Sunny Madra of Ford X Challenges Elon Musk: Ready, Steady, Go!
Another day, another Cybertruck case. We're not surprised anymore. Yesterday, Elon Musk published a video on his Twitter account on which he shows his newly unveiled vehicle Cybertruck pulling an F-150 uphill.

However, there was plenty of conflict about the accuracy of the comparison since Cybertruck is a heavier vehicle, Ford F-150 vehicle was on the 2-wheel drive mode, also it was uphill, so it was easy for the heavier all-wheel-drive Cybertruck to pull the Ford F-150.
Sunny Madra, Vice President of Ford X was one of the people who thought that the comparison wasn't fair enough and it was basically comparing apples to oranges. And the response from him came quickly.
Also, Neil deGrasse Tyson, an American astrophysicist, was one of the people who had a say on the comparison.
A badass @Tesla looking like it’s doing a badass thing. But if the @Ford F-150 is RWD **with no payload** then weight on the Rear Axle is greatly reduced, offering only mild traction for the Tesla to overcome. This contest is more about the Physics of Friction than Engine Power.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) November 25, 2019
Elon Musk is still confident with his new vehicle, and his answer to Sunny Madra was only 3 words with no fuss, no muss.

We still don't know when the new comparison will happen, but we're excitedly waiting. Stay tuned!
