Ever have your fingers caught in a car door? My hidden fear with a CT.

(watch, you will soon see FUD articles on the danger of chopping fingers)

Might see articles about it, but most likely it’ll have safety sensor like the windows do. It’ll likely be *safer* than a slamming car door which is pretty brutal and has caused a lot of injuries.

My brother got his head stuck in an electric car window back in the 70s… my mom panicked when she heard him cry out as it closed on his noggin and she couldn’t remember which direction to push the lever to open it.

Sadly I was too young to remember it, but it does explain so much.

I doubt it. The single screen was a cost-cutting measure to get the Model 3 sold at a somewhat decent price. But EV costs are coming down, including screens, and now there is competition. You can get a Mach E with two screens. All competing trucks will have 2 or more screens. I think all CT's will have 2 (or 3, likely) screens. Deleting them for cheaper models costs more than it's worth.

In fact, I think future model 3's and Y's will have a driver's screen to remain competitive.
Wasn't there something a while back about the dash being some type of OLED glass rather than the cardboard the launch prototype was made from? Haven't heard anything about that lately. I was hoping it would be a way to customize your dash to a variety of options, from marble to wood grain. Or other vehicle specific info desired. Something like that could be super customizable.

<tokes spliff> anyway, back to my fantasy...

Maybe it's a fingerprint scanner like on a cellphone.

I would hope my guests/family could open their door with their finger. I'm hoping the vehicle will unlock by sensing my phone, and then all the sensors/touchpoints would be unlocked for anyone to use them.

Well, the one on my phone can scan my finger to unlock... but if it's already unlocked, it just opens.

Love the people losing their shit over panel gap issues on a beta build.. when the production line hasn't even been built.. as if this is something indicative of production release panel gap issues.

You do realize these alpha/beta builds are basically hand assembled.

:ROFLMAO:

I will really miss the turn-signal stalk if it's gone. The S-Plaid uses touch-buttons on the yoke, which will be difficult to get comfortable with.

Not that I'm giving up my place in line, lol
FSD does the turn signals for you!

I think the touch button with the small white square is just a light, so one knows where to touch at night

The Tailgate looks like it converters the top triangle button into rectangle on each side and added the center one since everyone is used to using a center button on every tailgate or lift gate everywhere. The rocker button for cover open and close is still present above the tailgate release.

Cabin to vault passthrough would be an insanely great feature! Not so long ago it got me thinking how they’d implement that. This “vault-door” will definitely have a portion of tonneau cover inside, when tonneau cover is retracted, because it will take less time for it to slide out when you need to cover the bed.

My guess is that on input (a button somewhere near second row/via the Tesla App or on the infotainment screen) Cybertruck initiates a maximum retraction of tonneau cover, which then stays on a coil under the floor, emptying the “vault-door”, allowing it to fold down with the second row seats.

The only concern is that the channel, where tonneau cover slides up and down is now uncovered and potentially is vulnerable to debris or whatever unless somehow protected!

This cropped closeup shows:
  • Instrument cluster display in front of driver
  • Auto shift out of park feature (The auto shift out of park feature is shown by the large up arrow. Only the Model X and S currently have this feature.)
  • Steering yoke
