The Cybertruck looks even better to me in this video when seeing it in motion and in natural outdoor lighting. That stainless steel just pops!

Anyone notice he says 5% size reduction vs 3%? This was shot a while back before he tweeted about a 3% reduction so I assume that's more accurate than his earlier 5% estimate.

For everyone worried about whether it'll fit in your garage, you'll be glad to hear that he's designing its size with that in mind -- "it's gotta fit in a normal garage." (y)

The most informative tidbit for me was in his use of the phrase "300 series" to refer to the stainless confirming what most of surmised. i.e. that 30X is a new alloy in that series.

does the vault cover retract into the roof covering the roof glass or does it go down behind the rear glass? interior looks very roomy.

It rolls down into a compartment below the bed I believe. It rolls down between the rear glass of the cab and the vault area. Here is a video of it in action from the reveal:

It looks really slick when it is rolling down.

The CT is really going to be disruptor in the lucrative full size truck market . I think tens of thousands of potential buyer will be placing a deposit after seeing this episode.

There’s a bump out in the bed right below the rear window. It may roll up inside that area.

Kinda curious how they are going to make this work in the production model. If the tweets that Elon have stated are accurate that you will have access to the vault from the cab then the cover rolling up where it does (between the cab and vault) could be hazardous to limbs :)
