In the previous spy shots, the front trunk was captured without the installed liner. The leaked video shot inside Tesla’s Texas Gigafactory showcases several pre-production units of the tesla Cybertruck. Their frunks are open, revealing the interior lining, giving us a glimpse of the actual size of the all-electric pickup truck’s front trunk.
Published by Twitter user @ray4tesla, the eight-second long vertical video also gives a brief glimpse of the upcoming EV’s suspension setup, which is set at the lowest ride height setting.
Before this, from the spy shots of the yet-to-be-finalized electric truck, it appeared to have quite a substantial frunk, but those images captured a prototype that didn’t have the final interior liner, making it hard to gauge how deep the storage area would be. However, now with this new leak, we finally get to see what lies beneath the Cybertruck’s hood.
And at first glance, it seems that the front trunk is comparatively smaller than its main rival, the Ford F-150 Lightning, which can handle up to 400 pounds (181 kilograms) and holds 14.1 cubic feet (400 liters) of cargo space.
For the rest of the technical details, we’ll have to wait for the official delivery program, expected in the third quarter, possibly in September, when Elon Musk should provide insights about this highly anticipated electric pickup.
When the pickup was initially showcased to the public back in 2019, Tesla stated that it would come with three powertrain options: a single-motor rear-wheel-drive variant with a 250-mile (402-kilometer) range, a dual-motor all-wheel-drive version with a 300-mile (482-kilometer) range, a tri-motor AWD trim with a 500-mile (804-kilometer) range, and a quad-motor AWD version with a staggering 620-mile (998-kilometer) range on a single charge.
It was supposed to start at a price below $40,000, but all these details were removed from Tesla’s official website in October 2021, leaving room for speculation about what the electric pickup truck will bring to the table.
