As if the pending Tesla Cybertruck hasn’t received enough attention, leave it to company owner Elon Musk to generate more attention for the futuristic-looking machine.
After announcing the electric-vehicle manufacturer’s plans to build a new factory in Austin, Texas, Musk hinted at a few of his new truck’s color choices. The possible options are as unique as the car.
Musk suggested a pure white option or a treatment to offer a rainbow option.
If the Cybertruck in rainbow adornment is ever offered, it will likely be an aftermarket option, not a dealership choice.
And it wouldn’t the first rainbow-colored Tesla. Several models have received rainbow wraps in Tesla’s support of various events.

The rainbow option has also been presented on other supercars in recent years. But there wouldn’t be any more polarizing vehicle on the road than a multi-colored Tesla Cybertruck.
Musk doesn’t do subtle well. So, while the rainbow the idea doesn’t seem shocking for the Tesla Cybertruck, it still won’t present the innovative new vehicle at its best.
The new truck its described as “an all-electric, battery-powered, light commercial vehicle.” Three models have been announced, with range estimates of 250–500 miles and an estimated 0–60 mph time of 2.9–6.5 seconds, depending on the model.
According to Tesla specs, the Cybertruck will be constructed “with cold-pressed, unpainted stainless steel.” It will have a towing capacity of as much as 14,000 pounds.
