This is the moment a stunned Russian driver films a vehicle on the motorway that has apparently been adapted to look like an upcoming Tesla Cybertruck.
The incident was filmed in the city of Khimki in the western Russian region of Moscow Oblast, and the footage was shared on social media by netizen ‘Hubble’ where it is going viral with 110,000 views in several hours.
Production for the Tesla Cybertruck is slated to begin in 2021 with more models being offered by 2022.

With the whole world eagerly awaiting Elon Musk’s futuristic-looking all-electric battery-powered light commercial vehicle, one keen motorist in Russia apparently could not hold on any longer and he adapted his own version.
In the footage, the ‘Cybertruck Copy’ is seen speeding along the motorway with Russian licence plates.
At one point, the vehicle passes a cop on the roadside who does not seem to pay the futuristic car any mind.
The video was accompanied with the message: “Tesla in Khimki!”
It is not known who adapted the ‘Cybertruck Copy’ and which materials were used.
The Cybertruck is an electric battery-powered light commercial vehicle in development by Tesla.
Three models have been announced, with range estimates of 250 to 500 miles and an estimated 0 to 60 mph time of between 2.9 and 6.5 seconds, depending on the model.
