I think it is, almost certainly, the CT windshield. Very cool, great find. I think we can maybe also draw some small conclusions from seeing it, including:

-They are building new prototypes.
-It has a windshield wiper
-The design has changed a bit, possibly with some more curves/rounded edges for aerodynamics.

Not sure why Tesla doesn't give us more details on anything,when Ford or rivian launches something we get all the details and specs...and now Tesla is last to production of the cybertruck. 🙁 Hopefully wiper placement isn't horrible.

Because we're in Beta. Rivian gave random things, Ford didn't really give us details, either. Rivian is in trouble today for one of their random things being pulled!

There are other changes or the glass is still being processed. The tint on the top is missing.

Noted that missing corner too... Was wondering if its for some sort of windshield wiper actuator myself?
Edit: Removing repetitious comment, lol.
I see you all are way ahead of me on the imagination train!

The way the video has been edited with the Cybertruck shirt, leading right into the shot of the Cybertruck glass, I think its obvious! Beta parts are being built right now!

Looks like the lower left (drivers side as sitting in it) corner is scored to be removed, like the right side. You can see a small notch is cut into the glass.

Its possible that this piece isn't finished. They may be hand shaping it. I know if I was making a prototype I would leave some extra to be manually removed, to get the fit perfect. Easier to remove material than to add..........

A small point.... its the drivers side if you are sitting in it or not.

Or is it...FSD, who's actually the driver. I think CT will tolerate our monkey driving skills from time to time though ;)

Little mock up I did, Top (old) vs Bottom (new):

It's hard to tell from the angle we have, but it's possible there is a slight curve to the glass at the top. Then the roof would need to be curved a bit to meet the windshield.

Also, as someone pointed out above, somewhere in there is a light bar. (Though personally I wouldn't care if they dropped the light bar entirely)

(but, from the video, clearly a laminate).
How is it clearly a laminate? I mean, there's some sort of coating that has the shading on it, but is there anything I missed?

Also, why wouldn't ALON by laminated?

I would expect it to be laminated, no matter the glass it's made from.
