Tesla Cybertruck may never see production
It has been weeks now since the Tesla Cybertruck has been unveiled. The reactions from various websites has been mostly strong with mixed opinions. Musk has tweeted out that the Cybertruck has indeed been received well since its debut with over 250,000 pre-orders. Expect to wait a couple of years for the supposed arrival.
However, those who pre-ordered the Tesla’s new truck may not get it all. Indeed, the truck as it stands right now could run into some issues. First, there are no side view mirrors, which are currently federally mandated (cameras aren’t enough). There is also no third brake-light, just a large strip of LED lighting that wraps around the bed. Crash tests might become an issue because of the irregular shaped body, despite the material being stronger than anything that is on the road (there is also no front bumper). There are also no windshield wipers or apparent turn signals.
A lot of people think this is a very cool truck. However, they may be disappointed to find out the lack of federally mandated equipment on it. Could this potentially explain we have to wait two years (three for the tri-motor configuration) just to get the Cybertruck in a driveway? Perhaps, but there could also be last minute changes to satisfy these customers. Either way, we will again still have to wait a while for any major news regarding Tesla’s new vehicle.
