Tesla Inc is known for its massive delays in products. Elon Musk, CEO, Tesla showcased the futuristic Cybertruck way back in 2019. Musk gave an initial timeline of 2021 to late 2022. Now that the electric car company has failed to meet the timelines, many Tesla enthusiasts have taken the job into their own hands. This includes disgruntled Tesla enthusiasts of India who saw the ray of hope of the Tesla brand officially coming to India a few years ago and recently. While many have privately imported Tesla cars to the Indian market, this chap wanted to own the Cybertruck and he has commissioned a made-in-India model.
The Indian Cybertruck was recently spotted by Car.Crazy.India during “The Valley Run” or TVR in Aamby Valley in Maharashtra. Visitors caught someone changing the tyre of the homemade Cybertruck. The limited pictures show that the vehicle has been accurately made to mimic the Cybertruck that Tesla officially showcased back in 2019.

While the upcoming Cybertruck will be an all-electric vehicle. This one spotted in India seems to be powered by an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). The exact specifications of the engine or the vehicle remain unknown. We do hope to see more of this car on the roads.
The Indian-made Cybertruck looks quite proportionate. It is missing the front windscreen and has a layer of dust on it. But it can be passed for the real thing to many who do not care much for details. If you know more about this made-in-India Cybertruck, you can send the information over to us.
Russians made an ICE-powered Cybertruck
A YouTube channel team Garage54 made a Cybertruck in Russia in 2020. The team used an UAZ off-roader as a foundation for the project. The diesel-powered Cybertruck became quite popular on the Internet and we saw many videos of the vehicle running on snow and on the Russian roads.
There is one more Cybertruck replica from Russia. However, just like the Indian counterpart, we are not sure about the workings and mechanicals of the second Cybertruck that was spotted in Russia.
Soon after Tesla showcased the Cybertruck, a bunch of wild ideas started floating around the Internet. Keeping the base design of the Cybertruck in India, many automobiles were imagined including this autorickshaw or tuk-tuk.
Well, this rendering image was our original idea and we do hope that Elon Musk or someone else makes it a reality. We would really want to see a 1+3 seating layout with an air conditioner, air suspension, GPS system and an all-electric set-up for the smoothest rides.
Cybertruck has been at the centre of many spoofs on the Internet. Many have made videos of Tesla Cybertrucks at fuel stations, CNG pumps and whatnot. During the unveiling of the Tesla Cybertruck, a window cracked after a hammer hit the officials. He was trying to show the strength of Cybertruck’s body.
According to the latest updates, Tesla has started hiring for the Cybertruck project and the vehicle is expected to go into production by the middle of next year.
