Cybertruck CFD :Justin W. Martin

InsideEVs.com offers Justin W. Martin's CFD analysis of Cybertruck.As the actual parametrics of Cybertruck are yet to be available,Mr. Martin is conservative in not offering a drag coefficient which would only approximate what will be revealed later,as Tesla publishes with the SAE next year,and at the corporate website.Details,at full-scale,are necessary for an accurate portrayal of a vehicle.The full Navier-Stokes equation software necessary to 'solve' the aerodynamics of Cybertruck remains within the domain of supercomputers.
Vehicles which populate the field of vehicles sharing the external architecture of Cybertruck,in the aggregate,would render flow characteristics which resonate closely with what Mr. Martin's images depict.I wasn't able to 'build' Cybertruck with a Cd above 0.275,in its 'mirror-less' configuration.

The surprise I got when first seeing the Cybertruck reminded me of the first time I saw a stealth airplane's Batmanesque shape.

It will be interesting to see how things play out for our out-of-the-box pickup truck, not only Cd wise, but also other performance parameters, customer acceptance, and etc.

Insufficient data. Could you provide a publication date?

I GOOGLED 'Cybertruck aerodynamics videos,' and it was the fifth down from the top.
