Tesla's Fallback Plan for The Cybertruck
Elon Musk says if Tesla Cybertruck fails Tesla will have a Plan B for the Cybertruck. He detailed a little more about Cybertruck's fallback plan, which I think is so interesting that it could be a separate Cybertruck B idea for those people who don't like the innovative design of the Cybertruck.
During a recent interview with Automotive News, Elon Musk stated that Tesla was prepared to deal with slumping sales when the Cybertruck is released in late 2021. There is a possibility that the company’s first pickup will not do well, and Musk said that Tesla would adapt.
“If it turns out nobody wants to buy a weird-looking truck, we’ll build a normal truck, no problem,” the Tesla CEO said on the Daily Drive Podcast. “There are lots of normal trucks out there that look pretty much the same. You can hardly tell the difference. And sure, we could just do some copycat truck. That’s easy. So that’s our fallback strategy.”
