Elon Musk Explains Why Tesla’s Cybertruck Windows Cracked During Presentation

Tesla CEO took to Twitter Monday to offer an explanation for why the windows on his supposedly impregnable Cybertruck cracked during a now-infamous presentation, The Verge reports. Musk says that right before lead designer Franz von Holzhausen threw the metal balls that cracked the truck’s windows, he had smacked the door with a sledgehammer on stage to prove its durability, which Musk says cracked the base of the glass and lead to the subsequent cracking. The billionaire CEO also shared a new slow-motion video of von Holzhausen again throwing the metal balls at the windows, and this time, the windows held. Musk also said that the failed test has done nothing to hurt interest in the futuristic-looking vehicle, claiming that the company already has 200,000 preorders for it as of Monday morning, “with no advertising & no paid endorsement.”<br />
