Tesla Cybertruck is an unusual pickup truck. In addition to having incredible characteristics, it also has a unique design. Cybertruck is built with an exterior shell made for ultimate durability and passenger protection. Starting with a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton, every component is designed for superior strength and endurance, from its ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless-steel structural skin to Tesla “armor glass.” But like with its other vehicles, Tesla continues to improve the Cybertruck: The alloy from which it will be produced will be different from the one from which it was made for presentation.

So, why is stainless-steel a good choice?

  1. it has special properties that make it durable, corrosion, scratch, and dent resistant.
  2. this material is ideally suited to be subsequently recycled.

This is why stainless-steel is used by SpaceX to make the hull of Starship, the spacecraft that will take people to Mars.

Nevertheless, SpaceX always strives for excellence, so the company periodically changes the composition of the alloy in order to endow this material with even better characteristics. “We’re rapidly changing alloy constituents & forming methods,” said Tesla / SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

SpaceX is not alone when it comes to constant striving for improvement. Tesla products are also undergoing improvement all the time. Musk confirmed that just as the alloy used to make Starship is constantly improving and changing, the alloy used to make Cybertruck will also be different from the one it was originally made from.

This approach of the company is extremely important. If there is an opportunity to improve its products, then Tesla does it. The new alloy will surely have improved characteristics that will make Cybertruck even more amazing.
