It sure does not seem that the CT hood and large sloped windshield longer dash is going to be a better view advantage like many are claiming (see this on twitter too).
'Seems' is doing heavy lifting here, as there's a direct sight line through where the Lightning keeps its luggage that you san see from a Cybertruck.

Better is a low bar when the baseline is so bad.

I'm confused because this image just shows that in the CT you can see the dash
BUT not any more of what is in front of the truck than a traditional hood.
Meaning the *very* CT deep dash blocks the view.

No

the point f the photos is that, where the bar is, is the location of the front of the CT dashboard

The dashboard extends forward parallel to the ground - just as a flat "hood" would do - except behind the windshield

i guess people are confused because it's behind the windshield, instead of in front of it?

Not comparable? -Crissa
In that picture from the CT drivers seat you can't see over the dash
in the same way you can't see over a traditional hood.

How can you see over the CT dash?

Yeah, pretty sure it's wrong. The photos aren't even the same scale.

-Crissa
The scale doesn't change the geometry.

Because you can get the same view from a Honda Fit. It's not at all showing what you can't see.

6'3" Marques Brownlee (seats adjusted appropriately presumably) says:

20:10 into this YT vid but the link should go to that point.
