Podcast host Joe Rogan spoke about his love for electric cars with Hollywood legend The Rock, gushing over Tesla’s new Cybertruck and its CEO Elon Musk.
On the most recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, the host sat down with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, much to the delight of listeners and film fans.
While the pair spoke about a number of topics, including steroids and their political ambitions, they focused on Tesla for a chunk of the podcast.
Joe Rogan, who is an avid car collector, said he loves his Tesla Plaid electric car, praising it for its impressive speed, describing it as a “time machine”.

The Rock questioned whether Tesla manufactures SUVs or pickup trucks, with Joe Rogan telling the Fast and Furious star about the Model X and Cybertruck, with both vehicles instantly becoming popular among drivers.
The Model X SUV features falcon-wing doors and has seen consistent sales in the United States, although the right-hand drive version will no longer be sold in the UK and Ireland for the “foreseeable future”.
Tesla’s Cybertruck has also been a hit among the brand’s fans, although it has been at the centre of controversy in recent months and years.

While the Cybertruck has been praised for its bulletproof abilities, Elon Musk and other Tesla executives were left red-faced at the launch of the vehicle after the windows instantly shattered when Musk threw a metal ball at them.
He later joked that the windows didn’t actually break and that it would be fixed in the production process.
