Elon Musk went public to say that there is a possibility that the new Tesla Cybertruck could be a failure. Tesla’s CEO is relaxed in addressing this situation.
“To be honest, there is always the possibility that Cybertruck is a failure because there is nothing like it. I don’t care, I like it a lot – Cybertruck – even if the others don’t. The other vans look like copies of the same thing, but the Cybertruck looks like it was made by aliens from the future,” said Elon Musk.
When Cbertruck announced in 2019, Elon Musk said that the vehicle will go from 0-100 in about 2.9 seconds and that it can tow 14,000 pounds, approximately 6350 kg. Its peculiar design has always been one of the most discussed points.
Last Thursday, Elon Musk said that he does not plan to put handles on the Cybertruck, that is, it is not known if it complies with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards in force in the United States.
In 2020, when he was asked about the success of the van, Musk assumed a relaxed and carefree attitude in relation to a possible failure of Cybertruck sales. At that time, Tesla’s CEO suggested that if it didn’t work, he would choose a more conventional design.
Judging by the reception of fans when the vehicle is announced, it may be very well received if it is launched, because, in 2019, Business Insider wrote that Musk shared a ‘tweet’ where he said that the cybertruck had reached 250,000 reservations.
Cybertruck production is expected to begin in late 2021, as guessed by Musk’s most recent suggestions. As with other releases of new Tesla models, first a more expensive version should come out, and that, only later, should a more “accessible” version appear. There will also be the option of three engines that should reach the market in 2022.
