Tesla’s Cybertruck has long been hailed as a rugged vehicle capable of enduring the toughest conditions. With its touted armored glass, designed to withstand even class-4 hail, the Cybertruck exudes resilience.

However, a recent hailstorm in Austin shattered the expectations of one Cybertruck owner. Despite its touted durability, the Cybertruck’s windshield succumbed to the onslaught of hail, leaving the owner disheartened.

This incident echoes a notorious moment during the Cybertruck’s revealing, where Tesla’s chief designer showcased its armored glass, only to have it unexpectedly crack upon impact. Despite subsequent demonstrations and real-life experiments, including thwarting a burglary attempt, the Cybertruck’s durability remains under scrutiny.

In the case of the Austin hailstorm, the Cybertruck’s stainless steel body fared well, but its windshield bore the brunt of the damage. Whether due to its horizontal positioning or inherent structural tensions, the windshield’s vulnerability was exposed, prompting a significant repair bill for the owner.
