Have you seen the new Tesla Cybertruck? The advanced vehicle looks like something right out of James Cameron’s The Terminator, with its sharp-edged, stainless-steel exterior. Although the upcoming vehicle has yet to ship to buyers, Futurism reports that some onlookers were able to capture a photo of the all-electric truck in a not-so-beautiful state, being towed on a public street.

In the following photo, the Tesla Cybertruck looks to have been put through the wringer. The windshield is cracked in every direction, and the paint job appears to be completely wrecked. Perhaps the company is performing some test runs on the vehicle before it’s made available to consumers.

The Tesla Cybertruck has the capabilities to give all the top-selling pickup trucks a run for their money. The razor-sharp exterior is constructed with scratch and dent-resistant stainless steel, with an exoskeleton that can absorb and redirect impact force for improved performance and damage tolerance. In addition to available all-wheel drive, the upcoming truck can tow up to 14,000 pounds and has an estimated driving range of 500-plus miles. Those particular specs only apply to the most expensive model of the Cybertruck, with the most affordable model starting at $39,000.

When will the Tesla Cybertruck be available to the public? Considering the company has delayed the truck’s production multiple times already, your guess is as good as ours. Back in April, CEO Elon Musk promised the new truck would be out in 2023, but he didn’t give an exact date. Regardless, the pickup with come stacked with some impressive stats. For instance, the Cybertruck will be available in three different configurations, which are based on the number of electric motors each has. The single-motor version will feature rear-wheel drive, while the two and three-motor models will come equipped with all-wheel drive. Each additional motor impacts acceleration, driving range, and towing capacity.  Tesla claims the three-motor version of the Cybertruck can go from zero to 60mph in 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 130mph. Impressive!

Out of the gate, the Tesla Cybertruck will be competing with trucks such as the Rivian R1T and Ford’s F-150 Lightning, but the upcoming vehicle packs enough of a punch that consumers can’t help but drool. Tesla’s new pickup can comfortably seat six people, with additional storage under the second-row seats. As far as exterior storage is concerned, the Cybertruck features 100 cubic feet of lockable storage, including under-bed, frunk, and sail pillars. The truck also includes a magic tonneau cover that Tesla claims is strong enough to stand on.

Other noteworthy features of the Tesla Cybertruck include the capability of raising or lowering suspension four inches in either direction, while self-leveling features adapt to any circumstance and aid with every job. Plus, no Tesla vehicle is complete without an enormous touchscreen, and the Cybertruck features a massive 17-inch one with an all-new customized user interface.

Hopefully, CEO Elon Musk stays true to his word, and we see the Tesla Cybertruck sometime next year. Due to lithium shortages that have impacted several EV carmakers and numerous tech markets, however, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the date shifted again.
