Price, Specs, and Performance
Tesla helped make electric vehicles accessible and now wishes to get the better of one of the most popular sectors in America with its upcoming electrified pickup truck. Although exact details are obviously hard to nail down with the particular private company, its free spirit CEO, Elon Musk, has announced that the Tesla pickup truck will cost less than $50,000 and will outstrip the capabilities of the Ford F-150. However, there is no release date for this truck and Tesla hasn’t even shown a model yet.
Powertrain, Charging, and Performance
As time passes, few pieces of the puzzle are falling into place; we can only guess about the Tesla pickup truck’s powertrain, which will have to be extremely potent and robust to contest with the ability of gas-driven full-size trucks. It is in the cards that it will have dual electric motors to offer all-wheel drive and build a sizable amount of rotating force in order to provide competitive tow scores. Musk once tweeted that it could tow 300,000 pounds. By the time Tesla begins production—and with the world’s speedily evolving charging technology—it will seemingly use an advanced electrical design similar to the 800-volt system that will be introduced in the upcoming Porsche Taycan EV. This would enable the Tesla pickup truck to reload its battery much quicker than anything in the current Tesla lineup. Musk has also confidently claimed that his company’s truck would function better than the Porsche 911. Undeniably bold.
Interior and Technology
The Tesla pickup truck will have to handle the immeasurably different needs of the tradesmen and business people who shop in this competitive segment. This means more physical panels and less touchscreen; more hard-wearing materials and less white and smudge-prone, polished surfaces. While a standard pickup truck might be lucrative in the mid-size class, the popularity of full-size trucks can be partly credited to their numerous configurations.
Some added features include 240-volt power for all of the work tools, a unique drop-down rear door and it will parallel park automatically & have 360-degree cameras & sonar.
Still, we anticipate Tesla will be able to deliver its pickup with the latest roster of technology and driver-assistance features, especially bearing in mind its experience with autonomous and semi-autonomous drive modes.
