Elon Musk says Cybertruck is ‘the finest in apocalypse defense technology’ after thieves try their best to break in

  • The robbers initially attempted to unlock the truck by using a device.
  • Despite the break-in attempt the armored glasses were only slightly cracked
  • Quite an improvement from the 2019 steel ball durability test.

It seems that Tesla has made the Cybertruck secure enough to survive even in the apocalypse, at least according to Elon Musk.

The vehicle has proven itself to be quite secure time and time again.

Even recently, a group of thieves tried to break into the vehicle but to no avail.

Tesla owner and content creator, Arash Malek, posted a video on X of an attempted robbery of his friend’s Cybertruck.

The video was shot through the car’s side camera, in which a man can be seen trying to break into the vehicle.

The Sentry Mode footage of the incident showed the man jumping out of a car and attempting to steal the truck but to no avail.

Eventually, the video caught the attention of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who tweeted that Cybertruck is “the finest in apocalypse defense technology.”

The Tesla Cybertruck, which now comes in five different color wraps, is equipped with armored glass windows and bulletproof doors.

Initially, the robbers tried to use a device to unlock the vehicle’s encryption.

However, when that failed, the would-be thief got desperate and tried to break the vehicle’s glass roof. 

In the video, the man can be seen trying his best to break in – even jumping on the roof to break the glass.

Unfortunately for them, the armored glass withstood the assault and managed to come out with only a few scratches and cracks.

The toughness of the Cybertruck armored doors has already been proven before.

One man even went as far as driving the truck into deep waters to test the vehicle’s ‘Wade Mode’.

However, it is quite ironic that the truck is now being praised for the durability of its windows.

Previously, it became the source of memes and jokes in 2019 after its steel ball durability demonstration cracked the Cybertruck’s armored windows.
