How big is the Tesla Cybertruck’s bed actually?
There are only two weeks left until the first Cybertrucks are officially delivered (supposedly), and somehow we still have a lot of questions. On this week’s episode of “What the Hell Is Going On?” We have bed size.
Thanks to an anonymous Facebook post that made it to X, we see a Cybertruck driver having to bend a mountain bike over the electric vehicle’s tailgate to fit it.
Big bike or small bed?
Look, the Cybertruck has been going through a rough patch, but before you declare the bed small, there are a few things to keep in mind.
There is a possibility that this mountain bike model will be incredibly long and this storage option is the best way to transport these types of bikes. To back this up, here are some other spy shots of the Cybertruck fitting a complete bike.
On the other hand, if the Cybertruck’s bed had to be trimmed down for its production model, it wouldn’t be the first time we’d be disappointed. A couple of months ago, we got a clear look at a truck bed that was supposed to show off ambient lighting strips around the edge of the bed. Aside from the lights, the main idea was that the edges slope inward, unnecessarily reducing the usable volume. This design was a major shift from early prototypes that featured straight sides that likely equated to more storage space.
Side-by-side comparison with the Rivian R1T 4.5-foot truck bed InsideEVs It might suggest (at least to the naked eye) that the Cybertruck struggles with truck bed size, but it’s hard to know for sure. All of this, of course, could be easily remedied if Tesla released an official spec sheet.
The fact that we need to be skeptical in the first place is a symptom of the bumpy road the Cybertruck is on toward production — a road filled with a lot of promises and ultimately many compromises.
Show us the damn specs
Since we have to take Tesla’s word for it, it’s the Cybertruck He should It comes with a six-foot-tall truck, as mentioned in the second-quarter earnings report released in July. That would outperform all-electric pickup trucks on the market, including the Ford F-150 Lightning’s 5.5-foot truck bed and the smaller bed of the Rivian R1T.
We don’t have to wait long to find out the exact dimensions of the Cybertruck and which mountain bikes it can actually fit on. Maybe that will be through a better-late-than-never spec sheet from Tesla in the coming weeks or by actually having to measure the first few delivered models. But you think it would be helpful to know this information before purchasing a Cybertruck. Unfortunately, speculation continues.
