    Cybertruck Windshield Glass spotted in new Tesla glass video?

    Maybe it's a bad angle but the only other thing that's missing is a cut in the black filter at the top of the windscreen for the light-bar. Assuming this is closer to an alpha build, maybe the recent patent for curved glass edges won't be applied to CT; or it still needs further processing.

    Image of new Cybertruck with a polished stainless steel finish?

    It looks like the original CT prototype sitting in the Design Studio at Hawthorne.

    Tesla’s Elon Musk highlights Cybertruck’s uniqueness, explains adoption of yoke

    Given Elon's comment, I hope this means that CT will have a dedicated driver's screen to monitor FSD / Autopilot, vehicle telemetry, and maybe even a video feed from that front bumper during off-road scenarios. I'm all for the yoke (but haven't yet tried it) but fingers crossed that when CT is...

    Elon, it's finally time to release the Kraken!!!

    I like the title of this thread. Elon actually said this when they released the dual-motor Model S a number of years ago.

    Cybertruck’s updated origami-style windshield and glass dashboard teased in patent

    Interesting!! I wonder if it could mean for the A-pillars that the glass will be curved at 606A and 606B to also help with increasing visibility by reducing the non-visible thickness of those sections. Increasing visibility was an objective Elon mentioned on the Leno episode.

    Tesla Cybertruck Design Patent Awarded

    I'm a little confused by the Electrek article and their references to different design inspirations to the CT. Reveal night had a Delorean and a number of vehicles from Bladerunner which was credited by Franz and Elon as their source of inspiration. Also, the patent document doesn't even...

    I wish Musk would consider this concept

    I'm also hoping for multiple screens in the CT - similar to the S/X at least. Some things to consider: - I see CT positioned more as a luxury-adventure truck rather than a work vehicle. - Single centre screen (3/Y) is better suited for the Robotaxi fleet. - The argument that CT will only have a...

    Fold down entrance to the bed from the cabin

    Pass-Through = YES Mid-Gate = NO To me a pass-through large enough for a person to crawl into is much more elegant than an open wide space to the bed.

    A More Useful Frunk

    While the F-150 frunk is impressive, doing something similar to CT would compromise the exoskeleton design and make it more akin to a body-on-frame requiring internal structures to hang panels off of. Additionally, if F-150 drivers are loading the frunk with dense items (bags on cement) I'm...

    Video: Cybertruck Lowered Rear Air Suspension and Drops Tailgate Ramp @ Giga Texas

    I hope the gate and ramp will be electrical.

    MATTEL 1:10 RC Cybertruck Coming Back + New Cyberquad on May 21!

    Does anyone find the sizing of the Cyberquad odd? It looks much smaller when next to or loaded in the bed of the CT.

    RAM TRX pickup spotted at Fremont plant for Cybertruck benchmark testing

    Any woman who drives CT would get my attention / have extra points in my book. Doesn't make her any less feminine but more interesting for sure. :love:(y)

    CyberTruck production start date = April 2022

    Same!! I'm also wondering why an X Plaid+ isn't offered yet. Might be because of constraints with 4680 and made sense to focus that capacity on 3, Y, S, CT, and Semi initially.

    📸 Cybertruck Spotted at Giga Texas Plant! + Interior Look with Yoke Steering Wheel and Performance Pedals!

    Agreed!! I'm hoping that CT will get the same interior features as the new S/X. Everytime I say this, people doubt it'll happen because of the low starting price and the supposed "down-market" consumer base. But I would argue given the design-manufacturing cost reductions and the massive dash...

    📸 Cybertruck Spotted at Giga Texas Plant! + Interior Look with Yoke Steering Wheel and Performance Pedals!

    Maybe it flew in on one of the Antonovs that was delivering a Gigapress last week.

    How Tesla’s Battery Mastermind Is Tackling EVs Biggest Problem

    Great interview and I miss hearing from JB when he was at Tesla. I wonder how closely he keeps in touch with the Tesla Team and Elon.
