No other passenger car on Earth is made with a body this rigid.
The who evolution of car body construction has been to make the car sacrificial to the safety of the human occupants, other drivers, and pedestrians.
The car body absorbs impact energy so the humans inside don’t.
So what happens with the Cyber truck in a crash?
Resilience only goes so far.
Very hard materials tend to fail in a brittle manner under load.
So I suspect that this body will go from not being dented to catastrophic failure quickly.
That was one of the problems with the DeLorean stainless steel body.
I know else about this vehicle, I’m just a materials engineer asking questions.
