The pickup truck – Tesla’s latest offering – had its windows smashed during a demonstration in 2019, but CEO Elon Musk insisted the company “try it again” at an event in Texas on Thursday.

He called on chief designer Franz von Holzhausen to throw a baseball at the vehicle’s windows.

This time, the glass did not shatter upon impact. However, this is not a like-for-like experiment as the ball used in 2019 was made of metal.
