We all know that the electric pickup is extremely popular in the United States, but it is no different in Europe. Unfortunately, we don't have good news for its European fans.
Experts from TÜV, one of the most well-known and valued institutes in the Old Continent dealing with security control and product certification, spare no bitter words to the Cybertruck project. Germany analyzed the design of the electric monster from Tesla and found that it practically does not meet any of the accepted European safety standards.
"The front of the vehicle must be made of materials that are flexible. In meeting with pedestrians, they are to absorb all the impact energy and, thus, limit the occurrence of injury to people. Meanwhile, the Tesla pickup is all made of armored steel, "said Stefan Teller, an expert from TÜV.
Everything indicates that if Elon Musk and his team do not change many things in Cybertruck until it begins production, it will not be allowed to traffic in European Union countries. Experts very negatively referred to the very angular shape of the vehicle, as well as too large wheels and lack of wipers. Passers-by in a meeting with such a powerful vehicle, with such a massive front, have virtually no chance.
New vehicles produced in Europe must meet increasingly high safety standards. It is currently the highest priority for EU authorities. There should be as few people as possible on the roads. Therefore, German specialists believe that in this form Cybertruck will not be on the road, unless Tesla modifies it very strongly, which is unlikely, because the vehicle will lose a lot in its appearance.
Well, it was our dream to see and test the Cybertruck for you all. However, now we must fly to the USA for test-drive on the roads.
We believe that Elon Musk will listen to these suggestions from TÜV and implement changes on the vehicles. He cannot skip the European market.
