The Tesla Cybertruck has been officially launched, and keen-eyed fans have been sharing their public sightings online.

An insider video from the company’s Christmas party shows the Cybertruck -along with what appears to be a clay model-, the ATV- Tesla’s electric quad bike all-terrain vehicle- and finally the Tesla Roadster.

Previous sightings include the  Los Angeles Airport by via Cody Simms on Twitter.

The vehicle was also spotted by Chicaco_Roy in Hawthorne, near the Tesla Design Studio in the day time.

In both cases, the truck positively dwarfs the surrounding cars, but interestingly Elon Musk has said on twitter the final vehicle may be slightly smaller.

Musk said this is to make sure it is possible to park the car in existing structures such as parking garages and spaces.

The Tesla Cybertruck in the wild does, of course, look about double the size of other cars on the road, but that is pretty standard for trucks in USA.

Elon Musk has also been taking the Cybertruck for a spin around LA:
