The Tesla Cybertruck is an exciting and revolutionary Electric pickup truck that has been generating excitement ever since its unveiling in late 2019. Tesla has been hard at work testing and perfecting the Cybertruck since then, and now, a new beta prototype has been sighted that could hint at a major change in the design.
The latest prototype features a notable absence of a visible wiper, bringing back the “megawiper” debate. Early prototypes of the Cybertruck featured a large windshield wiper that was so large it looked like it could be used as a weapon. CEO Elon Musk previously said that this wiper design would not make it to production, but the beta prototypes that have been spotted in the wild did feature the wiper in question.
The latest sighting of a Cybertruck prototype in California shows a new prototype without any visible wiper. Something is visibly sticking out where the base of the wiper used to be, which could suggest that the wiper was removed for some reason or that there has been a change. Some prospective buyers have been asking for more traditional wipers that tuck inside the base of the hood, but it doesn’t seem like there’s space for that on the Cybertruck.
We are going to keep a close eye on future Cybertruck prototype sightings to see if there are any changes to the wiper. Tesla recently announced that it aims to bring the Cybertruck to production this summer, but we shouldn’t expect significant deliveries until 2024, when the automaker will ramp up to volume production. It will be interesting to see how the wiper situation plays out as the Cybertruck moves closer to production.
