Two panes are better than one.
Tesla introduced double-paned glass on some of its vehicles as a way to possibly block some noise from entering the cabin. Tests show mixed results as to whether or not it was successful at reducing noise within, but one of the added benefits of the dual-pane glass is its strength.
We've seen a video before of the double-paned glass standing up to quite a bit of abuse and again here we have a similar event. We wouldn't recommend that you attempt to test the strength of this glass though, but at least there's some video proof showing that two panes are better than one when it comes to securing the vehicle.
And remember, even the Tesla Cybertruck's glass, which was claimed to be basically bulletproof, found its breaking point live on stage when it debuted. Yes, we'll never forget the Cybertruck's shattered glass.
InsideEVs received a tip alerting us to this video. It states:
Just watched this TeslaSentry compilation and saw a theft attempt captured on Sentry Mode.
The surprisingly strong double-paned glass protected Model Y from this theft attempt.
YouTuber Teslacam Supercharged states this of the video above (it includes more than just the double-paned glass incident).
Today's video features theft attempts, a moron keying a Tesla Model 3, an accident in a parking lot and more.
Videos should be used as an educational tool and guide for viewers to assess situations and perhaps prevent any unfortunate incidents in the future.
Go ahead and grab a look at the video and let us know if you're impressed by the strength of the Model Y's double-paned glass.
