Tesla Pickup Rendering Proves A Muscular Design Can Work on an EV

We don’t know much about Tesla’s upcoming pickup, but a recent rendering has us dreaming about the possibilities.

The Tesla pickup rendering comes from Emre Husmen who is credited with a number of renderings including the next-generation Tesla Model S. Once again, Husmen went with an agressive design that works perfectly on a Tesla truck.

More rugged and muscular than the Rivian R1T, it’s bold tires and sharp lines combined with bulging body panels give the Tesla pickup a very traditional gasoline-powered look. Except as we know, the electric Tesla truck will be battery-power only.

No specs have been provided by Tesla just yet, but we expect to see current Tesla powertrains in the pickup. That means anywhere from 400 kilometers to almost 500 kilometers of range and a dual-motor setup with all-wheel drive.

We’re curious to see the final towing capacity numbers as we know the Rivian truck can tow up to 11,000 pounds. We imagine Tesla will want to get close to those numbers but for now the most you can get out of a Tesla is 5,000 pounds in the Model X.

We expect to see a new Tesla pickup before the end of the year with a release date sometime in 2021 or 2022.
