Elon Musk shared a computer-generated (CG) video on his Twitter account showing a post-apocalyptic world where robots and humans are at war — but the star of the show is Tesla’s Cybertruck.

The 48-second clip, which looks like a scene from Grand Theft Auto, shows a Cybertruck hurtling through empty streets, knocking down fences and slamming through a wall of four-legged robots.

Musk uploaded the video Sunday, captioned “Cybrrrtruck,” which also features a Tesla Roadster with two other people also helping to save the world.

The passengers in both vehicles are tasked with removing a bomb set by the robots, which they do by attaching it to the Cybertruck and Roadster and dragging it to a cliff where they toss it over before donating.

The video opens with the Cybertruck and Roadster flying over an empty road in what was once a city, but is now just rubble and rubble.

There is a first person view during the clip, which transports viewers to the driver’s seat of the racing Cybertruck.

The Cybertruck zooms closer to a group of robots with machine guns, when the woman jumps out the side of the window and fires back at the hail of bullets heading their way.

The driver then says, “I’ll take you to the bomb right away,” followed by, “Take it easy, it’s a cinch.”

Tesla’s futuristic vehicle and Roadster team up to grab the chained bomb and pull it out of position.

You can watch the cyber truck knock down robots and fences as it moves towards the bomb. It eventually reaches the bomb and releases a chain that grabs the bomb and pulls it out of position.

“Dark is coming. This is the time. It is now or never. Just go for it,” the driver says again as the Cybertruck and Roadster soar off a cliff into the sky where a huge circular vortex awaits.

Musk first unveiled the all-electric Cybertruck on November 22, 2019 during a live show where he took the sage at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

But what Musk thought would become a successful show ended in embarrassment after the glass was smashed during a demonstration, just after boasting it was “unbreakable.”

During the announcement of the truck — which looks like an armored vehicle with angular sides — Tesla design chief Franz von Holshausen tried to prove the glass was “unbreakable” by throwing a heavy metal ball at close range.

Musk was heard muttering “oh my f***ing God” as the glass broke.

The body of the all-electric truck is based on a 1976 Lotus Esprit sports car that Musk owned in 2013 and was used in the 1977 James Bond film ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’.

Tesla has yet to bring the Cybertruck to market, but Forbes reported in last year that more than 500,000 people have reserved the unique vehicle that could cost up to $69,900.
