T​he now infamous moment of Tesla's chief designer chucking a steel ball at Tesla's new pickup truck window, and it subsequently breaking has gone viral. However, to dispel any neigh-sayers Elon Musk has tweeted out a video of the window not breaking.

T​his video was taken right before the unveiling of Tesla's radical new Cybertruck. The new window design is meant to be truly indestructible, even when met with a steel ball flying through the air. However, when it came time to demo this new feature onstage it didn't go exactly to plan.

A​s Tesla's chief design Franz Von Holshouzen hurled the steel ball at the truck's window it left quite the mark. However, as we can see in the video that Musk tweeted out that same truck survived the test with ease. The billionaire CEO then joked that "Guess we have some improvements to make before production haha".

I​t's hard to tell why the truck's windows shattered onstage, however, the original impact shared by Musk surely would not have helped the structural integrity of those new windows. That being said, it is certain that this issue will be fixed by the time production starts in 2021.

  • When the tesla autopilot crashes the truck, and you get stuck in it, enjoy that shatter proof glass. Especially when emergency responders can't just break a window to get you out. So now you're stuck in a rapidly burning car, that isn't easily put out, while it takes much longer to get you out with the jaws of life or other heavy equipment.

    It's a recipe for tragedy, all because Elon decided it'd be cool to have bulletproof windows on his Lego car.

  • I’m confused. I have a 1992 f150. I have never broken my window in 498,000 miles.

    Why does a truck need bulletproof windows.

    Safety glass is perfect.

    • It’s called free advertising, without spending a dime on brand-awareness Tesla is immediately associated with high end electric cars
