Tesla recently launched its long-awaited Cybertruck that divided the auto community into two groups – those who loved the futuristic design and those who thought it was just an oddly-shaped piece of metal moving on wheels. Either way, there’s no denying that the Cybertruck is a revolutionary vehicle. The truck does speeds of a Porsche while still being as strong and practical as a pickup.

After the launch, Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted a video showcasing the Cybertruck’s capabilities in a tug of war match against one of the world’s best-selling pickup truck, the Ford F-150. The video showed the Cybertruck pulling the F-150 uphill like it was nothing. The video since then has gone viral. Tesla fanboys went berserk and the video even made the sceptics rethink their stance on the Cybertruck.

But not everyone was impressed. Especially, Ford VP Sunny Madra. He felt the odds were unfair and that the Ford F-150 deserved an “apples to apple test.” Musk accepted the challenge and replied, “Bring it on.”

But Ford wasn’t the only one who wasn’t impressed. Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson also chimed in. Tyson suggested the Cybertruck should have been fully loaded up and only then can we know its full potential. But Musk wasn’t ready to back down.

“If we load both trucks to the max, electric still wins. Physics is the law, everything else is a recommendation,” said Musk.

Tyson justified his initial tweet by saying, “We all love Torque. But high Torque just spins a tire in place if there’s not enough weight to provide traction. Fully load the F150, giving highest traction to its rear wheels, then try to drag that up the hill. I otherwise agree: Load both to the max and the highest torque wins.”

Musk quickly agreed to take up this challenge and even agreed to livestream the whole test.
