Watch Tesla Semi Windshield Wiper In Motion: Is One Wiper Sufficient?

The Tesla Semi is a mammoth automobile with an enormous panoramic windshield for unimaginable visibility. The tall, tinted glass wraps all the best way across the cabin with few apparent seams. Nevertheless, there’s solely a single windshield wiper, so folks might wonder if it may be sufficient.

With all of the discuss concerning the Tesla Cybertruck‘s windshield wiper, it is smart that somebody would seize footage of the Tesla Semi touring within the rain. Just like the Cybertruck, it might appear the Semi would want both an obnoxiously large wiper or a number of blades. Nevertheless, the manufacturing Tesla Semi solely has the “mono wiper,” because it appears can also be the case with the manufacturing Cybertruck, although we’ll have to attend and see.

Whereas one may assume the Tesla Semi’s single-wiper system might stand to enhance, that does not look like the case based mostly on latest driving footage shared within the r/TeslaMotors subreddit. Furthermore, although there have been numerous feedback from reported drivers of the Semi, we have not heard any information of a driver stating the windshield wiper is defective or ineffective.

As you possibly can see within the video under, a Frito-Lay Tesla Semi is out driving within the rain, and, as anticipated, its wiper is in motion.


To be honest, the video is brief, it isn’t straightforward to get a way of how heavy the rain is falling, and, in fact, we do not get the much-needed view from the within of the cabin looking. Nevertheless, with that stated, the individual taking the video is ready to get a pleasant clear shot from fairly shut, and you’ll see that the wiper clears a tall and extensive space of the windshield.

Now that we have seen the Tesla Semi’s wiper working within the rain, we have to see it dealing with ice and snow. It could even be improbable to get some video footage from the driving force’s perspective, too. 

Teslarati notes that mono wipers aren’t that widespread, although Tesla has chosen to make use of one for its Semi, and maybe its upcoming Cybertruck. CEO Elon Musk has made it clear that arising with a windshield wiper answer for the upcoming electrical pickup truck has actually been a problem, particularly because it’s necessary that it not solely performs properly in numerous climate situations, but additionally appears respectable.

One would suppose Tesla might use some variation of the Tesla Semi’s wiper system for the Cybertruck as properly. It would not look hideous, and it seems to operate higher than some of us might have anticipated.

What do you suppose? Will the Cybertruck have a single wiper blade? Will it comply with swimsuit with the Tesla Semi’s wiper? Go away us your ideas within the remark part under.
