Surprise surprise, Elon Musk is boasting about his Mars Rover…sorry Cyber Truck, again. This time he’s claiming that the Cyber Truck can turn into a boat and can travel across bodies of water that are not too choppy for a pretty decent distance. Musk of course loves to talk up his accomplishments so whether this is true or not remains to be seen until 2023.
Of course, Musk has a reason for why this needs to work…he has to get across the channel from one house to other. Insert eye rolling here. Not really thinking about the customer, just himself as usual. Starbase to South Padre Island is where this idea for a truck boat is born. Is this a good idea? Yes. But should customers’ needs be the reason behind this announcement? Absolutely.

Whether the truck boat thing is real or not, we’ll have to wait and see.
