"The Tesla Cybertruck's 'bullet-resistant' exoskeleton takes center stage in an upcoming episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, featuring Elon Musk, set to be released today. This marks Musk's fourth appearance on the JRE Podcast, with previous interviews in September 2018, May 2020, and February 2021.
Joe Rogan's social media post, highlighting the incredible strength of the Cybertruck's exterior, comes shortly after Tesla released a video of the pickup enduring gunfire from a Tommy gun while driving on a highway. The video, initially captured by an onlooker and shared on social media, prompted Musk's claim that he had fired an entire drum magazine from a Tommy gun into the driver's door in an 'Al Capone-style' test to assess the vehicle's durability. According to Musk, 'No bullets penetrated into the passenger compartment.'
While neither Tesla nor Musk has released the actual video of the Tommy gun test, clips showing the Cybertruck withstanding the gunfire have circulated on various social media platforms.
In past JRE episodes featuring Musk, a wide array of topics were discussed, including significant insights into the Cybertruck, such as Tesla's decision to reduce the truck's dimensions to improve its drivability.
