The head of Ford X (which helps startups that the automaker has invested in) Sunny Madra challenged Elon Musk on Twitter. He offered to arrange fair tests for the TeslCybertruck pickup.

The reason was a video published by Musk - in it an electric pickup Cybertruck competes with a gasoline Ford F-150 in a tug-of-war and easily defeats it. The head of Tesla immediately responded to Madra's challenge, agreeing to hold a new competition.

In the comments to the video, many users noticed that the tug of war test was incorrect. Against the four-wheel drive Cybertruck pickup truck with two electric motors, the base version of the Ford F-150 with rear wheel drive was fought. The electric car was also much heavier than the rival, and besides, it got under way earlier.

Perhaps in a new test, Ford will put an electric prototype of the F-150 pickup against the TeslCybertruck. In the summer, he moved ten double-deck freight cars loaded with 42 production F-150s. The huge trailer weighed more than a million pounds (over 453 tons).
