Cybertruck Had to Be Pulled Free by a Ford.

The Tesla Cybertruck, built from stainless steel, met its match in nature and had to be rescued by another pickup – a Ford.

Before the official presentation of the Cybertruck, Tesla boasted about its ability to tow a helpless Ford F-150. However, reality might be somewhat different. The first Tesla Cybertruck already had to admit defeat to nature.

According to Jalopnik, a Tesla employee got stuck while probably trying to fetch a Christmas tree in a Cybertruck as part of a PR stunt.

In Stanislaus National Forest, the Tesla encountered a challenge it couldn't overcome. Additionally, a software error reportedly rendered the Cybertruck's traction control inoperative.

Adding to the embarrassment, the Cybertruck apparently lacks any points where a tow eye or even a tow rope can be attached, at least on the vehicle shown in the video below, claims Instagram user ‘mchambers_22’.

This is not the first time the Cybertruck has fallen short. In 2019, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk claimed to have equipped the model with armored glass, a feature he was willing to demonstrate in front of the invited world press.

However, the demonstration did not go as the CEO had anticipated.
