Will Tesla Make a Pickup Truck?

Tesla is one of the leading automakers in the world, and they have established themselves as one of the top players in the electric vehicle market. Tesla has been known for pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with electric vehicles, and they have consistently released cutting-edge cars that have set new standards for performance and design. One thing that Tesla has yet to do is release a pickup truck, but many people are wondering if they will ever make one.

Tesla has hinted at the idea of making a pickup truck in the past. Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, first mentioned the idea in 2016, when he said that Tesla was looking into designing an electric pickup truck that would “be really cool”. However, nothing concrete came out of these comments, and it wasn’t until 2018 when Musk tweeted about his plans for a “cyberpunk” inspired pickup truck.

Since then, there have been various rumors about what this truck could look like. Some reports suggest that it will be similar to a traditional pickup truck but with an all-electric drivetrain.

Others suggest that it will be a completely new design with innovative features such as self-driving capabilities and advanced sensors. In 2019, Musk teased an image of a pickup truck on Twitter which only added fuel to speculation.

In 2020, Tesla finally confirmed that they are working on an all-electric pickup truck. The company said that they are aiming to release it sometime in 2021 and they plan to reveal more details later this year. It is expected to be an incredibly powerful vehicle with up to 500 miles of range on a single charge.


It looks like Tesla is indeed planning on releasing an all-electric pickup truck sometime in 2021. The company has teased some details about it already, but we’ll need to wait until later this year for more information about this revolutionary vehicle. If it lives up to expectations, then Tesla’s electric pickup truck could be one of the most impressive vehicles ever made.
