First Tesla Cybertruck Built at Giga Texas
Tesla marked a significant milestone as the first Cybertruck, its much-anticipated electric pickup truck, was assembled at its Giga Texas factory, with a picture shared on Saturday morning.
Known for its unconventional design, the Cybertruck promises to deliver a blend of performance comparable to a sports car and the utility of a truck.
Featuring a virtually indestructible exoskeleton, the Cybertruck’s design focuses on ultimate durability and passenger safety. The truck’s exterior shell is crafted from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel, and it’s equipped with Tesla’s armor glass, an ultra-strong glass and polymer-layered composite designed to improve performance and damage tolerance.

The Cybertruck boasts a payload capacity of up to 3,500 pounds and an adjustable air suspension, making it one of the most robust vehicles Tesla has built. It offers 100 cubic feet of lockable exterior storage, including a sturdy magic tonneau cover.
The truck provides ample space for a toolbox, a tire, and a Cyberquad, along with additional room to spare. Notable storage areas include the under-bed, frunk, and sail pillars. It also features the capability to tow over 14,000 pounds, demonstrating its strength in extreme situations.
The adaptive air suspension enables the vehicle to raise or lower four inches in either direction, providing easy access to the Cybertruck or the vault. It’s equipped with self-leveling capabilities that adjust to different situations and assist with various tasks.
The interior design can comfortably seat six, offering additional storage under the second-row seats. A high-tech 17” touchscreen with a brand-new custom user interface adorns the dashboard.
The all-electric design enables the Cybertruck to enter a new class of strength, speed, and versatility. Its powerful drivetrain and low center of gravity yield exceptional traction control and torque. This setup allows for acceleration from 0-60 mph in as little as 2.9 seconds and up to 500 miles of range.
This announcement marks a significant step forward in Tesla’s pursuit of innovation in the electric vehicle market. Giga Texas builds Tesla’s Model Y and now Cybertruck, with first deliveries expected in Q3.
