Tesla Cybertruck Release Date

Tesla Cybertruck: A “Special Project”
Musk maintained his love for Cybertruck, even though he hyped it up after confirming that the delivery date was wrong.
Tesla founder Elon Musk described the Tesla electric truck as a “special project,” and said that it would be “like a glitch on the Matrix.”
Musk also stated that it would be “like Neo had a vehicle.”
Neo, the Matrix protagonist, sports futuristic stylings similar to that of the Cybertruck’s old-fashioned metal feature.

Musk stated that he will continue to design the electric truck concept, even if others oppose it.
