Tesla silences critics with Cybertruck’s immaculate build quality and perfect panel gaps, delivers it to more showrooms before Black Friday

With each passing day, we are getting closer to the most hyped and anticipated automotive event of the year — the Cybertruck Delivery Event. As the coveted event becomes nearer, Tesla (TSLA) is showing off its unconventionally-designed electric pickup truck.

Last week Tesla put the Cybertruck on public display outside the venue of the 30th Annual Baron Investment Conference in Lincoln Center, New York. This was a smart move by Tesla to let affluent buyers take a first-hand physical look at the Cybertruck. And it attracted crowds of people with polarizing views about the vehicle.

At this location in NYC, a Tesla enthusiast, photographer and YouTuber got a chance to film the Cybertruck in an astounding 8K resolution. This 8K walkaround video of the Cybertruck shows its exterior’s finesse in superior detail (watch below).

Tesla has been a target of criticism over build quality issues in its early production vehicles in the past. Panel gaps between the body panels of Tesla vehicles have been lambasted by critics of the company. Tesla panel gaps have also been a point of humor and memes inside the Tesla Community both online and off.

But this time Tesla is not going to give a chance to critics to raise their fingers on the build quality of the Cybertruck. Looking at the pictures and videos of the latest Cybertrucks, especially this 8K video, Tesla has done a marvelous job in improving the fit and finish of early VIN Cybertrucks.

The one we saw at the San Diego-UTC Tesla showroom earlier this week had the same perfect build quality and fit and finish. Interestingly Tesla confirmed some of the Cybertruck specifications through showroom staff and official banners raised at the stores.

Experienced Tesla owners even used to wait until a few thousand VINs to order their vehicle when a new Tesla vehicle was launched. Starting from the Cybertruck revolution, it might not be the case in the future. Tesla has gained a significant amount of production experience and with the continuous improvement methodology, it’s ready to dazzle the auto industry.

In addition to the San Diego Tesla Store, the automaker has accelerated delivering the Cybertruck deliveries to other showrooms across the country. The priority seems to be California, as the San Jose-Santana Row showroom is the 2nd Tesla Store to receive its Cybertruck.

According to Tesla staff, these are customer delivery Cybetrucks. Tesla is holding deliveries of these trucks to use as display trucks until the Delivery Event concludes on 30th November.

Influencer/YouTuber Tesla Raj personally visited the Tesla Santana Row showroom for a first-hand look at the Cybertruck. “The model [Cybertruck] right here was immaculate,” Raj said. “Every panel was aligned perfectly, all the corners were rounded, I am more excited about my Cybertruck than I was ever before because this looks absolutely beautiful,” he added to his statement.

Tesla Cybertrucks are produced at the automaker’s Gigafactory in Austin, TX. But the problem is Tesla cannot open its stores in the Lone Star State because of the direct sales ban and Tesla does not sell its vehicles with a dealership sales model.

According to the Cybertruck showroom tracker at AbetterTheater.com, 9 Tesla Stores have the Cybertruck on display already.

Putting Cybertrucks on display in Tesla Stores just before Black Friday is a great marketing strategy by the automaker to attract as much physical audience as possible. This will result in increased awareness about the Cybertruck as well as help with new orders.

  1. A good looking prototype or two (out of many more that looked like utter trash) is not going to “silence” anyone, no matter how hard you wish or try for it to happen.

  2. So a Tesla fanboi (picked for his love of all things Tesla), looks at a hand built Cybertruck and pronounces it to be perfect.

    Given this and the fact the commentator has zero QC qualifications, what could possibly go wrong ??

      • M8 no offense, but until the cars get to the customers you can’t really judge the quality, yes production has began but that doesn’t mean this are production standard… Could they be exactly like this one? Yes they can and hopefully will, but you can’t just say “this is the final product” before the final product actually gets to customers

  3. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I’m sure many children will be impressed. No adult I know of would be caught dead in that thing. Also one of the main complaints has not and will not be addressed and that’s the abysmal views from the driver’s seat. Can they make that A pillar any more obstructive? Tiny side windows to boot. The only people that will ever buy this are fanboys with either too much money or too much room on their credit line.

  4. It looks like a child’s creation (as it was) and if I showed up at a worksite with this I would be mercilessly berated or worse. As for range, I’ve been dealing with electric vehicles of one sort or another for 20 years. The common denominator is the advertised range is usually close to 200% exaggerated. If they say it will go 300 miles then expect 100 if you are lucky. Probably much less than that. I’m actually all for electric vehicles but only a small short range grocery getters. Range and price are not competitive for the masses. Only when battery capacity increases by several factors will the concept be viable.

  5. Truck is still awful, even after trying to clean up their act. And Tesla fans are the absolute worst, empty headed people to have a discussion with.

  6. As someone who works for a consumer product company that builds vehicles, build quality for display vehicles is a joke. We build ours on the assembly line as well. Then, we go over them 100%, and fix everything that is even remotely off with them.

    If you think for a minute that Tesla isn’t doing the same thing, you’re living in fantasy land. These may not be hand built “trucks”, but they are hand picked for “excellence” for sure.

    Let’s have a bigger conversation when there are 1,000 of them out there, IN REAL CUSTOMERS HANDS.

  7. Exactly. This thing is just hideous to the nth degree. The fanboys will think the crowds of screaming people are all adoring them when in reality we are splitting our sides in laughter at how horrible its is and their stupidity.

  8. It’s not that good looking though, and all those sharp edges will hit people in a collision 💥 like a chisel edge, have no idea how it was approved

  9. Makes ford and Chevy look like the weakest sauce ever made. Like a rock or tough ? 😂. Try bullet proof engineering by a true genius. No competition.

  10. M8 no offense, but until the cars get to the customers you can’t really judge the quality, yes production has began but that doesn’t mean this are production standard… Could they be exactly like this one? Yes they can and hopefully will, but you can’t just say “this is the final product” before the final product actually gets to customers

  11. Imagine being excited that a car doesn’t have panel gaps.

    Like just take a step back and look at what that says about your expectations that utterly basic build quality is something to be wildly happy about.

    Ignoring the reliability, QC, range concerns and terrible usability of this product I’m really not sure who wants to drive around in a badly built overpriced MAGA hat now

  12. That could mean that they miraculously jumped ahead of the pack on fitment, or it could mean that Tesla hand picked half a dozen of the best looking ones to put in showrooms. This isn’t a critic silencing change. They still put out a lot of really bad work for months and months just recently.

  13. Hahahahaha.
    This is satire right?

    “Tesla silences critics with Cybertruck’s immaculate build quality and perfect panel gaps”

    On a display pre production example. Tesla can’t even put a vinal wrap on a car without gaps while charging twice the standard rate.

    This is almost as dumb as claiming Ford solved the emissions problem because they had a concept for nuclear powered cars in 1957.

  14. So a vehicle set to be on display at a specific event comes out polished with perfect panel gaps? You don’t say.
    This is supposed to silence critics?
    If anything this is going to make their situation worse. None of the production vehicles are shown being polished. If there is even one truck with anything but perfect gaps, Tesla will be called out for it. The more that aren’t perfect, the more they will be called out for pulling the rug out from the consumer.

  15. All the Tesla haters are out in number. 😄 Almost as if it’s a campaign attempting to slow Tesla. 🤣🤣🤣
    Tesla is known for their excellent build quality. Toyota called the Tesla they tore down a work of art. A few ridiculous negative comments are just going to look stupid in a year or so. 😁
    Did you guys get a memo from the Tesla haters fan club to quickly post negativity. LMAO Smells like fear to me.
