The long-awaited debut of the Cybertruck is just around the corner (hopefully), but there are still things we don’t know about the truck.

However, after the latest spotting, keen-eyed fans have noticed something interesting.

Ordinarily, most trucks come with roof-mounted bars, and that was the case with the Cybertruck as well.

But this time around, a Cybertruck Owners Club member was able to photograph a release candidate (RC) unit with four distinct mounting locations for these accessories.

This would probably help in case you want to carry longer or heavier items on the roof.

However, due to the Cybertruck’s unique shape, a few questions about this new design feature remain unanswered.

The roof is a key feature of the truck and because of its quirky design, the Cybertruck looks like no other vehicle.

Normally, you’ve got the truck roof and the truck bed on two different levels, and they’re not attached.

In the Cybertruck, however, the bed cover is directly attached to the roof, so perhaps that’s also part of the reason why Tesla fitted four bars.

For better or worse, there’s no other truck like the Cybertruck.

Partly because of the ground-breaking design but also because of what it can do.

For example, no other CEO has literally fired bullets at its company’s truck to prove it’s bulletproof.

Then again everyone knows Musk, and everybody knows the CEO of Tesla is everything but conventional.

The bad news is we don’t a delivery date yet.

The really bad news is we don’t know the price, either.

And unfortunately, as Musk himself confirmed, it’ll likely be a lot more expensive than we’d like it to be.
