Elon Musk Confirms A Tesla Pickup Truck Is In The Pipeline… After Model Y

If you can recall, during the Tesla Semi unveiling event, Tesla also made a surprise (or maybe not…) announcement of the second-generation Tesla Roadster and more crucially, tease something that sets the heart of fans of Tesla and pickup enthusiasts’ heart fluttering. It was a pickup truck. A supersize one, to be exact, shown in a render that had a bed huge enough to swallow a F-150 Supercrew almost whole. Wait. That’s no pickup truck. It’s a truck and if the render was a projection of Elon Musk’s mind, then that thing there is probably of a Unimog class truck.

After devoting three quarter of the time to Tesla Semi at the recent Tesla unveiling, Elon Musk finally revealed the new follow up the original Tesla Roadster called, ermmm, Tesla Roadster.

Tesla’s Electric Cargo Hauling Truck Has A Supercar Drag Coefficient

So, here it is. The much anticipated Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, is finally revealed. I am not going to lie. I have not love a semi this much until now.

While aesthetically fabulous, it is, however, secondary. What’s impressive here is what it can really do. For starter, it is faster than your average car, making 0-60 in 5 seconds without a trailer and way, way quicker than any diesel-powered semi.
