Pre-production of the Tesla Cybertruck has began in Texas, and particulars concerning the much-delayed electrical pickup are starting to trickle out. Whereas official info stays scarce, a video seemingly taken contained in the manufacturing facility exhibits that the mannequin is supplied with a small frunk.
Posted on TikTok, the eight-second flick exhibits a handful of pre-production Cybertruck fashions parked with their frunk (and, in some circumstances, their doorways) open. Whereas we won’t fairly inform what the within of the trunk seems like, we see sufficient to get an thought of its measurement: it stretches from concerning the entrance bumper to the entrance axle line, and it does not look notably deep. It might be greater than the frunk you get in, say, a Mannequin 3 or a Mannequin Y, but it surely’s additionally far smaller than the one supplied by the Ford F-150 Lightning. It seems sufficiently big for a carry-on suitcase and some luggage.

That is as a result of Cybertruck’s polarizing proportions, which had been chosen as a result of firm co-founder and CEO Elon Musk finds Ford’s vans “boring.” Giving the mannequin a extra truck-like silhouette much like the F-150’s or to the Chevrolet Silverado’s would have introduced an extended, taller hood and allowed designers to carve out an even bigger frunk, however the finish outcome would have regarded rather more typical. Whereas it is often troublesome to decipher what goes on at Tesla, we’re guessing the model figured the design can be an even bigger promoting level than the frunk.
Having a frunk is a bonus within the truck world, as a result of it provides customers a compartment to retailer gadgets that they do not wish to go away within the open cargo field or within the cabin. Nevertheless, the Cybertruck has been noticed with a power-operated tonneau cowl that is thick sufficient to face on. Whether or not this characteristic will carry over to the manufacturing mannequin (and whether or not it is going to be normal or optionally available) stays to be seen, but it surely’s a method homeowners will be capable to hold their gear dry. If Tesla does not supply it, I will wager the price of a Cybertruck reservation that the aftermarket will.
