5 Cybertrucks with frunks wide open in new leaked video from Gigatexas

    We are racing towards a date when the Tesla Cybertruck hits the streets. With the first customer deliveries expected before the end of Q3, a new video has surfaced from inside Tesla’s Gigafactory in Texas.

    The video was published on TIkTok by user randomness2646.

    While we knew the latest vehicle from Tesla was heading to production, seeing as many as 5 of them on the factory floor, is a positive sign.

    There are supposed to be many surprises with the Cybertruck and something Tesla hasn’t really shown off officially is the frunk.

    From the video, we see 3 of the Cybertrucks in the foreground have their frunks wide open, which provides the best view yet of how much space there. While it uses a similar opening technique to the F150 Lightning, the space available is certainly much smaller.

    As the camera passes the first Cybertruck, panning down its side, we see what appears to be production rims.. I’m expecting the covers we saw at the unveiling will ship with the Cybertruck, but this is what they look like if you remove them.. overall, they look pretty good.

    We see the front seats covered in plastic, a common technique to protect the interior from damage. If these were engineering samples, you’d hardly go to this troulble, suggesting these are at least destined for employee vehicles, if not customers.

    In the background you’ll notice another Cybertruck, and I count a total of 5 in the video. The windows are down, as they were with the staff shot of the first one produced.

    This will be the first vehicle I know of without door handles. We still need to learn more about how Tesla identifies driver/passengers and opens the door vs random strangers near the car when the driver’s phone is in proximity.

    As the camera pans back to the right, you can see the top of the frunk opened, an angle I don’t think we’ve seen before and while the shot is blurry, I think we’re pretty close to a finished product here.. the wheel arches, mirrors etc all look complete.

    1. Of course it will be smaller – the space went to the back where it has a much larger tray than the F-150.Lightning.
      Also the F-150 Lightning’s huge front makes it horribly inefficient (and thus needs a bigger battery to get decent range), whereas the Cybertruck is expected to have similar efficiency to a sedan, especially with the tonneau cover closed.
