Video: Here's why Tesla CyberTruck looks ugly

There is much more to this design that it meets the eye

1y ago

The divisive Tesla Cybertruck started an avalanche of opinions when it was first unveiled. No other car was so strongly loved and hated at the same time, and it was all because of its design. Some call it ugly, while others think it's the coolest car Tesla has ever made.

So what's up with that Tesla truck design? Couldn't it have looked any different? Well... not really. And in this video, I explain exactly why.

  • In my opinion, it's ugly because it's useless. If I don't see the point of something, I can not find it attractive. And there is nothing that the Cybertruck excels at over any other vehicle

    • Too many electric cars got made this year and Tesla didn't release anything this year so naturally he needed attention. Any reasonable person knows there's no way that abomination sees light of day.

  • Great video!

    Also, thanks for talking about Brutalism - it's my favourite architectural style so I love when people mention it. 👏

  • Oh I get what you're saying is probably true- the marketing aspect of design, timing & such. But even though my favorite truck is an F-150 (& I've owned a string of them going back to 1970) & even though my fav of them was a very minimalistic 4x4 with mud tires to get around on construction sites I worked on & was completely Unstoppable. It was a big dented ugly red thing. And I loved it. But the Tesla is just TOO frikkin ugly to be seen in and while that body may not dent easily it'll scratch readily & look like hell in no time.

    • I don't think usual truck owners will go for Tesla. At least not for the first generation. Only after it is proven to bring more to the table than it can be ignored, then you and others might consider it.

      So how is it for? People who don't care...

    • Yeah there's always going to be a group of people that will buy what's trending even if it's not very good because that's their nature. After all that is why they do make Fords AND Chevys, lol.

  • The Cybertruck is avantgarde. The only way to drive in the future. Do you really thing future is becoming soft and cuddly? I don't. I love it and I want one and I will have one.
