Joe Rogan released a new interview with Tesla CEO Elon Musk this morning. At more than 3 hours long, the pair covered a number of topics, one of them being the Tesla Cybertruck.

Last year Musk said he was revisiting the design of the futuristic looking truck after feedback that it might be too big to fit in the average garage. After discussing with his team of designers, Musk said they had reduced the overall size by about 3%.

That design change was short lived, with Musk saying just one month later he had reverted to the original design.

Based on the CEO’s latest comments in today’s interview, he has gone back again on his decision and made the Cybertruck about 3% smaller.

“That’s pretty much what it will look like [while looking at images of the Cybertruck], with very small differences. You know, we adjusted the size a few percent. Like around 3% or smaller.”

One of the reasons he cited for the change was that it was too big for The Boring Company tunnels. Despite driving the Cybertruck through the company’s test tunnel in Hawthorne with Jay Leno last year, it was little too close for comfort.

Tesla fans are still eagerly awaiting images of the finalized design of the Cybertruck. Musk did say he would release some in December 2020, but that date has come and gone with no images released.

If you have 3h24m to spare, you can listen to the full interview here.
