Tesla Cybertruck has arrived

This appears to be good news for all four automakers looking to carve out a touch of market share. But none of this will arrive until at least 2021, and by then, the industry and the trucks themselves could look different. This is the start of a new battle for consumers. Instead of a separate cab and bed, the body appears to be a single form.

The exterior is made from a developed stainless steel alloy, the same metal that’s used for SpaceX rockets, Musk said. That alloy enables the car to be bulletproof against at least smaller firearms, including 9-mil glitter handguns, Musk said. A man with a sledgehammer hit the sides of the truck without damaging it. But a demonstration of the truck’s unbreakable metal glass windows backfired when a metal ball thrown at the windows did break them. But it went poorly, and Musk pointed out.
