Tesla China revealed a surprising new accessory this week, but it has subsequently disappeared from its social media accounts.
The new accessory is in partnership with McDonald’s China. It’s a Cybertruck-inspired spoon to eat your McFlurry with, and the “accessory” is limited to 50,000 units and costs $4 according to a Twitter post by Sawyer Merritt.

Fake news afaik
A post from McDonald’s China on its WeChat account showed more photos of the spoon which comes with its own steel-looking “Cyber Spoon” packaging.
Based on the McDonald’s WeChat post, the spoons will be available from September 6th until September 26th.
McDonald’s has shared some photos of the Cyber Spoon on Xiaohongshu, a Chinese Social media site with over 200 million monthly users. McDonald’s also posted about it on their WeChat account. Tesla posted about it on their Weibo account.— Sawyer Merritt (@SawyerMerritt) September 6, 2023

Elon Musk replied to Sawyer Merritt’s tweet saying it was “fake news”. Tesla China appears to have subsequently removed the post from its Weibo page, but not before screenshots from the announcement were snapped.
Tesla is known for its unusual limited edition accessories.
The latter is a proposed solution for UK drivers to reach ticket booths and buttons while driving a left-hand drive Tesla sourced from Europe.
