Tesla’s smaller, two-door Cybertruck design was hiding in plain sight

Date:

The design for the smaller variant of the Tesla Cybertruck seems to be hidden in plain sight. As recently noted by some eagle-eyed electric vehicle enthusiasts, Tesla shared a pretty interesting version of its futuristic all-electric pickup truck in its exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Tesla’s exhibit at the Petersen Museum is comprehensive as it highlights the company’s history, as well as the products and innovations that have made it a dominant force in the EV industry over the years. Being an up and coming vehicle that has generated a lot of excitement, the Tesla Cybertruck was featured heavily in the exhibit. Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen was even interviewed in the Cybertruck section.

Included in the Cybertruck section of the exhibit was a sketch of the vehicle positioned close to the futuristic pickup. The sketch is especially interesting because it depicts a pickup truck that is quite different from the colossal Cybertruck prototype unveiled in late 2019 or the updated alpha Cybertruck units later spotted in California. Unlike Tesla’s prototypes, the vehicle in the sketch was a two-door Cybertruck.

A number of things stand out in the sketch of the two-door Cybertruck. First, the vehicle looks more compact than the Cybertruck prototypes Tesla has built to date. The cabin still looks spacious and airy thanks to the long windscreen and short bonnet. Its cargo box, which is also covered by a tonneau, also seems capable of carrying a lot of cargo, despite the vehicle’s apparently more compact dimensions.

The two-door Cybertruck design featured in the sketch at the Petersen Automotive Museum has received a lot of positive response from the Tesla community, with some commenting that they actually prefer the more compact look of the all-electric pickup. Fortunately, the idea that Tesla will release a smaller Cybertruck in the future is not far-fetched at all.

Elon Musk himself has said so in the past. Following the unveiling of the original Cybertruck prototype in late 2019, Musk was asked on Twitter if Tesla would be willing to make a more compact version of the Cybertruck at a later date. Musk responded positively to the research, noting, “In the long run, it probably makes sense to build a smaller Cybertruck as well.” If such a vehicle is anything like the two-door Cybertruck sketch, then Tesla would probably have another bestseller in its lineup.

The two-door Cybertruck sketch was featured in several parts of Franz von Holzhausen’s CNBC interview at the Petersen Museum. A video of the interview can be viewed below.
