The updated Tesla Parts Catalog now features the newly unveiled Cybertruck, giving an insightful peek into the design and pricing of key components for this all-electric pickup. Cybertruck Owner’s Club members have noted surprisingly reasonable prices for primary parts. For instance, a glimpse at the catalog reveals that each front fender costs around $550—a fairly modest price given the vehicle's substantial size. Moreover, repairing a damaged fender might not break the bank, as the Cybertruck's paintless design could potentially lower associated labor costs.
Certain Cybertruck components pose expensive repair challenges. Take, for instance, the colossal windshield glass, priced at $1,900, seemingly reasonable on its own. Yet, given the specialized equipment likely needed for Cybertruck windshield repairs due to its sheer size, the total expense for a replacement would likely exceed the initial $1,900 part cost.
The Cybertruck's front steering actuator, priced at $3,300, stands out as another costly component. Reviewers have praised the Cybertruck's steer-by-wire system, yet the Parts Catalog reveals a significant price tag attached to this feature. Ideally, this steering actuator proves durable enough to endure the vehicle's entire lifespan. On a lighter note, observers in the Tesla community have begun teasing the Cybertruck's oversized wiper blade, priced at $75.
In addition to divulging the prices of Cybertruck components, the Parts Catalog dropped hints about undisclosed features from the electric vehicle manufacturer. Notably, the Cybertruck's heated front bumper camera is anticipated to enhance performance for features like Autopilot and Full Self-Driving in wintry conditions. Furthermore, the rear middle seat boasts a fold-down function, unveiling a unique set of "cyber" designed cupholders.
Tesla appears to have integrated intriguing easter eggs into the Cybertruck. Notably, examining the closure panels on the vehicle's rear unveils a distinct Cybertruck outline subtly imprinted by Tesla. This hidden gem is poised to be a delightful discovery for Cybertruck owners as they explore their vehicles.
