Elon Musk: the Tesla Cybertruck isnt getting any smaller

In the days and weeks after Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the cybertruck a post-apocalyptic inspired vehicle made of cold-rolled steel there was a lot of speculation about whether it would be smaller once it actually made it to market.
Production of the Cybertruck is still a long ways off. There isnt even a factory to build the all-electric truck yet. However, Musk did provide some clarification Saturday on its size. In a tweet, Musk wrote Reviewed design with Franz last night. Even 3% smaller is too small. Will be pretty much the same size. Well probably do a smaller, tight world truck at some point. (Musk was referring to Teslas head of design Franz von Holzhausen. And we assume Musk meant to write light not tight truck.)
The change is important to note since he told Jay Leno that the vehicle is actually 5% too big, according to a teaser video promoting an upcoming episode of Jay Lenos Garage that will air Wednesday on CNBC. If we just take all of the proportions and drop them by 5%, he told Leno, later adding it has to fit into a normal garage.
Musk had previously said the company could probably reduce the width of the cybertruck by an inch and maybe reduce length by 6-plus inches without losing on utility or esthetics.
