No doubt the Tesla Cybertruck will ultimately become one of the most popular models for the California EV maker. The Cybertruck was unveiled at the Tesla Design Studio in Los Angeles on 21 Nov 2019. Soon after the unveiling, it drove an extraordinaire attention to the public, worldwide respectfully.
With the recent interview with Automotive News Podcast, Tesla CEO Elon Musk once again answered the question about customer research of the Cybertruck:
"Customer research? We just made a car we thought was awesome and looks super weird. I just wanted to make a futuristic battle tank — something that looks like it could come out of Blade Runner or Aliens or something like that but was also highly functional."
Musk also mentioned during the interview:
"It can be a better sports car than a Porsche 911, a better truck than an F-150, and it’s armored and looks sort of kick-ass from the future. That was the goal, recognizing this could be a complete failure. But I wasn’t super worried about that because if it turns out nobody wants to buy a weird-looking truck, we’ll build a normal truck, no problem. There’s lots of normal trucks out there that look pretty much the same; you can hardly tell the difference. And sure, we could just do some copycat truck; that’s easy. So that’s our fallback strategy."
The demand for the Tesla Cybertruck is unquestionable, we reported Tesla Cybertruck orders could be above 650,000 around the end of June this year.
"We’re really, fundamentally making this truck as a North American ass-kicker, basically. The goal is to kick the most amount of ass possible with this truck. We want it to be something you could use to tow a boat, a horse trailer, pull tree stumps out of the ground, go off-roading and you don’t have to worry about scratching the paint because there is no paint. You could just be smashing boulders and be fine." says Elon Musk in the interview."
