Tesla Cybertruck Debuts With Sci-Fi Personality And Gobs Of Power

Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed an absurd, futuristic, brutalist electric pickup called Cybertruck to the world, I pulled myself up into its passenger seat. A Tesla employee then took me and three others for a short joy ride down a temporarily closed-off road that lines one side of SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said the pickup will be big — big enough that the late, great Andre the Giant could drive it. He's also said it will be powerful, futuristic, and relatively affordable.

When the truck initially drove onto the stage, many in the crowd clearly couldn't believe that this was actually the vehicle they'd come to see. 스포츠토토 The Cybertruck looks like a large metal trapezoid on wheels, more like an art piece than a truck.

Instead of a distinctly separate cab and bed, the body appears to be a single form. The exterior is made from a newly developed stainless steel alloy, the same metal that's used for SpaceX rockets, Musk said. That alloy enables the car to be "literally bulletproof" against at least smaller firearms, including 9-millimeter handguns, Musk said.

A man with a sledgehammer hit the sides of the truck without damaging it. But a demonstration of the truck's supposedly unbreakable metal glass windows backfired when a metal ball thrown at the windows did, in fact, break them.

"But it didn't go through, " Musk sheepishly pointed out.

Musk spent months telling everyone that Tesla’s first electric pickup truck would look like something out of Blade Runner. And yet, for a brief moment after the truck appeared onstage, the entire room — one full of Tesla customers and fans from all around the world — fell practically silent in disbelief.
