Don't take away my sunroof. Just get a shade that can be pulled for your comfort. I might even use a shade at times. But, a glass roof is bad ass. peaceWhen Musk and Leno drove the CT, Leno commented about the glass roof and Musk reminded him it was all about a Bad Ass CyberTruck. The Cybertruck debut featured the glass and this forum has shared the patents and tech specs on the glass, all of that to say, Tesla is trying to make this truck to be extremely durable regarding glass.
Regardless of the durability, I find an glass roof to be distracting while driving. I always drive with the shade closed under a sunroof as changing sunlight between the trees can create an undesired strobe effect. I might enjoy a glass roof if this were an R.V. driven seldom for a weekend outing but as my daily truck, I would prefer a solid roof. More specific to this vehicle, I would prefer a solid roof covered with photo voltaic cells and let the glass roof be an option for those that purchase the camp kitchen and plan to off road in their BACT. PV covering the SS might help with surface temperatures as discussed elsewhere in this forum.
Give me a thumbs up if you agree, you would prefer a solid roof.
Give me a thumbs down if you disagree with me; you prefer the glass roof as the truck is designed.
When the truck was unveiled, we heard of reservations for law enforcement and military applications. As a law enforcement vehicle, I’m curious if the flashing lights on the roof would reflect inside the vehicle and be a distraction during a high speed driving situation. For a military vehicle, a glass roof might have advantages, but more often I would think the customer would order it with a metal roof, all things considered.
Much of the catalyst for my opinion comes from the fact the sunroof exploded on my car last week. When I googled it “_________ sunroof explodes” (fill in the blank with your car brand) you will find it is not uncommon, though most people have never heard of it. Sunroof aftermarketeers claim to be repairing them at almost one a day. The tech data suggests the glass is manufactured one millimeter thinner than it use to be and the savings are enjoyed by all car companies. After I checked a few websites, watched some you tube videos, then I filled in the blank with “Tesla”.
It just seems to me, a glass top is a distraction I’d rather not have in my next truck. Give me a thumbs down if you disagree and want a glass topper; give me a thumbs up if you agree a solid roof is preferred for your next truck.
