Tesla shows off production-ready Cybertruck and people are confused

Tesla has just unveiled the ‘final’ version of the Cybertruck for the umpteenth time.

But this time is different, mainly because the truck you see here is road-ready, and it just rolled off the assembly line.

Yep, deliveries have finally started.

We know that Tesla has a cult-like following, some of the buyers sometimes act like they’re ‘adepts’, or ‘believers’.

This is even more true when it comes to the Cybertruck, but there are still a couple of issues.

First, the automaker has released so many statements and the CEO Elon Musk has spoken about it so many times that everyone’s lost track.

The look has changed a bit since the original unveil in 2019, and a few things were added, including the crab-walk feature that allows you to steer the car obliquely.

However, people are a bit confused and they’re wondering, for example, what exactly happened to the supposedly bulletproof windows.

During the launch event four years ago, some of you may remember, Tesla head of design Von Holzhausen attempted to break the window by throwing a lead ball at it.

The window shattered, and the problem was it wasn’t supposed to.

It was supposed to remain intact.

There are also some qualms regarding the styling.

Musk said other trucks like the F-150 Lightning are “boring”, and said the Cybertruck “should feel bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside”.

He further added the Cybertruck will be the only vehicle of its type with four doors, a 1.8m (6ft) bed, and a small enough footprint to fit inside a 6m (20ft) garage.

Some of the comments on the internet are brilliant, as you can imagine.

People are calling it a station wagon.

The good news is now that deliveries have begun, customers will soon be able to get their Cybertruck and see for themselves.

Tesla proudly showed off the assembly line at Giga Texas, which means that mass production is underway.

It’ll still take time, though, since Tesla has received nearly two million (!) orders for the Cybertruck.

Back when it was first announced, Musk said it would cost $39,900.

A new price point hasn’t been revealed yet, but you can expect a higher price than that.

Then again, not that long ago, Tesla actually lowered prices for some of its vehicles amid “turbulent times”.

“One day it seems like the world economy is falling apart, next day it’s fine,” said Musk.
