Musk had said that during the "darkest days" for Tesla Model 3, he wanted to sell the company off.
According to The Verge, more than 36,000 of the tiny cars sold in January compared to nearly 21,500 Model 3s, and the Hong Guang sold just more than 20,000 units in February compared to just under 13,700 Tesla 3s.
The Elon Musk-run company in 2019 launched the Model 3 Standard Range version for $35,000 — delivering on a promise made long ago.
The electric-car maker recently rolled out a pedestrian noisemaker for the Model 3 sedan.
A cross-country road trip in a Cybertruck would undoubtedly generate an enormous amount of traction on all social platforms for the truck and the manufacturer.

Tesla said it expected to deliver between 360,000 and 400,000 vehicles this year, representing 45-65 per cent growth.
Tesla has decided to handle the delivery preparation of Model 3 itself in order to accelerate the process.
"Tesla is on track for a production record this quarter but slightly behind its ambitious Model 3 goal," the ELetrek reported late on Sunday.
