Elon Musk admits Cybertruck could fail

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the next e-car is always likely to fail.

However, Musk plans to keep the Cybertruck design as a giant metal trapezoid as the show car.

He also made it clear that he doesn't care about the risk of Cybertruck failing because he personally loves the design.

He wrote: "The Internet, even if others don't like it, I like it very much. The other trucks look like replicas of the same thing. But Cybertruck seems to have been created by aliens from the future."

The 2019 launch of Cybertruck caused a stir because the design of this car was unique, and Musk asked Tesla's design director to try and break the car's windows out.

The design director threw a metal ball at the window, and Musk was surprised when the glass broke even though it remained in place.

Although Tesla suddenly stepped in and doesn't know when it will start delivering the e-truck, the first orders are pouring in. Elon Musk boasted 250,000 orders within a week of Cybertruck's debut.

At Tesla's annual general meeting and Battery Day events in September, Elon Musk announced that Tesla had received so many inquiries from Cybertruck that the company stopped counting them.

"The demand is huge," he says. More than 500,000 inquiries. I think it's about 600,000. And there are a lot of them. We stop counting.

That was before competitors introduced their plans for more traditional battery-powered trucks like the Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Hummer EV.

Musk has now said that Tesla has no plans to install door handles on the Cybertruck, but he hasn't made clear whether the vehicle can meet US vehicle safety standards.

He also mentioned that Tesla decided to add a four-wheel steering system to the Cybertruck. This should allow him to move in a straight diagonal line and enter or exit a confined space.

He wrote, "We've kept the production design just as we did with the show car, but made some minor tweaks to improve it. There's no door handle. The car recognizes you and opens the door. All-wheel steering is useful when dealing with tight turns."

The four-wheel steering function makes the Cyber-Truck directly more competitive with the GMC Hummer EV with the side mode function.

Musk does not comment on the Cyber ​​Quad, which is a must-have Cyber-compatible ATV product. In addition, you have to know more about it.

In the first quarter, Tesla described the Cybertruck as being in development. The company plans to release interim updates and second-quarter results on July 26.
