Take a look at the video below. It shows a Tesla Cybertruck driving inside Tesla’s Texas Gigafactory – aka. the Cyber Rodeo. What do you think – it looks like four-wheel steering to us.
Thanks to the cybertruckownersclub.com forum for the image and the video clip.
Tesla and Elon Musk announced that the Cybertruck is going into production next year (in 2023), and it will be built at the Texas Cyber Rodeo facility. The prototype you see in this video clip appears to have the latest design with the side mirrors, windshield wiper(s), front lights, front bumper, and its wheels and tires. The overall wedge shape is still there.
We will continue to follow the Cybertruck story. Tesla originally promised it to come on sale at the end of 2021. Now, we don’t have any detailed pricing or model specification. Tesla promises that it’s coming in 2023, so we will continue to wait and see how the Cybertruck will turn out.
I recently drove the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup truck with four-wheel-steering. I came away very impressed with this system. It makes the large Hummer EV truck super maneuverable and fun to drive on and off the pavement. There was a time in the Hummer on a tight Arizona off-road trail where I missed a turn. I had to turn around and backtrack. The four-wheel steering at its 10-degrees of rear steering made it a breeze. We will see if the Cybertruck will have a similar capability.
