Elon Musk told why the Tesla Cybertruck pickup looks so weird

A few days ago, Tesla introduced the futuristic Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck, whose unusual design

has already become an occasion for jokes and memes. Now, the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, explained why the electric car looks like this.

Why?

At the presentation, Ilon said that when creating Tesla Cybertruck, the designers were inspired by the films “Blade Runner” and “The Spy Who Loved Me”. Now Musk admitted that the whole thing is in the materials.

The fact is that the body is made of superhardcold-rolled stainless steel (30X), which is several times stronger than other alloys that make cars. However, such steel is not amenable to stamping - it simply breaks the stamping press. The developers could not give the pickup the usual shape, so they took one sheet of 3 mm thick and bent it in several places.

It's a success

Despite the huge number of memes, the pickup truck is definitely popular. Tesla has already collected more than 200 thousand pre-orders for Tesla Cybertruck, and this in just three days.

Recall for pre-orderpay $ 100, then this money can be returned. Cybertruck production will begin in 2021, and the top version with high mileage and speed will be released in 2022.
