Watch how the Tesla Cybertruck takes on the Compound Bow Digital trends

Joe tries to fire an arrow into the cyber truck

Tesla CEO Elon Musk made another appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience on Tuesday.

Swapping the weed he smoked on Joe Rogan’s previous appearance for cigarettes and drinks, Musk covered a wide range of topics during the 2 hour and 40 minute interview.

The host thanked Musk for his presence at Cybertruck, which will debut to paying customers on November 30.

Pointing to its unique design, Musk said the all-electric pickup actually looks like computer graphics, to which Rogan responded that it’s the coolest-looking production car ever made.

Notably, the Tesla boss said there will be a Beast Mode version of the Cybertruck with a 0-60 time of under three seconds, adding that it offers additional features but that he wants to save them for the November launch event.

During his talk, Musk also confirmed that the Cybertruck will come with bulletproof steel panels and optional bulletproof glass, but he added that the design and thickness of the glass means the side windows won’t open.

As Musk explained how the panels had already been tested using a Tommy gun, a 45mm rifle and a 9mm rifle, Rogan wondered if they would be strong enough to withstand an arrow fired from an 80 compound bow. Will a pound be fired or not? Musk bet him a dollar to do it, so the pair headed to the Cybertruck to test it out.

Rogan fired the arrow at close range, but instead of punching a hole in the side of the Cybertruck, the projectile only made a small dent, enabling Musk to put a dollar in his piggy bank.

When Rogan asked why he designed the Cybertruck that way, Musk said, “Trucks are supposed to be tough, right?”

This comment is for those who remember the embarrassing incident that happened during the Cybertrax unveiling in 2019, when a metal ball smashed through the Cybertrax window in a demonstration meant to highlight the toughness of the glass. Musk later claimed that an earlier stress test had weakened the window.

Tesla’s CEO recently said the automaker aims to produce 250,000 Cybertrucks a year, but added that it’s unlikely to reach that number after 2024.

Tesla has reportedly received about two million orders for the Cybertruck, with each customer putting down a $100 refundable deposit. However, the price of this pickup has not yet been determined.
