The Tesla pickup truck, which Elon Musk called the “coolest car I’ve ever seen” is likely to be presented in November this year. It was expected that an electric pickup truck, inspired by science fiction, will be shown this summer or, at the latest, in October, but everyone knows how Mask relates to his own deadlines, so the presentation will be held in November.
In addition to the early conceptual image of the pickup shown at the Tesla Semi opening in 2017 and the image posted on Twitter in May, little is known about the Tesla pickup. Musk described this car last year as follows:
“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.”
”It’s gonna have a lot of titanium,” – Musk added later.

Musk has already said that he doesn’t care if anyone buys a new truck, saying that he will create a more traditional pickup in the future if this one will not be sold.
According to preliminary data, a single charge of electric pickup batteries will be enough to overcome up to 800 km of track. The towing power of the truck should be about 136 tons.
According to Musk, his team does not want the new car to be too expensive. So, the starting price of a pickup should be less than 50 thousand US dollars – as possible variations of the lower limit of the price, Musk indicated 49 thousand dollars, adding that ideally, Tesla Pickup could cost even cheaper.
