Tesla’s Armored Glass Failed, Windows Broke During Live Demonstration


January 23,2020

Tesla’s electric pickup truck’s unveiling went awry after the car’s armored “shatterproof” windows cracked during the live demonstration at a promotional event in Hawthorne, California on Thursday.

The car dubbed as “Cybertruck”, according to Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk, could survive a 9 mm handgun. However, the attempt to prove so failed miserably during the demonstration.

In an effort to demonstrate the car’s durability of its “Armor Glass” windows, Musk ordered Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla’s chief of design, to hit the driver’s side door with a sledgehammer, which did not make a dent.

However, the windows shattered when Musk asked Franz to throw a metal ball at the driver’s side window. “Oh my f****** god,” Musk said while laughing after the driver’s side window crashed. “Well, maybe that was a little too hard.”

Franz then threw another metal ball at the passenger window, which also broke. “It didn’t go through, so that’s a plus side. Room for improvement,” Musk joked.

“We threw wrenches, we threw everything. We even literally threw a kitchen sink at the glass, and it didn’t break. For a little weird reason it broke now, I don’t know why.”

However, Musk assured the live audience that Tesla would fix the problem “in post.”

As the event was live-streamed, the unexpected failure caught the attention of Twitter users who mocked the company’s Cybertruck.
