Prophecy of the Tesla Pickup Truck Appearance
A Glance at what the Tesla Pickup Truck May Look Like
Considering that the light truck and SUV market pretty much dominates US vehicle sales these days, it’s no surprise that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that Tesla is currently in the process of developing an EV pickup truck. Unfortunately, the electronic vehicle corporation has not officially announced any official statements about how this pickup truck may look, but like most of Tesla’s vehicles, it will surely have a sleek and aerodynamic design like no other pickup trucks currently on the market. I also predict that it will most likely have several aspects that closely resemble some of the other Tesla models.
For now, the only things that we have to go on for the appearance of the Tesla pickup truck are artist renderings. One of the most shared of those renderings comes from the artist Andrei Avarvarii who has rendered a great interpretation of what a proper Tesla pickup may look like. As shown in the images, these renderings somewhat resemble Tesla’s Model 3 and Model X designs, but with the back tapering into a stylish truck bed. This design has great aerodynamic features with an obvious Telsa touch. You may recognize that the headlights closely resemble those of the Model S lights.
There hasn’t been a whole lot of talk as to the size of the truck bed, but I expect that we may see two models – one that fits more of a semi-pickup design and one that has a more functional, large-sized truck bed. One thing about these renderings that I love, which could very likely happen, is the large “Tesla” logo stamped across the rear of the tailgate much like that of Dodge RAM and Toyota Tundra trucks.
When it all comes down to it, the most important aspects that a pickup truck should possess are utility, function, and performance; however, there’s absolutely no reason why it can’t have a great appearance as well. With Tesla taking a stab at the EV pickup truck, we expect nothing less than a great looking truck that excels in all of the other aspects that I just mentioned.
One thing is clear, and that is that Tesla needs to ramp up the pace for design and production. There are other companies that are quickly gaining speed on launching EV pickup trucks that are almost guaranteed to fly off the lots. Whichever design the new Tesla EV pickup truck receives, it is projected to be released to the public within the next 6 – 9 months and is projected to hit the lot by 2019 or 2020.
