In terms of features there has really been very very very little news.

  • Door handles are gone.
  • 4 Wheel steering is likely (maybe optional?)
  • Quad motor is a thing.

Beyond that… look back at the announce video.

There is one video from CyberRodeo where with the rear window missing or down. Not sure if that means anything or not.

EDIT: There is a big ass wiper (aka BAW)

There's likely a yoke, but we don't even know if there will be a frunk!
Frunk I think is safe.

I’m a little anxious about the sail pillars though. But both frunk and sail pillar storage are still listed as features.

Also… I think sail pillar storage is weird to say so we should start referring to them as side trunks. Strunks for short. “My helmet is in the driver side strunk“.

Thursday Aug 4th is annual shareholders meeting “Cyber Roundup”

Chances are there will be no significant updates on Cybertruck.

Expect nothing and you will not be disappointed.

Seriously doubt we get any big Cybertruck announcements until they have all the pieces in place and have a better idea of production start.

How about we call it "side storage". Left & Right side storage. Out of respect for all those folks that drive on the wrong side of the road. :)

From "The kilowatts" on twitter, from the Cyber Rodeo:

'Can confirm Cybertruck rear glass drops – mid gate appears to be able to fold. No photos allowed yet'

Beyond Elon saying it was "worth considering" and confirming there would be some level of bed access, this is the most recent update we have. Take KW's tweet with a grain of salt.

How about panniers. Port and starboard.

I wonder if the cover remains in the mid gate and does not need to retract completely into the rolled storage area. It is flexible and can make what ever bend the mid-gate makes in the open position.

Sorry, that name is taken. Plus your grammar is poor
