The Tesla Cybertruck design update has been spotted in the new or updated prototype

A new video of the Tesla Cybertruck has appeared on the Internet, showing some significant changes in its design.

Tesla updated the Cybertruck’s production status from “Development” to “Tooling” during the company’s Q3 2022 update last month.

In a new video that can be seen above, the most obvious change Tesla has made to the Cybertruck is the electric truck’s tail lights. While the car is waiting, a new style of brake lights that weren’t there before can be seen.

On previous Cybertruck models, the backlight setup was just a red light slot through the tailgate. The width of the illumination area (black strip) has also been increased to accommodate the additional side brake lights.

We can also see (in the first half of this video above) that Tesla added reverse lights on either side of the Cybertruck’s license plate. Moreover, we can see that Tesla added two red reflectors at the bottom of the tailgate.

We can also see potential mounting hardware for the front and rear bull bars on this prototype. Tesla will likely offer optional bull and winch features for owners who want a tougher off-road style.

Two new hooded Cybertruck projectiles were spotted in Giga Texas just a few weeks ago, as did local spotter Joe Tegtmeyer with his drone.

Now that the Cybertruck is in the tooling stage, these body casings will likely be brought to Giga Texas to calibrate the robot to begin preparing for a production line build. Tesla has estimated that mass production of the Cybertruck will begin late next year.
