Tesla Has Certificate Issues for Sale in Europe

The Cybertruck innovative features can prevent Tesla from getting a pass to the European continent.

The Tesla Cybertruck in the form, as it is, will not be allowed for sale in Europe. The truck needs to round off its corners. Stefan Teller is sure that the company will have to spend a lot of money on the completion of the Cybertruck in order to get permission to sell it. Presented at the end of November, the electric truck has the status of a concept and will not enter the US market until 2021. It will come to Europe in 2022, if everything goes according to the plan.

By that time, Elon Musk's company needs to provide the truck with the necessary components for certification. The expert sees the greatest danger and problems of the Cybertruck in its inflexible body. According to the European requirements, the front of the vehicle must be able to absorb a lot of the energy in a collision. The experts also doubt the presence of programmable deformation zones in the truck's design.

Contrariwise, the company’s results in crash tests have always been very high, if not excellent, so it is unlikely that the car development team could forget about such an important thing.
