The first Tesla Cybertruck to hit the road might have been spotted, even though the vehicle’s production is set for 2021.
Instagram user @chicago_roy saw the heavily-mocked pickup truck zipping about on public roads near Tesla’s design center and SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
While the truck will only go into production in 2021, CEO Elon Musk reveals on Twitter that about 250,000 preorders have already been made.
The Cybertruck is Tesla’s first pickup truck, but the buildup of anticipation around it screeched to a halt when CEO Elon Musk unveiled the vehicle at a recent Tesla event.
The truck was touted for its “ultimate durability” with “bulletproof” Tesla Armor Glass, but its windows were embarrassingly smashed with a metal ball at Musk’s live demo.
Musk later justified that the experiment should have been conducted differently, as impact from an earlier demo seemingly resulted in the windows becoming fragile.
