New image reveals whether Cybertruck is garage friendly

Tesla’s hyped Cybertruck has got people talking for all types of reasons.

From its hotly anticipated delivery date to the household product people are using to clean it with – it’s certainly raising a lot of questions.

But there’s one thing that’s really causing a social-media buzz as we approach the launch date: its size.

From a DeLorean to a Ford-F250 people are trying anything to get a handle on it – but a new photo has shed light on its exact dimensions.

The photo posted to X, shows a Cybertruck backing into a garage.

And it reveals some practical challenges for prospective owners.

Posted by FilamStargazer it captures the EV backing into a garage in Sunnyvale, California.

Cybertruck fits into standard townhouse garage in Sunnyvale. They were very careful about backing it in, though,” the post reads.

Commenters had a giggle about the logistics of getting a driver both in and out of the door given the snug fit.

“I bet you have to squeeze out the door,” one said.

“How do you open a door to get out?”

“LOL I just installed an outdoor EV charger in anticipation of mine, I figure that it will not fit in my garage, but perhaps it might?” said a second.

“Summon in and summon out. No driver to egress,” a third said.

During Tesla’s second-quarter earnings call, Elon Musk talked about the size of Cybertruck.

He mentioned that the EV would have a length of under 19 feet.

He also stated that it would have four doors and a 6-foot bed.

“It’s designed to fit into a 20-foot garage,” Musk said.

Further, it will most likely weigh around 3.4 tons.

That’s less than the Rivian R1T and the GMC Hummer EV.
