Tesla Cybertruck is going to have to be wrapped in order to get different colours and patterns, according to a new comment from CEO Elon Musk.
When Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck last year, one of the most surprising features, aside from the design, was the fact that the frame of the vehicle is actually the body of the pickup truck.
Tesla is folding “ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless-steel” into the structure and the body of the vehicle:quote :
Not having stamped body panels offer several advantages.

However, it complicates painting the vehicle, though it’s possible. There are ways to process steel in order to give it different colours.
When Tesla launched the Cybertruck last year, the automaker only unveiled an unpainted prototype with the exposed grey metal stainless steel.
Musk suggested that Tesla could offer the electric pickup truck in different colours and even hinted at matte black, but the CEO now says that the Tesla Cybertruck is going to need to be wrapped in order to be offered in different colours:
It’s unclear if Tesla plans to offer wrapping as a factory option or through its service centres, but it sounds unlikely at this point, with Musk saying that “you will be able to wrap it.”
