The head of the company Nikola offered Elon Musk a different design for the Cybertruck pickup truckNovember 25, 2019
As part of his recent interview, Trevor Milton, who is the CEO of the Nikola Motor Company brand, suggested that Ilona Mask develop a Cybertruck pickup truck design for them. At the time of writing, Elon Musk has not yet responded to the proposal.
The first fully electric pickup truck in the history of the American company Tesla, called Cybertruck, was introduced a few days ago. This is a rather strange vehicle at first glance and of course very interesting in terms of the number of supported technologies.
In a recent post on Twitter, Mr. Milton posted a computer-generated image of the front and back of a pickup under the Nikola brand and sent it to Elon Mask himself.
Here is what he said in his address to the head of Tesla: “Hey, @elonmusk, we don’t build cars or trucks, but I’m glad to give you this truck design if your team wants to enter a wider automotive market. My team designed this exterior just in case, and I will be happy to let you use it. Let me know if you agree to our proposal and we can discuss it. “
The rendering shows a rather futuristic truck, which nevertheless has a more familiar shape, which is 1,981 mm wide, 5,588 mm long and 1,828 mm high. It seems like an honest offer from Milton, but if you read between the lines, it looked like a “stone in the garden” to Ilona Mask, implying that the design of his pickup turned out to be very disastrous.
Despite the fact that the CEO of Nikola Motor Company mentioned that their company does not produce cars and trucks, both car manufacturers are currently competing with each other in the production of electric vehicles: Tesla produces a fully electric Semi tractor, and the guys from Nikola are also working on creating fully electric trucks. This makes them essentially competitors, and the coincidence of the names of both companies in honor of the inventor Nikolai Tesla is comical.
