The Tesla Cybertruck presentation was one of the highlights of this month of November. Ten days ago, Elon Musk unveiled to the general public and the press his 100% electric pickup with a futuristic look, from a SpaceX production site. This beautiful baby 5.9 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.98 meters high, has a towing capacity of over 6 tons, and a range of up to 800 kilometers in its most powerful version, in addition to three small seconds needed to reach 100 km / h.

A contributor has already created and inserted in the Steam Workshop the counterpart of the Cybertruck for the game Cities: Skylines, worthy successor of Sim City in the PC universe.

A successful buzz

The players have rather welcomed the arrival of this asset on the Workshop, which in view of the first images unveiled in the game, proves to be a fairly faithful reproduction of the model presented by Elon Musk on November 21. The designer has not omitted a certain detail that made the buzz …

Beyond the impact of the presentation of the Cybertruck, the evening orchestrated by Tesla was somewhat titillated by a buzz that will not have had a dramatic impact on pre-orders, according to Elon Musk and the 200,000 pre -reservations recorded in three days.

The damaged windows have not been forgotten

The Cybertruck is touted as a vehicle with a rock-solid impact resistance. During the presentation event, the designer of Tesla, then invited on stage by the boss of the company, was able to test the strength of the high-resistance windows. If the two balls of metal have left marks clearly apparent, we must recognize that they have not crossed the glass. But would the windows resist a real projectile launched at full speed? Tesla still two years to meet this commitment, the production of the vehicle should not begin before the end of 2021.
Anyway, we'll note that stockjr97, the creator of the asset, did not forget to show the marks of the two projectiles launched during the presentation. In the service of realism, therefore.
