It looks like Tesla’s Cybertruck could be one step closer to production, after a video was released showing it being tested at Tesla’s factory in Fremont, California. 

The nearly seven-minute footage, shot by a drone above the facility, shows the Cybertruck driving back and forth on a track outside the factory.

The Cybertruck was also spotted on public roads near the Fremont factory.

There’s been widespread anticipation for Tesla’s electric pickup truck initially announced in 2019. Tesla originally expected production to begin in 2021, then pushed it to 2022 before announcing it would be this year. 

Tesla has confirmed the Cybertruck will be built at its Gigafactory in Texas. Specifications on the company’s website say it will be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, will have a range of up to 500 miles, a payload capacity of 2,500 pounds and will include 100 cubic feet of exterior, lockable storage and have a towing capacity of more than 14,000 pounds. 
Last June, Tesla confirmed it will be using the world’s largest casting machine, known as Giga Press, for Cybertruck production.
