Detailed look at Tesla's Cybertruck interior (with pictures): new MCU UI, Roadster-like steering wheel, screen rearview mirror, seats, dash made of paper, glass roof, and 6.5 feet bed.
Only 36 hours after Tela’s Cybertruck unveiling event, Elon Musk has shared on Twitter that they’ve received 146,000 pre-orders. A day after Tesla has already reached 200,000 reservations of the Cybertruck. Not bad for an ‘ugly’ truck. 😜
If you thought Elon was joking when he said the truck would look like something out of Blade Runner, well, he was not. Right there in the middle of the music, the lights, the fire, and the excitement, my first impressions of Tesla's Cybertruck were...

Kara Swisher from Recode Decode did an awesome interview to Elon. He talks about everything from Tesla’s close to death earlier this year, to what is down the pipe for Tesla, to rockets, Mars, and others. A few Tesla related highlights:
- NoA comes to a halt at the intersection after the off-ramp. I didn’t know about it until I listed to this podcast.
- Tesla is now integrating stop signs, traffic lights, hard right turns, or hairpin bends.
- Elon Musk thinks Tesla would archive full self-driving in 2019 and no other competitor is close to it, although it also seems like he doesn’t worry much about competitors.
- The future Tesla pickup truck is going to be a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, “Blade Runner”, pickup truck. Elon is really excited about it.

For all of you crazy about Tesla’s Hot Wheels- I know I’m not the only one- they’re stepping up their game by making a 1:10 scale Cybertruck and a smaller more affordable version at 1:64 scale. Expected to ship in December 2020, the first one is already sold out, but you can always join the waitlist.

Interesting post about a guy who attended the Cybertruck unveiling and talked to a Tesla engineer about the «ball incident». Elon confirmed later on that the impact of the Sledgehammer on the door cracked the base of the glass, but this is still an interesting read.

This video has been all over the Internet during the past two days. A Model 3 owner decided to modify her Model 3 and convert it in a pickup truck. This for sure is nothing like the future Tesla pickup truck (expected to be unveiled this summer) but it requires some serious skill and it’s the kind of content that we, at Tesletter, really love. Really impressive Simone!#64
Tesla changed the release dates for the most and least expensive versions of the Cybertruck by a year
The tri-motor will be coming on 2021 instead of 2022 and the single-motor, rear-wheel-drive Cybertruck will be postponed to 2022 instead of the initial 2021 date given in the order page. Honestly, given the percentages that Elon first announced - 41% ordered the tri-motor vs only 17% ordered the single motor version - and the fact that Tesla will definitely make more money from the most expensive trim, it all makes sense.

Good video from Raj! More importantly, this video and an article from Teslarati got Elon’s attention and this is when he said: «We can probably reduce the width by an inch and maybe reduce length by 6+ inches without losing on utility or esthetics».
Vanessa was fortunate enough to attend to the unveiling of the Cybertruck and she put her thoughts together. If you have to read one article about the Cybetruck, read this one. Thanks to all the folks who attended (I know a bunch of you are subscribers :)) you made the event even more special.
