While replying to a Twitter user asking if Cybertruck will come with a yoke instead of a traditional steering wheel, Musk wrote, “Cybertruck is intentionally an insane technology bandwagon." In another comment, he said, “Cybertruck will reach far into a post-apocalyptic future & bring that technology to now." Though he did not specifically answer the question about yoke, it is quite likely that Cybertruck will come with a yoke given Musk's liking for the technology.
Tesla may implement the steer-by-wire system on the Cybertruck that it is currently being developed and make it the first vehicle where the yoke will actually not feel like an afterthought, as per Insideevs.
Musk highlighted how Tesla Cybertruck will come with futuristic pieces of technology that people cannot imagine being implemented today, though he did not exactly mention what technology he was referring to. The Cybertruck is expected to enter production late next year.
A recent report by Electrek had revealed that the upcoming Cybertruck already has an estimated 1.3 million units booked and the amount totaling approximately $80 billion. Tesla Cybertruck had been showcased for the first time ever in November of 2019 and has been touted as a battery-powered vehicle with the capability of a pick-up but performance of a sportscar.
The Cybertruck will cost as much as $39,900 for the base single-motor version and $69,900 for the tri-motor range-topper. The vehicle claims to have a range of nearly 950 kms, acceleration to 100 kmph in 3 seconds and capability to tow up to 6,300 kilos.
