The Tesla Cybertruck is not only one of the most anticipated electric vehicles in the world, but also one of the most ambitious projects for the American electric car maker. Several electric pickup truck prototypes have been spotted in the wild since its debut in November 2019, but EV production has yet to begin. However, the EV is scheduled to enter production later this year, and more details about the Cybertruck have already surfaced.
The latest information on the Tesla Cybertruck has revealed the EV’s dimensions and interior details. Tesla shareholder Matthew Donegan-Ryan is one of 50 lucky retail shareholders of the company invited to the 2023 Tesla Investor Conference in Austin, Texas day. He learned a lot about the Cybertruck and shared the information on Twitter. He claims that the production-spec Tesla Cybertruck is about 5% smaller than the original prototype.

Matthew also said that the Cybertruck is about the same size as a Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew. Dimensionally, the Cybertruck’s pre-production Beta prototype is claimed to be 1.5 inches shorter and 2.5 inches narrower than the original prototype. Additionally, it features a 6-inch long loading platform thanks to the shorter hood. The cargo deck is claimed to be waterproof and has oil drain plugs. The production-spec Cybertruck measures 231 inches long, 84 inches wide, and has a 145-inch wheelbase, according to the Tesla shareholder. Plus, it runs on 35-inch wheels.
Matthew revealed more details about the electric pickup truck, saying that the Cybertruck will be offered in two different variants. There will be a dual-motor variant and a performance variant with a tri-motor setup, just like the Tesla Model S Plaid. However, he said nothing about the Cybertruck with a four-motor powertrain announced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Additionally, Matthew noted that all Tesla Cybertruck variants will come with five seats. In a tweet, he wrote that the Beta prototype was 5% smaller than the original prototype, so Tesla removed the middle front seat. He also said that the automaker will make all accessories specific to the Cybertruck.
