esla Pickup Truck - Truckla

An in-depth look at just about everything that's known about the Tesla

The Tesla truck is always front and center on everyone's EV minds these
days. It's perhaps the most anticipated electric vehicle of all time, yet
not all is known of the truck.

According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the upcoming Tesla truck will have a
target price of under $50,000. Musk stated:

     “You should be able to buy a really great truck for $49k or less.”

Musk added that the capabilities of the Tesla truck will be unmatched. In
the past, Musk commented on the abilities of the Ram truck, stating that
it'll be more or less toy-like compared to the Tesla truck. Range of the
Tesla truck is expected to be around 500 miles. The unveiling is still
supposedly set for sometime later this year.  Musk once tweeted that it
could tow 300,000 pounds.

Regarding the look, there's been any number of renders of a possible Tesla
truck produced over the past couple of years, but we've yet to see the
actual truck to really have an idea of what it will look like, though Musk
does say it'll have a certain sort of sci-fi appearance.

This video does a swell job at outlining what to expect from the Tesla
truck. It's chock full of known details and even concludes with some footage
of Truckla, the converted Tesla Model 3 truck. Give the video a watch to
find out basically everything we know of the Tesla truck.

says Elon Musk Elon .

    Musk made interesting new comments about the upcoming Tesla Pickup
truck, including a first hint at the starting price, which he aims to keep
under $50,000, and some of the functionality.

    Tesla’s CEO has previously sought suggestions for features to add to the
Tesla truck under development and he revealed some planned features, like an
option for 400 to 500 miles of range, Dual Motor All-wheel-drive powertrain
with dynamic suspension, as well as ‘300,000 lbs of towing capacity’.

    During an appearance on Ride the Lighting podcast, Musk made some new
comments about the upcoming electric pickup truck. He confirmed that Tesla
is aiming to keep the starting price under $50,000:

    “We don’t want it to be really expensive. I think it got to start at
less than $50,000 – it’s got to be like $49,000 starting price max. Ideally
less. It just can’t be unaffordable. It’s got to be something that’s
affordable. There will be versions of the truck that will be more expensive,
but you’ve got to be able to get a really great truck for $49,000 or less.”

    The CEO has previously mentioned that the Tesla Truck will not look out
of place in the set of the sci-fi Blade Runner franchise, and he has also
noted that the vehicle will be loaded to the teeth with tech. In a series of
tweets last year, Musk noted that the Tesla pickup would have six seats,
400-500 miles of range per charge, dual motor AWD, a 240-volt connection for
heavy-duty tools, and up to 300,000 pounds of towing capacity, to name a

    Nevertheless, considering the vehicle’s starting price, Tesla seems to
be looking to release a version of the vehicle that is specifically aimed at
customers that need functionality and utility. As a final note, Elon Musk
also confirmed that the teaser image shared by Tesla during the Model Y
unveiling is the front of the pickup truck. Let the next round of Tesla
Truck renders begin, at least until the electric car maker unveils the
vehicle later this year.
