Tesla unveiled a new vehicle on thursday, which is equipped with non-scratchable sheet metal and armoured glass. The Cybertruck goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a pulling power of 6350 kg. There will be three versions, with 400, 500 and 800 kilometres of range. The prices of the version with the largest range start at about $40,000. The Cybertruck offers space for six passengers and has a large 17 inch touchscreen in the front. The first Cybertrucks have to roll off the conveyor belt by the end of 2021. Elon Musk wants to turn the traditional world of large pick-ups upside down. According to Tesla top man Elon Musk, there’s no way to “scratch the car.” He calls the Cybertruck the “official vehicle of Mars”. According to Musk, the design was inspired by the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me.
Demonstration ‘armoured glass’ glass failed
During the presentation Musk wanted to show how indestructible his truck is. He demonstrated this by having an employee hit the car with a demolition hammer. The Cybertruck remained intact. The demonstration of the ‘armoured glass’ went less smoothly though. An employee caused a big crack when he threw a big bullet against a window. A second attempt also went wrong. Musk said, “There’s a point of improvement there.”
