Snow is quickly becoming the Cybertruck’s greatest nemesis

Perhaps the standard Cybertruck tires aren't good on snow but still, people are getting worried.
  • The Cybertruck has only been here for a few weeks but we’ve already seen it stuck in snow more than once
  • Some people are saying that perhaps it’s all down to the tires, which aren’t suitable for snow or ice
  • So far, very few people outside of Tesla have received their truck

The Cybertruck was unveiled just a few weeks ago but it seems we’ve already found its Achilles’ heel.

Elon Musk’s truck clearly doesn’t like snow.

One might argue that nothing is more important than having the right tire when driving on snow or ice.

So perhaps these drivers were on summer tires, which really don’t work on snow.

Even so, just a few months after the unveil, we’ve seen an alarming number of Cybertrucks getting stuck in snow.

A relatively limited number of ‘real’ buyers i.e., not including people who work at Tesla, have actually received their truck so far.

For this reason, we can expect more issues – or features – to emerge in the coming months, as more Cybertruck owners get familiar with their vehicle.

Based on what we’ve seen so far, it seems clear that the truck’s standard tires are not good enough for snow, ice or slush.

This time the truck got stuck while trying to tackle a thick, tall wall of snow.

The video was posted to Instagram by Ramsey Ackad and it’s been doing the rounds on social media.

However, we’ve already seen other videos where the Cybertruck was seen struggling on a field that was only partially covered in snow.

One thing is for certain – every time one of these videos go viral, we can’t help but think about Jim Farley, CEO of Ford.

He’s always been one of the most vocal critics of the Cybertruck.

He once famously said the Cybertruck is “for Silicon Valley people” and not for people who “do real work”.
