Could Tesla be entering the pickup truck game?

It was back in January of 2016 that Elon Musk admitted in an on-camera interview that Tesla is “quite likely” to build a truck in the future. Pressed for an explanation, the CEO simply remarked, “it’s sort of a logical thing for us to do in the future.”

Well, we decided to play with the idea of a Tesla pickup and what it might look like. Of course, no one outside of Tesla has any solid proof or knowledge of the pickup’s specifics, so this is pure speculation. Still, it’s a fun topic to throw around.

Tesla is currently working to fulfill orders for the Model X SUV while preparing the upcoming Model 3 sedan for its official launch. Aside from expanding its Supercharger network throughout the country, Tesla’s agenda seems free after the Model 3 hits driveways sometime in 2017. That leaves room for the all-electric automaker to take on the pickup truck segment. But why a pickup, you ask? Well the segment is experiencing impressive growth, especially in the mid-size class. Jumping into the fray could spell big profits for Tesla.

Obviously producing a pickup presents a slew of engineering challenges not faced with the sedans or crossover. In order to be competitive, the Tesla pickup will have to offer respectable towing and hauling capacities while maintaining a decent battery range, have the ability to traverse rough terrain, and yet maintain a similar battery range as the Model X when unloaded. Tesla engineers will undoubtedly be put to the test.

So let’s dive into what we foresee as the Tesla pickup.

Why the Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Better Than the Rivian R1T

Why the Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Better Than the Rivian R1T

You have Elon Musk as the face of the company; isn’t that enough already?

The war of electric pickup trucks is hot right now and, while there are multiple players in the segment like Fisker, Atlis, and Bollinger, all eyes are on Rivian and Tesla. The former has already announced most of the features and specs for its R1T pickup, but there’s not much we know about the Tesla pickup. We’ve yet to even see the actual truck, and despite this, there are a lot of reasons to believe that the Tesla pickup truck, called the Cybertruck for now, will be better than the R1T.

The Tesla Cybertruck To Be Revealed On November 21 2019, But Will It Be Used as a Military Truck Too?

The Tesla Cybertruck To Be Revealed On November 21 2019, But Will It Be Used as a Military Truck Too?

Elon Musk has finally revealed the Cybertruck’s reveal date, but the likelihood of it being used as a military truck is slim

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the Tesla pickup truck, now called the Cybertruck. In the past couple of days, the biggest news is that it will be revealed on November 21 near the SpaceX rocket factory in Los Angeles at a standalone event. The reveal date coincides with the Los Angeles Auto Show, but we all know how Musk operates. Does he give a damn about it? Of course not!

On the other side of the spectrum, there was some incorrect reporting that Elon Musk was pitching the "Cybertruck" as a military vehicle. He has since said that was far from the case, and we’ve got the scoop on that below too.

Will the Tesla Pickup Go by the Name Cybertruck?

Will the Tesla Pickup Go by the Name Cybertruck?

If it does, I will have no qualms whatsoever

The upcoming Tesla pickup truck is the next big thing in the pickup truck industry. There are quite a few things we already know about the truck, like its towing capacity (up to 300,000 pounds) and starting price (under $50,000), but we still don’t know what it’ll be called; well, we didn’t know until now. During Tesla’s third-quarter 2019 earnings conference call, Musk referred the pickup truck as the "Cybertruck" while calling it the company’s “best product ever.” Was this just a nickname, or will it just be called "Cybertruck?" And what happened to the "Model" moniker?

Big Surprise –The Tesla Model Z Pickup is Delayed

Big Surprise –The Tesla Model Z Pickup is Delayed

Maybe in November? December? It’s Elon Musk, so who really knows?

As the battle of electric pickup trucks between Ford, Rivian, and Tesla rages on at an annoying slow crawl with nothing but teasers and overzealous gloating (I’m looking at you ford with your train-pulling stunt), Tesla’s Elon Musk as pushed the debut of the Tesla Model Z Pickup even further back. So when will we actually get to see it? Well, with Musk’s overly optimistic history, it’s anybody’s guess, but we at least have a rough idea.

We Made the Mistake of Searching for "Tesla Pickup" on Facebook and the Results Are Something Else

This will stop only when Tesla launches the truck

The Tesla Pickup truck has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced. Surprisingly, there are a lot of details out, like the towing capacity, and even the drivetrain specs to some extent, but no one knows what it looks like. The so-called ‘official’ images don’t give out much either. There are a lot of impressive renderings out there; some very logically thought out designs that might be close to what the actual truck could look like. However, we decided to search for the truck on Facebook and found some very ‘creative masterpieces.’

What Does Ford Need to Do to Kill the Tesla Pickup Truck?

What Does Ford Need to Do to Kill the Tesla Pickup Truck?

Tesla is all set to take away the lunch money from Ford’s breadwinner and the latter needs to act fast on it

The invasion of EVs is nothing short of a paradigm shift in the auto industry. A segment that seemed to remain untouched and wary of electrification for the longest period is finally starting to look vulnerable and at the brink of a major breakthrough, thanks to companies like Tesla and Rivian. Since Ford has been dominating the pickup truck segment for over four decades now, it has the biggest target on its back. For now, Ford has managed to weather the storm by keeping the electrified competition at bay – well, to an extent – but that doesn’t mean it will be able to sit on the throne when electrification takes prominence.

For now, the three big names here are Tesla, Rivian, and Ford. Although Rivian is doing well and we are excited for the launch of its R1T pickup truck, Ford’s biggest challenger will be the EV Czar, Tesla. Here are 11 points we’ve listed that Ford needs to do to have the upper hand on Tesla’s pickup truck – that will apparently be called the Tesla Model B - and rule the segment when the dust settles.

Elon Musk Could Reveal the Tesla Pickup Soon; Says It’s "Close" to Being Ready

Hopefully, even the production commences soon and deliveries happen before Rivian rolls out its R1T truck

Tesla has been quite hush-hush about its electric pickup truck. Other than a few details that Musk lets out through his tweets, we have nothing. However, those tweets are worth their weight in gold. The latest tweet from the EV czar is about its launch date. A twitter user asked when the truck would be revealed, and Musk replied saying we could see it in two-three months. This is a big revelation because this is one of the most anticipated EVs to date.

Someone Caught the Rare and Elusive Tesla Pickup on Video!

Someone Caught the Rare and Elusive Tesla Pickup on Video!

Do you think Musk would actually let the product roam around in the open after creating years of hype?

The Tesla pickup truck is all the sedation these days, but no one has seen it or caught its test mules or anything. However, this channel on YouTube called ’TorqueNews" apparently caught the pickup truck comfortably cruising on the highway completely undisguised. Is this the real deal? Well, it’s not. Tesla is not known to test its vehicles out in the open whether disguised or undisguised. It probably tests them somewhere in the outer space along with the SpaceX Roadster; or in the Hyperloop tunnels! You wouldn’t see a ’Musk’ito out in the open from Tesla’s factory, let ’Elon’ a pickup truck (I know how horrible these puns sound).

Ford, Rivian, or Tesla? The Electric Pickup Truck Battle Has Already Begun!

Ford, Rivian, or Tesla? The Electric Pickup Truck Battle Has Already Begun!

None of these companies have a threatening advantage over the other two

The latest segment to be hit by the electrification bug is pickup trucks. Although some electric firms - Tesla and Rivian - have been into electrification for years, mainstream automakers have also decided to jump in before it gets too late. The Tesla and Rivian war has been on since the two decided to enter the electric pickup truck foray. The two have been approaching the segment differently and have kind of eased into their spaces. Now that Ford is developing an electric powertrain of its own for the F-150, things could get even more exciting. I’ve listed out five possible scenarios that may or may not be hypothetical.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2020 Tesla Pickup

The Tesla pickup should be here this year and we have the low-down on it

Tesla is about to take the pickup world by storm with an all-electric truck that will most likely be revealed this year. The vehicle that’s set to be shown this year won’t be the final production-spec model, though, as we’ve come to expect from Tesla, but it will be a very close preview of that model.
