Tesla Cybertruck spotted: is it the new design or the original prototype?

Two new videos have surfaced showing the Tesla Cybertruck moving slowly through a parking lot. Both videos are very short and not very high quality, but the speculation is this could be a different design than the first prototype.

The videos were first posted to the Cybertruck Owners Club forum on Sunday. The user who posted the video provided no details on when or where they were taken, but based on the background it appears as though Fremont could be the location.

In the first video the Cybertruck is seen from a distance so we can’t make out much in this one other than the already familiar CGI-in-real-life look of the truck.

It is in the second video where we get a closer look that reveals this could be the new design. Elon Musk has provided few details on the new design, but one piece of information he has released it that it will have no door handles.

The video appears to have been taken from an iPhone live photo, and the quality is poor, but it does look like there are no door handles. It also has no side mirrors like the original prototype, something which is still not allowed in North America which raises questions as to whether this is indeed the final design.

Here is a zoomed-in look at the front and rear doors on the Cybertruck.

Some users in the forum speculate this Cybertruck could be on its way to Texas where it will be unveiled at the Annual Shareholders Meeting at Giga Texas next month. The first video does have a caption which says “Bye bye” with a teary-eyed emoji, indicating the Cybertruck could have been taking its first drive and leaving its location for the first time.

What do you think, is this the new design of the Cybertruck? Let us know in the comments below.
