Cybertruck Windshield Wiper Elon Musk wrote on Twitter: “The wiper is what troubles me most.”
Some speculated that Tesla would employ “air windshield wipers.”
Or, some absurdly farfetched notions reached the idea of a special, “laser windshield wiper.” But, we are kidding, the laser wiper is actually a Tesla patent. Tesla originally file the patent in 2019, the laser system cleans debris from windshields and other glass surfaces.

Now it has leaked that Tesla is using a massive windshield wiper for the new Cybertruck.
A wiper this large is going to have serious reliability and maintenance issues, without a doubt.
Will this be the final wiper configuration for the Cybertruck?
Moreover, Elon Musk further just tweeted on the wiper situation:
“No easy solution. Deployable wiper that stows in front trunk would be ideal, but complex.”
Will Musk give us more guidance and clarity on the Cybertruck during his January investor’s annual meeting?
We know there will be more changes as Musk told investors, “There will be a few tweaks before production.”
Tesla is sitting on a backlog of over $80 billion of Cybertruck orders, representing over 1.2 million units.
Consumers are dying to touch a piece of automotive future. Musk has tweeted about the Cybertruck’s potential: “Cybertruck will reach far into a post-apocalyptic future & bring that technology to now.”
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for my Cybertruck delivery! But, in the meantime I might need to consider a Rivian R1T?
The world is certainly waiting for the release of the Cybertruck!
