Tesla Cybertruck units are rolling off production lines at Gigafactory Texas and have been for months, but the prototype seen in Palo Alto, California today wrapped in camo seems to indicate one thing: the all-electric pickup is undoubtedly close.
In the past six months, Tesla Cybertruck sightings have been more and more frequent as the automaker continues to work toward initial production nearly four years after unveiling the car in November 2019.
We’ve seen Tesla test numerous looks, some more rugged than others, and some units have even been equipped with rumored features like the single wiper blade, but that doesn’t appear to be a finalized part of the Cybertruck.
Today, a camo-wrapped Cybertruck made it to public testing on roads in Palo Alto, and the camo seems to show the vehicle is close to production for customers.

Tesla is definitely moving closer to production and deliveries, as last week the company reportedly told suppliers that it plans to build 375,000 units every year, and initial release candidates could be ready by August.
We already know the design of the Cybertruck has been finalized, but we do not know if we’ve actually seen it on the road.
