Tesla Unveils Their New Truck – And It’s A Whole New Shape

The highly anticipated pickup truck from famed American electric car maker Tesla has finally been unveiled – and the event didn’t go as planned.

Elon Musk, the outspoken CEO of Tesla, took to the stage amid a series of colored lights and lasers in one of the company’s flashiest presentations to-date.

“100 years of the same,” read the first few slides of the opening presentation.

It appears that Tesla is looking to disrupt the truck industry by releasing something nobody expected – and many have a hard time believing is even real.

“Trucks have been the same for a very long time, like 100 years,” Musk said during the demonstration that was live-streamed worldwide.

The brand new Tesla “Cybertruck” – as they call it – was inspired by James Bond films and takes up a very angled, boxy, and geometric design that, truthfully, doesn’t even look like a truck.

You might not even know it had a bed in the back if you didn’t get up close to it or see it hauling something.

The body of the Cybertruck is made of a single piece of “ultra-hard 30x cold-rolled stainless steel” and a new hardened glass Tesla is calling “Armor Glass.”

The truck, which will outperform many with its amped-up specs, and optional tri-motor design, starts at just $39,999 for the base model. You can reserve one now, but there has been no clear release date given.
