Elon Musk tweets new Cybertruck glass test video before Tesla event

Cybertruck armored glass, supposed to be unbreakable, was busted at the demo.

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.

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.”
