I wouldn’t be shocked if Tesla introduced a Cybertruck 2.0 earlier than even delivering the Cybertruck 1 (in any case that’s form of what they did with the Roadster)… nonetheless, this redesign comes from the thoughts of automotive designer Dejan Hristov, who’s most likely ready for his Cybertruck to ship too.
The Cybertruck 2.0 idea focuses on getting proper the few issues that the primary truck obtained arguably flawed. The primary design was approach too polarizing, and in keeping with Musk himself, extremely troublesome to construct at mass scale. Slightly than specializing in a truck that’s tommy-gun bulletproof, the Cybertruck 2.0 adopts a much less aggressively divisive design, choosing the usage of mild curves as an alternative of sharp angles. Musk talked about that the Cybertruck hoped to shatter the design monotony of the pickup class, and the Cybertruck 2.0 does that too with a reasonably eye-catching design that has the potential for being iconic… however these gentle curves undoubtedly give the automobile a extra ‘completed’ look quite than trying like one thing you discover on the backside of a field of cornflakes.
Designer: Dejan Hristov
The Cybertruck redesign has a remarkably improved silhouette whereas nonetheless retaining the cyber-ish design path set by the unique. For starters, it nonetheless has edge-lines that give the truck definition, together with LED-strip headlights and taillights. The steel used on the redesign is clearly not the identical because the one discovered within the authentic Cybertruck, given its capability to be shaped into 3D curves, and even be embossed (discover the Tesla emblem on the entrance and the again?)
One may assume that both Tesla’s developed a option to bend their bulletproof space-grade steel sheets, or Musk simply determined to cave and make the automobile out of a extra manageable steel however present a stable chassis that offers the automobile its brute power. Aesthetically, this simply looks as if a greater path to go in provided that your imaginative and prescient isn’t actually clashing with present applied sciences.
The truck is accompanies by a redesigned Cyberquad that, like again in 2019, matches proper within the truck’s mattress. The quad’s design borrows from sports activities bikes with its tank-shaped kind, and matches its companion truck with an identical paint job.
In true pickup style, the again of the truck has its storage mattress that’s very best for tenting, tailgating, or storing a Cyberquad. It comes with its personal shutter, identical to the unique, however look slightly forward and also you’ll discover that the Cybertruck’s windscreen now extends all the best way to the again, supplying you with a beautiful vertically panoramic view from contained in the automobile. You gained’t wish to camp within the again with that view!
A significant departure from the unique Cybertruck is the presence of shade choices. Hristov visualized the brand new Cybertruck with colours to match the remainder of Tesla’s lineup, carrying ahead the identical logic to the Cyberquad too. As fascinating as the unique Cybertruck was, its lack of shade choices was most likely considered one of its most noticeable flaws. Musk believed in showcasing the truck’s cold-rolled stainless-steel in its true rawness, leaving lots to be desired within the CMF division. This redesign corrects that mistake with shade choices that enable the truck to face out by means of a surprising shade palette, not by means of that flat-planed design seen on the first gen Cybertruck.
In Hristov’s ultimate reimagination of the Cybertruck, he offers it one final function to blow everybody’s minds away – a frunk! A element seen on each Tesla automobile earlier than it, the frunk can now be accessed on the Cybertruck 2.0 idea by opening it such as you would a drawer. The hood doesn’t pop upwards like standard automobiles; as an alternative, the grille unit on the entrance slides ahead, supplying you with ample area for storing baggage, backpacks, and brewskis. The truck additionally comes with a retractable spoiler on the again, and a panel on the entrance that lifts as much as reveal the windshield wipers. The redesign additionally will get sleeker rear-view cameras that share footage to the dashboard, eschewing the archaic rear-view mirror.
As attractive because the Cybertruck 2.0 is, it’s most likely simply wishful pondering for now given how Musk has always backtracked on supply dates for the truck introduced in 2019. The Cybertruck is formally (for now) going to start out supply on the finish of November, though Tesla hasn’t been clear on what number of items can be delivered, and even what its ultimate worth goes to be (amid mass concern of an enormous worth surge). For now, the truck is definitely making its option to Tesla showrooms throughout USA, so perhaps that’s one good signal?
