Tesla unveils Cybertruck with hiccup in presentation

Posted online

Tesla unveiled its new Cybertruck at a promotional event in Los Angeles, but things didn't go exactly as planned.

CEO Elon Musk asked Tesla's lead designer to throw a metal ball at one of the armored windows after claiming the car was "bulletproof" against a 9mm handgun.

“Oh my f------ God,” Musk exclaimed after the ball broke the glass. “Well, maybe that was a little too hard.”

The futuristic pickup truck will start at $39,900.
