Since last month’s launch of the Tesla Cybertruck, this is the second shameful event. The first happened during the launch event when two windows of the truck were broken with a steel ball, where the presentation failed showing how hard the glass is.
Mr. Musk stated after the first window smashed “oh my f******” god”, “Well, maybe that was a little too hard.”
Moreover, a demonstration of the “literally bulletproof” door panels with the excessively tough steal which has the ability to confront many blows from a sledgehammer was victorious and no visible damage appeared.
Additionally, there was no visible damage that appears on the Cybertruck after smashing into the bollard.
Blade Runner artistic director Syd Mead said that the innovative design was “stylistically breathtaking.” Nevertheless, many people think that the design of the Cybertruck may cause risks to the other road users.
According to James Goodwin, the Cheif Executive of Australian car safety rating organization ANCAP the V-shaped design was “fairly cruel.” And didn’t have
“a whole lot of areas that would offer some give if there was a strike with a pedestrian”.
In a talk with Australian media, he added,
“We do both head form and leg form effects… the [frontal area] would appear like it’s not very forgiving in terms of legs.”
