This sought-after vehicle was long awaited by many of its fans since Musk introduced its production.
And while Musk said the window didn't shatter before, the audience wasn't clearly impressed by the failure that happened live on the stage. The website indicates that immediate payment of $100 is needed for the reservation of the Cybertruck. However, during the protest, Musk threw a metal ball at the window to display the "unbreakable" windows, but after a while, the window was actually broken, and that ## 147 ## It should not have been. Musk unveiled within the truck in a punk-present styled reveal occasion, exhibiting off the truck's stainless steel body and super-strong "armor glass" windows.
During the demonstration, Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla's chief designer, smashed the Cybertruck with a sledgehammer, which the truck withstood. The three models are separated into a single-motor RWD, dual-motor AWD, and tri-motor AWD.
As with its other models, Tesla gave Cybertruck some thoughtful goodies. Again, the ball cracked the glass pretty badly.
Musk then added, "We threw wrenches, we threw everything even literally the kitchen sink at the glass and it didn't break".
However, some analysts are concerned about the futuristic design, with Jessica Caldwell of Edmunds' vehicle marketplace saying: "It looks like a truck version of the DeLorean from Back To The Future".
The Cybertruck starts at $39,900 and are said to go 250 to 500 miles on one charge, depending on the model.
Tesla's share price has dropped by 6% since the market close yesterday, with CEO Elon Musk's net worth plummeting by $768 million in a single day.
"You know, I don't know if a lot of people will buy this pickup truck or not, but I don't care".
"We'll fix it in post", Musk promised after cursing at the mishap.
