Tesla unveils new-look Cybertruck – four years after embarrassing gaffe at launch presentation | Science and Tech News

Tesla has shared a new look at its upcoming Cybertruck vehicle – nearly four years after it was announced.

Musk added that the Cybertruck will be the only vehicle of its kind to have four doors, a 1.8m (6ft) bed, and a footprint small enough to fit inside a 6m (20ft) garage.

“One of the elements of good design is that it should feel bigger on the inside than on the outside,” he added.

Analysts were quick to question its delivery ambitions, however, as rivals such as Ford have unveiled far more traditional-looking electric pickups that are less complicated to manufacture.

Seth Goldstein of Morningstar Research said that cybertrucks may not have “meaningful volumes” until 2025.

Musk: ‘We’re in tough times’

The Cybertruck has endured a long road to market – suffering several delays since its embarrassing debut when Its supposedly unbreakable windows were broken twice. To prove how strong they were.

Musk claimed that despite the gaffe, demand was strong. With 150,000 orders within days.

At the time, the starting price was $39,990 (£31,000) – but Musk hinted that this could change. Tesla has cut prices on some existing cars to drive growth amid an uncertain economic environment.

The billionaire admitted he didn’t know “what was going on” with the economy during the earnings call.

The world’s richest man said that one day the world economy seems to be collapsing, the next day it’s fine.

“I don’t know what’s going on. We’re in, I’d call it, turbulent times.”
