While the customers of the Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck continue to wait for their cars, an active discussion broke out on the Network about the possible idea of an American company producing a more compact version of this model.
Among the arguments that could push Tesla to start developing such a model, Internet users point to the growing popularity of compact pickups. As an example, Ford most often appears with the Maverick hybrid, which is quite popular.
It is based on the same platform as in Escape and Bronco but in a reduced size. And soon this model will also have an all-electric version.
Another example is Hyundai, which recently released a small Santa Cruz pickup truck. It shares a platform with the Tucson compact crossover and is currently available as a hybrid model.
All this suggests that the possible success of the reduced Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck could not even be doubted, and the development itself would not require serious costs, since the Tesla Model Y architecture could act as a platform for the car.
However, Tesla is probably unlikely to take such a step, since it may fear a drop in sales of a larger and margin model in favor of the mass version. Nevertheless, the idea put forward on the Web seems very interesting and could well be considered by the Tesla board of directors.
