    TESLA CYBERTRUCK FIRST RIDE: INSIDE ELON MUSK’S ELECTRIC PICKUP TRUCK

    TESLA CYBERTRUCK FIRST RIDE: INSIDE ELON MUSK’S ELECTRIC PICKUP TRUCK

    About an hour or so after Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed an absurd, futuristic, brutalist electric pickup called Cybertruck to the world, I pulled myself up into its passenger seat. A Tesla employee then took me and three others for a short joy ride down a temporarily closed-off road that lines one side of SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

    We were riding in the midlevel, dual-motor version of the truck, which is supposed to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds and will eventually start at $49,900. But while the prototype truck was quick, the sensation of speed was dulled by its size and (undisclosed) weight. It didn’t really provide that thrilling jolt forward that Teslas are known for.

    Instead, the most stunning thing about my ride in the Cybertruck was how big and roomy it was. Say what you will about the outside of the Cybertruck, but I (and the rear-seat passengers) had more space to spread out than previously seemed possible in a vehicle of this size, almost as if Tesla had pulled off some sort of magic trick.

    Oops, I screwed up the picture.



    There are lots of large pictures at the link. My first impression is this looks like a very low resolution rendering of a distant vehicle from an early version of Grand Theft Auto.
