Elon Musk: It's highly likely we'll make a smaller Cybertruck

Elon Musk says it's "highly likely" Tesla will make a smaller version of the Cybertruck for Europe.

Last year, the electric pickup's launch saw Musk admit

there is "room for improvement" after its "armoured glass" shattered in a demonstration.

But that didn't stop thousands upon thousands of people ordering the sci-fi inspired automobile, with the CEO noting that he had received 146,000 orders.

And after Musk discussed the idea of making the Cybertruck small enough to fit in a standard garage and that they had "reduced the size by -3%", he's now claimed they hope to get a smaller model out for Europe eventually.

When a Twitter follower asked: "Smaller version for Europe? Don't want Model Y. I want a Cyber Truck. Even just a smaller EU version."

Musk replied: "Highly likely down the road."

During the disastrous official unveiling of the Cybertruck at the Tesla's SpaceX rocket factory in Los Angeles, Franz von Holzhausen, the head of design, smashed the driver's window with a metal ball as part of a planned test.

And Musk admitted: "Oh my f***ing God, well, maybe that was a little too hard."

His colleague then cracked another window, and he said: "It didn't go through, so that's a plus side."

Before he added that there was "Room for improvement."

Cybertruck has received mixed reviews from critics and analysts.

Musk previously shared that the truck is inspired by the sci-fi classic 'Blade Runner', which happened to be set in November 2019, by sharing a video of the 1982 blockbuster's opening credits.

He added: "The date is strangely familiar ..."

The futurist vehicle has a range of between 400 and 500 miles from a single charge.

Cybertruck is expected to be sold from 2021.
