The Tesla Cybertruck’s wedge-shaped design has been controversial, but the electric truck’s virtually indestructible exoskeleton is undeniably impressive. During a live demonstration, the stainless steel body didn’t dent when it was pummeled with a sledgehammer. The same couldn’t be said for the “unbreakable” armored glass, though, which shattered after a steel ball was thrown at the window.
According to Tesla, the Cybertruck’s exterior is made out of Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel – the same material used by SpaceX. In its range-topping Tri-Motor configuration, the Tesla Cybertruck will have around 800 horsepower and 1000 lb-ft of torque on tap, enabling it to hit 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and tow up to 14,000 pounds. Its high performance, imposing shape, and tough exterior could make it an ideal police vehicle.
