The hotly-anticipated Cybertruck is nearly here, yet there’s still a lot of things we’re in the dark about.
We still don’t know how much the stainless steel-clad pickup will cost, nor do we know how far it’ll go on a single charge.
We don’t even know how much stuff you’ll be able to haul around in it – and Tesla’s long-awaited delivery event is happening in just two weeks.
A recent video on social media showing the entirety of the truck’s interior revealed the cabin is more cramped that you’d expect from a full-sized pickup.
Now, it appears the same could go for the truck’s bed.

It’s in bad taste to leak stuff like this right before a big event.

An image circulating online shows that not even a single mountain bike can fully fit inside the bed.
Then, another image – this time uploaded to the Cybertruck subreddit – shows most of a Christmas tree protruding from the back of the truck.
If ever there was evidence that the Cybertruck isn’t going to compete with other pickup trucks when it comes to utility, this is it.
So how big is the bed of the Cybertruck and how does it compare to its competition?
During Tesla’s Q2 earning report earlier this year, measurements were revealed stating the 19-foot truck will feature a truck bed that’s longer than six feet.
That explains why the front wheel of the Specialized mountain bike in the picture at the top of this story was sticking out of the back.
As for competition, the Rivian R1T and Ford F-150 Lightning have truck beds that are only 4.5 and 5.5 feet long respectively.
However, you must bear in mind that the Cybertruck’s bed has oddly-angled sides which complicates things.
Previous pictures doing the rounds suggest the truck’s bed is significantly narrower on the bottom that it is at the top, which could limit how much you can fit in the bed.
At the end of the day, we’ll have to wait and see how much room there is, and whether the bed is able to take a Christmas tree or other oddly-shaped cargo.
What we do know is, though, customers are going to have to wait a whole lot longer than Christmas Day to get their hands on a Cybertruck.
