First comment would be glad you're OK & there were no catastrophic results from that scary event!

Second would be to second the comments on tempered glass - it's strange stuff & the slightest sharp tap CAN shatter it, yet you can hammer your fist on it as hard as you want without breaking it!

Stress on the glass B4 the sharp tap sometimes seems to be a contributing factor, being a new car you MAY get coverage on a "Good Will" basis even if it's not a definite "warranty" issue that's provable - good luck!

(As others mentioned, the initiating tap from a projectile may have been entirely masked by the explosion of the tempered glass that resulted)
