Tesla's arrival in India has been a topic of discussion for many years. But after learning that Tesla, a manufacturer of electric vehicles, was in active talks with the Indian government to establish a local manufacturing facility here, the matter suddenly came back into the spotlight. If reports are accurate, Tesla will be able to produce EVs in India and sell them for less money. But before that, a recent cause for which Tesla has again caught the attention is its Cybertruck, which was first revealed in 2019. A picture posted on social media indicates that the Cybertruck is now being manufactured at Tesla's Texas Gigafactory. The image shows the facility's employees posing with the first unit. Let's take a quick look at the features and other specs of the production-spec model.
