Elon Musk isn't about to get a public duel between Tesla's Cybertruck and the Ford F-150 -- not officially, anyway. While Ford's venture incubator VP Sundeep Madra suggested he'd like an "apples to apples" test of the two pickups, a spokesperson told TechCrunch the exec's tweet was only a "tongue in cheek" remark pointing out the "absurdity" of a clip showing the Cybertruck winning a tug-of-war with the F-150. Effectively, Ford felt it had nothing to prove. "We've always focused on serving our truck customers regardless of what other say or do," the spokesperson said.

Ford added that it was going to have electrified trucks regardless, including a hybrid F-150 in 2020 and a fully electric F-150 in "a few years."

  Watch Tesla's 'Cybertruck' unveiling at 11 PM ET Tesla CEO Elon Musk has put the F-150 squarely in his company's sights, and tonight we'll find out how close it can get with a new "Cybertruck." In a tweet earlier today the exec referenced his 2012 goal of "a Tesla supertruck with crazy torque, dynamic air suspension and corners like its on rails." At a shareholder's meeting earlier this year Musk said the truck will "look like it came out of a sci-fi movie" and the run up to its unveiling has been heavy on Blade Runner references. What does that all add up to? We'll find out shortly -- check out the livestream right here.Cybertruck Unveil livestream starts at 8pm https://t.co/BhTBgNqeWQpic.

It’s doubtful Tesla ’ s tug - of - war test was an apples-to-apples comparison. However, it’ll be all apples and oranges until Ford debuts the electric F-150. That'll be an accurate evaluation of each brand’s pickup truck . There's no doubt the Cybertruck made a splash last week with impressive performance

There might not be a clear-cut winner if there is a duel, official or otherwise (Musk hinted at one next week). As astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson pointed out, the Cybertruck won Tesla's pre-recorded battle because its inherently heavy design made the most of the EV's high torque. The F-150, meanwhile, had relatively little weight over its rear wheel drive system and thus didn't have the traction needed to fight back. Fully loading both would still favor the Cybertruck, but there could be situations where Ford's truck emerged victorious.

Tesla Cybertruck will join Dubai's eclectic police fleet .
Dubai's police force is well-known for incorporating supercars and other oddities into its fleet, but its latest might be the most eccentric to date. The law enforcement agency has revealed that it'll add Tesla's Cybertruck to its stable -- it claims this will happen in 2020, but that's clearly not happening when production doesn't start until late 2021. Commander-in-Chief Maj Gen. Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri explained that this would help "enhance security presence" in tourist spots like the Burj Khalifa. Goodness knows you're less likely to speed if an electric death wedge is likely to hunt you down.
