A few days ago, an overseas netizen revealed that the Tesla Cybertruck car he bought had rusted in just a few days. In response to this problem, the official Cybertruck account reproduced the response of Cybertruck Chief engineer Wes Morrill, Engineering Director Tesla.

Stainless steel is active and the free iron on it will rust, but this is only surface contamination and can be easily removed, Wes Morrill said. At the same time, it also provides solutions, including the use of detergents for decontamination. Wes Morrill points out that the use of "Bar Keeper's Friend" works well; the detergent brand citrisurf77 can also loosen the sediment by simply wiping it. And if there is more obvious dirt, you can use a blue scratch-proof detergent brand Scotch Brite pad, which will not leave any marks on the metal.

Earlier, an overseas netizen posted that the car he bought, Tesla Cybertruck, had rust spots after being caught in the rain. It can be seen from the pictures that there are many corrosion spots on the surface of the car body. The netizen said that a Tesla Cybertruck was mentioned on February 1 this year. At that time, it was a rainy day in Los Angeles, and the metal body had been initially corroded after being caught in the rain, so he recorded the whole process, hoping to ensure that his car could be dealt with during the warranty period, and booked a warranty service for this. In the meantime, the netizen also tried to clean the outside of the car body to confirm whether the spots were rust or dirt. However, Tesla after-sales staff said that this kind of warranty needs to go through the process, and the staff did not bring repair tools, and said Tesla had not dealt with such repair work before. Finally, the staff recorded the situation and said, "We will repair the tools after we get them next month."

But the owner disagreed, saying he had driven the Cybertruck for only 381 miles, only 11 days after picking up the car and finding it rusty, and spent most of his time parked in front of his home, probably due to cold weather, rain and orange rust in direct sunlight. Some netizens also found that Cybertruck's stainless steel body does not have a transparent coating and can only be cleaned by polishing for the affected car owners.

Cybertruck, Tesla's first electric pickup truck, was launched at its headquarters in Los Angeles on November 22nd, 2019. Officials have said the car has a stainless steel body and will not undergo any painting, and the glass can withstand the impact of baseball or category 4 hail at a speed of 70 mph.

As Tesla's first electric pickup truck, Tesla Cybertruck is very popular around the world. As early as 2019, the car was unveiled only a week ago, and the official convenience said that the number of orders exceeded 250000. Unfortunately, it was not until the end of last year that the car began to be delivered to consumers.

Last December, Cybertruck opened its first delivery at a Texas superfactory and officially announced that the starting price without discount is $60990 (RMB 435000), $79990 (RMB 571000) and $99900 (RMB 714000), while the cheapest rear-wheel drive version will not be delivered until 2025.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, believes that Tesla has the ability to deliver about 250000 Cybertruck vehicles a year, but in Tesla's financial report not long ago, the official revealed that the annual production capacity of Cybertruck pickup trucks, a super factory in Texas, was less than 125000. Tesla said at the time that he expected the capacity of the Cybertruck to climb longer than other models because of the complexity of its manufacturing.

On January 28th this year, Tesla Cyber off-road station wagon (Cybertruck) was unveiled in the Chinese market, including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and other cities. However, due to production capacity, regulations and other factors, the car can not be introduced into the Chinese market for a short time. It is still unknown whether the car can enter the Chinese market in the future.
