People have a lot to say after Cybertruck had to be towed after getting stuck on small hill

Images show one of the trucks being towed by a regular pickup truck

An image of a Cybertruck has got people talking after the truck was shown getting a tow from a regular pickup truck.

So far Tesla's Cybertruck has drawn attention for its unusual design, as well as safety concerns about its build.

But now people have piled on after seeing an image of one of angular vehicles needing a tow.

In the image, the Cybertruck can be seen down a small slope which is covered in some snow.

The snow doesn't appear to be particularly deep, and while there is a slope, it's not a hugely steep or treacherous one.

Meanwhile in the background a Ford pickup truck can be seen with a tow line extending to the front of the stricken Cybertruck.

A video shows the Cybertruck's wheels spinning helplessly as it struggles to get any traction even with the tow attached, and equipped with off-road tires.

The caption for the video, which was posted to Instagram, says that the 'RC' version of the vehicle reportedly had issues with traction control due to a software bug.

Not only that, but the caption detailed that the vehicle was not equipped with pickup points or recovery points, which would make the process of helping the truck easier.

The video could prove embarrassing for Tesla as the company has had a tit for tat exchange with Ford on social media over the two company's trucks.

Tesla CEO posted a video showing a Cybertruck pulling a Ford F-150, while Ford CEO posted a video of a Ford F-150 tackling a difficult test hill which a Cybertruck had appeared to struggle with.

People were quick to share their thoughts on the unfortunate situation.

One person posted an image from the video to Reddit with the caption "Is the [Ford] F-150 recovery truck included in the Founders edition?"

Some people rushed to the Cybertruck's defence.

One wrote: "Just finding the limits, a software tweak and it all good."

A second wrote: "This RC prototype didn’t have right software for off road conditions."

But others were quick to pile on at the sight of the expensive Cybertruck foundering in seemingly easy conditions.

One joked: "You got it backwards bud. The Cyberbeast just caught its prey and [is] about to pull it in for the kill."

A second wrote: "Cybertruck can get stuck off road in 2.6 seconds. Faster than any truck on earth."

Meanwhile, another was more scathing, posting: "It doesn't at all seem like the type of situation that mandates a tow recovery.

"I'd be really embarrassed if I couldn't make it up that grade with some snow. If I saw this I'd stop payment on my $120k check."

UNILAD has reached out to Tesla for comment.
