Watch Your Fingers: Tesla’s Cybertruck could cut off fingers, recent social media video shows

Cybertruck cuts a carrot

Toronto, Ontario — A recent video posted to the social media platform TikTok by Tyler Blanchard shows that drivers, if not careful, could have their fingers more than just jammed by the Cybertruck’s frunk.

In the video, Blanchard uses an anatomically correct model hand with realistic bone filling to answer the question of whether or not the Cybertruck’s automatic frunk can cut off a human finger.

Previous tests done by consumers with the vehicle have shown that the truck’s frunk is capable of snapping through a carrot, and this has raised questions about the potential dangers if a driver were to accidentally catch their hand.

In the video, Blanchard puts the thumb—because this is the thickest bone in the hand—into the joint where the automatic frunk will close. When the frunk successfully latches, it also successfully severs the thumb from the hand, leaving it trapped inside the vehicle.

Blanchard then finishes the video by seeing if the Cybertruck is capable of cutting through the hand’s remaining fingers, something that the vehicle then does with relative ease.

While vehicles are no strangers to hand injuries, consumer tests of the Cybertruck show that drivers should be careful to keep their hands and feet inside the ride at all times.

Check out the full video below.
