Tesla Cybertruck: Includes Better Utility than a Truck & More Performance than a Sports Car
The world knows that there’s no better real-life showman than Elon Musk. And, the Tesla CEO proves it on the stage while unveiling the Cybertruck. While demonstrating the truck’s ruggedness, Musk shares the stage with Tesla’s chief of design Franz von Holzhausen. He claimed that the truck is practically bulletproof. To clarify, he hits the door of the truck several times with a sledgehammer. Moreover, the company claims that Cybertruck wins a tug-of-war with a Ford F150 and a drag race with Porsche 911.
