Tesla Cybertruck’s Rear-Wheel Steering Feature: A Game Changer in Maneuverability

Spotlight on Cybertruck’s Enhanced Agility: Videos Reveal Revolutionary Steering Capabilities

The Tesla Cybertruck has generated a lot of discussion in recent weeks, as pre-production versions of the electric pickup have been spotted several times in the wild ahead of its official release.

One sighting this week showed the Cybertruck’s impressive turn radius with the use of rear-wheel-steering as the vehicle turns around at an event.

Rear-wheel steering, or four-wheel steering, is the ability to steer the rear axle, generally to a smaller degree than the front wheel, and to create a tighter and more precise turning radius. This feature is quickly becoming a must-have for electric pickup trucks coming to market​​.

Last year, we saw a quick video of the Cybertruck showcasing the feature for a second, but now we have a much better look, thanks to X/Twitter user Bearded Tesla. They posted a much longer video of the Cybertruck that more clearly featured the four-wheel steering capability​​.

In the video, we can see the rear wheels actively turning, which confirms the rear-wheel steering on the electric pickup truck.

Perhaps few other models have garnered so much speculative attention as the Tesla Cybertruck since it was announced in 2019.

Featuring sci-fi styling, a stainless steel body, an all-electric powertrain, and the desirability of being Tesla’s first foray into the truck market, the Cybertruck is easily among the most anticipated models to enter production.

After several delays, the Cybertruck is expected to finally become a reality this year, and as that moment inches closer, we are learning more about this EV pickup and getting to see some of its features in action​​.

Tesla has officially announced that the highly anticipated Cybertruck will begin its first deliveries on November 30, 2023.

This update was revealed in Tesla’s Q3 2023 quarterly results, marking a significant milestone for the company and its followers.

The Cybertruck, with its unique, futuristic design, has generated considerable interest since its initial reveal. This electric pickup truck represents a significant leap in automotive technology, combining the versatility of a truck with the environmentally friendly aspect of electric vehicles.

The launch is eagerly awaited not only by potential customers but also by industry observers keen to see how Tesla’s latest innovation that included rear wheel-steering, will impact the evolving landscape of electric vehicles​.
