Just one day prior to Tesla’s announcement of the first production unit, the camouflaged prototype was spotted.

Despite the frequency of Tesla Cybertruck prototype sightings. They consistently manage to generate significant excitement and curiosity among fans on each occasion.

Notably, a day before Tesla unveiled a picture of the first production Cybertruck at Gigafactory Texas, a Twitter user came across a camouflaged Cybertruck on 280, specifically between Alpine Road and Page Hill Road near Palo Alto, California.

The brief video provides a glimpse of the electric truck effortlessly overtaking another vehicle on the highway. It’s not surprising that the Twitter user spotted the truck in close proximity to the Tesla Fremont Factory and its engineering headquarters in Palo Alto.

During the 2022 earnings call, CEO Elon Musk revealed that Tesla has amassed over 1.5 million reservations for the electric truck. With volume production expected to commence at the beginning of 2024.

The upcoming ramp-up of Cybertruck deliveries next year sparks curiosity about how it will reshape the appearance of American roads. Social media users have shared numerous pictures of the Cybertruck in transit, revealing its remarkable and eye-catching design. Which prominently features an “impenetrable” exoskeleton crafted from “ultra-hard cold-rolled stainless steel.”

Rumors suggest that the Cybertruck’s debut will include a 350-mile range. With a potential introduction of a 500-mile version at a later date. If these rumors prove accurate, the initial range of the Cybertruck will be comparable to the Rivian R1T but less than that of the Hummer EV 3X and Chevrolet Silverado EV.

Initially, Tesla projected a base price of $39,900 for the rear-wheel-drive version and $49,900 for the dual-motor all-wheel-drive variant of the Cybertruck. However, the company has since removed pricing and specifications from the website, leaving details uncertain at present.

Elon Musk hinted at the cost of the electric truck following Ford’s recent price reductions on the F-150 Lightning. Emphasizing that the Ford EV remains expensive, particularly considering the current high-interest rates for car loans.

Following the price cuts, the F-150 Lightning’s Pro variant now starts at just under $50,000. Considering Musk’s suggestions, it is conceivable that the entry-level Cybertruck could be priced within the range of $35,000 to $40,000.
