Apparently, Sahm Zafari, the designer of the Tesla Cybertruck did a concept design for a Tesla "Model Zero":


I am assuming the design got modified to be the basis for the cybertruck. But anyone think this concept could be a cool futuristic city car? City robotaxi maybe? Thoughts?

The size and many features are attractive. It would be interesting to see it as a Cyber vehicle with all straight edge stainless steel and glass body.

The break between this and Cyber truck is that Cyber truck isn’t arbitrarily “designed” in the same sense that this is. Cybertruck emerges from a different manufacturing process that doesn’t use a stamped sheet metal skin.

Beside the stainless-steel “exo-skeleton” external body skin, the remaining auto-body frame of the Cybertruck should use stamped sheet metal?

This will be necessary for installing all the mechanichal components but also because the auto-body frame needs

to absorb some of the energy in an impact, otherwise the passengers will bear the brunt of the impact force.
