Such a statement, the head of an American company specializing in the production of electric cars, made in response to criticism of his new offspring.

The Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck, whose premiere Tesla fans have been looking forward to for several years, has sparked mixed reactions from the public. At the presentation, the electric car impressed those present with a rather simple and bold appearance, which many did not appreciate. In response to the attacks of those who found the design of the new pickup truck too primitive, Elon Musk promised to “improve it a bit” before Tesla Cybertruck goes into production. Musk wrote about this in his twitter account. Recall, the novelty will not be available on the assembly line until 2021, so Mask and his team have time.

Criticized not only the original appearance of the pickup truck, but also its design. Many found the all-metal body of an electric car unsafe for other cars in the event of an accident.

In the manufacture of the electric pickup, a special type of steel was used, characterized by high strength. Such material can be found in SpaceX space rockets. Such “armor”, according to the creators of Tesla Cybertruck, is able to withstand shots from firearms, as well as powerful blows with a sledgehammer.

 It is known that the pickup will enter the market in three versions that differ from each other in the number of engines: one, two or three. A single-engine pickup picks up 100 kph in 6.5 seconds, and a top pickup in just 2.9 seconds. The power reserve of the novelty is 400 – 800 kilometers.
