The much-awaited Tesla Cybertruck is approaching its imminent release as evidenced in the recently discovered plan of the company of installing wider and longer charging spaces for its Supercharger stalls.
The latest proposal of the Pasadena Water and Power Department in California reveals plans to erect 20 Tesla charging points within the area. Six of these said spaces are wider and longer to accommodate the size of the Tesla Cybertruck revealed in the presentation of the Pasadena officials. One of these said Supercharger stations is proposed to be positioned at 85 E, State Street in Pasadena, California.
The Tesla Supercharger stalls would be capable of the Tesla V3 250 kW. The proposal asks for a five-year term with an option for a couple of years extension as detailed in the Agenda Report. Additionally, it shows the number of charging spaces available at the proposed site.
These documents were spotted by RubberToe, a Tesla Motors Club member. Based on the details, it appears that Tesla is planning to install its fastest chargers. This kind of Supercharger allows the Tesla Model 3 to reach an 80% charge in just under 20 minutes of charging time. It is possible that Tesla is planning to position the six Supercharger stalls differently to ensure it could reach the charging port of the Cybertruck.
When Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the prototype of the Cybertruck, it measured 231.7 inches long, 79.8 inches wide, and 75 inches tall. It has up to 16 inches of ground clearance, a 35-degree approach angle, and a 28-degree departure angle. The Cybertruck prototype appeared to be of the same size as the bigger versions of the Ford F-150.
It stopped the ball, a normal window would have shattered. Backstage it worked. When they sledge hammered the car (try doing that to a Ford) it shook the molding loose. cybertruck is badass and 1,000,000+ preorders prove this.

In the early part of 2020, Musk made several comments about the Tesla Cybertruck and how it might change when it entered production. The CEO shared that the Cybertruck would see a size reduction of about 3% from its prototype. Musk mentioned that the upcoming all-electric pickup truck might feature lowered window sill height and more level centerline.
Interestingly, Musk changed his mind on the size of the Cybertruck in May. The change in his decision came after he reviewed Cybertruck's design with his chief designer. It is worth mentioning that while these proposals hint that some of the Supercharger stalls are for the Cybertruck, these are unconfirmed and unofficial.
In this case, it is smarter to take this latest information about Tesla and its Supercharger stalls with a pinch of salt. Tesla plans to release the all-electric Cybertruck pickup truck in 2021.
