    Wondering how functional this could be for construction. You need an overhead rack for lumber, ladders, pipe, conduit etc. Anyone know if this would be feasible? Underneath is not an option as it would kill your back. This needs to happen somehow or you have killed the first purpose of a pickup truck.

    I was thinking the same thing and came to the following conclusion Tesla truck.png . Based on my measurements you will be able to have a 8' extension ladder and 12' step and will result in very little drag. So it shouldn't effect range much if at all. Genius design IMO and the only way an electric vehicle will not be effect by drag.

    You need aftermarket accessories to put that stuff on a conventional pickup.........so you will need them with this too.

    There are many aftermarket rack companies for truck & vans. Won't be surprised if some of them already working on racks for the Cybertruck.

    Yes, I would hope so, but part of the issue is going to be all that glass overhead that can be broken so you might need a bottom liner on the rack. Also the auto cover would be useless.

    You miss watch the entire video? I highly doubt the glass will be braking on the final version
