Musk just tweeted that the production Cybertruck will be about 82" in width and that the upper laser blade lights (at top of the cab) will be standard. (y)




For width comparison:

2020 F-150 Lariat Width (with mirrors): 96.8 in
2020 F-150 Lariat Width (mirrors folded): 83.5 in

I like that the Cybertruck updates from Musk so far haven't signaled much is changing between the concept and the production Cybertruck.

I wonder though if by mentioning the upper laser blade lights specifically without mentioning the laser blade headlights, it means that either 1) the laser blade headlights are no more or 2) they're not coming standard like the upper lights. Or maybe I'm just reading into a tweet waaay too much

I feel you on that. I hope the headlight stays! I hope it all stays!

I wouldn't read too much into the omission. I think he didn't mention the headlights because the upper laser blade lights are there partially to satisfy a DOT requirement for a vehicle that measures over 80" wide. The tweet wasn't about the headlights.

I have seen elsewhere that the the laser blade headlights had to be changed to have two distinct light sources due to regulations.

I would rather see a 84" width, my Tundra has a 79.9" width and would like to see more
If they make it too big then charging in the garage is less possible and a deal breaker for many, including me.

If they're finalizing a production design that means that they're close to gearing for production. I hope this means they're as ahead of schedule as they were with the model Y.

Unrelated: has anyone estimated the turning radius? That depends on the wheelbase right?

Turning radius depends on the maximum angle the front wheels can turn, as well as the wheel base length.
