While he didn’t confirm the Cybertruck’s new dimensions, we do know its prototype was 5885mm long, 2027mm wide and 1905mm tall, meaning the latest version could be as ‘small’ as 5708mm long, 1966mm wide and 1848mm tall.
Mr Musk also added that the Cybertruck’s centre line is now more level, while its windowsill height is lower, making for a less asymmetrical – and therefore more conventional – design.

He also recently revealed Cybertruck buyers “will be able to wrap it in any colour or pattern”, with traditional paintwork options seemingly off the table due to the Ford F-150 rival’s ultra-hard 30x cold-rolled stainless-steel bodywork.
That said, the Cybertruck’s design are more than just metal and glass deep, as Mr Musk also recently announced its self-levelling air suspension (with adaptive springs and dampers) is being tweaked with increased travel for improved off-roading.
Given the tri-motor variant sprints from a standstill to 97km/h (60mph) in less than 2.9 seconds while on the way to completing the quarter-mile pass in 10.8s, according to Tesla, the Plaid version will undoubtedly be a revelation.
Needless to say, more changes will be made to the Cybertruck in the next 18 months, so stay tuned.
