Musk moreover revealed in the tweet that keeping in mind the Blade Runner inspiration source for the truck, Tesla had played the end titles from Blade Runner after the completion of the Model Y webcast.
Musk has not revealed much about the specifications of the truck except that it would be a 6-seater “big truck” with a mile range exceeding 400-500. Moreover, he had previously declared this vehicle to be the one among all the current new vehicle programs which excites him the most, calling it a futuristic ‘cyberpunk’ truck, and says that the vehicle might just be “too futuristic for most people.”
The new Tesla electric pickup truck is set to be unveiled sometime in 2019, and the production timeline of this vehicle is uncertain as of now.
