Elon Musk tests Cybertruck vs Ford; Ford VP unhappy

Ford’s Vice President Sunny Madra wants a rematch.

Tesla’s newly launched Cybertruck is getting all the praise for its look that gives us a glimpse of the future. The staple feature of the truck is its powerful engine. Just to showcase its capabilities, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a tug-of-war of cars that make its Cybertruck and an F-150 Ford non-electric truck clash for the most powerful title.

The said tug-of-war was shot in a 16 seconds video uploaded by Musk where viewers can see the trucks on a road parked back-to-back with a rope attached to their bumpers. Both the truck use their full power to drag each other on their side. Of course, the Tesla Cybertruck clearly wins the tug-of-war by pulling the Ford F-150 up.

This did not go down with Ford’s Vice President Sunny Madra who later tweeted asking for a rematch. Elon Musk quickly responded “Bring it on” to his tweet. However, if a Ford spokesperson is to be believed, Sunny’s tweet was just a tongue-in-cheek. There isn’t any confirmation whether Ford will pay any heed to this war.

Many more people commented that the battle was indeed unfair, including astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson but Elon Musk seemed unfazed. He has been using his Twitter followers, 30 million at that, in order to sell Tesla cars. Last weekend he tweeted, “Better truck than an F-150, faster than a Porsche 911.”
