Tesla's all-electric pickup truck, the Cybertruck, would not be the only star of 2021 to shine on the electric vehicle manufacturing industry as the competition adds and challenges the established EV company. Well-known brands and start-ups are now gearing up for the 2021 releases of their electric pickups with General Motors, Ford, Rivian, and more.
One of the most favorite electric vehicle manufacturers and clean energy companies, Tesla, would soon have stiff competition come 2021 when the "electric pickup craze" catches on, and rival companies release their versions. Established American companies like General Motors Corporation (GMC) and Ford are now transitioning to electric power and soon catching up with Tesla.
As early as today, Tesla would be facing five competitions that already have working units and revealed them to the public. Tesla is yet to unveil its actual prototype of the Cybertruck that is still under wraps. Current images and iterations of the Cybertrucks are based on Tesla's engineering render, concept, and displays in museums.
YouTube channel influencer called "elonTV," recently posted a video that shows the competitions Tesla's Cybertruck would face, as early as the present. The rival companies are already gearing up to take on Tesla and its market superiority in a fully electric production vehicle.
