Per @NZ_Tim93 on X, two Cybertrucks were seen loaded up on a carrier and leaving the New Zealand facility, presumably bound for the US. Might this meant that Winter Testing is complete, and we're getting even closer to the Delivery Day event?



So exciting! Now if we can just confirm that there will still be a 6 seat option! (I have a family of 6, so it is necessary. But every picture recently of the RC's have a damned center console in the front that doesn't flip up).

Why are they driving on the wrong side of the road?!
(Last visited New Zealand pre-Covid) Even the cheapest beer in
New Zealand is darn good! Spent time in Twizel and Dunedin.
There was already a Tesla charging station up and running on the
road in towards Twizel.

Because it's the southern hemisphere, and everything is upside-down, duh

I don't think 6 seats are going to happen because there is a screen directly in front of the center console. Even if there was a seat there it wouldn't have an airbag, and therefore it would be unsafe.

In the southern hemisphere, it's a trip to see the stars in somewhat a reversed configuration.
Tahiti and New Zealand

There is a screen on Rams and F1Fiddies now, and they have 6 seats and airbags.

There are lots of cars, buses and airliners where passengers have LCD screens in front of them and no airbags.

I don’t think they’re doing a 6-seater. They shrunk the CyberTruck by 5%, so it would fit in a standard US garage. The reduction in width negates a 3rd seat in the front. There’s also safety considerations. For example, no room for a 3rd airbag because that’s where the touchscreen goes. You wouldn‘t want to launch one of your kids into a touchscreen face first if you ever got into an accident.

Well, let’s just say it depends on which one and what day…
