Aching for an angular SUV that doesn’t look like any other SUV out there, but Tesla’s Cybertruck is just too big for your taste? Don’t lose hope. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, a smaller version of the Cybertruck is “highly likely down the road.”
Musk tweeted the comment in response to a Twitter user asking for a smaller version of the Cybertruck that would be better suited to European roads.
Another user commented that “reducing width is more important than reducing length, at least when it comes to cities,” to which Musk responded “true,” suggesting that this new, smaller Cybertruck will be narrower than the current one.
Of course, the “down the road” bit might mean this product is still years away, but it’s comforting to know that the company (or, at the very least, Elon Musk) is thinking about it.
Musk recently commented that the Cybertruck, which still isn’t available in its current iteration, is the perfect vehicle for the apocalypse, as it comes with bulletproof body, shatterproof windows (well, perhaps not against lightly thrown metal balls), an onboard generator and an air compressor. Whether the apocalypse is something you want to think about when purchasing a car is another matter.
The Cybertruck should become available for purchase in late 2021, with more configurations coming in 2022.
