Did you think the Tesla Cybertruck wasn’t an antenna? Simulation says otherwise – InsideEVs

Pickups are among the least aerodynamically efficient cars on the road, due in part to their large front area, straight-line design that combats wind as you drive along, and an open bed in the rear that makes matters worse. Tesla decided to make its pickup very funky and it looks like it could have also made the car more aerodynamic than conventional trucks, too.

This simulation that appeared on Reddit seems to indicate airflow around it Cybertruck body The speed is surprisingly smooth and it seems that there are no major points causing the disturbance. Interestingly, the simulator doesn’t seem to have a problem with the shape of the car’s roof, showing air passing over the edge surprisingly smoothly.

There is one point in the C-shaft that seems to cause more turbulence, and the pressure difference inside the wheel wells has an effect on airflow (although the latter is unavoidable on any vehicle and the only way to fix it is to coat the wheels and move them further inward).

The Tesla electronic truck A drag coefficient of about 0.39, which is good for a pickup, although not the best. This distinction is carried over to the Rivian R1T which has a drag coefficient of just 0.3 which makes it the slippery pickup and this contributes to the car’s good efficiency and impressive range.

If you compare 0.39 e-truck cd with what Tesla Model S Posted, no contest. In fact, the Model S with 0.208 Cd is nearly twice as aerodynamic as the truck, since the latter can’t escape its significantly larger front area, which is the main reason for its poorer CD number.

The D0 also noted that the Cybertruck model entered via the digital wind tunnel had no mirrors or windshield wipers and is known to have a significant negative impact on the aerodynamic vehicle.
