Fake news - the tesla's windows would have popped out and everything. must be get at tesla day.
DC motors have almost infinite torque. There's almost no way for the conventional truck to win that battle. That said, the Toyota can go places you'd never take an electric, like off-roading, that is unless you take your own big solar panels and don't mind being out there for weeks charging up your truck to get back home.
Elon needs to come up with a new car using a sodium battery. And to make it light, a magnesium frame. MUCH more "thrilling" to drive. For a body, use nitrocellulose, worked great for model airplanes and the Hindenburg.
@jdurand , I have a sneaky suspicion you work for Tesla, I heard a rumour that was there next design.

An ignighter would work better than a detonator, nitrocellulose is't a high explosive. Actually, a weak form was used to paint model airplane wings to pull the skin tight. It's also known as single base powder for those who partake of shooting sticks, when in need of some NC lacquor with none to be found I simply dissolved some single base powder in acetone. Presto, flammible paint.
I should probably mention that I was at an ATF approved facility with my explosives license in my pocket. Do not try this at home without proper permits, wavers, personal safety equipment, $42,000,000,000 insurance, and your own bunker.
