Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb... The BAW is longer in this video than we've seen in the past. I mean, it seems to go to the very top of the windshield now. Someone do a sanity check on me, please!

Back in 2019, my rough modelling showed Cd 0.33 or a best case Cd 0.30.
Imagine if CT pulls 1 kWh to cover 3.1 miles avg. So up to 175 kWh pack could achieve the magic 500 mls allowing for ~163 kWh usable.
Aero is one factor, another big one is weight. The 4680 cells were expected to provide significant weight savings. I believe the CT will achieve 500 miles with 175kWh, or less.

The next stage in the Gigawiper evolution. It is now a Terawiper.

No, really. I think it's a couple inches longer than the original "final design" of BAW. I know there was a stubby one, I'm not talking about that one. I'm talking about the one where Franz is standing out front and you can see the clear swipe of the wiper on a dusty windshield behind him. I'm telling you, the one on the bridge is longer.

Camo should be a default to hide that ugly (yeah, it has not grown on me yet).
