Fast technology September 11 news, for Musk, the rearview mirror really should not appear on Tesla.

Recently, some netizens spoke on social media, and Musk also reiterated his view that Tesla wants to kill the rearview mirror, as for when it has not been said, but it must be done.

Similar remarks, Musk has previously said that the rearview mirror in the car driving process, will produce wind resistance, so that electric vehicles to reduce the endurance of up to 5%, this is redundant and stupid design, automatic driving to develop mature, this design is to be completely abandoned.

According to Musk's theory, the development of future cars will not require rear-view mirrors.


When Tesla's Model X SUV debuted, it was radical, eliminating the traditional rearview mirror and replacing it with a tiny camera that captured images displayed on an electronic touch screen in the cabin. In 2019, the Tesla Cybertruck also doesn't have a rear-view mirror.

Tesla is far from alone in this belief. Volkswagens XL1, Lexus ES, and Hyundai IONIQ 6 all follow this idea.

For car manufacturers, lower wind resistance means better battery life, especially in the era of electric vehicles, the battery life problem has not been fundamentally solved, and the cancellation of the traditional rearview mirror is one direction.
