A new study from the well-known analytical agency Autolist is designed to determine which electric truck is currently the most attractive for purchase – Tesla Cybertruck or F-150, an unnamed (so far) electric car from GM or Rivian R1T.

Fully electric Ford F-150 and Tesla Cybertruck pickups will not appear on the market in a couple of years – and we really look forward to this moment, since we can compare them with each other and find out who can offer a great towing capacity and carrying capacity. And it is clear that already now from the side of potential buyers of new products there is great interest in these cars.

 A new study from the well-known analytical agency Autolist is designed to determine which particular electric truck they would prefer to buy – Tesla Cybertruck or F-150, an unnamed (yet) electric car from GM or Rivian R1T. It turns out that the respondents interviewed in most cases replied that they liked GM and Ford electric cars.

For the future electric truck from General Motors, 29 percent voted, and 27 percent would have chosen a new product from Ford. Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian R1T accounted for 20 and 24 percent, respectively.

 What is interesting from the data obtained is that the questions about what kind of electric pickup they would buy were asked to those who do not currently own this type of transport.

Summing up below, Autolist analysts note that the younger the respondent, the more likely he will choose a truck from Tesla. This was the most popular choice among respondents who were between the ages of 18 and 28. This is great for Tesla brand recognition, but this age group can rarely afford such expensive cars. The future Ford truck finished second, followed by Rivian and GM. Interviewees who were between the ages of 29 and 35 and between 46 and 55 would also choose pick-ups from all four brands.

 This seems to be good news for all four automakers who want a small share of the electric car market. None of the listed companies will present their truck until 2021, and by then the industry and the trucks themselves might look different.
