Musk Says Updated Tesla Cybertruck Coming Soon

Electric Vehicles / Comments

Elon Musk says the changes will be revealed "in a month or so."

Before the new BMW 4 Series was ridiculed for its ginormous grille, the Tesla Cybertruck was one of the most divisive vehicles in recent years. Its blocky, Blade Runner-inspired design wouldn't look out of place in a 1990s video game and was mocked in a countless number of internet memes. The reveal event didn't go according to plan either after the truck's "shatterproof" glass was smashed during a live demonstration.

Despite its polarizing design, the Cybertruck is already proving to be a sales hit for Tesla, and yet we haven't seen the final production model. Since the Cybertruck shown almost one year ago was a prototype, many have been wondering if the final production model will feature any design changes.

We'll find out soon, because Elon Musk has confirmed an updated version of the Cybertruck will be shown "in a month or so." Responding to a user on Twitter asking if the Cybertruck will be "an ass-kicker," Musk replied saying the electric truck is "basically a tank from the future that's road-legal, so yeah."

Another fan asked when Tesla will show a photo of the updated Cybertruck. "Sure, maybe in a month or so," Musk replied.

Unfortunately, Musk didn't elaborate on the changes planned for the Cybertruck, but we're not expecting a dramatic redesign. During a recent conference call, Musk said the Cybertruck will be updated with "small improvements compared to what was unveiled." Potentially, the production version could be smaller than the prototype.

Originally, Elon Musk planned to reduce the production model's size by around three percent as the prototype is too large to fit in an average US garage. Since then, Musk has claimed these plans have changed and that the size of the production model will likely be unaltered, meaning it will be around 231.7 inches long, 79.8 inches wide, and 75 inches tall. If that's too large, Elon Musk has hinted the Cybertruck will be joined by a smaller "world truck" in the future. Customer deliveries for the Cybertruck are expected to start by the end of 2021.
