Top picture was just community made though, it was never from Tesla, and likely never even on their drawing boards.
The Cybertruck literally looks like it's from some futuristic movie or game. I still don't understand how it's going to pass crash safety tests either, especially if it's as "strong" and "rigid" as they claim.
I don't really understand their market here either though as this doesn't seem like something a typical pickup buyer would buy. And if we look at America... there seems to be a lot of people that are against Telsa entirely. Current day pickups from Ford, Dodge, GM, etc all have pretty lavish interior options too, this looked really sparse in the video I saw of them driving it.
I have mixed feelings. I think one reason for the design is cost. This has a pretty aggressive MSRP at 39,999 use for the base model. Start giving it complex body panels and such and cost would skyrocket drastically.
The biggest problem I think is towing range. TFLTrucks did a towing test with a model x and it absolutely devoured the battery. I think it was somewhere around 1/3 normal range of memory serves me correctly.
