New Tesla Cybertruck prototype car found rearview mirror, possibly rear wheel steering
Tesla seems to be testing the turning radius of electric pickup trucks, possibly the steering of the rear wheels.
Even with this delay, we would like to see Cybertruck prototypes being tested on public roads, such as the Ford F150 Lightning and Rivian R1T trucks discovered last year, but the Cybertruck prototypes have few witnesses.
Tesla has held some events in Gigafactories in New York and Texas, but we can never confirm that there is more than one prototype.
Now, a sighting of a new Tesla Cybertruck makes us hope that the automaker may be testing a new prototype.
Jesse Sandoval (Jesse Sandoval) spotted Cybertruck last week at the Castle Airport in Central California, just a few hours away from the Fremont factory.
Due to the low resolution, it is difficult to collect a lot of information from the lens, but one thing is clear: the vehicle has side-view mirrors.
Tesla has been pushing to allow cameras to replace rear-view mirrors to improve aerodynamics, thereby increasing efficiency and range.
If Tesla launches Cybertruck now, it needs side-view mirrors, which shows that the car has made some progress in its launch.
Also, at the very beginning of the video, it looks like Tesla is testing the turning radius of the truck, and it seems to be making a very short turn.
Again, due to the resolution of the video, we cannot confirm, but the vehicle may have a rear-wheel steering function.
Tesla is expected to update Cybertruck for the production version, and one of the main improvements will be the addition of rear-wheel steering.
Earlier this summer, Elon Musk confirmed that Tesla Cybertruck will be equipped with a four-wheel steering system, which will achieve a function similar to the "crab mode" of Hummer electric vehicles.
Tesla is a transportation and energy company. It sells cars in the "Tesla Motors" division and stationary battery packs for household, commercial and utility scale projects in the "Tesla Energy" division.
Telsa Cybertruck will be released in 2021, with a starting price of US$39,900. High-end models can travel 500 miles on a single charge.
