Tesla Truck, under $50,000 and better than a F150

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 this weekend, 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.” Based on previous comments, it sounds like the design of the Tesla pickup truck is going to be quite special. Musk added about the design during the podcast: “It’s got to have incredible functionally from a load carrying standpoint, look amazing – but it won’t look like a normal truck. It’s going to look pretty sci-fi. That means that it’s not going to be for everyone- like if somebody just wants to have a truck that looks like trucks have looked like for the last 20 to 40 years, it’s probably isn’t for them.” He confirmed that the cryptic teaser image released earlier this year was actually the front of the Tesla pickup truck:


quote:

“It’s going to be a truck that is more capable than other trucks. The goal is to be a better truck than a [Ford] F-150 in terms of truck-like functionality and be a better sports car than a standard [Porsche] 911. That’s the aspiration.”

None of that performance will matter if it looks anything like most of those renders.

From what I hear, Tesla needs to be more focused on a creating a structure and system for maintaining their current fleet of vehicles, and not rolling out new models.

Does it have an option for a machine gun for the bed of truck? If your going to steal something, might as well steal it all.

The type of people who typically buy trucks are never going to touch that unless you give it away.
