Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted a video clip of the Tesla Cybertruck and the Ford F-150 having a tug of war battle... with the Tesla pulling the Ford up a hill.
Elon wanted to demonstrate how much torque and power the Cybertruck's dual-motor, steel alloy body (same material on the Space X Starship rocket), all-wheel-drive truck ($39,000) had over the F-150 and stated that pre-sales for the Tesla Cybertruck are now at 200,000. The reason for the 'angular' design is simply because the steel alloy can not be stamped or bent easily using traditional manufacturing techniques.
The Tesla Cybertruck boasts 250 miles per charge (can be upgraded to 500 miles), 800 horsepower, 7,500-lb towing capacity, 0-60 mph in a few seconds, 1,000 lb-feet of torque and looks like it may weigh significantly less than the Ford F-150.
This video comes after last week's broken armored glass demonstration during their reveal.
Elon tweeted: "Better truck than an F-150, faster than a Porsche 911,"
I'll say that it does NOT look like a scientific comparison especially since it looks like the Tesla had a head start on the tug and didn't even allow the Ford to dig its tires into the road.
