Tesla is known for their innovation. When you think about Tesla the first thing that comes to mind are the nice, all- electric cars that you would love to have, but can't afford (at least that's what I think of).

Yesterday, Elon Musk unveiled the company's new all-electric and "bulletproof" Cybertruck. The exterior of the futuristic looking truck is made from the new stainless steel alloy that is used for SpaceX rockets. According to Musk, the alloy makes the car "literally bulletproof" against smaller firearms, including a 9 millimeter handgun. The windows are supposed to be unbreakable because they're made of metal glass, but during a demo that was not the case.

Musk asked a man to throw a metal ball at the Cybertruck to show how bulletproof it was, but the glass immediately shattered! It wasn't just a fluke, because Musk invited the man to throw the ball again, and this time the back window shattered. D'oh! To try to save face Musk kept saying, "It didn't go through. That's a plus side." Talk about embarrassing!  LOL

Watch the huge fail below. 

Are you wondering where the truck bed is and what the Cybertruck looks like inside? Here's a closer look.
