I was looking through some photos... Could these be mount points for roof racks or other accessories? If so, surprised to see this already in the first prototype.

Actually, we know at least one of them is a "button/switch" to open the bed cover, right? Could they also be buttons for opening the doors (would eliminate the need for the pop out door handles. And then maybe one to lower the tailgate?

The top button that looks like an aerial view of the vault is obviously for opening and closing that. The lower wedge shaped button is probably used to release the tailgate. The slot shape along the right edge seems to be a similar shape and size as the rooftop mounts so it's likely one of those. I'm hoping that Tesla or some third party will release a camper cap for this. I'm thinking hard sided, not the tent accessory that Tesla has already shown.

Looking forward to all the overlanding accessories for this truck. My wife already wants an Airstream behind this :eek: I was surprised she even knew what an Airstream was!
