First look INSIDE Tesla’s long-awaited Cybertruck revealed – but Twitter users are unimpressed
Images purporting to be the very first look inside Elon Musk’s highly anticipated Tesla Cybertruck have surfaced online, but left Twitter users less than impressed.
Several photos of the interior appeared Wednesday, believed to have been shot during Elon Musk’s shareholder day last week.
One Twitter user said the Cybertruck’s “interior looks like it came from a low-budget 1980s sci-fi prop,” while others called in the dark grab cabin downright ‘ugly’.
An industry expert also wondered, “How many orders are being canceled” now that the interior has been revealed?
The images, shared on a Cybertruck enthusiast forum, aren’t confirmed, but they show a huge interior screen, futuristic-looking seat controllers, and a bare-bones cabin.

The images are unconfirmed, but they show a huge interior screen, futuristic-looking seat controllers and a bare-bones cabin.
The Cybertruck – which is expected to start at $39,900 – has been seen in the wild several times, but the interior has never been shown before.
The photos show a view from the driver and passenger seats and a side view inside the Cybertruck, which were shared by Cybertruck Owners Club.
There is a huge screen in the center of the dashboard, but wires hang from the back.
Twitter user Facts Chaser tweeted, “Why is the screen getting activated over this DIY thread almost four years after its unveiling?”
The user also highlighted a feature on the diver’s left side: a small diamond-shaped window.
“That A-pillar monstrosity looks like it would seriously obscure visibility,” he tweeted.
The center console has a paneled design as the cover that slides open and closed, similar to what was in the early Model S and X vehicles.
However, fans are more disappointed with the Cybertruck’s lack of a third center front seat, which has been rumored since the vehicle’s debut in 2019.
What the seats do have are controllers made in the same finish as the exterior and crafted in unique designs that some fans were thrilled to see.
However, people weren’t so thrilled when a Cybertruck was spotted on the streets of California last month.
An image of the steel-clad vehicle surfaced online showing it stationary in a Fremont parking lot that looked nothing like the one Musk initially revealed.
In addition to bizarre cords along the top, the Cybertruck also had different wheels and a front chassis that “looks like something a four-year-old made with Lego blocks.”
Twitter user Hilson Valli tweeted. “The only way this could work for Musk is if he said ‘Just kidding!’ announces. and releases a reasonable-looking truck that has been secretly developed all along. Otherwise this will be a huge flop. It looks like nonsense.’
Some likened it to “something turned down for a role in Mad Max: Fury Road” or the mega-weapon from the 1983 movie “Warrior of the Lost World.”
Gee, I admit most of the promo photos looked pretty bad*** but this side profile is ugly. The stainless steel becomes a mess from scratches and finger smudges,” one user tweeted.
Telsa’s Cybertruck became a sensation when it was unveiled to the world in November 2019.

The celebrated event quickly became a nightmare for Musk after the glass of his new electric “Cybertruck” was smashed just after he boasted that it was “unbreakable.”
During the announcement of the truck – which looks like an armored vehicle with angular sides – Tesla design chief Franz von Holshausen tried to prove the glass was “unbreakable” by throwing a heavy metal ball at close range.
Musk was heard muttering “oh my f***ing God” as the glass smashed.
Some speculated that the hiccups might have been part of the show, but it didn’t stop people from reserving one for themselves.
The waiting list without reservation is at least three years from the delivery of the first Cybertruck.
Musk had promised production would begin in early 2021, but that date has been pushed back. And every year a new date is set and missed.
The CEO previously blamed battery issues for the delay, saying each Cybertruck would cost “literally a million dollars apiece or more” if Tesla had started production of the futuristic vehicle in 2021.
Production is now scheduled for this year, with deliveries in Q3.
