I think they are really struggling with the hinge/fit/motor on the frunk lid. Seems like every other pic or video shows people fiddling with it.

I wouldn’t worry about the panel gaps on these. Looks like they were crash tested. These are the marks left from the side impact test. If anything, I can’t believe how well aligned they still are after crash tests.

Looks like 3mm cold-rolled stainless steel Cybertruck survived.

Question should be is the side impact test machine OK? Still works?
How bad it it dented.
Did it blow any gaskets or rupture hoses?

I just registered to comment that I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion of what looks like very limited headroom for the rear seat.

The delivery drivers don't look very tall and it seems as though they would have very limited headroom in the 2nd row.

This has been my primary concern with the CT after it was shrunk to fit into a garage. I know that the concept vehicle had ample rear head room but it was also a substantially larger truck.

Nice one!

While agreeing dirty CT looks better, driving around like this won't please many.

But, come on... How many people who want a clean car touch their car in so many weird places? When was the last time you put your hand right on the middle of the door, for example rediculous. Most people avoid touching painted surfaces and windows of cars. I know I do. There may be some smudges near/around the "door handle" area, but that's about it.

For some reason, people need to touch the unpainted metal, like it's a unicorn or something.

It's like "Okay, dude, I can let you take a short ride. We aren't going far."

Sorry about the lousy pics, it was very windy out there.



Unloading of the second Cybertruck. Same backup reverse sound as other Teslas.

Does anyone know the approximate length of the hood in chickens or whatever from like an aerial perspective? Then we’d know about how deep the frunk is. What if you could access the glovebox from the frunk? That would be awesome!

Humans + shiny and/or textured things = touchy touchy. Also, no one reads signs anymore.

The unique shape of the Cybertruck creates an illusion. The triangular peak of the roof is much higher than a traditional vehicle. In the photo above, the green triangle is the rear-view mirror (and forward camera). The red line is therefore just above eye-level for most people.

There's plenty of headroom.

Fingerprints on the body will deter many, which is unfortunate.
Legacy auto has developed a couple of highly proprietary methods to deal with the fingerprint problem. Tesla should learn from them.

The first involves a special coating that allows fingerprints to just "peel off". And after the proprietary coating peels off it exposes an even more fingerprint resistant material underneath:

Now if that technology is not cool enough for you, there is a second line of defense against fingerprints as the truck ages. That's right, it just keeps getting more fingerprint resistant as time passes:

Tesla doesn't know what they are doing because a Cybertruck will get fingerprints just as easily in 20 years as the day you took delivery! Such amateurs!

If they do, and it bothers you that much, you can just spray a spot of WD-40 and rub them off.
I used to have a Jones Dog trailer (Stainless Steel) for many years, after each use water and WD-40 mixture with a rag kept it spotless even after my dogs jumping in and out.
