19. The Immense Windshield

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Cybertruck is its massive windshield. The truck is mostly made of glass and metal, and this creates an open-air feeling inside. Since the majority of Cybertruck owners will be taking them off-roading, the open-air feeling is a must. The windshield itself is quite massive to say the least, probably the biggest in the pickup truck class. The overall shape of the truck compensates for this in some aspects. You could almost say that the windshield is reminiscent of Chryslers “cab-forward” design scheme from the 90s. Obviously, the first fear that comes to mind with the windshield is the sun getting in the driver’s eyes.

But Tesla has assured potential Cybertruck buyers that the windshield will be coated with a sun reflector. As will the rest of the glass in the vehicle including the roof. This is good news because considering that the Cybertruck is made from hardened steel it could potentially feel like a tuna can in the heat of the summer. Luckily, Tesla has assured that the vehicle will also have an adequate AC system to keep things cool. Perhaps the worst part of this design might be trying to have someone replace the windshield after a crack or damage. That’s going to be a big and expensive job to complete.
