New footage shows the Cybertruck’s rear-wheel steering in action

This is an incredible close-up video of the Cybertruck’s rear-wheel steering in action.

The rear-wheel steering is undoubtedly one of the most hyped features of the truck, with leaked footage popping up all over the internet in recent weeks.

Now, an X user has posted new footage which is undoubtedly giving us our best look yet.

Wilfredo said he took this footage after the Cybertruck driver darted in front of him in San Francisco.

The close-up footage, captured by the side camera on Wilfredo’s Tesla, shows the back wheel looking and acting like a front wheel.

It had people confused online too, with some asking if it was in fact the front wheel, not the rear.

Others were just stoked to see footage of the rear-wheel steering in action.

“Thanks for sharing. My eyes always go straight to the rear tires when Cybertruck videos pop up,” they said.

“The Cybertruck will be game-changing,” another said.

It was a good day for Cybertruck fans because another video popped up by The Kilowatts showing the truck making a U-turn with the rear-wheel steering on full show.

If you’re not sure what all the hype’s about, the Cybertruck’s rear-wheel steering will give it an impressive turning circle and crazy maneuverability.

Essentially it will be able to navigate garages and tight parking spaces as if it was the size of a Mini Cooper – or at least that’s what Tesla is hoping for.

Despite all the praise around the truck’s steering, the Tesla Cybertruck’s appearance still has people seriously divided.

Some love it and are all but counting down the days until it’s finally delivered.

But others just can’t get their heads around it.

“That is the ugliest thing ever, seriously,” one said.

One person described it as “a washing machine with wheels” and another said it looked like “a metal shop project built by a drunk apprentice”.

But with more than two million orders for the truck, we don’t think Elon Musk really cares if it has a few haters.
