A Youtuber tired of waiting for the Tesla pickup truck made her own, the Truckla.
Popular Youtuber Simone Giertz posted a video today of her new Tesla pickup truck. The thing is that it’s not an official Tesla truck but her own creation.
The Youtube video caption reads: “I got tired of waiting for Tesla to release their pickup truck, so I made my own. And I named it Truckla.”
Based on a new Tesla Model 3 Standard Range, Giertz tell was the cheapest option versus buying a used one. But why make it with a Model 3 compared to a Model S? Because the Model 3 as a steel chassis while the Model S and Model X have an aluminum chassis. It’s therefore easier to work on the Model 3.
With the help of friends, she turned her brand-new Tesla Model 3 into what she now calls Truckla.
The truck bed is made from an older Ford F-150 while the rear window came from a GMC Canyon.
The complete vehicle appeared in a fake ad she created with a crew and can be seen above.
