Tesla’s ‘Cybertruck’

Tesla’s ‘Cybertruck’

A recent Times article reports:

Elon Musk on [Nov. 21] unveiled the “Cybertruck,” an electric pickup truck that Tesla hopes will rival Ford’s best-selling F-150 line.

Its design ensured it would certainly stand out on the road. Looking little like traditional pickup trucks, the Cybertruck has a stainless steel exterior with a triangular roof.

But its introduction at an event in Los Angeles didn’t quite go as planned. During a demonstration of the truck’s toughness, its designer lobbed a metal ball at one of its windows, unexpectedly cracking it. He tried again on another window, which also cracked.

What do you think of the Cybertruck’s design? (For an added challenge, try using a metaphor or simile to describe what it looks like to you.)

If you had the money (starting at $39,000), would you buy one? Do you think other people will?
