Rare Crisp Look at The Hidden Details of Tesla Cybertruck From Yesterday's Meeting
Yesterday Tesla displayed its long-expected Cybertruck at the stockholder meeting and a Youtuber Greggertruck took a clear crisp walkaround of the truck from the back and one side. But this walk around shows some very interesting hidden details.
First, it looks like there is a button on Cybertruck's B and C pillars to open the doors of the Cybertruck. This could be a capacitive sensor. I wonder how it works in cold weather, especially if the owner has gloves.
Another hidden thing we see in this video is that it provides a nice view of the inside of the sail panels. It looks like there is some storage there accessed from inside the bed. In my opinion it looks good. Do you like it? But one person suggests to "take it with a grain of salt of course," as he "last heard that the sail panels are gone because part of the rear wheel steering components now take that space."
Now look at the corners of the Cybertruck. I keep thinking that the corners on the window are going to be a liability issue. People write in Tesla Reddit that even watching Elon get out of the truck during the Lithium Refinery groundbreaking, it looked like he almost took his eye out from the door's upper corner.
Yet, another interesting thing we noticed has to do with how Tesla placed the windshield in the Cybertruck. The windshield seems to have a bit of a curvature in it. Why not completely flat? Surely that should be cheaper to make.
But others say it looks completely flat to them, adding The bottom edge is a curve similar to the curved nose. What about you?
Some people say that they are still hoping that there will be a bench seat front in the Cybertruck, but that's seeming less and less likely. "That's half the reason I wanted a Cybertruck, so that it could sit 6 people," writes one user in the Tesla Reddit discussion board.
What's interesting is that in the case of the Tesla Cybertruck, we see a very silly concept vehicle, going to make it to production essentially unaltered. And Cybertruck is already a mainstream vehicle that should sell in high volume, not a brand-boosting stunt.
