The Tesla Cybertruck has its side mirrors for protective purposes and, as required by law for motor vehicles, so that it can see the blind spots of the vehicle from other passing ones. However, it is one factor that several people do not like on the car, and CEO Elon Musk says that they are removable, but it has to be in the hands of the owner.
Tesla Cybertruck: Side Mirrors are Removable Says Elon Musk
A fan has asked the Tesla CEO about the design of the Cybertruck, particularly its hardware that is known to be essential to vehicles and is required by law to have one. The side mirrors appear as a sleek device, something that is needed when driving a car, but a user says that they are not "OK" with the equipment.
Here, according to the Techno King of Tesla, side mirrors are still required by law which is why it is there on the Cybertruck, but there is a hack if it bothers the owner for their preferences. Musk reveals that the side mirrors are removable and are optional to be used once the car is already at the hands of the respective owner.
However, it is quite noting that it is required by law to have one when driving around.

Side mirrors are a must for all vehicles, especially as they can tell drivers if there is a car passing by their left or right side when transferring lanes or parking. It is essential and needed by any vehicle, but times are changing, and owners are looking into more sleek designs.
