The concept of a prospective “Cybertruck Mini” is still in the works, despite Tesla’s confirmation that the Cybertruck’s design has already been finalised. Part of this is due to Elon Musk’s earlier remarks. After all, the CEO has previously acknowledged numerous times that a smaller version of the all-electric pickup truck is not entirely out of the question.
Musk stated just days after the Cybertruck’s initial unveiling in 2019 that “building a smaller Cybertruck” will probably make sense in the long run. This is because the hulking all-electric truck is intended to compete in the pickup segment in the United States. The Cybertruck may simply be too large in other regions, such as Europe and Asia.
Musk even considered reducing the vehicle’s size by 3% at some point, though the CEO noted in May 2020 that even such a minor reduction would make the Cybertruck “too small.” Musk, on the other hand, stated on Twitter that Tesla will “probably do a smaller, tight world truck at some point.” Trip Chowdhry, a Global Equities Research analyst, predicted earlier this year that a “Cybertruck Mini” would be about 15-20 percent smaller.
An electric vehicle advocate shared an intriguing take on the “Cybertruck Mini,” based on the Model Y. According to the Tesla fan and engineer, his concept would actually simplify the production of the “Cybertruck Mini” because the vehicle shares key similarities with the Model Y.
A manufactured body that was modeled after the Cybertruck is included in the “Cybertruck Mini” concept. Additionally, the design of the concept eliminates compound curves, eliminating the need for stretch forming. The “Cybertruck Mini” concept’s clever features, such movable second-row seats that can extend the bed to eight feet, make it versatile and practical for industrial duties.
The “Cybertruck Mini” concept has been received fairly well by the electric vehicle community. While some EV aficionados have criticized the Model Y-inspired Cybertruck’s design and general appearance as being unattractive, few could contest that such a vehicle does have a number of advantages. After all, there is a market for smaller pickup trucks, so such a vehicle, particularly one constructed on Tesla’s most economical platform, would surely have a good chance in the marketplace.
