i believe it is the molded-in-color non-removeable top
No way! Look how it over hangs outside the window frame... Chunky
And how it comes up to the windshield frame...
Maybe... I dunno. Doesn't look right for a non removable roof. If it is, I'll pass on it.
This pic is what I believe to be non removable roof.

pretty sure they'll all be remove-able. Where is a rumor for a non remove-able roof coming from, or am I misreading what you are saying?

If it's a non removable roof, why is it composite and not painted with the rest of the truck?

Which also begs the question... Will on non removable roof have a roll cage? Likely not I'm guessing...
And probably a chunk cheaper than any of the other roof options. But in what trim? All trims?
Probably the route is go... Fixed roof

I think the rollbar/frame will be the same on all of them. just a matter of what top is over it. It would make the most production sense to do it that way.

I just hope it is possible to remove it. I really want a truly open air like the EB, with a simple rollbar right behind the seat.

This makes sense... As even the fixed roof is molded plastic 👍🏼

This is the first I'm hearing about a permanent, fixed, non-removable roof???
In the options leak list... That's how I interpret it anyway.
Hard Top, Carbonized Gray Molded-in-Color (MIC)
All the other tops are listed as dual top or modular top.

Yes, all models will have the roll cage, the lawyers and regulations require it.

A composite roof will last for about 1 millisecond in a rollover.
