Cybertruck vs. a baseball bat, watch who wins the battle of dents and bents



Tesla Cybertruck owners and their friends are on a mission to test the toughness of the truck to any possible extent.

After recently jumping on the Cybertruck windshield, a new group of Cybertruck enthusiasts beat it with a baseball bat. They also posted a video of this event online that shows two adult men trying their best to put a dent into the Cybertruck’s body.

No visibly significant damage could be seen on the Cybertruck after it received harsh blows on its door panels. But interestingly, the baseball bat was the one that failed in this test as its handle was bent after the beating.

This is possibly an ultimate durability test for any car or pickup truck that no production vehicle can pass except for the Cybertruck. Tesla Cybertruck is made of 30x cold-rolled stainless steel alloy. The automaker hasn’t shared the specific chemistry of this alloy but it’s strong enough to bear hits from a baseball bat or even a hammer.

At the first unveiling event of the Cybertruck in 2019, Tesla’s Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen demonstrated the durability of the Cybertruck by hitting it with a sledgehammer (pic above). But this live testing became the prelude to the most viral event in automotive history — the breaking of the Cybertruck glass in front of a large global audience and press.

Hitting the Cybertruck with a sledgehammer or a baseball bat might not hurt the body itself but it surely can damage the systems inside such as the glass assembly, motors, and sensors. So, never try it on your own Cybertruck — ever!
