Tesla Cybertruck automatic tailgate, covered bed storage pop up in latest video leak — raise questions about waterproofing and capacity ↺
As the Tesla Cybertruck's scheduled November 30 delivery event draws ever-closer, the spy shots and in-the-wild videos continue to pile up, occasionally dropping clues about what to expect from the embattled electric pickup truck. Less than a month before the event, a video was posted by @DimaZenuik on X (fka Twitter) showing off the Cybertruck's under-bed covered storage.
Much like the early sneak peeks we got at the EVs frunk, the video doesn't give much of an indication of what the inside of the storage compartment looks like in terms of storage volume. We do, however, seemingly get confirmation that the Cybertruck's tailgate will be automatically-lowering, even if the storage compartment doesn't appear to be.
The sub-bed trunk lid looks to take up about a third of the surface area of the truck's sizeable bed, but the size of the weather sealing around the inside of the lid indicates that the actual volume is likely not as impressive. That weather sealing raised questions among fans, especially given the complaints that came from Rivian owners about moisture and dirt ingress into the under-bed storage.
The vault appears to be housing one of the infamous covers the Cybertruck has been known to use when parked at Tesla's Gigafactory or out on tests, perhaps indicating that it is at least somewhat substantial.
Elon Musk has said that the Cybertruck will start being delivered to customers by November 30, 2023, while production is expected to ramp to over 200,000 units per year.
