The whole of social media also went into a frenzy as Tesla’s Cybertruck became a top trend. The design of the Cybertruck also impressed many. Its immaculate look is very similar to an armored truck. It features an ultra-hard 30Xcold-rolled stainless-steel body and armored glass. The vehicle comes with an adaptive air suspension that can be raised and lowered four inches in either direction.
