Tesla pickup truck to be unveiled in two to three months

Elon Musk tweeted that a few more details needs to be tweaked before revealing the Tesla pickup truck in about 2 to 3 months.

Tesla already has the Model S sedan, the Model X utility and the affordable Model 3. One could also add the more compact utility to this equation, the Model Y which is expected to enter the electric arena by next year. As for the Tesla Roadster, this 2.0 version of the sports car should, in theory at least, redefine the standards of the category.

But there is another type of vehicle that Tesla is working on right now: the pickup. And if we rely on a tweet from Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, the wait should not be very long since the latter just said it would be unveiled in two or three months. That would take us to an autumn presentation for Rivian R1T’s avowed rival, and GM and Ford’s power offensives in this hugely important niche in North America.

Elon Musk has already confessed in the past that he intended to give the Tesla truck a theoretical autonomy of between 400 and 500 miles (or between 643 and 804 km) that it would be all-wheel drive, thanks to the use of two electric motors, that the suspension would be adjustable, in addition to having impressive towing capabilities. As we have seen recently, Ford has demonstrated this with a prototype of its future electric pickup.

Better yet, Musk would target a base price under the psychological barrier of $50,000 USD. Still, it will take some time (or between two and three months) until we know more about it.
