    Mocked Tesla Cybertruck May Be Brilliant, Car Designer Says

    (Bloomberg) -- When Raphael Zammit saw Tesla Inc.’s Cybertruck pull onto the stage late Thursday, his initial reaction was a mix of shock and horror.Zammit, who is chair of the graduate program in transportation design at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, said his smartphone started blowing up with texts from auto designer friends expressing similar sentiments. But after a few minutes, Zammit, who has worked as a senior designer for General Motors Co., Hyundai Motor Co., and Volkswagen AG, started to see the truck through a different lens.“It appears at first glance to be so naïve,” said Zammit. “But it might be -- and this is a big might -- one of the most brilliant moves ever, and the market will tell us. It’s not designed for designers.”Tesla’s electric pickup concept, which has a triangular peaked roof and blocky, video-game graphic lines, has generated a flood of mocking memes and online commentary. Some of that was aimed at a demonstration by the vehicle’s chief designer of its “Tesla armor glass,” which went spectacularly awry when he unintentionally smashed two of the truck’s windows with a metallic ball.Despite the snafu, the Cybertruck got enormous publicity, and scores of customers have placed $100 deposits for a vehicle that won’t be in production until late 2021 at the earliest.Wall Street was underwhelmed with the pickup, which starts at $39,000. Tesla shares dropped as much as 7% Friday, and Barclays Plc analyst Brian Johnson concluded Detroit’s three automakers, which control 92% of the U.S. truck market, can “breathe a sigh of relief.”But Zammit says the polarizing design -- which may be trying to shatter comparisons to other iconic vehicles like GM’s hulking Hummer and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV’s husky Jeep Wrangler -- may serve Tesla well on a number of fronts, from marketing to manufacturing.Here are Zammit’s comments on the Cybertruck concept:Marketing Move“From an intellectual standpoint, it’s ‘no compromise’ to the extreme. These are words that car designers use all the time, but this literally is it. I’ve never seen anything that is this raw, it’s like a mechanic made it.”“When I saw the price tag, that’s when it clicked. I thought, ‘This is a business move, and a story move.’ The vehicle is truly a marketing move.”Profit Straight Off“The reason I say it may be just the most brilliant thing ever is it may be the cheapest vehicle ever to manufacture. Stamping and tooling is extremely expensive, bending glass is extremely expensive.”“It might be economically amazing for Tesla. Look at details on the exterior of the car, it’s so de-contented. There’s so little investment on the aesthetic side, it’s almost like they could pull a profit straight off, possibly even on the lowest model.”Big in China“The market in China -- I could see them receiving this even better than the niche market that wants to own a movie prop in the States.”“That market also has a slightly greater affinity for things that are extreme. And again, being able to say ‘I have the best of’ -- it’s a moving, driving superlative.”Hummer vs Wrangler“You can’t beat the Wrangler at what it does. Everyone knows the Wrangler is a simple vehicle, but it has the place as being the most functional, and therefore it has a cult following. I am wondering if part of their strategy was, ‘How do you beat the Wrangler? You go even more extreme.’”“Hummer had as its tagline --‘Like nothing else.’”“A lot of the truck market just wants to be able to say they’ve got the most intense, the most off-road, the most extreme. I can imagine some other name plates that might be jealous that they now have a literally bulletproof car.”“It’s all about being able to have the bragging rights.”Shattered Glass“The smashing of the glass may have been the most tragic thing in this space that I’ve ever seen.”“If he didn’t have the rocket steel, if it wasn’t bulletproof -- and if that glass hadn’t broken -- the story is complete.”“It’s not about how it looks, it’s about just being the most different.”(Adds reference to orders in fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Gabrielle Coppola in New York at gcoppola@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Chester Dawson at cdawson54@bloomberg.net, Cécile DauratFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Tesla Truck Demo Gets Awkward as Shatterproof Windows Shatter

    (Bloomberg) -- Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk took to the stage late Thursday to reprise a familiar role: pitching a future vehicle to a throng of adoring fans. This time, it was the “Cybertruck” -- his name for Tesla’s new electric pickup.The angular vehicle, which has a stainless-steel skin, starts at $39,900 and will come in three variants, Musk told a packed audience in Hawthorne, California. Customers can order the truck with a deposit of just $100, though production “nears in late 2021,” Tesla said on its website.After a “Blade Runner”-inspired introduction, Musk had Tesla’s long time chief designer, Franz von Holzhausen, smash the truck’s steel exterior with a sledgehammer, showing that it did not dent.But it was the second demonstration, of “Tesla armor glass,” that was the real show stopper: von Holzhausen unintentionally shattered two of the truck’s windows with a metallic ball, causing Musk to say “Oh my f---ing god.” Given how product launches are usually scripted and rehearsed, the broken windows were the evening’s big surprise.Tesla shares fell 6.1% to $333.04 on Friday, the sharpest decline in almost two months.The evening began with a slide show of standard pickup trucks throughout the years, and Musk’s vow to make something different that runs on sustainable energy.“You want a truck that’s really tough, not fake tough,” Musk said, in what seemed to be a veiled swipe at Ford Motor Co.’s slogan. “A truck you can take a sledgehammer to that doesn’t dent.”Some industry veterans said Tesla will likely have to tone down the design specifications to make it commercially viable. “It’s science fiction. If it ever comes to pass, it will look different and have different specs,” Bob Lutz, a former senior executive who worked at all three Detroit automakers before retiring, said in an email. “A bold new design direction, but in my view not appealing or commercial.”Not for ContractorsTesla fans in the audience liked what they saw.“It’s like something out of a movie set,” said Elizabeth Lepek of Marina del Rey, California, a current Tesla Model X owner who placed a $100 deposit for the Cybertruck. “It’s so futuristic. I like the design of it. There’s nothing quite like it on the road.”But traditional truck buyers are a tougher audience and less likely to be impressed by Silicon Valley sizzle.“It misses the core truck buyer,” said Gene Munster, a managing partner at venture capital firm Loup Ventures. “A contractor is not going to show up to a work site in this truck. That said, Tesla will still sell some of them.”More: You Think the Tesla Cybertruck Looks Stupid? OK, BoomerThe hashtag cybertruck quickly began trending on Twitter as potential customers started sharing their views about the futuristic design -- and the window snafu.And though it will take a long time before the Cybertruck hits the streets, that’s something Tesla customers are used to. Musk unveiled a Semi truck two years ago, but that vehicle has yet to enter volume production.Musk tweeted Friday the truck also will offer an optional two-person all-terrain vehicle, signaling Tesla’s plan to enter the off-road vehicle market.The lucrative full-size pickup market in the U.S. is dominated by the Detroit 3: Ford Motor Co.’s F-150, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV’s Ram 1500 and General Motors Co.’s Chevy Silverado. Japanese automakers have spent two decades and billions of dollars to get in on the gravy train, but U.S. brands still control almost 92% of the half-ton segment, according to IHS Markit.More: Tesla’s Mocked Cybertruck May Be Brilliant, Car Designer Says“The design will be questioned, but over time the specs will help win over pickup loyalists,” said analyst Ben Kallo of Robert W. Baird. “But the volumes are expected to be low, and the Model 3 and Model Y continue to be the focus.”(Updates with industry executive comment from eighth paragraph)\--With assistance from Thuy Ong, Natnicha Chuwiruch, Derek Wallbank and David Welch.To contact the reporters on this story: Dana Hull in San Francisco at dhull12@bloomberg.net;Ed Ludlow in San Francisco at eludlow2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Chester Dawson at cdawson54@bloomberg.net, Ville HeiskanenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
