Looks like may not be the latest prototype. I didn't see the rear wheel steering. Or maybe it was going too slow? I don't think so but idk much of that feature.
I don’t think rear steering will be standard, so maybe not ALL prototypes have it.

heck, I believe they give these for events in “valet mode” of sorts to keep from tail gate/ tonneau cover/ frunk access. You can SEE it, but not in access.

maybe it does rear wheel steering, but in valet mode that feature is canceled so you can’t do any fun stuff

the cybertruck is effectively just hardware running software, so it’s just programming allowing features or not.

It does look super quick. Especially at the end of the clip, you can hear it grinding the gravel. Maybe with the yoke it’s 1:1 steering, wherever the yoke is pointing, that’s where the wheels are. …. That’s would be superb.

I like the drilled hole on the right side of the hood. Keychain ring hole. How handy!!

Perhaps they decided a telescoping wiper would be a better deal than the BAW... I'm not crazy about either design to be honest... then again I'm not an engineer, just a guy complaining on the internet :)

I'm sure this is the wiper storage in unused position. Willing to bet when you turn the wipers on, the arm extends out fully prior to wiping. Probably helps reduce drag when not in use which is most of the time.

If it does telescope it probably won't be fast. It might not be a problem as long as it is wiping as it extends and the primary view is maintained. Someone else mentioned double time mode where it does a short stroke over the drivers area.

At some point if it rains hard enough you should just slow down or pull over anyway.

As JK pointed out they might have just removed the upper section for some reason . Maybe to generate 10 pages of clickbait. I fell for it.

The BAW needs to be full size, and instantly available. Its primary function is to clean the AP camera at the top of the windshield. Secondary is "driver visibility".

I'm guessing that the wiper arm shortened right after someone was heard saying "hey, watch this!"

Humans are still the primary drivers. Primary function is driver visibility despite the overriding desire of many on here to jump head first into AP.
