Locally on Tuesday, Ford issued a statement saying it did not plan to take part in the tug-of-war between Tesla’s Cybertruck and the F-150, saying the rematch was a joke. On Friday, Tesla unveiled its first electric pickup, Cybertruck. At the launch, CEO Elon Musk played a video of Cybertruck dragging and dropping with the Ford F-150 pickup.
The video shows that the Ford F-150 is not a Cybertruck rival. In response, questions have been raised about the fairness of the race played in tesla’s video.
After the launch, Musk boasted on Twitter that his electric pickup Cybertruck was a better truck than the Ford F-150 pickup and faster than the Porsche 911.
Musk’s boasting about his pickup truck and stepping on a low Ford pickup has caused displeasure for Ford. So Sundeep Madra, vice president of Ford’s X division, publicly challenged Musk for a fair fight.
Soon, Elon Musk responded to the request, saying he accepted Madeira’s challenge.
While everyone was waiting to watch the play, Ford issued a statement saying made a joke about Madeira’s tweets, just to point out the absurdity of the Tesla video, that’s all.
While Ford seems reluctant to take part in cybertruck and f-150 tug-of-war, Tesla seems intent on another tug-of-war to end talk of unfairness.
