American car makers Ford and General Motors are now starting to produce their own electric vehicles.
All carmakers want to abandon the King of the Hills, and few brands are giving Tesla fierce competition.
Ford CEO Jim Farley claimed that Blue Oval's new pickup truck could supercharge Tesla.
He made the comment as a mockery of the candidate, but is there any truth to his claim?
