Note the 4 to 6 rectangular holes in the bed. I don't recall seeing them on the Prod Beta version at Investor Day. Maybe attachment points for accessories or part of a railing system?

It appears that the underbody frame is painted white, which might explain why there are calls for paint technicians on the Cybertruck line:

Around the 23 ...or maybe it was the 26 minute point the driver sticks his arm out to adjust the mirror. Does this mean no electronically controlled mirrors? Deal breaker. Cancel my order.

On another note, @Albern , I didn't see the underbody at all. How do you know it's painted white?

Yeah I noticed that too about the side mirrors. Either they're not functioning on this unit or Tesla is serious about having these be removable after delivery.

From the last photo with the driver's door open, look at the B-Pillar.

I agree and believe they will not put cost into the mirrors they believe are not necessary and most will pull off.

The reason for the paint-like position being offered, spray on solar coating. TM

All external surfaces will generate energy. Time crystals are involved.

Hmm tbh I wasn't going to remove my side mirrors so I kinda want power mirrors. Not a deal breaker but kinda lame if no power mirrors. Also i wish the side mirrors were heated like in my past bmw.

Top glass looks like it might have a ceramic coating for heat rejection.

The rear window that looks like solar panels is back. Does not seem to allow any view into the rear of the truck. Has the same reflective quality of solar panels.

Also, you can see in the beginning of the video some very tight turns. Likely 4WS in action.

Very clear even the Tesla employees (or perhaps guests?) on the lot are very fascinated by it

Fwiw

They want you to remove them. I know that’s dumb. But what they designed was no mirrors. They’ll put little effort to keep the price down and get most to remove “cause it’s cool”

What is up with the detail on the silver "tracks" on either side of the top glass? Mounting point for accessories? Roof rack?
