Yesterday, 19th December 2019, Forbes magazine published a tech article on how many people don’t like the new Tesla Cybertruck. The survey article that starts with the word ‘Bad News’ had faced criticism on Twitter.
In a bold claim, the famous magazine published on its online page that the vehicle didn’t have many fans. This was allegedly based on another article from PiplSay. The market research firm mentioned that they had run a poll of 21,143 American consumers.
Its result is that only 29 percent of respondents had something positive to say about Cybrtrk.
This is in direct contrast to what Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk said early this month. The billionaire had boasted of already receiving over 250,000 preorders for the vehicle that is expected in 2021.
As noted by Forbes, people only have to pay a fully refundable $100 in advance for the reservation. Which is quite affordable and maybe the reason why pre-order numbers are so high.
PiplSay’s survey revealed that the average American consumer is not actually eager about the truck. The fame of the futuristic vehicle was confirmed when 44 percent of the approached people agreed that they knew of the truck.

Meanwhile, nine percent agreed that Cybrtrk would likely bring further innovations in automobile design.
The article claimed that 71 percent reacted negatively or indifferently when asked about the truck. Thus, the article concluded that the fans of the electric vehicle were limited. Although, some responded that they would prefer it if it were smaller.
But, despite some of the reasonable arguments in the article, fans of Tesla’s Cybertruck have lashed out at Forbes on Twitter. Even with the botched unveiling where the bulletproof glass shattered under test, there are still people who love it.

Bad news, Forbes: People are still buying it

@elonmusk didn’t make it for everyone, he made it for those who love things that are different and come from outside the box. It’s definitely a niche market but he loves his design and if you don’t like it you don’t have to buy it. I myself am preordering

Good, most people are really bad at knowing what’s actually cool. Those hard angles are an awesome breakaway from the rounded edges that dominate car design.

We wait to see when it will enter the market and how it’s sales will go.
