass-produced.
The images and videos show the same prototype that the company showed in 2019 touring central Texas.
The Tesla Cybertruck has come home, at least to some extent. As seen in images and videos released in recent hours by Giga Texas, the all-electric truck recently visited the next electric vehicle factory. Cybertruck’s visit to Giga, Texas, was confirmed by Elon Musk, who noted that he drove the vehicle around the massive construction complex.
Preliminary photos of Cyberturk’s visit to Giga Factory Texas were shared by the electric vehicle community on the R / Tesla Motors Subreddit.
As seen in the pictures, the all-electric pickup drew a lot of attention from Giga Texas workers. The car looked at its home in Giga, Texas, building sites, with mud-flat tires and stainless steel bodywork.
According to Elon Musk, he actually drove around the Giga Texas complex behind the wheel of the Tesla Cybertruck. Other photos from the visit also showed Musk addressing a crowd of Giga Texas workers, many of whom seemed drawn to the huge, all-electric pickup. This was true not only for the exterior of the Cybertruck but also for its interior, which features a yoke for its steering system and a 17 ″ display, much like the Model S and Model X update.
Interestingly, the Tesla Cybertruck that Elon Musk drove at Giga, Texas, appears to be the same prototype the company introduced in 2019. According to Musk’s first tease on Twitter, this was partly due to the presence of a door handle, a part that would not be present on the production vehicle.
The Tesla Cybertruck is arguably one of the most anticipated vehicles in Tesla’s history, and Elon Musk noted that the unusually shaped truck has been in demand that is well above the company’s expectations. The vehicle is expected to begin pilot production sometime this year, although Musk, for his part, has proven to be quite conservative about the initial build lead time for the Cybertruck.
When asked if the Cybertruck is scheduled for initial deliveries later this year, Musk simply pointed out that limited production of the Model Y would begin at Giga Texas sometime in 2021 and that mass production will catch up next. This, according to Musk, was a time period that should also be true for Gigafactory Berlin. As for the Cybertruck, its initial production phase would likely hinge on how quickly IDRA could ship its 8,000-ton Giga Press. This house-sized machine would create the rear end of the electric truck to Gigafactory, Texas.
