Tesla Cybertruck Poised to Make First Public Appearance at Petersen Auto Museum

Written by Joey Klender, Teslarati


The Tesla Cybertruck will make its first public appearance at the legendary Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles from June 20 to June 26.

This marks the first time since the pickup’s unveiling event in November that the official Tesla truck will be on display, allowing both Tesla supporters and skeptics to see the vehicle firsthand.


The Cybertruck is Tesla’s first attempt at an electric pickup truck, and it has taken the automotive world’s attention by storm. The design of the machine indicates a change in the tune of the “traditional” pickup truck look, usually comprised of a rectangularly-shaped cab and a bed.


One of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s main points during the Cybertruck’s unveiling event was the fact all of the available pickup trucks on the market today are based around the same premise and design.


“Trucks have been the same for a very long time,” Musk said. “For like, 100 years, trucks have been basically the same, and we wanted to try something different.”


When a photo of Chevy, Ford and Dodge pickup trucks side by side sat behind the Tesla CEO, he indicated it was tough to decipher which vehicle was which, because all of the designs were so similar. The Cybertruck was like none of its competitors, particularly in terms of design.


After the Cybertruck’s unveiling event, Tesla’s proposed design was met with support and criticism. While many loyal Tesla and Musk supporters welcomed the idea of the truck’s futuristic and cyberpunk-inspired design, others were not enthused with veering away from a more mainstream and “normal” truck design.


Regardless of the criticisms, the Cybertruck has made its impact on automotive culture. The truck’s undisputed and undeniable popularity throughout the world has captured the attention of everyone who has heard of it.


Recently, the Cybertruck appeared on an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, where the former late-night TV show host had the exclusive privilege to drive the new, all-electric pickup through Los Angeles. Despite the $52 million in vehicles Leno owns, it was clear the Cybertruck was something special because there is simply no vehicle like it.
