Here's America's truck leader's answer to Tesla's electric pick-up !!

Seriously amazed by the towing capacity, and I don't think in anyway Tesla can even come close on this one ! It would be interesting to see how Ford continues to take leadership on this segment amidst disrupting factors such as electrification and autonomy.



Cheers,
Vijay

This video outlining what to expect from the Tesla truck. It's full of known details and even concludes with some footage of Truckla, the converted Tesla Model 3 truck.

Tesla Cybertruck Is A Pickup From The Future Now; 0-60 In 2.9s, and willl get up to 500 miles of range and start at $39,900.

The Truck can withstand sledge hammers and bullets, but not metal balls thrown at close range.

I guessed the product development was rushed - that they couldn't really design it!

Looks like a child's drawing, materialised at the local welding shop!

This design belongs to the weird and wacky modification section. Common we did not expect this!. I fail to understand what ballistics has got anything to do with a pick up truck.

Even the bat mobile looks better .

I am glad that this will never come to India. Price, performance and range are great but that thing is ugly.

Elon mentioned in an interview that it will be polarizing and if many people does not like it, they may release normal looking pick up truck. He needs to do that as soon as possible.

Pre-booking is on for those who are interested I like the 500 miles range and AWD with a 2.9 sec 0-60 MPH acceleration!

He did mention about it in his speech. The body of the truck is load bearing stressed member and hence the use of a special steel alloy. Ballistic and impact resistance is just a by-product of the strong steel body.
And BTW, the shattering of the glass was so funny and made a fool out of himself on stage. He would have never thought his armored glass would break so easily.

It's an... Isosceles triangle!

Blade runner esque and will be deeply polarizing. Personally I love it in a "it's so bad it's good" way. Imagine driving down a dark rainy Mumbai street and seeing one of these in the rear view mirror!

Is this a JOKE? After designing such sexy cars like the Model S & 3, they come up with THIS . Sure looks like something that was designed by an 11-year old with just a ruler & pencil. Or a new car manufacturing country like Bolivia. I understand the need to be "different" and to stand out, but this is just crazy. It's pushing things a bit too far.

Me thinks that Tesla just hurried this up & was under pressure due to the E-Mustang & Rivian's sweet looking designs. Sure must be a party today in Rivian's offices!

Mods, can we add a poll wrt the design?
  • Superb
  • Good
  • Neutral
  • Bad
  • Hideous

I feel Elon Musk lives on brink of eccentricity. Some of his products are drool worthy, some are outrageous. Flamethrower
