The Tesla Cybertruck reveal is about to kick off in Los Angeles, California. A bunch of fancy people have gathered at the Tesla Design Center to see the company's take on the pickup truck. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been hyping this truck for nearly six years, and tonight is the night. Here's how to watch the Tesla Cybertruck livestream reveal. Please take a look.

Tesla Cybertruck livestream time 

Tesla will be starting the livestream at 8:00 PM PT. That is 11:00 PM on the East Coast of the United States. The event is being held in Los Angeles, so 8:00 PM isn't that crazy of a start time as the company tends to keep these short.

How to watch the Tesla Cybertruck reveal livestream

Tesla just tweeted out where they will be streaming the event, but they have historically also used their official YouTube channel as well as their website.  Head to livestream.tesla.com to sign up to watch the Cybertruck reveal. It is also a good idea to keep an eye on the official Tesla Twitter account as well as Elon Musk's Twitter Page for all the latest updates live from the event at the Tesla Design Center.

Shacknews will also be livestreaming our reactions to the Tesla Cybertruck reveal on our Twitch channel.

Are you ready to check out what Elon Musk and his brother Kimbal have been jibber jabbering about for years? Do you think the Tesla Cybertruck is all hat and no cattle? Is the Ford F-150 pickup truck doomed like Nintendo?

Let us know in the Shacknews Chatty comment section below and be sure tune in at 8:00 PM PT/11:00 PM ET to find out all about the price, specs, pre-order information, and release date of Tesla Cybertruck. If you fall asleep before the stream starts, we'll have you covered with all of the news as it breaks from the event.

      So is the the official stream thread, or is it the OTHER ONE GODDAMMIT ASIF-TWOTHREADS!

      Anyway I'm super interested to see what's up, I'm saving for a truck because it will make work so much easier and have been planning on an F150 SuperCrew, but also want to see what the options are with this. Hopefully it's not basically a Tesla Avalanche.

                It looks like you could roll up that cover and leave it that way. Maybe it covers a glass roof or something though.

                Honestly, for the way many many people will use this thing, having the bed be a huge lockable trunk will totally work. Like if I got one of these, it would basically be a family SUV.

                  It looks like you can leave the back open if you want. Not sure if the cover rolls up or has to be detached...thinking the latter.

                    November 21, 2019 9:14 PM

                    In the demo the cover retracted like it was motorized. But if it’s a flat sheet, it would block the roof if not the rear window.

                    It would make sense for it to be fully removable.

            Yeah, that’s a bigger car with a bigger battery and fancy suspension for the same price as a base model 3?

            Like I said elsewhere, they are clearly making some assumptions about driving down battery costs. Either that or the low prices are a publicity stunt and they won’t honor them.

        • reply
          November 21, 2019 8:43 PM

          I can see them doing another Model 3 where the base price is $39,900 but the upgraded interior is $5k more and then won't sell the base interior until 2 years after it's out.

          • reply
            November 21, 2019 9:05 PM

            Yeah, the $40K version could easily be a 2024 car if they make it last and there are any delays.

        The top of the line Tesla truck is $70k, goes 500 miles, tows 14k, goes 0-60 in 2.9 seconds.

          Yeah, people spend $60-70K on pickups every day. And now they’ll offer a 500 mile electric one with super car speed for that price? If I needed a truck I’d sure be looking at it.

      Looks like it took design queues from the B-2 stealth bomber. Seemed way over the top at first glance, but as the stream went on I was starting to dig it. You do you Tesla.

      • reply
        November 21, 2019 8:38 PM

        Same. At first glance I thought it was clearly a joke(both because it seemed ridiculous and because their cars are so smooth and curvy). By the end of the stream, I could see a lot of people buying the thing. The stainless body and the angular stealth/lambo styling cues might actually work.

      • reply
        November 21, 2019 8:41 PM

        Yea I don't know.

        My first reaction was that it looks ridiculous. Twenty minutes later I still think it looks ridiculous, but maybe a little less so.

        I just have a hard time seeing Eastern NC rednecks buying this thing. I guess it's a good thing that Ford is working on an electric F150, because we really need to start getting the general public in electric vehicles as soon as we can.

          yeah, I don't see how anyone could look at that truck and think, "That looks like all the curved edges of the B-2!" Definitely more F-117

      A nice departure from the S/X/3 look. In typical Elon fashion he didn't mention when they'd be available. Autopilot is another $7k which makes the prices not as great. The 500 mile range version will be needed for anyone towing a large trailer for any amount of distance.

        It will be nearly twice the price to get all the features everyone wants, even after discounts, and people will still talk like it's a $40k car. Like the 3.

        November 21, 2019 8:56 PM

        They must be making some aggressive assumptions on battery costs for ALL the prices they put out there.

        Just think of how big the packs will be. Maybe 85, 100, 150-170 kwh?

        A super aerodynamic model S gets well under 400 miles from 100kwh, and that’s a more expensive car.

      November 21, 2019 10:06 PM

      Is this the first steel car since the delorean? I like the design, but I'd wager that it's 90 percent due to material and function, not aesthetics. It makes sense to me that a load bearing chassis would have a shape that can bear a load. Price and performance seem impressive enough that the trade off of it being an odd looking thing seem worth it. I'm tempted.

      I tell you what. As an F-150 driver, it’s hard not to be impressed by those performance numbers at that stated priced range. But at the end of the day I also want my truck to look cool.

      This thing looks like my son drew it.

        That’s the big battle Tesla will have since they’ll need to get normal rural truck drivers. Cool and or manly looking trucks rule the day let’s face it. Performance looks fantastic but that design is pretty much immediately going to make it more difficult for them to sell.

          I don't know. That's a lot of flat surfaces for MAGA stickers and at least a few spots to hang truck nuts.

            Zero chance MAGA bros buy these. They hate Tesla’s and Priuses, etc. Heck, just the other day I saw a Ram with a decal that read “Prius repellant” and had an arrow pointing to its tailpipe.

              Maybe there will be a "rollin' coal" package that deploys colored vapor.

              And Tesla will have a problem then because Tesla needs those people to eventually be buying these, maybe nit immediately but that’s the target market they need to hit.

      It's the kind of design that gets people talking. Having said that, I sure wouldn't want to hit my head on that granite countertop.

      Interested. Tesla couldn’t really sell the typical rugged Americana truck image, that’s not their brand at all. So I’m glad they went with a completely different design instead of something watered down and car like. It looks like an earth version of a mars truck.

      Did they make it that fucking weird on purpose to drive demand down, since they don't seem to be able to keep up?

        I think Elon has enough fuck-you money hat if he wants a truck, this is what it’s going to look like and everyone else will just make Mustang SUVs.

      The design absolutely sucks. I'm not a fan of how pickup trucks look currently, so I'm certainly open to something new, but this ain't it.

      I'm hoping they'll iterate significantly on this initial design.

      Model 3 sidejack:

      Tesla updated their page today to state that orders made today will be delivered by end of year (to make the fed tax rebate cutoff). So that's good news.
