This week a drone video from the Texas Gigafactory, shows what seems to be the truck undergoing wind tunnel testing. What caught the attention of many, however, was the all-electric pickup truck's wiper blade in action.
When the Cybertruck was first revealed in late 2019, the massive prototype lacked any wipers. Subsequent Tesla patents, including one for laser wipers, generated buzz among electric vehicle (EV) enthusiasts. But recent sightings of the vehicle suggested that Tesla is considering a more straightforward approach for the Cybertruck—a single, oversized wiper.
The lone, large wiper on the Cybertruck's alpha units have received mixed reactions from EV supporters. It looks massive but also appears to be super functional. Elon mentioned in the past that it would be designed to be easily removable. It will be be interesting to see how that feature will gets implemented.
We also got a sneak peak at the Cybertruck frunk in use and it seems to have a power lift. The photo, posted on Twitter by @greggertruck, showcased the all-electric pickup truck with its front trunk (frunk) open. This implies that the vehicle's iconic light bar lifts up when the frunk is opened. Given the Cybertruck's substantial size, its frunk is expected to be quite roomy. This will be much appreciate since pickup trucks are fundamentally utility vehicles. We believe the Cybertruck will be the best truck in its class and can't wait till we take delivery!
