Ford F-150 its a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive pickup truck full size category. American "trucks" of the F-Series family appeared in the Ford model line back in 1948, and the F-150 modification was first noted in their sixth generation (the 70s of the 20th century). Ford is a company that has been on the market for more than 70 years.
In fact, if you lived in the 70-90s of the 20th century, then the Ford F-150 would most likely be a good option if you would need to carry various cargoes and bulky items.
Well, time doesn't stand still, technologies are developing, and common sense tells us that our planet is oversaturated with gas-powered cars that emit thousands of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every day. Along with this awareness, comes the understanding that we must change something.
An engineer, an inventor and a very broad-minded person, Elon Musk, has already taken care of this. His company, Tesla, which has been on the market for 16 years, has been developing and manufacturing environmentally friendly cars.
To date, the perfect model lineup has been developed: the world's fastest-accelerating serial sports car Roadster; a 5-seater Model S sedan (possessing the characteristics of a sports car); an Model X SUV (possessing the characteristics of a sports car); an affordable high-performance sedan, Model 3; a Semi truck and compact crossover Model Y. But this S3XY team lacked a small peppercorn - Cybertruck.
Cybertruck is attracting the attention of more and more people around the world. It has a unique futuristic design and performance that are amazing. And this, undoubtedly, attracts the attention of not only a more mature audience but also much younger people.
Most of you have probably heard or are even users of the TikTok social network, which allows you to create short music videos, live stream and exchange messages.
Launched in September 2016, this social network is currently one of the most popular in the world, becoming one of the fastest growing and most downloaded applications. At the moment, the application has reached more than 500 million users from 150 countries. The main audience of this social network are teenagers. However, in China, 60% of users are in the age range of 25-44 years, and outside of China 43% of users are over 24.
The Tesmanian blog team decided to check how popular the Ford F-150, which has been on the market for several decades, and the Tesla Cybertruk, which was introduced just over a month ago among TikTok users. Some of you may say that this is not a very fair comparison, several decades against one month, but still, let's take a chance.
Through simple calculations, we see that Ford F-150 has approximately 33 million video-sharing. Pretty good, this result is almost on 3 million, more than the number of Twitter followers of Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk. Well, the Ford F-150 had at least 3 years (the lifetime of the TikTok social network) in order to accumulate all of these references.
The time has come to see how young people are interested in Tesla Cybertruck.
...In fact, this is quite an exciting moment. After all, Ford F-150, for decades, was one of the most beloved trucks among millions of people. And in contrast to it, we have an electric car with a bizarre shape that has been heavily criticized by a large number of people. However, we must finish what we started. So...
What? 84 million?
Oh yes, it's 84 million video-sharing. In fact, it is amazing.
The results that can be obtained using TikTok, or any other social network, reflect the actual trend of companies and products. It is in social networks that people discuss what is interesting to them, so the intensity of discussions and mentions of companies and products very well reflect their true situation.
As we see, the interest of young people in the old Ford F-150 is not as great as you might expect. Instead, the younger generation chooses a clean future, the futuristic design of Cybertruck and the creative & sociably CEO of a company that focuses only on the success of its mission: helping humanity transition to sustainable energy.
