Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to critics on Saturday by posting a pre-launch video that shows the front window of the Cybertruck remaining intact after a steel ball impact.
Franz throws steel ball at Cybertruck window right before launch. Guess we have some improvements to make before production haha. pic.twitter.com/eB0o4tlPoz— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 23, 2019
Interesting that at 00:11 you can see that the door is unlatched, allowing it to absorb the impact.— "Elon Says" (@ElonBachman) November 23, 2019
Also interesting that the b pillar trim is removed and there's glass on the floor.
You sure you took this video before, not after?
For people saying it wasn't thrown hard enough,what would have been adequate? 100mph thrown by a pro pitcher? Should they have launched it out of a railgun? Is it not good enough unless it can survive a direct hit from an ICBM? Everything that's something-resistant, has limits.— Dawngkey Kawng (@LavenderLung) November 23, 2019
