Tesla unveiled its Cybertruck pickup truck on Thursday. During the event, Tesla CEO Elon Musk suggested that the vehicle s window glass was stronger than that of a typical car. But two windows on the vehicle cracked after Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla s head of design, threw a metal ball at them. Here s how Musk reacted to the Cybertruck s glass cracking: Oh my f------ god, Musk said after von Holzhausen s first throw. Musk then said the throw may have been too hard and laughed, saying that, at the very least, the ball didn t go through the window.  Eh, not bad. Room for improvement, Musk joked after the second throw, which cracked the window behind the first one. Tesla had thrown wrenches and a sink at the glass used for the Cybertruck without breaking it, Musk said, before joking that the company would fix the video of the event in post-production. Tesla plans to begin production of the Cybertruck, which starts at $39,900, in late 2021. The vehicle s most expensive trim, which starts at $69,900, will have a maximum range of over 500 miles, a maximum towing capacity of over 14,000 pounds, and the ability to accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds, Tesla says.
