We finally know what the Tesla Cybertruck interior looks like

It's still a pretty ugly truck

Tesla’s Cybertruck was announced in 2019 and originally scheduled to hit the road back in 2021, but it has faced five delays so far and might not make it into customer’s hands until 2024 at the earliest. As it should have started to roll off the production line two years ago, you would think we’d know the final design inside and out by now — but that isn’t the case. Much of the truck is still shrouded in mystery, though one of those mysteries may have just unraveled.

A video has appeared that apparently shows the interior of the truck — or one of its late prototypes, at the very least. The minute-long clip, which was recorded by YouTube user “Vlad Vein,” shows the truck’s steering wheel, infotainment system, and several portions of its interior. The clip is in Russian, but it’s fairly obvious what is being shown off. The leaker shows the camera the entry keycard, what appears to be a yoke wheel, and goes on to demonstrate a little of what the central display can do.

Between the leaker’s actions and YouTube’s translated subtitles, we’ve determined that the infotainment system has a battery indicator, a pretty good-looking maps display, and can show you information from the truck’s sensors at the same time. There’s nothing particularly surprising about the infotainment system, or what we’ve seen of it in the clip, though the display itself seems quite large — which is a major plus. Vlad then pans around the vehicle’s interior space.

It’s all a bit plain

Compared to many other vehicles in the Cybertruck’s purported price range, the interior seems a bit plain. There’s a lot of gray, every surface seems smooth, and there’s a minimalist vibe about the whole thing. The panoramic glass roof is a highlight, but beyond that, there’s nothing to write home about. Some elements of the interior are pretty angular in shape, and this fits the overall “low-polygon vehicle from a PlayStation One game” vibe of the truck. All in all, the appearance fits with what you would imagine the inside of a Cybertruck might look like.

It is worth pointing out that the clip is not something Tesla itself has released, confirmed, or even acknowledged. The Tesla truck we see in the video may not be the truck that goes into production, and at the rate Elon Musk’s EV company is handling the whole Cybertruck project, we may be looking at a completely different leak this time next year. Another leak has suggested that the truck is plagued by quality control issues, and Tesla’s billionaire owner isn’t happy about it. So who knows how much things will change by the time the much anticipated EV actually goes into production?

The end of the 2023 model production year will mark the demise of the "fun Audi," the ICE-powered, two-seater Audi TT sports car. Audi of America recently announced a limited run of just 50 2023 Audi TT Roadster Final Edition sports cars for sale in the U.S.

Audi's farewell TT build resembles the 2024 Jaguar F-Type ZP Special Edition. The limited-run Jaguar roadster and coupe references the company's historic racing success. A notable difference between the two marques is that Jaguar will switch to EVs entirely after the 2024 model year. Audi is committed to a U.S. model lineup that will be at least 30% electrified by 2025 but will continue to sell gas-powered cars, such as the Audi Q7 Prestige midsize SUV and the S5 Sportback.

Honda is selling a $995 drivable suitcase-size electric scooter we can’t tell if we love or hate
The Honda Motocompacto wants to solve last-mile e-mobility

Honda has been slower than many manufacturers to sell battery electric vehicles in the U.S., only recently announcing the 2024 Honda Prologue EV. In an interesting but somewhat bewildering twist, Honda has introduced a second vehicle to the EV arena, an electric scooter. The Honda Motocompacto is a collapsible ride-on electric scooter you can order online today for $995. The orders will be fulfilled at select Honda and Acura dealers beginning in 2024.

If you first see Honda's new e-mobility device on the street, you might wonder if someone put a motor in a folded card table. If you ride one, you'll notice that there are no pedals. Despite first appearances, the Motocompacto isn't an e-bicycle; it's an e-scooter. The foot pegs are there to give you a place to rest your feet, not to propel the scooter.

Which vehicle has the broadest appeal?
2019 Chevrolet Silverado

When it comes to the popularity of cars and trucks in America, television ads would have us believe that somehow, in some way, every car and truck seems to be the best at this or offer the most of that in its class. Advertising, however, always has a way of being not-so-subtly subjective. But the objective truth lies in pure numbers and bottom-line results. Edmunds did the dirty work for all of us and collected retail registrations across the country, much in the same way we covered the most valuable colors for used cars some time ago.

Rental sales and government purchases were not included in this auto census, so the results are proof of what cars and trucks were the most popular in the hearts and wallets of the U.S. public for 2022. The following is a list of the most popular cars and trucks in every state (and territory) in the United States. Read on to see what your state drives the most...
