The production of the Tesla Cybertruck, as we know, has been postponed to the end of 2022 and will only be fully operational during 2023. All this, provided that there are no further delays. Much has been said over the months of small changes that the electric pickup should undergo before going into production. However, they have never been spelled out in detail. Now, there is a short video recorded by Jesse Sandoval in which we see a prototype of the electric pickup intent on carrying out some tests at Castle Airport, California, a few hours from Fremont. Thanks to the video it is possible to notice some interesting things.

Although the quality of the footage is not good, it can still be noted that the Cybertruck features traditional rear-view mirrors. This is an important detail as the prototypes seen so far used an external camera system. A solution that improves vehicle efficiency and therefore fuel consumption. This news, however, was expected. In fact, in America it is not allowed to be able to replace rear-view mirrors with cameras. In Europe, however, this technical solution is allowed.

If Tesla intends to take its new electric vehicle to the road, with current American laws it will necessarily have to equip it with classic rear-view mirrors. In any case, on this issue Elon Musk intervened confirming their presence but added that they were designed for can be easily removed by the owners.

The video also shows the pickup making a very tight steering, proving to be particularly agile in relation to its size. This would suggest that the prototype can have 4 steering wheels. Unfortunately, the low quality of the video does not allow us to understand this detail with absolute certainty but, in the past, Elon Musk had stated that the Cybertruck would have integrated this particular technician which would have made it possible to have greater agility, especially in the tightest maneuvers.

It seems, therefore, that Jesse Sandoval has intercepted one of the latest prototypes of Tesla’s electric pickup. Too bad for the quality of the movie and for the images taken from afar. In fact, it would have been an opportunity to verify further differences with the old prototypes. The hope is that over the next few months we will see more Cybetruck prototypes around the streets to better understand the novelties that the American manufacturer will introduce in the production version.
