This time, the billionaire tweeted that the commercial version of the car will boast the ability to turn the rear wheels. This will allow the electric truck to be more maneuverable. By the way, the Hummer EV has a similar function. General Motors calls this ride mode CrabWalk. Interestingly, Tesla did not initially talk about such a possibility. It was added after the demonstration of the car in 2019.
By the way, the production version of the Cybertruck will also receive a steering wheel instead of a steering wheel, as in the new Model S, as well as a 17-inch display.
Friday afternoons are usually Tesla design studio time. Cybertruck will be almost exactly what was shown. We’re adding rear wheel steering, so it can do tight turns & maneuver with high agility.
Lot of other great things coming.

Recall that Tesla plans to launch an electric pickup truck on the market later this year. The car will be sold in three versions. The youngest will receive a monodrive and will be able to travel 400 km on a single charge. This version will accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.5 seconds. The middle and older models will be able to boast of all-wheel drive, acceleration of 4.5 and 2.9 seconds, as well as a cruising range of up to 480 and 800 km, respectively.
