For the front seats, I wouldn’t think we can glean anything about headroom from this video

In my F150, I can raise/lower the driver’s seat probably 6”. I prefer it raised so high that my head (I’m 6’3”) nearly touched the headliner.

Presumably the same raise/lower functionality is somewhere here:

Tesla Cybertruck Cybertruck Video: Just driving on through Giga Texas.. look at the headroom inside. 5241ED6C-E3A1-4318-84D7-025741892DF8


But I doubt the rear seats raise/lower, and is another matter. The combo of the high windowsill and a lowered seat means my motion sickness will not abide

The height of the original prototype was fine despite all the whining, why would it suddenly be shorter? It would means less stuff under the vault cover.

The truck seems less tall? Weren't we juat ooing and ahhing about its ride height last week?

-Crissa
Shorter truck in terms of length would mean less head room for rear passengers as the glass has to come down at a steeper angle.

Just driving on through Giga Texas.. look at the headroom inside.
My concern is not about the from seats but the rear seats!
They did lower the seats to have headroom, but will the passengers be seated too low and can't the road ahead (kids for example)?

It's a simple trigonometry to figure out how much losing 6" from the base of a right triangle will change the height at a point on the hypotenuse but...

...I can just tell you it's not that much. You'd have to shorten the truck by like a foot to lose not inch at that angle.

Keep in mind the height of the tailgate looks to have been reduced as well so there are two compounding factors. If my theory about the OG concept being over sized is correct we could be looking at one foot or more in length if this is sub 231.7" and height could've also been different.

That's not mathematically possible to lose a foot in vertical dimension: It would take least three inches lower at the tailgate to lose an inch at the back wall.

I stated a foot in length not in vertical dimension. I would say the tailgate could very well be three inches lower than the 2019 concept. Anyway it doesn't matter we'll just see when it comes out.

Doesn’t appear to be a bunch in the back.
I think 3 adult males that aren’t kevin heart will be pretty cramped
Elon isn’t a small dude, which means he may be used to less head room.
