Tesla has shown off a new Cybertruck prototype fitted with an additional structure on top of an electric pickup truck’s open trunk.
This Cybertruck was unveiled at the groundbreaking ceremony for Tesla’s new lithium processing plant. On the side of this structure are two shovels, which were removed during the presentation and used during the ceremony.
The upper part of the structure is horizontal, it can be used to transport some bulky goods that would not otherwise fit in the open trunk of a pickup truck.
Many Tesla enthusiasts have been interested in this extra trunk, but Tesla Senior Vice President of Powertrain and Energy Drew Baglino said he doesn’t know if the trunk will end up being offered to customers. He acknowledged that the automaker is working on a line of accessories for the Cybertruck, as pickup truck owners traditionally want to add accessories to their vehicles.
Interestingly, the same Tesla Cybertruck that attended the groundbreaking ceremony got stuck off-road shortly after the event. Witnesses confirm that a Ford F-series pickup had to be brought in to tow it.
