Agreed. Another big help in the aero department is reduced cooling need, and therefore smaller grill opening. A huge source of drag on an ICE is cooling due to 70% of the energy being wasted heat.I'll hold off judgement on the cyber shape until I see solid numbers but I don't think it would take much to be the best aero of all the pickups. Half your battle is the tail.. and that half doesn't look too bad.
Cd describes the efficiency of the shape, but frontal area is the other half of the drag equation. Do we know how much frontal area this will have compared to typical trucks yet?
Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder. I agree that the H2 on are unattractive... but people seemed to like them more than an extreme boat-tail vehicle.Yeah! Who would want to drive something like this,
I mean they are hideous, like a bird or a fish, not beautiful like a dumpster.
Part of my rant about how awful the current fad of huge faux grills is to point out that radiators are designed to waste heat due to the inefficiency of ICE operation, and to exaggerate inefficiency is backwards thinking. I expect the minimal Tesla grill will become the new fad, as the huge exaggerated grills have been popular for quite a long time now.
