Tesla Pickup Truck will have a futuristic approach in design. It is going to have “cyberpunk blade runner” look to it. A teaser image was launched by Tesla but nothing much was revealed by it. This in response leads to many creative concepts regarding the design.
Tesla is currently working on the release of the Tesla Model Y, Tesla Semi and Next-gen Roadster. Tesla Pickup Truck will be released when the work on these products is finished.
The announcement of postponing the Tesla Pickup Truck is a setback. As promised earlier Tesla is not able to follow its timeline of a release.
With the released dates being pushed back many competitor companies have got an edge over Tesla. There are many companies working on the electric truck like Workhorse, Bollinger and Rivian.
Rivian, a startup company unveiled the model of an electric truck in Los Angeles Auto show, last year and it was a huge hit. It is believed that Rivian has tested its first R1T truck at Tierra del Fugo and will be releasing it soon in the market. Rivian has drawn a large amount of investment from Amazon and Ford.
Tesla is a key player in the market of electric vehicles. Though it is facing a lot of competition yet it’s sale is always increasing. The review of the PT truck will be out in November and then we will get to know more about it. There is a lot of excitement about the electric trucks in the market and Tesla has to come out with an excellent product to woo its customers.
