Tesla revealed its newest product this week by announcing the Cybertruck, a vehicle that it says has “better utility than a truck with more performance than a sports car.” People have had a lot to say about the truck since its reveal with many of the comments focusing on its edgy, cyberpunk, Blade Runner-style appearance that certainly looks like it could be a car from the future. Judging from some reactions online though, it also looks like it could’ve come from the past as a vehicle you’d find on a PlayStation 1 or Nintendo 64 game.
Elon Musk unveiled the Cybertruck during a big reveal event on Thursday with the CEO of Tesla bringing it on stage to show off its features. The site for the Cybertruck is now live and the vehicle is even able to be purchased now for only $100 down. The vehicle starts at $40,000 and has several upgrade options including one that makes it a self-driving vehicle.
Musk shared a preview of the car’s appearance on Twitter which can be seen below if you missed the initial reveal.

Whether they’re planning on actually buying one of Tesla’s Cybertrucks after production nears in late 2021, people have had plenty of comments about the vehicle. The PS1 and N64 frequently came up in these commentaries, and you can see the best of some of those comparisons below while you customize your Cybertruck.
Weirdly, I rather like the new Tesla truck. Looks like it belongs in a PS1 game though... pic.twitter.com/imfhI9MywA— Read it, Daddy! (@Readitdaddy) November 22, 2019
