I think that heat makes black bad; even if a Tesla can keep itself at a reasonable temperature while parked, that eats battery, unless it's on a charger.

Very light colors, even if well clean-able, will need frequent cleaning to look clean. And they might be visually distracting, simply by being brighter. IMO, a neutral gray is the best interior for a vehicle, since it encourages attention to be on the outside without the liability of a black interior.

For an RV or something with a similar role, one might want an interior including decor suitable for living in. But for something that's for travel rather than a mobile residence, IMO the interior should be optimized for driver and passengers, not residents.

Buttonless, with too-small pants?

Well, the suit looks 2 sizes too small, but the white shoes are...unorthodox.
For men's suits there's, a traditional shoe color pairing, like so:

Similarly, automobile manufacturers adhere to interior and exterior colors that are compatible.
IMO, white interiors usually are paired with a different exterior color than what the Cybertruck is.

But, to each their own.

Tell me you don’t live in FL, with out saying you don’t live in FL.
We have white in our Y, and they are great. I got a 3 loaner from Tesla today, it had black interior. I think I got 3rd degree burns through my shorts. No thanks. I’ll get some seat covers, when it’s gonna get dirty. But definitely need white, or some sort of fabric interior.
I live in Florida and 3 of my 5 cars have black leather seats and interiors.

3) White Mini Countryman

No leg burning problems here. However, I've learned it's all about the tint (dark, and with ceramic), plus the use of a windshield sun shade while parked.

I know owners in TX with the black interior, it's more claustrophobic than anything. I've got the grey interior like the above, it goes with the stainless exterior nicely.

The problem I have with the black interior in the Model Y is that it's too black in there. You almost need a flashlight to find anything. My truck, on the other hand, is not nearly that dark with its black interior. I have ceramic window tint all around to include the windshield and THAT makes a TON of difference in how fast things heat up. Given enough time, a white interior and black interior will be the same temperature. It is nice when your AC can cool things down really fast because the heat comes in slower through the ceramic tint. Plus, the dash never gets hot. Yes, it gets hot in Nebraska...

I also didn't like that the interior was too dark. I ended up buying blue seat covers. It made the interior look fresher. I really like them. Moreover, it is easier to keep my car clean inside as I can take the covers off and wash them.
