Elon Musk told attendees that the Cyber ​​Rodeo he hosted at Tesla’s new factory in Austin, Texas would not have a strict door policy, and that could apply to the Tesla Cybertruck as well.

Elon Musk said the Cybertruck has no door handles and will know when you want to open it.

Musk took the latest prototype of the much-delayed electric pickup to the stage to show off some of its new features. That is, some features it no longer has.

Tesla has removed the handles from all of the vehicle’s stainless steel doors, which will now be able to open automatically.

“Who needs handles? The car can tell you’re there, and it just knows it needs to open,” Musk said without further explanation or demonstration.

The Tesla Model X can be set to open the driver’s door when someone approaches with the key fob, but it’s unclear how passenger doors will be handled on the Cybertruck.

In addition to the new entry system, the vehicle now features additional lighting closer to production specifications, more conventional wheels and a single large wiper blade.
