The Cybertruck is a pick-up truck, a cornerstone of motoring in the United States, but looks more like an etch-a-sketch drawing of the Delorian from Back To The Future. Instead, it resembles a beastly, revamped DeLorean or something out of an 80s sci-fi movie.
The futuristic-looking vehicle will be released at the end of 2021, and with a range of up to 500 miles.
Broadcasting on a livestream, Musk talked about how strong the new Tesla was and was joined on stage by Franz von Holzhuasen, Tesla's chief designer, wielding a metal ball. An extra with a sledgehammer couldn't dent the truck's door, but a similar test of its "armor glass" went awry when two windows badly cracked after a steel ball was thrown at them.

Costello's career totals in the minors include a.256 batting average with 43 home runs and 163 RBIs in 280 games. The organization also tweeted out, "We are saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Ryan Costello ".
The six-seater vehicle marks the first foray by Tesla, whose Model 3 sedan is the world's top-selling battery electric auto, into utes - a market dominated in the United States by the Ford F-150, along with models by General Motors and Chrysler.
While it looks quite unusual (beautiful or ugly depending on your preferences), the Cybertruck exterior is manufactured from ultra-hard 30x cold-rolled monochrome stainless steel. The broken glass was unpredictable.
The angular, nearly jarring design of the vehicle has caught many by surprise, even after Musk had warned in advance that many would not like how the pickup truck looked. There has, to date, been little overlap between full-size pickup truck buyers and Tesla buyers. Musk ranked 24th. Rivian's trucks will cost tens of thousands of dollars more then Tesla's, but they will look far more like trucks.
Tesla dominates the global electric vehicle market and has an especially firm grip on the United States, where pick-ups are particularly popular. If you're anxious if the newbies will be tough enough for you, Rivian says its truck will be able to pull up to 11,000 pounds, and the SUV will able to tow up to 7,700 pounds, and will have a range of 400 miles per charge. "Guess we have some improvements to make before production", Musk wrote.
