Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, shared a tweet showing Cybertruck glass test video with a steel ball thrown on it. In the twenty-second video, Franz von Holzhausen, the Chief Designer of Tesla is shown throwing the ball on the side window of the truck.
Tesla’s all-electric battery-powered Cybertruck was launched in a ceremony on Thursday faced a twist when, while showing the glass strength, the test failed. The glass was smashed twice as Franz hit it with the steel ball.
Here is the video of the glass demo turned funnier from the launch event:
Musk also hinted plans of using a solar roof in the future of Cybertruck models which can help to add up the energy of 15 miles a day usage to make trucks more self-powered. He tweeted: “[In future Cybertrucks there] will be an option to add solar power that generates 15 miles per day, possibly more. Would love this to be self-powered. Adding fold out solar wings would generate 30 to 40 miles per day. Avg miles per day in US is 30.”
