As we’ve reported before, Tesla’s first pickup model is expected to be released in Los Angeles in November, and it seems the big odds are real. Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed on overseas social media that the brand’s first pickup model will be launched near the SpaceX rocket plant in Los Angeles on November 21. According to previous reports, the car will probably sell for less than $50,000.
According to Tesla’s preview in March, the pickup model showcases the sci-fi electronics of the 1980s, but the preview has less information and can only see some of the body contours and the highly recognizable per-through light set design.
Tesla is known to have a minimalist design on the interior of its current models, and the overseas media have boldly mapped the interior of the new car. The front row of the pickup truck has only a driver’s exclusive seat, while the centre console has a centre-controlled multimedia screen on each side that resembles the Model 3.
Regarding the size and performance of the electric pickup, Musk revealed that it would be similar to the Ford Raptor F150, with a six-seat layout and a range of 400-500 miles (650-805 kilometers, or more). The new car will come standard with dual-motor all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, fully autonomous driving, air suspension, and more, and the battery pack will still be laid on the floor.
Since the launch of Tesla’s electric pickup plan, the car seems to have become one of the hot topics, and its renderings have been endless. If Musk hadn’t joked about it this time, he believes the mystery of Tesla’s electric pickup will soon be revealed.
