    Two things about this:

    1) The side glass on any other car/truck is tempered glass that would have broken into a million small bits and that "medicine ball" would have been in the vehicle. This one clearly has laminated glass, which the big-assed ball bearing didn't penetrate, so it's certainly a cut above the average vehicle.

    2) I think the "failure" was planned; this is called viral marketing. They gave rides in the truck after the event and the side windows were not smashed. See here. I take that to mean they had replacement glass there, ready to install, which they wouldn't have unless they knew in advance it would likely be needed.

    Either you posted that in the wrong thread or you need to look at a map. Lordstown is just about 100 km from Cleveland.

    Yes!

    The degree of coasting recuperation can be set to any of three stages by means of paddles on the steering wheel, and there are now greater distinctions between the three, which allows the driver the option of a more pronounced “one-pedal feeling.”
    Anyone who has ever driven an EV car (including PHEV in EV mode) will tell you that regen is awesome and coasting is dumb. Using the right pedal, I can precisely control the amount of regen including zero for coasting if I so choose, just give me the choice!
