Ford backs down on Tesla Cybertruck tug-of-war

A rematch of the Tesla Cybertruck tug-of-war with the Ford F-150 is not going ahead anytime soon after Ford issued an official statement dismissing the challenge as “tongue-in-cheek”. Earlier this week a senior executive at Ford had issued a challenge to Elon Musk via Twitter after a Tesla video showed a Cybertruck towing a Ford F-150 backwards up a hill. The Ford tweet said: "Send us a Cybertruck and we'll do the apples-to-apples test for you.” Musk responded: “Bring it on”.

Ford calls for Tesla Cybertruck tug-of-war rematch

US car giant Ford has issued a challenge to Tesla after the electric start-up showed a video of its new Cybertruck towing a Ford F-150 backwards uphill in a tug of war contest. Ford believes it was not a fair fight because Tesla used a heavier all-wheel-drive version of the Cybertruck to go up against a lighter, rear drive Ford pick-up. Ford executive Sundeep Madra challenged Tesla boss Elon Musk via Twitter for a rematch, claiming it was unfairly skewed in the Tesla’s favour.

2017-20 Porsche Panamera and Cayenne recalled

Porsche has recalled the 2017-20 Panamera and 2018-20 Cayenne, over concerns about the 'brake pad worn' warning light on the dashboard. According to the company, the 'brake pad worn' warning light mightn't be permanently displayed when the car's brakes are worn out – instead, it can be dismissed until the car is next started. If the warning message can be too easily ignored, there's a risk drivers will continue driving around with worn brake pads, increasing their risk of injury or accident.
