As the delivery date for the Cybertruck draws nearer, expectations are at an all-time high.
Elon Musk has been bragging about the Cybertruck’s abilities as he says that these weird-looking trucks will allegedly be able to tow 15,000 pounds, plough snow and withstand everything from light scratches to bullets.
Its off-road capabilities are said to be impressive too.
A video of a test model has leaked where the truck takes on an obstacle known as ‘the stairs’, and we’re not too sure how to feel about what we’ve seen.
California is home to the Hollister Hills, a State Vehicle Recreation Area, which is basically 4×4 heaven.
The area is full of hills and natural obstacles, where off-road vehicles are free to play.
But this is the first time we’ve seen the vehicle tackling a sharp incline.
The Hollister Hills SVRA is about an hour away from the Tesla headquarters in Palo Alto.
Three of its Cybertrucks drove out to the area to take on a particularly challenging hill.
This obstacle is an undulating surface and is known as ‘the stairs’.
A Jeep owner spotted the trucks and filmed them, and it has left the internet feeling less than impressed.
The trucks take their time on the hill, slowly climbing to the top and heading around the bend to tackle it again.
Watching the Cybertruck seemingly struggle is nail-biting stuff.
You can’t help but hold your breath while wondering if it’s going to make it to the top.
The Jeep driver couldn’t resist flexing on the Teslas, racing up the same hill with ease and leaving the trucks in the dust, literally.
“Had to show them how it’s done,” the Jeep driver said.
It’s worth noting that we don’t know what the Cybertrucks were testing.
There could be a reason they took on the hills so slowly, especially seeing as it’s often safer to tackle a steep obstacle at pace.
But, of course, X users were not worried about considering all possibilities before firing off some tongue-in-cheek opinions.
“Who slowed the video x5?” one commenter asked.
“Whales have a smaller turning circle,” another said.
