Cybertruck Design Update Could Come as Early as Next Month

According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, an updated Cybertruck will be unveiled in the next “month or so.” The updates are specific to the Cybertruck’s design and will soon be revealed to the public. 

Musk did a review of the Cybertruck’s design with Tesla’s design chief,  Franz von Holzhausen last month. The review included the implementation of several improvements to the electric pickup.

This past weekend, Musk took to Twitter to announce that new images of the updated Tesla Cybertruck will be released in about a month. When asked why, Musk responded:

During the company’s Battery Day Event this past September, Musk revealed that the number of pre-orders for its highly anticipated all-electric Cybertruck pickup are “gigantic.” With the amount of reservation holders currently waiting to get their hands on the all-electric pickup truck, we can only imagine the anticipation to see the its updated design. 

Although the design changes that will be implemented are unknown, Musk has talked about other updates such as adaptive air suspension as well as making the electric pickup smaller. However, the change in size was vetoed following the design review in May. Musk has also spoke of making the “center line more level,” and “lowering the window sill height” which we may still see. 

To date, Tesla has confirmed plans to launch the two higher-end versions of the Cybertruck in late 2021 with a starting price of $49,000. However, we should expect to see a more budget friendly version of the electric pickup at some point in the future.
