Tesla Cybertruck Unveil: What we Can Expect from It

Tesla finally presented the so expected Cybertruck to the world. Elon Musk jumped into the stage with a very futuristic intro to show up what has been teased as the most revolutionary product released by the manufacturer.

"Very" Futuristic Design

Although I wasn't impressed when I initially saw it (as most of the internet is at the moment of writing) I'm kind of getting used to it. I think it is part of any revolutionary product release: we are used to patterns and this is nothing like something I've seen before.

Elon Musk mentioned that 1,534,974 trucks were sold in 2018 only in the U.S. and these rank as the top 3 selling vehicles there. Here in Canada, numbers are slightly above the 250,000 but pickups are the #1 top-selling vehicles.

The new cybertrucks features an "ultrahard 30X" Stainless Steel. It is actually the same alloy used on Space X rockets. Elon Musk presented it A truck that doesn't scratch, dent and also can hold a bullet with the 9mm "Metal Jacket". A door got hit twice with a hammer and nothing happened. On the other hand, transparent metal glass windows were also tested using a metal ball from lots of different angles. First on a test glass that went great and later on the demo vehicle, both windows unexpectedly smashed.

Some other additional details:
