Tesla Cybertruck Dimensions Measured with iPhone’s AR Tool

Tesla Cybertruck preorder holder @Noah Sargent used the augmented reality (AR) tool from his iPhone to measure the bed lengths of the electric automaker’s upcoming truck and shared late last month. The Cybertruck prototype is currently on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.

Select Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch cameras can measure objects and people using the built-in Measure app, which leverages AR technology, essentially allowing you to have a digital measuring tape at all times. All you do is point your camera at an object and tap start and end points to see distance measurements.

As per the photographs, the Cybertruck prototype bed appears to be about 5’1″ wide, 6’7″ long and about 22 inches tall.

When the tailgate is folded out, it looks to be about 4’11” wide, with the top level measuring roughly 25.5 inches deep and the lower ramp partition measuring about 3’3″ from the tailgate to the ground.

While one user in the thread noted that Tesla’s chief designer Franz von Holzhausen said this prototype will not be the final size of the production model, Sargent answered back saying that the pictured vehicle will be within 3 percent of the production model.

The Cybertruck is set to begin delivering late this year, after Tesla begins producing the electric pickup in July, as was previously reported.

Tesla finalized the Cybertruck’s production design last June, according to past statements from CEO Elon Musk.

Hardware for the Cybertruck’s Giga Press casting machine were spotted at Giga Texas in recent weeks, and Italian casting machine manufacturer IDRA shared photos of the machine being readied to be shipped to the Austin, Texas plant in October.
