Tesla CEO Elon Musk had another mishap with his futuristic Cybertruck when he plowed over a pylon on his way out of a ritzy California sushi restaurant.
Musk bonked the pylon with the rear driver’s side wheel of his steel-sheathed pickup as he turned out of a parking lot at Nobu in Malibu Saturday night, video obtained by TMZ shows.
The impact made a thump before an apparently oblivious Musk drove off into the distance, according to the footage.
Musk reportedly turned heads by pulling the electric Cybertruck into the luxe beachfront eatery. Diners snapped photos of it throughout the evening and the billionaire entrepreneur eventually emerged with the actor Edward Norton, who apparently wanted a look himself, TMZ reported.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the pylon debacle.
Musk also took to Twitter Saturday to thank fans for their input on the polarizing pickup, which has an unusual angular design.
“Huge thanks to everyone who contributed ideas to Cybertruck. It’s better because of you!” he tweeted, adding three red heart emojis.
Tesla is not expected to get close to producing the Cybertruck until late 2021. The automaker plans to offer three models starting at $39,900.
The pylon-toppling incident followed a botched Nov. 21 launch event where Tesla’s chief designer shattered the Cybertruck’s “armor glass” windows — minutes after Musk claimed its body was “bulletproof.”
Musk was reportedly dining out a day after a Los Angeles jury found he did not defame British cave explorer Vernon Unsworth by calling him a “pedo guy” in a Twitter tirade last year.
