Sure, Elon Musk says on Twitter. “Cybertruck can have any color you want, so long as it’s nothing,” he wrote on Friday, in response to a direct question on the topic of color options. Because the body of the Cybertruck is made of cold-rolled steel, painting it would be nearly impossible. So, you can get it in a lovely shade of “nothing” (unpainted steel gray) and, as stated before, maybe wrap it at a third-party.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Musk has said before that the Cybertruck will be offered only in steel gray, just like the prototype presented in November 2019. At the same time, he once toyed with the idea of offering at least some form of color variation, by tempering the steel, which would allow for shades like burned orange and blue steel. The latter was a personal favorite with Musk, he said in July 2020.
To this, Musk added the possibility of laser-tattooing the body to increase customization options. Tesla might offer an in-house wrapping service, too, Musk said.
These plans might have gone down the drain now, as other design challenges, like that giant windshield wiper not even Musk likes, take precedence. Musk says “cold-rolled steel Dogecoin option” looks fab, but maybe don’t hold your breath for it. Any color on the Cybertruck will most likely have to come out of your pocket, after delivery.
