Challenging the Cybertruck has been somewhat of a trend since its late 2023 launch.

And it seems to be withstanding whatever people throw at it.

This time, it’s driving through water so deep that many have questioned the video’s authenticity.

Elon Musk broke a window at the prototype stage – something that its creators have since poked fun at with a window décal.

Others have also fired weapons at it, hit it with baseball bats, and attempted to break in.

But it seems the Tesla Cybertruck is pretty much impenetrable – so much so that even water can’t get in.

Check out the incredible footage above.

While we’ve seen it take to the water in the past, the quasi-amphibious EV pickup has never been in water this deep before.

Posted to Teslaconomics, it’s captioned: “The Cybertruck doing what Moses did to the Red Sea.”

The video sees the Tesla Cybertruck being driven back and forth through a deep body of water.

As it comes almost up to the windows and splashes far higher cries of ‘oh my goodness, bro’ and ‘that’s crazy’ can be heard.

Water can also be heard sloshing from inside the cabin.

Some in the comments section labeled it the ‘leak test’.

Last year, Musk claimed Tesla Cybertruck would be ‘waterproof enough’ to do exactly this.

The CEO added that the goal is for a Cybertruck to be able to cross the water between SpaceX’s Starbase and South Padre Island in Texas.

That’s about 360 meters (1,100 feet).

We have been taking the Cybertruck more seriously with water since we learned that Tesla built a ‘wade mode’ for the truck to be able to go into the water.

Tesla says the mode increases the ride height to the max and ‘pressurizes the battery pack.’
