Calling the electric pick-up truck “insane technology bandwagon,” Musk said the Cybertruck would have both front- and rear-wheel steer that would “not just (turn) like a tank – it can drive diagonally like a crab.”

The vehicle would compete with pickup trucks such as GMC’s Hummer EV, Ford’s F-150 Lightning, and Rivian’s R1T. Of those, R1T is driven by four individual motors powering all four wheels; and GMC’s Hummer can drive diagonally.
