To me this is a good sign of several things:
1) The CyberATV is coming (as presented at reveal night)
2) CT's bed would likely be at least 6' in order to accommodate CyberATV as a pairing option. I'm sill hoping for a 6.5' bed as it'll be the largest among other EV trucks.

Fun fact - The Yamaha that was driven up the ramp was just under 6.5' long.

Elsewhere on this website are SWAG claims that the newer prototypes bed measurements are 5’ - 10”. Those are prototypes. They had extended roof and mods pointing to mid-gate or solar tonneau accommodations.

I was disappointed CT had gone Sports truck bed length.

People make guesses, but no one who has access to one has said the bed has shrank.

There's no reason to think it has, either.

So where does one go to find out more about the competition (or at least get an English translation of the screenshots? Before beginning the design it might be nice to know the specifications of the CyberQuad. Without that they pretty much have the design - it will use 2170s. Everything else will be TBD until you get the specifications for the quad, you know minor things like voltage, required maximum amperes, physical layout of the quad to figure out where they might go and how much room you have to play with (if not already specified). This might be a fun project if I can get some more info. Battery use is so dependent on many variables, but weight, terrain and throttle use are the biggest in terms of range.
BTW, that is me on my electric trials bike in the photo on the left. This year marks my 16th year of competing on it. The bike started life as a 2000 Montesa 315R.

Did no one bring a tape measure ( ye, a prototype may be different) to the rodeo?

Not just a drum with which to gen market enthusiasm. Tesla has cultural sensitivities to tease out rather than one-size fits all with its western design theme.

Exciting design exercise still…

Thanx so much Crissa. It does look more like a recruitment, more of a conceptual design than something to be built. As always, I really appreciate your very considered input on this site. Thanx, Paul

Lexus are on it already. Tesla will be a joiner to the SxS as car evolution.
As a side note.

If Tesla built something like this as an EV that was street legal I would be all over it.

Other side note. The ground on that render is disturbing and unnatural looking. Looks like a high school kid went to town with the cloning tool in Photoshop to fill most of it. Also… it apparently teleported into that location.

I'd kinda prefer BYD's new cells for these. Ever since tucker and dale vs evil all I see are stakes in the ground waiting to harpoon me.

Tesla is looking for that special person who will find a way to insert 2170's in the handle grips.
