A leaked video of inside Tesla’s Texas Gigafactory has shown how much space is on offer in the frunk of the long-awaited Cybertruck electric pickup.

    A few of the pre-production Cybertruck models in the video uploaded to Twitter have their frunk lids open which gives us our first proper look at how much storage space is on offer up front.

    We’ve previously seen plenty of Cybertrucks with their frunk lids open but they didn’t have an inner lining installed.

    Based on the video it appears the Cybertruck doesn’t offer as much frunk storage as the likes of the Ford F-150 Lighting, Chevrolet Silverado EV, GMC Hummer EV, and Rivian R1T.

    At this stage we don’t have an exact litreage or capacity figure for the Cybertruck’s frunk.

    Despite appearing to have a smaller frunk space, the Cybertruck is understood to compensate this with a larger tub area.

    The Cybertruck’s tub is expected to measure around 6.5 feet (~2.0 metres) long, whereas the similarly sized F-150 Lightning’s tub only measures 1.7 metres long.

    The wild-looking Tesla Cybertruck was first revealed in concept form in 2019 and has repeatedly been delayed since then. The latest word from Tesla is it’s on track to enter production later this year, with mass production beginning during 2024.

    CEO Elon Musk recently told investors a “hand over” for the first deliveries is planned for the third quarter of 2023.

    It’s expected the brand will confirm final pricing and specifications closer to that date.

    Tesla has reportedly experienced difficulties during development of its first electric pickup.

    A report dating back to January 2022 exposed flaws in an ‘alpha’ Cybertruck prototype including handling issues, high noise levels, as well as suspension and braking flaws.

    Since then, the brand has been spied numerous times testing the Cybertruck around the United States, including wind tunnel testing and road testing.

    A Cybertruck prototype was also recently spied disembarking a plane in New Zealand, likely on its way to complete winter testing at the Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground on the South Island, used by many carmakers.
