The debut will take place in Los Angeles.
Motor1.com's sister site InsideEVs first revealed this potential debut date in late October via a spot-on estimate gleaned by their good friend Sean Mitchell. As it turns out, he was right. Is there something he knew that no one else did? Who knows, but we expect the design of the Tesla truck to be very polarising, as Musk has now hinted on several occasions.
Outside of its appearance, quite a bit is known in regards to the Tesla truck. Here we'll run through some of the highlights:
According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the upcoming Tesla truck will have a target price of under $50,000 (approx. £38,850 at the current exchange rate). Musk stated:
“You should be able to buy a really great truck for $49k or less.”
In top-level trim, the Tesla truck should boast a range of between 400 and 500 miles, possibly more. As one might suspect, it will be all-wheel drive with a motor for each axle. Musk also noted that the suspension will dynamically adjust according to its load. Being electric and a truck means it will have gobs of torque. Musk once tweeted that it could tow 300,000 pounds (136,000 kg).
Some additional features include 240-volt power for all of your work tools, a unique drop-down tailgate and it will parallel park automatically & have 360-degree cameras & sonar.
As for production plans and availability? Those are both complete unknowns at this point in time. Tesla still has to get the Model Y into production, plus it's working on both the Tesla Roadster and Tesla Semi. The Tesla truck could be fast-tracked, but there are no details available right now.
