This is the most concrete evidence regarding the EV truck's production yet.
Good news, Tesla Cybertruck fans. We now have the most concrete evidence ever that the Cybertruck will eventually make it into production. It has officially appeared in an episode of The Simpsons, which is known for accurately predicting the future.
We've long given up on believing Elon Musk. His latest claim was that the Cybertruck could be used as a boat, and this got Tesla fans so excited that the government had to officially ask said customers not to use their electric trucks as a floatation device. So yes, The Simpsons is the most reliable source we have at the moment.
The Cybertruck made its animated debut in the annual Treehouse of Horror special. This might be a subtle dig at Tesla, as the Cybertruck is ugly enough to scare small kids.
In the episode, the Cybertruck is owned by Comic Book Guy. We don't want to say more than that because it's still way too early to include spoilers.
This is not the first time a Tesla has made an appearance. The upcoming Roadster made its debut on the show in 2020. Elon Musk also appeared in an episode in 2014, and the self-deprecating humor was sensational. We're not always fans of the man, but we always appreciate a decent sense of humor. Lisa Simpson also delivers what might be one of the best lines in a comedy show ever: "[Elon Musk] changed the way Hollywood drives."
You can watch Musk's appearance on the show in the video below.
If you're not a Simpsons fan and wondering what all this is about, the show has a weird habit of predicting the future.
Some more famous examples include the prediction that Donald Trump would become president. That episode dates back to 2000. It also predicted the ending of Game of Thrones, the Nobel Prize in economics winner six years before it happened, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the arrival of murder hornets. Naturally, there are online arguments about how often the show was right, but the general consensus is that it was on the money between 16 and 21 times.
The arrival of the Cybertruck might be number 22. From Tesla's side, the latest update we have is that the EV truck will arrive in mid-2023. Combined with the supernatural powers of The Simpsons, this might be it, folks.
