Elon want Tesla’s Cybertruck to be smaller.

The Cybertruck’s launch left us in awe. The edgy off-road electric pickup truck was a surprise gift from Musk to the world. Launching the Tesla’s Cybertruck and testing it in front of a live crowd is Elon Musk’s style.

Cybertruck was also seen competing in a tug-o-war with its rival Ford-150, since then they have compared on each minor detail. Recently Elon tweeted about his plans of reducing the size of Tesla’s Cybertruck to fit it in regular garages, and updating its adaptive air suspension.

Elon tweeted, “Reviewed [the Cybertruck] design with Franz last night. Even 3% smaller is too small. It will be pretty much this size [referring to the prototype].”

The prototype that Tesla unveiled is 231.7 inches long, 79.8 inches wide and 75 inches tall, with up to a 35-degree approach angle, a 28-degree departure angle, and up to 16 inches of ground clearance. It is almost the same size as the Ford 150. But after Musk reviewed the design with Tesla’s chief design head, Franz von Holzhausen, they came to the conclusion that the size was hard to be reduced. Elon then announced that Tesla might come up with a smaller new truck segment rather than adjusting Cybertruck’s size.

“We’ll probably do a smaller, tight world truck at some point.”

Musk is brainstorming, trying to make Cyertruck a little smaller without downsizing its capacity. Tesla also has plans for higher variants of Cybertruck for the future. Those two electric trucks will have between 300 and 500 miles of range and be equipped with dual- and tri-motor powertrains and start at $49,000. Right now Tesla is acquiring land to start a new factory for the production of Cybertruck in Texas. We expected this Earth-rover to be a little more colorful as well.
