Elon Musk's 'Cybertruck' division in trouble, leaked documents say

 June 10, 2023

It goes without saying that Elon Musk's mind is a game-changer for our civilization, but he's no stranger to trouble and potential failure. 

According to Breitbart, while Tesla is leading the charge in electric vehicle technology, leaked documents reported revealed that his Cybertruck division faces serious trouble.

The Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated Tesla releases, especially among Tesla enthusiasts.

But the documents indicated the "critical design flaws" could mean delays and utter failure if not addressed and remedied.

What did the docs say?

The documents, reported by Wired, indicated that Musk's Cybertruck faces a number of automotive engineering issues, with some surprised that Musk and his available resources have not figured it out yet.

"My first reaction is I am astounded. These are classic mechanical automotive engineering challenges that you have in pretty much any vehicle. I’m blown away that they would be struggling so much with the basics," an anonymous automotive engineer told the outlet.

Breitbart noted:

The report highlights issues with the vehicle’s suspension, body sealing, noise levels, handling, and braking. It offers a rare look into the development process of the electric pickup truck. Although these problems are not insurmountable, they do cast doubt on the vehicle’s suitability for mass production.

Due to the unique design of the futuristic-looking truck, new problems have raised that many believe could pose a serious dilemma as far as mass production is concerned.

Breitbart added:

The material is difficult to weld and does not bend easily, which could be dangerous in the event of an accident. Furthermore, it might be challenging to comply with pedestrian protection regulations in some markets due to the vehicle’s sharp edges.

Social media reacts

Musk received mixed reactions across social media, with some saying the Cybertruck will be worth the wait, and others slamming the truck altogether.

"No surprise there. Tesla keeps trying to reinvent the wheel (badly)," one Twitter user wrote.

Another Twitter user added: "Is there such thing as an 'alpha' version without issues? That's what you expect when something is labeled 'alpha'. This seems like super biased reporting which is what I now expect from Wired."

Only time will tell if the Cybertruck ever makes it to the mass assembly line, but it looks like technology might have to evolve a bit more before they reach that point.
