Tesla disclosed its modern pickup truck Thursday at a special occasion in Los Angeles. Yet, when it came to flaunting the vehicle’s solidness, things didn’t exactly go as arranged.
President Elon Musk asserted the vehicle was “bulletproof” against a 9mm handgun. In any case, when they got Tesla’s central originator to toss a metal ball at one of its defensively covered windows, perceptible amazement could be heard as the glass crushed — twice.
“Oh my f—— god,” Musk exclaimed when it first happened. “Well, maybe that was a little too hard.”
Configuration lead Franz Von Holzhausen gave it another shot, this time with another window. Once more, the ball split the glass pretty severely.
This was after the official had just taken a heavy hammer to the side of the truck, striking it on numerous occasions without leaving a scratch.
After the window stunt went amiss, Musk stated, drawing giggles: “We threw wrenches, we threw everything even literally the kitchen sink at the glass and it didn’t break. For some weird reason, it broke now. I don’t know why. We will fix it in post.”
It’s uncertain whether the windows should break in the manner that they did. In any case, it’s evident that Musk wasn’t anticipating it, in light of their response.
Known as the “Cybertruck,” the all-electric pickup is Tesla’s 6th vehicle since it was established in 2003. The vehicle’s value begins at $39,900.
Experts at Deutsche Bank said that the truck divulge left a great deal of unanswered inquiries.
“While the materials used appear robust, there could be questions about the truck’s durability when used under work conditions, especially in light of its seemingly unibody construction,” they said in an examination note.
“And the shattering of the truck’s unbreakable glass windows during the live demonstration was not a good start.”
This isn’t the main glass to give Tesla inconvenience. In 2016, Elon Musk divulged glass sun based rooftop tiles to rustle up help for the procurement of SolarCity by Tesla.
The Solarglass rooftop tiles are intended to be an engaging option in contrast to cumbersome sun oriented boards. Be that as it may, Tesla is still yet to mass-make its Solarglass.
