When one thinks of the Tesla Cybertruck, the name Elon Musk likely comes to your mind immediately. As the owner of Tesla Inc., Elon Musk proclaimed nearly 10 years ago that he wanted to create a truck that would be sold by Tesla. Musk also publicly declared that the design of the Cybertruck was inspired by Blade Runner and James Bond.
However, though Musk was the one who publicly announced the project and openly discussed the idea of a Cybertruck, it was not Elon Musk himself who actually designed the long-awaited Tesla Cybertruck. So who designed the Tesla Cybertruck?
The answer is a little less complicated than one would think. First to be credited with the design of the Tesla Cybertruck would be Tesla’s chief designer, Franz von Holzhausen.
Franz Von Holzhausen
Franz von Holzhausen had previously been commended for creating modern vehicles without chaotic or fantastical designs. Prior to his work with Tesla, Franz von Holzhausen was the Director of Design for Mazda North America. Other Tesla designs by the German car designer include the Tesla Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y.

As well, Franz von Holzhausen works with a team of designers. Others who contributed to the design of the Tesla Cybertruck and are credited with its design are Ian Kettle, Sahm Jafari, David Imai, and Ivan Lampkin.
The Tesla Cybertruck is a unique and innovatively designed electric vehicle which is being produced by the futuristic automotive company Tesla. The Cybertruck, announced in 2019, is still under development and has yet to be released to the purchasers who pre-ordered their vehicle.
Those who are interested in the Tesla Cybertruck may be interested in similar, futuristically designed products, such as the Cyberbackpack or the Cyberpowerbank. Both products were designed with modernity as a primary focus and are inspired by the forward-thinking model that Tesla and its Cybertruck bring to mind.
