The video posted by Cybertruck Owners Club shows the Tesla Cybertruck prototype's rear wheels turning in the opposite direction of the front wheels.

The attendees of the event also got to see the updated features of the Tesla Cybertruck like no handles, retractable rear glass, side view cameras in the plastic cladding around the front wheels and a charging port on one of the fenders. However, the interior didn't feature anything significant as it was a prototype. The yoke in the EV did not feature any airbag or many parts.

Tesla chief Elon Musk confirmed that the production of Tesla Cybertruck will take next year, likely at the start of the year. The electric pickup truck was supposed to enter production in late 2021 which was later postponed to late 2022. After launch, Tesla Cybertruck may compete with the likes of GMC Hummer EV and Ford F-150 Lightning.
