I didn't think the Tesla Cybertruck looked pedestrian friendly.

https://www.motoringresearch.com/car-news/tesla-cybertruck-not-legal-europe/

Quote
The Tesla Cybertruck will require “strong modifications to the basic structure” to be legal for sale in Europe, according to a German TUV safety certification expert.

While the Cybertruck has orders into the hundreds of thousands from prospective buyers across the world, when exactly it will be sold outside America – if indeed it can be – remains unclear.

Because the Cybertruck is classed as a light duty truck in the USA, it gets exemptions from many safety regulations, including for pedestrian safety. That’s not the case in Europe, however.

“The front of the vehicle must not be stiff,” explains Stefan Teller, expert at SGS-TUV Saar GmbH.

“The bumper and bonnet must be able to absorb energy to protect the pedestrians,” meaning those “strong modifications to the basic structure,” would be necessary. Teller follows that for type approval, the Cybertruck would need to be compliant with 50 to 60 different regulations.

Looking back to the reveal of the Cybertruck, much was made of how stiff and strong its rolled stainless steel structure and panels were. Great for sledgehammers, but potentially deadly for the occupants and unwitting pedestrians…

Regulations require that new cars deform in very specific ways, depending on the nature of an accident. For the occupants, the car needs to basically disintegrate in order to dissipate energy. For pedestrians, a car needs to be able to cushion the blow in the event of an impact.

With the Cybertruck, “nothing is deformed in the event of an impact; instead, enormous forces act on the occupants. Airbags then no longer help”.

On this basis, “It will not be possible to sell it in this country as a mass-production vehicle on the basis of a type approval,” Teller says. “It is still a big task for Mr. Musk.”

Given by how litigious the USA is I'm amazed the "US allows exemptions from many safety regulations for light trucks".

Those exemptions exist because of said litigious nature.

Putting a big engine on a spike is good even for them though.

Best thing he could do is re-tool Tesla facilities to produce ventilators. Or throw his money at the problem and keep his mouth shut. The audacity of him to offer his opinion about this crisis like he's any kind of authority on public health or epidemiology.

He's acted like a complete c*** from the off. He's got the resources to actually help, and he's braying about it being a meme/joke
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

I'm surprised Elon hasn't called anyone who doesn't agree with his opinion a "Pedo".

Death toll increased in Italy 3 fold in just one week. He can go f*** himself with this s*** (and Dr. Drew and Dr. Oz while he's at it). We don't need this dickhead's opinion.
