Tesla design boss Franz von Holzhausen demonstrated the original Cybertruck concept when it appeared at the California College of Design at the Pasadena alumni exhibition earlier this week.
The truck is on display on campus next to another vehicle design, attracting many to take a close look.
The prototype looks to have some equipment placed on the hood and above the right front wheel. On the front, it looks like it has a pair of sensors or cameras, which is likely for autonomous driving testing.
Production of the Tesla Cybertruck is expected to begin in 2023, with deliveries starting sometime in the middle of the year. The manufacturer is reportedly currently preparing for production of the Cybertruck at its plant in Texas, the same factory that also makes the Model Y crossover.
Tesla has yet to share projected sales figures for the Cybertruck, but with a claimed 1 million bookings, the automaker is confident it can sell as many as possible. Giga Texas will be able to produce up to 500,000 vehicles per year.
The single-motor Cybertruck costs an estimated $40,000, while the three-motor performance model costs around $70,000.
Elon Musk said late last year that the truck would also be available with a quad-motor powertrain, which along with rear-wheel steering required extra engineering time and this was one of the reasons behind the delayed launch.
