Advanced Cybertruck feature has left people confused

  • The latest Cybertruck feature is quite advanced, and not many vehicles use it
  • It’s like a sensor, but ten times more technical
  • The only issue is people aren’t sure what it’s for

Advanced Cybertruck feature has left people confused

The Cybertruck is already the most talked about vehicle of the year 2024.

The year has barely even started, but people are already flooding the internet with comments and questions.

The latest feature we found, courtesy of The Cybertruck Guy on X, is a little confusing.

The Cybertruck comes with an optional extra, a radar, to detect seat occupancy.

The picture Cybertruck Guy shared on X shows the dashboard of a Cybertruck showing which seats are occupied and which aren’t.

“Why is this necessary and what benefits it provides over seat sensors?” the caption reads.

Good question, and it seems X users have already found answers.

“[It is designed] to better detect the size and shape of the occupants so as to optimize the deployment airbags during a crash. Next level safety is what Tesla does,” one user commented.

“[It is] detect real people and not just weight,” another X user said.

“The sensor can detect ‘life signatures’ like if a person stops breathing, the car will know,” a third commenter wrote.

This is yet another Cybertruck feature that was never mentioned.

A lot of things have been said about the truck but most of it was rumor, and a lot of features, or absence thereof, has never been addressed.

For example, the six-seat layout from the original concept is gone, and no one ever explained why.

Although some speculate it may have to do with safety.

On the upside, after the long-awaited launch, we found out the Cybertruck is even faster than we thought.

It is so fast in fact it can beat a Porsche 911 in a drag race while towing a Porsche 911.

The bad news is it’s expensive, nowhere near as affordable as we first hoped.

Musk himself was forced to retract his initial statement that the truck would cost around $40,000.

He said it would be difficult to make it cheap, and he wasn’t lying.

With all the bells and whistles, a fully loaded Cybertruck can easily end up costing $120,000.
