Cybertruck

Some Features that I'd like to see for the Cybertruck

Some features I'd like to see on the Cybertruck. If cameras cannot be used for side mirrors, could the attached side view mirrors retract completely into the body of the truck? It would make it easier to get into tight garages. Some version of 4wheel steer would also be very nice for parking, towing and other tight clearances.

I hope you can consider these....

  • Four-wheel steering would be cool, but would increase cost, complexity, weight, inefficiency, would complicate the design, (especially with the tri-motor), and could also greatly diminish towing capability. All of which goes against what the cybertruck is supposed to be as a high-performance but still practical truck that's easy to produce at a reasonable price. It'd be cool to have for sure, but if given the option I personally would opt-out.
  • I would like some low profile D-rings in/under/around the bed and accessory mounts around the vehicle for tying down cargo, putting on-and-off lumber racks, spare tires, or storage racks, a mounting kit or pop-off port to add a bumper and wench with separate power nearby (to power and hopefully control the wench and directional spotlights, simple dual-servos, and switches, from the dash tablet).

    I am also hoping on the top of the cab that there could be a recessed rail for roof accessories such as LED light bars, cool branded Tesla bar mounts, luggage rack... etc.

    Also, I would love to have an external keyed storage space for tools and gear with led lights that illuminate at night when the doors are opened (perhaps if there is room on the exterior fenders of the bed). The tale gate would be a great place to have a general "hidden" storage compartment with foam insert. When hunting I would love to have my bow and arrows there, on camping trips it would be neat to have a separate tailgate with a built-in stove and electric grill. But I would be satisfied if all the tools for the Tesla were organized there.

    finally, I would like a reinforced universal hidden gooseneck receiver bolts with cool T (Tesla) covers on the bed... or cooler yet! an actual low profile gooseneck hitch option with a cover plate that hides it when not in use.
  • I think I would pay extra also to have a larger and curved "sexy" dash tablet inside. :)

    I've been waiting for this truck since before the Model 3 came out I hope it's capable of towing a gooseneck fifth wheel. I second this statement on the gooseneck hitch I don't care about anything other than this. Would perfectly tow my 39ft 12,000 lb RV while also having the ability to have a quiet generator omg this is so exciting I can't wait.
  • I'm also thinking about the Cyberquad too most of the older folks in campgrounds are driving around in a golf cart. I'll be driving around the atv :smiley:
  • Upon further analysis I do infact want to ask for a 7way pin connection in the bed of truck.
  • I would like to have an auxiliary battery to put in the fronk or under the bed to extend the range for towing. When removed, could double as power for the RV etc.
  • Don't forget the winch you'll need to move it.

    Elon said your covered on #2. You would be able to drop the tailgate and it would have lip you can fold up to hold 4'x8' Sheets.
    For #1, there was some talk about groves you could use T-Adapters to create flexible anchor points.
  • * Nightvision + Infrared (to include optional infrared spotlight)
    * FSD: select geolocation on map and truck will adjust and take best path (think: overlanding/offroad)
  • I have my eyes open for all the features shown in the images during the unveil. Specifically camping swing out burners. Whether or not it will have the solar bed cover, winch? front plow? what windshield wipers it will use. Will it have side mirrors?
  • My passion is flying gliders. I would love to see a CT have one of the Telsa motors placed in the back as a winch to tow a glider. No more relying on powered aircraft to tow.
  • I’ve been looking into the ideas of the “mid-gate” this I believe is a real game changer if Tesla can pull it off. The idea of full access to the box from within the cab is huge IMO. Also extending the box length into cab for those 4x8 sheets then closing tailgate. It’s the logistics of the tonneau that could play havoc with this idea but I’d love to see it happen.
  • They could design it so the plywood sheets could slid in under the rear and front seats so they wouldn't need to extend the bed length to 8ft. Sort of like a Mother's attic that is found on UHauls only upside down.

    "Mother's Attic" yeah that's not weird at all.
  • Good luck cleaning that area out.

    Agree. or a FLIR Thermal Camera for driving in severe weather conditions.
  • I would love to see fold flat front seats, similar to what Ford is doing with their new F150.
  • I read recently that Elon said that the truck will be able to float for "a little while." Wouldn't it be cool if it could also function as a boat? They are seriously considering designing the back seat area to be able to fold down and open to the bed. Imagine driving into a lake to go fishing!

    I'm afraid that wouldn't work with the tonneau top retraction system. I'm hoping that the tonneau top rolls up under the rear seat instead of under the truck bed. I prefer this because I REALLY want a gooseball attachment in the bed and fear that if the tonneau stores under the bed there may not be enough heft to the truck bed to handle a 14k lb gooseneck trailer.
