Tesla CEO Elon Musk provided a quick explanation as to why the Cybertruck requires an 8,000-ton Giga Press. While addressing questions from the audience at Giga Berlin’s Country Fair, Musk hinted that the Cybertruck would require an extremely large rear cast since it would be supporting the vehicle’s 6.5-foot bed.
“Cybertruck will actually have an even bigger casting because of the truck bed. It’s going to have probably an 8,000-ton press or something like that. It’s pretty wild,” Musk said, referring to the upcoming all-electric pickup truck.
