Cybertruck has to be towed by Ford pickup after getting stuck off-roading

Things aren’t looking rosy for the Cybertruck on this occasion.

A video of the Cybertruck getting stuck off-road is doing the rounds on social media.

And when the Cybertruck got stuck, the driver had to seek help from the ‘enemy’.

Earlier this week, a Cybertruck driver attempted to take on an off-road track covered in snow.

The truck got stuck in the middle of a snow-covered field and the driver had to ask ‘the enemy’ for help.

The enemy being a Ford truck.

Rumor has it, the truck was actually being driven by a Tesla engineer, and it appears the stuck Cybertruck may have failed to complete the trip due ‘to software issues’.

This particular Cybertruck was, apparently, a prototype.

Even so, Tesla fans certainly weren’t happy to watch the footage of the stuck Cybertruck.

Users on Teslarati, a fan blog run by Tesla ‘proselytes’, blamed it on the driver.

“Tesla’s inexperienced off-road test drivers are doing a disservice to the Cybertruck,” Teslarati wrote on X.

We’re going to go ahead and assume that the only person that’s happy with the Cybertruck’s misfortunes is probably Jim Farley, CEO of Ford.

Not long ago, Farley had gone on record to say that the Cybertruck isn’t a real truck for real people.

It’s just a truck “for Silicon Valley people”, Farley had told CNBC.

On the plus side, the Cybertruck has also proven it can beat rivals off road on other occasions.

A few days ahead of the long-awaited unveil, a Cybertruck was able to outshine a Rivian truck while tackling a difficult pass in California.
