Cybertruck was announced by Tesla in November 2019, and since then it has received a lot of updates. While the founder and CEO of the company, Elon Musk happens to have a massive following on Twitter, he keeps revealing changes or additions to the EV via tweets. Recently, Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk announced that the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck instead of conventional door handles, would recognize the car owner and will open the door.
On July 15, 2021, Elon Musk replied to a tweet asking about new information or pictures about the upcoming EV. Musk said that “In the end, we kept production design almost exactly same as a show car. Just some small tweaks here& there to make it slightly better.” This reveals that there are no major design changes in the Tesla Cybertruck, and the company retains the iconic design that was revealed back in 2019. The tweet is embedded below for reference.
Musk also reveals that the Tesla Cybertuck will not have door handles like other vehicles. Instead, the car will recognize its owner and opens the door. This might be done using mobile key technology, or synchronization between the owner’s mobile phone and the system of the vehicle, so that it is aware of the owner is approaching the car or not. There are other ways of implementing it as well. Musk has also tweeted about the absence of door handles from the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck. However, this is not the first time Musk has tweeted about the absence of doors from Tesla Cybertruck.
Additionally, Musk also mentions that “Having all four wheels steer is amazing for nimble handling & tight turns!” The feature is in line with Tesla’s ideology to manufacture hybrid vehicles.
Tesla Cybertruck is claimed to be a better utility than a truck with more performance than a sportscar. The Cybertruck is the much-awaited EV from Tesla which aims to revolute the electric vehicle segment. Prior to this, Musk also revealed that the upcoming Cybertruck would feature a rear steering wheel.
With Cybertruck, Tesla aims to enter a new class speed and versatility with an all-electric design. The Cybertruck provides extraordinary traction control and torque, with an acceleration of 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to 500 miles of range.
