Elon Musk last month described the launch of the Tesla Model Y as the “smoothest” that the company had ever had. However, a video posted to Twitter this week revealed a possible hitch: a roof that blows off in the wind.
A short clip that appeared to have been shot from the inside of a convertible as it drove down a freeway has gone viral on Twitter, with the caption accompanying it reading: “Hey @elonmusk why didn’t you tell us that Tesla sells convertibles now? Because the roof of our brand new model Y fell off on the highway.”
The user, who conceded that the story sounded far-fetched and that their proof looked “sketchy – I don’t typically post anything so getting good pics was an afterthought,” said the roof fell off “literally 2 hours after” their parents picked the car up from the Tesla dealership in Dublin, California.
