the Tesla Cybertruck design was built with two goals
What you are seeing is a revolution in manufacturability. Folding metal is cheaper than stamping it. No paint is cheaper than paint. Flat glass is cheaper than molded glass.

The high end Cybertruck gets you 500 mile range for $70K. The Roadster has more range but costs 3x. The low end Cybertruck costs as much as a Model 3 but carries six passengers instead of five.
