#020 Tesla, Elon Musk, Cyber Truck
Tesla newest vehicle
Elon Musk led the Tesla Cyber Truck reveal about a month ago. To say it caught the media's attention would be an understatement.

Therefore, in embarrassing fashion the glass broke and instantly the video was trending across the globe. Was this planned by the genius Elon Musk, or was this totally random?
Subsequently, the aftermath on social media led to a record amount of pre-orders to be paid for the Tesla Cyber Truck. Elon Musk and the Tesla team have proven that they can build top quality electric vehicles that the public demands intently. The sky is not even the limit for Tesla and the rest of Elon Musk’s initiatives. He also is moving at breakneck speed on the SpaceX rocket that will carry people to moon and beyond.
