Lego mocks Tesla with “guaranteed shatterproof” brick model of Cybertruck



Toy firm Lego has reacted to the launch of Tesla’s Cybertruck by discussing an image of a automobile made by a single plastic brick.

The Danish toy manufacturer made the very simple model automobile to ditch the blocky Cybertruck electric pickup truck, that was introduced by Elon Musk past week.

Lego submitted the image of this automobile made from a single, blue brick along with two sets of wheels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The image was posted alongside the caption:”The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof”.

Even the caption references a crash in the Cybertruck’s launch event, in which its windows shattered. Produced from Tesla Armor Glass the side windows have been created to be bullet proof, but broke when metal balls were thrown in them.

Following the event Musk reacted to the unsuccessful test by minding :”Guess we have some improvements to make before production haha.”

It was disclosed that the windows shattered as the glass had cracked if they’d analyzed the truck doors hitting them.

“Yup. Sledgehammer impact on door cracked base of glass, which is why steel ball didn’t bounce off. Should have done steel ball on window, *then* sledgehammer the door. Next time…,” tweeted Musk.

The truck has an unusual, angular, wedge-like body and is produced from stainless steel. It was started on 21 November in an event near the Organization’s SpaceX factory in Los Angeles, USA.

The evolution of the truck is still here. Guaranteed shatterproof 😬

Lego’s brick edition of this Cybertruck is part of a societal media storm made by the initiation of the much-anticipated electric truck in Tesla. It has split opinion with some people calling it”courageous” while others think that it is”ridiculous”.

Dezeen commenters had equally strong opinions, with Martin Zborovjan saying:”Really bold. I like it. People laughed at iPhone too, remember? I am not a truck fan, but would buy this one”.

However Alan Smith stated:”Beyond ridiculous!  A pick-up is meant to be a practical, rugged vehicle. What this thing is or is meant to be is a mystery.”

The Cybertruck will go into manufacturing in 2022. It’s the newest electric vehicle unveiled Musk by Tesla, that was co-founded by Musk.

In 2017 Tesla introduced the”first mass-market electric vehicle” the Model 3 and since it’s established electric vans and earlier this year released its “safest” all-electric crossover SUV.
