Is Tesla’s Cybertruck too enormous for your garage? Unfortunately, you’ll have to shop for something else. Elon Musk has revealed that the electric pickup will stay “pretty much” the size of the prototype despite previous claims the production model would get smaller. There isn’t much room to shrink after a design review, according to the CEO — “even 3% smaller is too small,” he said.
Musk added that Tesla would “probably” make a smaller “world truck” in the future.
It’s not certain just what prevents the truck from shrinking, although its hard-to-shape cold-rolled steel clearly dictates its angular design. It’s safe to say you’ll have to think carefully about buying a Cybertruck, at any rate — this is for people who either have expansive garages or don’t mind leaving their pride and joy outdoors.
Reviewed design with Franz last night. Even 3% smaller is too small. Will be pretty much this size. We’ll probably do a smaller, tight world truck at some point.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 23, 2020
