Tech billionaire has confirmed that the Cybertruck will have a yoke steering wheel.

According to Electrek, Musk also said that the electric pickup truck will be a "technology bandwagon".

It could mean that it will have a better version of the new steering wheel, the report said.

The CEO mentioned that the Cybertruck will bring a lot of new technology.

"Cybertruck will reach far into a post-apocalyptic future and bring that technology to now," Musk said.

Musk did not elaborate on what technology, but he seemed to give a clue regarding the steering wheel.

When unveiled the Cybertruck prototype in 2019, it featured a butterfly steering wheel, or what calls a "yoke" wheel.

The report said that it was not that big a deal since the vehicle was still only a prototype and production is still in the future.

But, Tesla brought the yoke steering wheel to the production versions of the refreshed Model S and Model X.

Tesla is expected to bring the Cybertruck to the market by the end of next year, but Musk said that he will give a product roadmap update early in 2022.
