Tesla's Cybertruck Looks Like Nothing Else On the Road

Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the Tesla Cybertruck in Hawthorne, California last night.

The angular vehicle aimed to reimagine the pickup truck for the 21st century.The electric vehicle works as a cold rolled steel exoskeleton rather than relying on the traditional flatbed design.

In performance tests for both towing capacity and acceleration, it outperformed a Ford F-150 and Porsche 911, even with advantages and slight head starts given to the other vehicles.While the skin, as Musk refers to outside of the car, held up impressively and showed zero signs of impact after taking hits from a sledgehammer and even remained unscathed after being shot by 9 millimeter bullets, there were some hiccups.The transparent metal material used in the Cybertruck's window held up fine to multiple impacts from a metal ball being dropped when a panel was tested against regular car glass.

But when the Tesla team tried the same by throwing the ball at the windows of the finished Cybertruck on stage, the window broke.

Twice.Musk laughed off the incident and was still able to round out his presentation by unveiling one more surprise, a Tesla ATV, which can be driven directly onto the back of a Cybertruck for transport.Cybertruck vehicle ranges will vary between 150 miles and 500 miles depending on the model.The electric vehicle works as a cold rolled steel exoskeleton rather than relying on the traditional flatbed design.
