After months of seeing various Tesla Cybertruck images and videos in the original stainless steel colour or wrapped in some fancy camouflage or design theme – even disguised as a Ford F-150 for fun – it's time for something really interesting. Or at least, timeless and classic, like all-black. 

Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla's Chief Designer, has been spotted driving a black-wrapped Cybertruck in Santa Monica. According to Adam C (aka @AtomAntEater) on X, the vehicle was seen at today’s Santa Monica Teslas & Coffee.


Because von Holzhausen was in it, this sighting might not only indicate his preference for the matte black colour but also potentially herald an upcoming factory option of wrapping the Cybertruck. 

Tesla has recently launched a premium colour wrap for the Model 3 and Model Y, so a similar option for the Cybertruck would not be surprising – especially because the Cybertruck's stainless steel can't be easily painted.

I'm guessing that not everyone likes the stainless steel colour or the fact that they would all have the same colour as everybody else who owns a Cybertruck. Adding a factory wrap option would create a new degree of personalisation for these trucks that we didn't anticipate.


If the wraps are really coming, the question is when? Some say that the option will appear within several months after the launch, scheduled for 30 November.

But as with everything else Cybertruck-related, there are more questions – particularly about colour choice and pricing here. Wrapping a large vehicle like the Cybertruck will probably require a higher bill than the Model 3/Model Y. On the other hand, will the lines of the Cybertruck might make it easier or harder to wrap?

Here are some additional black Tesla Cybertruck videos, shared by Greggertruck on X.
