Elon Musk is never shy about giving candid answers to questions and in a recent interview, he admitted that the Cyebrtruck was created with market research and there's a possibility that it could be replaced with a conventional truck if it flops.

This is a bit concerning if Musk and Tesla are already thinking of backup plans for the Cybertruck. Anyone else concerned about this?

Musk said

' Customer research? We just made a car we thought was awesome and looks super weird. I just wanted to make a futuristic battle tank — something that looks like it could come out of Blade Runner or Aliens or something like that but was also highly functional. '

And while Elon isn’t worried that the Cybetruck won’t sell, if it proves to not be as big a success as the initial reaction it stirred might have led everyone to believe, the Tesla has a backup plan. The automaker will pull the plug on the Cybertruck if it’s a flop and it will sell a more conventional looking electric pickup instead.

Musk also said that he

‘ Wasn't super worried about that because if it turns out nobody wants to buy a weird-looking truck, we'll build a normal truck, no problem. There's lots of normal trucks out there that look pretty much the same; you can hardly tell the difference. And sure, we could just do some copycat truck; that's easy. So that's our fallback strategy. ‘
