Earlier today, Tesla announced a new truck - the Cybertruck. However the grand unveiling has been a little overshadowed by one small hiccup.
Tesla announced that the new Cybertruck, where production should begin in late 2021 or early 2022. The truck has a steampunk look, and has been partly influenced by the Lotus Esprit sportscar that is well-know from James Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me, for doubling as a submarine.
This would be Tesla's first truck and, with CEO Elon Musk saying that this is "closer to an armored personnel carrier from the future" several months ago. He has a point as the Cybertruck does look like something from Back to the Future and, during the unveiling, a theatrical series of demonstrations attempted to demonstrate the vehicle’s durability with tests involving sledgehammers, a simulation of a 9mm bullet strike and hefty metal balls.
It was during one of these demonstrations where the hiccup happened. Trying one of the demonstrations to prove have difficult the truck was the break, a hefty metal ball was thrown at the glass, where it shattered. A second ball was thrown at the rear window, where it too shattered.
We are intrigued on your thoughts of this as the Internet has some very mixed opinions on this. Some people can't wait for Tesla to enter the pick-up market whereas others just can't get past the design.
Whatever your thoughts on the Cybertruck, please remember to drive safe, drive DGT.
