The glass thing was a brilliant marketing ploy.

Had it not happened, they would've reached an audience of maybe a million, but with glass thing they reached a billion.

There's no such thing as bad publicity.

Hats off to Tesla marketing.

Why in heaven's name do you need unbreakable windows? You can get trapped inside. Not good if battery catches fire?

It does sort of resemble a coffin on wheels.

Why in heaven's name do you need unbreakable windows? You can get trapped inside

Have you ever tried breaking a regular car window?

Not easy. Not like the TV where a well placed elbow can break a window. I was jump kicking a car window one time, at the peak of my physical fitness, and ended up giving up in futility. You’re trapped even in a car with regular windows.

Placing an order costs buyers $100, which Tesla says is fully refundable.

You can order one if you have freed times and extra $ 100. You can boast your friend about you bought one of Cybertruck. Also, Eon Musk can tell his investors, he took orders and sold 146,000 Cybertruck in within minutes. Later they will ask refund $ 100 and cancel the order. I bet he won't sell a single truck when the Tesla asked payment $39,900 for the its Cybertruck.

I’ll wager that more than 90% of those orders are from wealthy suburbanites who will most likely never drive a vehicle off road, and consider a drive to Griffith Park to be an “outdoor adventure.”

Do you mean the same way he hasn't sold a single car that costs even more? Yeah, you're probably right.

Maybe in a country with 40000 deaths per year by gun violence..

You can break one easily by using an emergency window breaker.

I keep one in my car just in case.

In the recent typhoon disasters at lest 10 people died because they couldn't escape from their cars because loss of power means not being able to open the windows. Probably don't want unbreakable windows and keep a window breaking tool in your car.
