Ford X vice president Sunny Madra responded by trying to jump the pre-order line and asking for a Cybertruck so his company could do its own comparison, which Musk has responded to by saying "bring it on." This could be more interesting than Tesla's battle vs. Porsche on the Nurburgring, if it actually takes place anytime soon, as Musk has targeted the top-selling truck directly. The Cybertruck (along with the Cyberquad ATV) isn't scheduled to start production until the end of 2021.

Tesla's electric ATV should launch at the same time as the Cybertruck .
Tesla has said precious little about its Cyberquad electric ATV, but it's now sharing one of the most important details: when you can expect to get one. Elon Musk told Twitter followers that Tesla was planning to release the ATV at the same time as the Cybertruck, or late 2021. Pricing, performance and other details are still unknown, but you won't be deprived of electric off-roading if you're an early adopter. Musk also toyed with the prospect of designing an electric dirt bike for those who prefer two-wheeled adventures, although he didn't say how serious he was about the prospect. You can forget about an electric motorcycle, though.
