Tesla Cybertruck Has New Side Mirrors, Shows Latest Sighting in the Wild [Update]

Cybertruck side mirrors

Tesla’s Cybertruck is slated to start production in mid-2023 this year, ahead of first deliveries slated for later this year.

Now, another Cybertruck prototype has been spotted in the wild, in Palo Alto, California. That’s according to an image shared by ‘ftronz’ on Instagram yesterday.

We see a Cybertruck with its tonneau cover open, driving on the streets with its rear window down and also a new side mirror design, showing an angular triangle design. Side mirrors are required by U.S. regulations but in the past, Elon Musk has said they will be removable on Cybertruck. “They’re required by law, but designed to be easy to remove by owners,” said Musk back in October 2021.

The Cybertruck picture below shows the old mirror design that’s more like a rectangle than triangle.

It’s hard to judge the size of the Cybertruck from this rear angle, but the truck looks like a beast on the roads.

Back on January 31, Musk said, “I was just reviewing the production beta Cybertruck. It is incredible.”

Cybertruck will be produced at Tesla’s Giga Texas factory, and tooling equipment has been spotted at the site, such as the 9000t Giga Press from Italy’s IDRA.

Update: here’s a video of this Cybertruck, again shared by Flavio Tronzano on Instagram:

Musk commented on this Cybertruck, saying, “Yeah. Still many small tweaks to make it better (and the side mirrors are removable by owner), but this is very close to production design.”
