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...

Since Tesla unveiled its Cybertruck and ATV in October 2019, we have only seen a few pics of the new vehicles on the roads. These is some rare new footage from the Jay Leno’s Garage show, which is starting its fifth season next week, in which he appears driving a Cybertruck.From issue #109
A few weeks ago, we shared some exclusive new pictures of the Cybertruck at Jay Leno’s Garage. The season opened last week, and the episode featuring Tesla’s Cybertruck was aired yesterday. The Cybertruck coverage is only about 6 minutes and 20 seconds (honestly, we were expecting more), but if you’re curious, you can see the whole segment on YouTube.

This is a super cool renderization of the Cybertruck comparing the final version with the one presented at the reveal back in October 2019.From issue #108
For those who can’t wait to see the Cybertruck in person, a prototype is being displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum in LA just for one week (June 20-27). This is the first stationary public display since the Cybertruck reveal back in November 2019. If you have the chance of going, I totally recommend it, it’s even more impressive in person!

A lot of people are thinking about the Cybertruck as their ultimate camping car. The @TeslaTruckClub suggested to Elon the option to roll down the rearview window, it would definitely make a difference and be also helpful to carry stuff longer than 8’.

After all, it seems like the Cybertruck size is going to be pretty similar to the one unveiled back in October. Elon recently said on Twitter that even a 3% reduction would be too much. This leads us to think it will probably not fit in your average garage. He also said that they «want to be a leader in apocalypse technology». As they say, go big or go home.

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.

Tesla is aiming to start deliveries of their Cybertruck in 2021 but they are not the only ones. The electric version of the iconic brand Hummer is scheduled for 2022 (some suggest it may arrive earlier) and a bunch of other car manufacturers are planning on joining as well (Mercedes-Benz EQA, BMW iNEXT, Volkswagen ID.4, and Nissan Ariya). Thank you, Tesla, for pushing the market, looking forward to seeing how the SUV and truck EV market evolves.

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
If you weren’t able to make it to the Cybertruk exhibit in LA last week, here are a few more pictures for those of you who can’t stop devouring information about your Tesla future truck.From issue #118
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.
