The Tesla pickup truck has been called by Elon Musk as the coolest car that he has ever seen. The car is now facing a delay to its reveal.

There is an early concept image of the pickup truck which was shown at the unveiling of the Tesla Semi in 2017. In an interview, Elon Musk said, “It’s gonna be like a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, “Blade Runner” pickup truck. It’s gonna be awesome, it’s gonna be amazing. This will be heart-stopping. It stops my heart. It’s like, oh, it’s great. It’s gonna have a lot of titanium.”
The Tesla pickup will face a lot of competition when it launches. Ford has also been teasing its all electric F-150 for a while. They have highly stressed on the fact that it very similar to Ford’s best selling pickups. The electric F-150 might possibly hit the dealerships as early as 2021.
