The Tesla Cybertruck sporting a Ford F-150 vinyl wrap has change into an web sensation after pictures of it had been shared on-line earlier this week.
It is arduous to consider every other firm that may do one thing like that, particularly seeing as Tesla has displayed its trolling talents on earlier events. Nonetheless, that is next-level trolling even for Tesla – possibly it is payback for that point Ford trolled Tesla with the F-150 Lightning’s bi-directional charging functionality?
Now, the pictures had been taken inside a Tesla facility, and one in every of them revealed a not so flattering view of the frunk, which appears a lot smaller than on the Ford F-150 Lightning. That is principally because of the Cybertruck’s quick nostril.
If the preliminary pictures of the Tesla Cybertruck impersonating a Ford F-150 left you wanting extra, you have come to the appropriate place. New pictures have surfaced on-line, and this time they present the truck driving on public roads.
Shared by Brian Sullivan (@SullyCNBC) and Greggertruck (@greggertruck) on Twitter, the pictures present the truck driving in Palo Alto and on a automotive hauler, presumably in the identical space the place Tesla has its engineering headquarters.
It is certainly a wierd factor to see on the street, and chances are high Tesla will not be fooling anybody with the disguise – not that it needed to, after all. The California producer’s plate removes any doubt that Tesla has sanctioned this wrap.
That is trolling on some epic stage, contemplating that it comes shortly after Ford Motor Firm CEO Jim Farley criticized the Cybertruck for not being an actual work truck.
“It is [the Cybertruck] like a cool high-end product parked in entrance of a lodge. However I do not make vans like that. I make vans for actual individuals who do actual work, and that is a unique type of truck,” Farley mentioned in an interview with CNBC. Ford’s head honcho was clearly referring to the Cybertruck’s unibody development versus the F-150’s body-on-frame setup.
Whereas it is true that unibody vans can’t examine with their body-on-frame counterparts in the case of payload, towing, and different work-related parameters, one shouldn’t neglect that the Tesla Cybertruck will not be a median unibody pickup, as its structural pores and skin is product of cold-rolled chrome steel, a really robust materials.
