The start of the clip does a good job showing how much smaller the production model is compared to f150. Even with it being in the foreground, noticeably shorter and smaller overall compared to the original prototype.

Interesting how they designed it with the default stop position up, where most other models have the wiper(s) down when they're turned off. Likely wasn't room to neatly recess it in their preferred frunk lid design. The up position likely also reduces aerodynamic drag.

It appears to rest on the masked out border of the windshield at the A-Pillars so that it won't be seen hardly from the inside driver's view when it is not in operation.

I also think in the up position, the BAW offers added EXTRA crash and rollover protection.

I wonder how much of the passengers view won't get wiped because of the arc of the BAW, might be kind of distracting.

more will be wiped than on most other vehicles

large portions of the front glass are not ‘windshield’

and due to the slope, large portions of the windshield higher up aren’t critical to forward visibility

holy frig, what's going to happen when you are flying down the highway at 80 mph in a torrential rainfall, I can't see that thing working much faster than that without blowing up

That wiper is intimidating. Be careful driving near a bike lane turn on the wiper and you might knock a biker off their bike 😂

Was hoping they put one on each side of the windshield. At least it would have cleaned the entire windshield, not just partially.

From what we've seen in all the photos, the entire visible area of the windshield is covered. Remember, the windshield extends all the way to the roof peak, and a significant portion of that is just for looking at the sky. What is ahead of you appears to be well covered by the BAW.
