Which is made of “Tesla Armor Glass”, Which can absorb and redirect impact force for improved performance and damage tolerance (According to the Company).
Along with the strength, the looks are also very good. From the horizontal headlight covering the entire front to the sharp lines on the side to the horizontal Taillight Covering the whole back, everything is just perfect and looks very futuristic. The accompanying wheel spokes that protrude beyond the sidewalls of the tires give the truck a rather rubbish look. and represents the Ultimate durability of the truck.

The Tesla Cybertruck also used a very unconventional Interior design like some other Tesla cars. Simplicity and a minimal environment are visible throughout the interior. Where there are almost no buttons and rotary dials (Except the steering wheel). There is no center console to control the interior features of the car. Instead, the center gets a giant 17-inch touchscreen. Which controls both the MID (multi-informational display) and infotainment system of the car as well as the climate control. In short, it is an all-in-one screen from where all the controls of the car are operated.
The truck gets half-cut steering which Tesla calls the Yoke steering wheel which we’ve seen in the tesla model S. The interiors of the Cybertruck offer a total seating capacity of 6. and If this space is falling short for you, then it’s equipped with a 6.5-foot bed what they call the Cybertruck vault.
