Cybertruck's multiple wipers

The original design of the Cybertruck in 2019 did not include windshield wipers, but one had to be added to comply with US road-safety regulations. This modification was necessary to adhere to the rules governing vehicles on American roads.

One of the most notable features of Tesla's Cybertruck is its massive windshield wiper. Recent photos suggest that this wiper may actually be composed of multiple smaller wipers attached to one another. It appears that there are at least two wipers aligned in a row along the length of the Cybertruck's windshield. This arrangement could make it easier to replace the wipers, as it may be more convenient to obtain and install multiple regular-sized wipers rather than a single large custom one.

The Verge has published close-up photos revealing the potential presence of multiple wipers on the Cybertruck. These images have sparked speculation and discussion about the design and functionality of the wipers.

Initially, the Cybertruck's design did not incorporate windshield wipers. However, in order to comply with US road-safety regulations, a windshield wiper had to be added to the vehicle's features. When not in use, the wiper now rests vertically alongside the driver's side of the windshield.

Some images and videos of the Cybertruck's wiper in action suggest that it may not effectively clean the entire windshield. Reports indicate that a significant portion of the glass remains dusty and dirty after the wiper has passed over it.

The long-awaited release of the Cybertruck is scheduled for November 30th. At that time, the truth about the nature and performance of the enormous windshield wiper will finally be revealed.
