Dubai Police Adding Tesla Cybertruck To Its Already Flashy Chase Cars

Then Sundeep Madra, vice president of Ford's venture incubator, chimed in, tweeting that his company would do an "apples to apples" test.

Musk tweeted "250k" on Tuesday night in an apparent reference to the number of orders.

The company did not immediately confirm the figure after regular office hours.

Musk and Tesla didn't say which exact configuration of the Cybertruck, or F-150, they used for the stunt, while some viewers were critical, calling the fight unfair after seeing what was apparently an all-wheel-drive Cybertruck pulling a rear-wheel-drive Ford F-150 in the Tesla video.

The Dubai police force recently shared an image of the Tesla Cybertruck police auto on the social networking site Twitter, announcing that one of the electric pickup trucks will be a part of its fleet next year. He said he would happily hold another contest next week.

The Ford statement to U.S. media outlet Fox continued: "With America's best-selling truck for 42 years, we've always focused on serving our truck customers regardless of what others say or do".

Tesla opened preorders immediately after the unveiling and allowed potential buyers to book the truck by depositing a fully refundable $100, compared with the $1,000 it charged for booking Model 3 sedans in 2016.

Lego, manufacturer of popular interlocking plastic bricks, has shared its own version of a futuristic vehicle, taunting at Tesla with claim of Guaranteed shatterproof.

Gordon Johnson, an analyst at GLJ Research, said the Cybertruck would likely have a much lower conversion rate of actual purchases to orders.

Ford and Tesla are in a literal tug of war.
