What should we expect in the final Cybertruck design? With a 2 year gap from debut to launch, Tesla might be planning for some changes. Alex from E For Electric thinks "things like the lack of side mirrors, the thickness of the stainless steel, bulletproof glass, four-motor configurations, and the unconventional steering wheel that the concept Cybertruck has as possible things that might change before production."

Thoughts?

I wouldn't be surprised if Tesla pulls a quick 180 and gets rid of the stainless steel look.

But I agree at the very least that the steering wheel is getting scrapped, that thing is ridiculous.

A lot can change from now till launch. My hope is Tesla makes the overall design look a bit more normal.

Yes. I like a lot of the tech and functionality, but there are some things that have been overlooked, and the aesthetics are terrible.

What would you guys want to change with the Cybertruck's look?
A more finished looking cabin would be nice. I think the Cybertruck interior as we seen it looks too basic.

Also I doubt that steering wheel will happen.

So, I take it you aren't a fan. Weird to spend time on a Cybertruck fan site, isn't it?
Agreed.

Clearly Tesla won't go that far given the overwhelmingly positive response they received. So to say change 'everything' is quite unrealistic and deeply questions someone being on a community like this. It makes absolutely no sense. We know changes will come but at this point we don't know what. Lets keep it to what Tesla might ACTUALLY do.

Why? Musk said it would change quite a bit before it was released, and although I don't like the aesthetics, I'm interested in the technology.

Are you saying that if I'm not a 100% fanboi, I shouldn't be here?

Not at all.
"Are you kidding?" Sounds like you meant "You'd have to be dumb to like it like it's"
"Everything?" Seemed to mean you don't like anything about it.

Might not have been your intention but that's how it came across. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Tesla “reduced the size by ~3%”, made the “center line more level”, and “lowered the window sill height.” as some of the biggest changes to the final Cybertruck design.

With those changes, here's how it could look:

Did Tesla say why they're making this change?
That quote I posted said why, although not directly.

Its for the simple reason that the tesla pickup truck design wasn't that well proportioned from the start (compared to most production-spec passenger vehicles). Changes were also bound to happen, being a prototype. Also its a completely new tesla truck. The first of its kind. If we were talking about Ford I wouldn't expect changes like this coming from a production-looking prototype.

Good news, the final Cybertruck will maintain the same proportions as the prototype.

"In April this year, Musk took to Twitter to say that the production-ready Cybertruck would be smaller. A 3% reduction on the outside and a 1.5% reduction on the interior would make the final version fit inside a regular garage, while still being “roomy” enough to beat rival, non-electric trucks in terms of available space.

The new teaser for Jay Leno’s Garage released at the weekend has Musk confirming the reduction, although he estimates it at about 5%.

With that in mind, Musk has had another change of heart: the Cybertruck won’t be smaller, after all. “Reviewed design with Franz [von Holzhausen, Tesla’s Chief Designer] last night,” he says on Twitter. “Even 3% smaller is too small. Will be pretty much this size. We’ll probably do a smaller, tight world truck at some point.”

So the good news is that, some time down the line, Tesla will offer a regular-sized e-truck for those customers who can’t afford a specially-made garage or who won’t park it in the street / driveway. Another piece of good news, though unrelated to size, is that the Cybertruck will be tough enough to chase storms in – from within the storm."
