In a world where every car is beginning to look the same, it’s refreshing to see the Cybertruck breaks the mould. Tesla have certainly made an impact and when it’s seen on the road, it’s a pretty amazing sight. When Elon Musk himself is behind the wheel, it’s even better.
Last Saturday, a Tesla Cybertruck was spotted on the 405 freeway in Southern California, completely dominating the road due to its sheer size and unpainted stainless steel shell. It’s hardly subtle as it skates through the darkness with its bright lights and eerily silent running gear.
Its windows are tinted, but what can be seen is the bright screen of the rear-view camera which sits where the rear-view mirror would be. Thanks to Roberto Cruz, who had the opportunity to capture the truck on video, we can now see the behemothic vehicle pitted against other road cars where we can compare its great size for a good half a minute.
It was rumoured that Elon Musk was behind the wheel, which was basically proven when TMZ reported on the following photo.

With 250,000 pre-orders already, the Cybertruck is proving to be quite a charmer in the community, despite a lot of people making their critical comments known on Twitter. However, with positive reviews of the Model 3 rolling in, I’m sure there will be plenty of the converted once journalists get to drive it.
The Cybertruck will go go into production during 2021 with the single and dual-motor being released later that year, and the highest performance tri-motor being released the year later.
We’re getting used to the design here at Tesla Reporter, and can’t wait to see more of them on the road. Are you adjusting to the new design language of the Cybertruck? Let us know in the comments if you’re warming to it or not.
