how vertcast Listeners know that I am deeply and forever fascinated by the Tesla Cybertruck’s wiper blades – one of the most ridiculous design compromises in automotive history on a vehicle that is itself a design compromise. I like it very much.
Anyway, I asked listeners to send in detailed shots to confirm the rumors I’d heard — and my thanks to the dozens of people who shared the photos. However, so far I haven’t found anything to go around: our own Parker Ortolani spotted the Cybertruck in New York City and snapped several photos that show the “single wiper” is actually made up of several stacked. Consists of row eraser blades.
I’m told the idea seems to be to make replacement easier – the assumption being that it’s easier to get standard wipers than a bulky custom part. Here’s a close-up that definitely shows a second blade at the end of the arm:
Here’s where things get more interesting: I have an unconfirmed note in my inbox saying that the mop is already here three The cascading blades and wiper arm length mean the tip moves at dangerously high speeds to complete the huge arc it creates with each wipe. If you can confirm any of this, let me know. edges Cybertruck is America’s premier source for news, and that’s thanks to readers like you.
