When Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck in November 2019, they expected mixed reactions. It has been described as anything from polarizing to ugly. It’s very unlikely any other major automotive manufacturer would have been daring enough to build something so different. One thing is for sure, it is definitely grabbing attention. It’s also inspiring some fabricators to build their own version of the Cybertruck!
There’s a few DIY Cybertrucks that have been popping up, including this one. Here’s one posted by MakerBeta who hand-built this custom rig. This build started from a scrapped Jinbei van. As stated in the video, it was built from fairly thick 3mm steel to help ensure structural rigidity.
It will be interesting to see how other automotive manufacturers might respond. They’ve almost certainly had internal meetings to discuss the design, functionally, and other features.
