One can easily mount the windshield wipers on a pocket at the bottom of the windshield and safely out of the slipstream.They could put a retractable pocket it the upper portion of the frunk stainless panel just below the glass that pops up or rotated up and the wiper is concealed inside it. This would be a waterproofing conundrum for sure but it would be one solution and it would definitely work.
It looks to me like the different angles of the hood and the windshield work together to create some aerodynamic slack right over the windshield wiper pocket.
It would cost a couple of extra polygons, but millions of vehicles have solved the windshield wiper problem this way over multiple decades, and it works great!
But the tradeoff is that the the slab-fronted look of the Cybertruck goes away.
My ideal vehicle is an electric minivan with 7500lb+ tow rating. But it's hard to market that vehicle, so I'm not holding my breath. So, pickup it is!
