Cybertruck, the new and dazzling pickup from Tesla embarrassed Elon Musk last night, during his presentation. Minutes after Tesla's CEO claimed that his truck was "literally bulletproof" from 9mm guns, I tried to show that the armored glass windows were sturdy. The result was a disaster. The windows broke and Musk was dumbfounded.
"We created an exoskeleton – Musk told attendees at the launch in Los Angeles – It's literally bulletproof for a 9mm gun," he promised.
Then, Tesla's chief designer, Franz Von Holzhausen, asked if he could try to annihilate the Cybertruck by throwing a metal ball into one of the vehicle's windows. "Really?" Musk asked. Then, the window broke and, "Oh, my God," he murmured. "Well, maybe that was a bit hard." In a second attempt the back window also broke, but at least don't go through the window, he said. "There is room for improvement," he explained.
"We threw keys, we threw everything, we even literally threw the kitchen sink into the glass and it didn't break," Musk said. For some strange reason, it broke now. I don't know why, "Musk said.
Here the failed test of the new Cybertruck:
According to Musk, the Cybertruck is inspired by two of his favorite movies: in Blade Runner and in the angular design of the underwater car that James Bond used in The Spy Who Loved Me. And while the bulletproof test was a failure, the vehicle is not entirely built with conventional materials since it explained that it is made of the same stainless steel alloy Tesla used in the SpaceX Starship rocket. Being the ?official Mars road,? Musk said on Twitter.
Cybertruck will have a price starting at 39,900 dollars and there will be three different models. The most expensive model will be worth 69 thousand 900 dalres, and its production is expected to begin in late 2021.
