Musk had earlier confirmed that the Cybertruck will also come with a high-end four-motor variant when the electric vehicle will be launched. “Initial production will be 4 motor variant, with independent, ultra fast response torque control of each wheel," he conveyed in a tweet. The Tesla Cybertruck has also been spotted undergoing road testing and some design updates have been observed in the vehicle. The electric truck has been spotted with a gigantic wiper.

The EV company chief has also stated that the brand has no plans to offer any colour or wrap for the Cybertruck at least on the first go. Musk shared that the electric truck can come in any colour as long as it is nothing. The EV has a stainless-steel exoskeleton that promises to offer the owner and passengers strong durability and protection.
