1 In 4 Truck Buyers Considers Getting A Tesla Cybertruck: Survey

•, By: Iulian Dnistran

A new survey conducted by shows that among the truck owners who are considering making the switch to electric, a little over one in four would buy a Tesla Cybertruck (27 percent), but that's just part of the story.

The survey's results show that the Cybertruck was bested by the Ford F-150 Lightning in terms of popularity, with the Chevy Silverado EV taking third place in the "most interesting" category, while the non-existent Toyota Tacoma EV is fourth on the list of electric trucks that drivers are most interested in buying.

In a rather unexpected twist, the Rivian R1T, which is available just like the Ford F-150 Lightning, is only in fifth place in this category.

Moreover, 56 percent of respondents think the Tesla Cybertruck isn't a "real" truck, while 43 percent of the participants said that Tesla's electric pickup will launch in the next 2-3 years, with just 7 percent saying that it will become a reality within the next year.

Nine percent of the people who participated in the survey said they would never switch to an electric truck, while 35 percent are considering switching in the next 2-6 years, but have concerns like the driving range, number of charging stations, and charging times that put them on the fence.
