The enormous windscreen wiper that was present on the Tesla Cybertruck EV prototype has long been a source of contention.
The much-anticipated and protracted Cybertruck pickup’s most recent prototype was first shown to us last week. We did, however, catch a glimpse of its sides and back, revealing its brand-new side mirrors.
As a result, until now, its front end was mysterious. An updated prototype of the Elon Musk-led EV manufacturer’s all-electric pickup truck, known as the Cybertruck, has been spotted. We can now see how it appears from the front thanks to its updated design.
Tesla modified its all-electric truck, but according to the reports, the EV manufacturer kept the front’s “monstrous” wiper.
To some Tesla zealots, the Cybertruck’s windscreen wiper has long been a source of contention. The electric pickup’s early prototype had a single, enormous windscreen wiper.
Some believed that the large automaker would take action regarding its wiper blades in light of the critics’ harsh remarks. The most recent prototype, though, suggests otherwise.
Drive Musk, the CEO of Tesla, recently confirmed in a tweet that the Cybertruck is very close to its production design, according to Tesla Canada.
Therefore, it’s possible that the most recent prototype will look very similar to the all-electric pickup truck when it goes into production soon. It’s important to remember that Musk has previously said that the Cybertruck’s absurdly large wiper “troubles” the billionaire businessman the most.
According to the reports, the Tesla CEO acknowledged that the Cybertruck “wiper is what troubles me most” in 2021. He responded in this way to remarks that make fun of the EV’s wiper blades.
The CEO acknowledges that finding a different design is still quite challenging. There is “no easy solution,” he claims.
He is thinking of something. But carrying it out can be “complex.” According to Musk, a “deployable wiper that stows in [the] front trunk” might be the answer.
The large wiper is still present in the most recent prototype, though. The enormous automaker appears to still be working on a fix for its enormous wiper blade. It continued to use the contentious design in the interim.
It is unknown if the EV manufacturer will maintain this style until the Tesla Cybertruck begins shipping in the summer of 2023.
