Cybertruck UI gets leaked by ex-Tesla design lead



Some pretty interesting Cybertruck center touchscreen user interface visuals were leaked last week when former Tesla Head of UI Design Pawel Pietryka uploaded them on his newly founded company website.

Pawel joined Tesla as an Art Director and Designer in 2016, later on, he became the Head of UI Design and left the Silicon Valley electric automaker this year in March — after 4 years and 6 months. He must have uploaded the unseen Cybertruck UI and footage as part of his portfolio on his company website Modern Grafik Anstalt, Inc. (MGA).

But when this footage was discovered by the Tesla Community on social media, Pawel deleted these UI graphics, most probably on request of Tesla (TSLA), Inc.

The Cybertruck UI is dark-themed, contrary to the brighter UI in the Tesla Model 3, Y, S, and X. Some of the Cybertruck’s newly designed maps were also seen in the test drive videos from the unveiling back in 2019.

The design language of the Cybertruck UI also supplements the futuristic electric pickup truck’s sharp-edged design, some refer to it as origami with stainless steel. The fonts, icons, and UI elements are all in line with the futuristic Cyberpunk design theme.

These leaked UI screens look like mockup designs themselves — instead of being captured on a real Cybertruck. This Cybertruck center touchscreen UI might not be the final design that we will be able to see after production starts at Gigafactory Texas later this year.

Tesla has moved the control navigation icons to the left in a vertical setting in this new Cybertruck UI, diverging from the bottom-horizontal setting in the existing vehicles.

The following short video from these leaks shows the Tesla Cybertruck rendering on the center screen as the truck is turned on and the functions load up. Looks like a time-lapse video of the animation of screen elements but we might get a faster GPU in the Cybertruck, perhaps.

This futuristic UI layout reminds me of one of my favorite websites back in the early 2000s, the inspirational 2Advanced Studios V2. Coincidentally, 2Advanced Studios was the one who designed the first SpaceX website in 2002 — very interesting.
