Tesla Cybertruck Frunk wide open, spied in NZ Winter testing

    Tesla’s Cybertruck has been spotted with the frunk wide open for the first time. The unreleased Cybertruck is scheduled for the first deliveries in Q3 2023, while currently undergoing winter testing in New Zealand.

    Today, we see the Cybertruck as we’ve never seen before in new spy photos shared by @ggreggertruck, a Twitter account dedicated to aggregating Cyberruck news.

    While the Cyber truck has been in the public eye through its various prototypes over a number of years, we’ve never actually seen one with the frunk open.

    Tesla famously offers lots of storage up front and it seems the Cybertruck will be no different. We expected there would be a frunk space, but it was unclear exactly how this would function.

    It appears the Cybertruck will use a similar model to Ford’s F150 Lightning, which features a frunk that sees the whole front of the car open up to reveal a large storage area. For includes power outlets in the frunk and I expect Tesla to do the same.

    The photos appear to be taken during the loading or unloading of the Cybertruck into a semi-truck. While the quality isn’t great, increasing the brightness of the shadows in the photo, shows what appears to be a suitcase in the frunk.

    Fortunately for us, that camo wrap did nothing to hide the open frunk.

    Elon Musk has said the Cybertruck will have a number of surprises and I think the frunk was meant to be one of those. This week, we’ve seen a number of Cybertrucks moving around NZ and the US and the more units there are, the more chance those secrets leak.

    What isn’t clear from this photo is if the frunk will be a powered frunk, allowing opening and closing from the mobile app or touchscreen in the vehicle.

    We see from the wider shot, the gorgeous snow-capped mountains in New Zealand.
