Elon Musk confirmed the official date of Tesla’s cyberpunk pickup today on Twitter. November 21st is that date.
About a month ago we confirmed the month of the launch, now we have a date. Tesla’s cyberpunk pickup will be unveiled on November 21st in Los Angeles near the SpaceX rocket factory, tweeted Elon Musk.
In another tweet, right after he said “The date is strangely familiar …” while linking to the opening titles of the 1982 movie Blade Runner. The Sci-Fi movie opens to “LOS ANGELES – NOVEMBER, 2019”.
Tesla’s CEO claimed all sorts of things over the last year. This ultra-futuristic pickup truck would have a 300,000 lb towing capacity, is supposed to have a starting price of less than $50,000 and will be a better truck than an F-150.
The two last comments are coming from the appearance of Musk on Ride the Lighting podcast earlier this summer.
He also mentioned, during an interview with Recode a year ago he was “personally most excited about the pickup truck.” Why?
“Well I can’t talk about the details, but it’s gonna be like a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, “Blade Runner” pickup truck. It’s gonna be awesome, it’s gonna be amazing. This will be heart-stopping. It stops my heart. It’s like, oh, it’s great,” he answered.
