People mind blown over how you change gears when driving Cybertruck

People mind blown over how you change gears when driving Cybertruck

Safe to say the Cybertruck doesn't do things in the normal way.

As Tesla Cybertrucks trickle onto the roads, we're learning more and more about how these futuristic vehicles actually work.

Now, the TikTok account Pushing Pistons - run by someone who says he's an 'engineer' who 'loves talking about cars' - is breaking down some of the more unusual features of Elon Musk's latest release.

And one of the wildest features is definitely the gears.

In normal cars and trucks, we're used to reaching down next to us to change the gears - but this is the Cybertruck, so obviously it's not done in the regular way.

As the TikToker reveals some of the truck's features, he shows that the gears are actually found in the ceiling of the car.

"Up top, you'll notice your gear selectors are actually over here so you can go from drive to neutral to reverse," he said.

People can't believe this is actually how you control the Cybertruck's gears.

"Nahhhhh bro is changing gear from the top," one TikToker commented.

It certainly seems to be dividing opinion, with another saying: "Bro that gear selector is the worst I’ve ever seen. Imagine needing to get out of a tight spot and reaching up every time."

In response to that comment, the TikToker who originally posted the video said: "For the record, you can still select the gear on the touch screen like other Teslas. This is technically a redundancy but I found it interesting to show y’all."

The gears can be found on a touchscreen above the driver.

And another joked that they can't understand why people are coming for the Cybertruck's design, commenting: "People hating what they can't afford lol."

It's not the only unusual feature shown in the video - the TikToker also shows the secret hidden button you press to pop the door open, as well as some of the more classic Tesla aspects like a massive touchscreen that controls pretty much everything in the vehicle.

Sadly, one of the coolest features of the Cybertruck isn't shown off in this video - how it can go into 'Beast Mode', with Tesla claiming it can go from 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds.

All this, but the Cybertruck will set you back a whole chunk of change - Tesla said a rear-wheel-drive version would start at an estimated $60,990 (£48,200), and the high-end 'Cyberbeast' might set you back around $99,990 (£79,000).

And if you did need any of the custom parts replaced, that also wouldn't be cheap - with one X user claiming it would cost $240 (£189) to replace the Cybertruck's single, powerful windscreen wiper.
