Elon Musk admits there is 'room for improvement' after Cybertruck launch

Elon Musk admitted Tesla's "cyberpunk" electric pickup truck had some "room for improvement" after its "armoured glass" shattered at its launch on Thursday (21.11.19).

The firm's billionaire CEO was no doubt left feeling a little red-faced after the official unveiling at the firm's SpaceX rocket factory in Los Angeles.

After Franz von Holzhausen, the head of design, the driver's window with a metal ball as part of a planned test, Musk admitted: "Oh my f***ing God, well, maybe that was a little too hard."

His colleague then smashed in another window, and he said: "It didn't go through, so that's a plus side."

Before he added that there was, "Room for improvement."

So far, the Cybertruck has received mixed reviews from critics and analysts.

Musk previously shared that the truck is inspired by the sci-fi classic 'Blade Runner', which happened to be set in November 2019 by sharing a video of the 1982 blockbuster's opening credits.

He added: "The date is strangely familiar ..."

The futurist vehicle has a range of between 400 and 500 miles from a single charge.
