At a promotional event in Los Angeles, Musk unveiled the trapezoid-shaped vehicle.
Tesla showed how much abuse the truck could take – striking it with a sledgehammer.
Musk even claims the vehicle can withstand a nine millimeter bullet.
The company even wanted to show how strong the windows in the Cybertruck are, but that didn’t go quite as planned.
Musk quipped – ‘well, it didn’t go through.’
The experimental vehicle is entering a marketplace dominated by the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado.
Models range from the $40,000, two-wheel drive that goes 250 miles on a charge to the $70,000, all-wheel drive vehicle that can go 500 miles on a single charge.
Production of the Cybertruck is expected to begin in late 2021
