A Tesla Cybertruck has just been filmed launching off the line like a Formula 1 car.
The footage, which was just taken in California, shows the Cybertruck waiting for the lights to change before shooting off and leaving all the other cars, including an ICE truck, in its dust.
Tesla originally said the truck would have a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds but that was a while ago, and a lot’s changed since then.
Since it was first unveiled in 2019, the truck’s evolved massively, including its slightly smaller and lighter body.
Would-be owners are desperately waiting for Tesla to reveal the truck’s updated specs, but so far there’s no word on when that might happen.
Deliveries are expected to start in Q4, 2023, but Tesla nor its CEO Elon Musk have confirmed this.
For now, people are relying on leaked images and footage to give them a glimpse into what is to come.
And this recent launch footage taken by Tesla Owners Silicon Valley is only adding to the hype.
“More utility of a truck with the performance of a sports car and the look of a BBQ/ fridge/ washer/ dryer/ SpaceX rocket,” one X user said.
But as impressive as its acceleration might be, the Cybertruck’s appearance is failing to impress everyone.
“It has all the style and grace of Lego,” one said.
“The designer thought inside the box when making this monstrosity,” another said.
Others saw past the impressive acceleration and took issue with the truck’s design features.
“I wonder though, how visible are the turn signals and brake lights during the day? They seem kind of tiny,” he said.
Another thought the same and was clearly unimpressed.
“Look at its stupid little undersized blinker,” they said.
