Tesla CEO Elon Musk Promises To Build Electric Pickup Truck

Musk recently asked for feedback from Tesla owners on Twitter. Elon Musk could change that over the next few years with the introduction of a mid-size pickup truck.

Without a trailer, the Tesla Semi achieves 0 to 60 miles per hour in five seconds, compared to 15 seconds in a comparable diesel truck.

Given that Tesla generally reveals its cars a year before it actually begins production, Musk's timeline of when the company will begin making the pick-up makes sense.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday that the company will begin production of its first electric pick-up truck after it begins building the Model Y SUV, which is expected to go into production in late 2019 or early 2020.

'Have had the core design/engineering elements in my mind for nearly 5 years.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk Promises To Build Electric Pickup Truck

The Model Y is an electric SUV that's due for release in about two years. "Am dying to build it".

Musk unveiled the Tesla Semi and a second generation roadster in November, with the former receiving hundreds of reservations from companies like PepsiCo, WalMart and UPS.

'Most notably for truck drivers and other travelers on the road, it climbs five per cent grades at a steady 65 mph, whereas a diesel truck maxes out at 45 mph on a five per cent grade'. The tweet hit a sweet spot for people who are fans of both Tesla and pickups, scratching an itch that has generated a number of theoretical renderings of what a Tesla pickup truck might be like - including a complete photo gallery.

Musk didn't give a revised date for when Tesla would officially announce a pickup in his Tuesday tweet, but he said that the truck would start rolling off Tesla production lines some time after the Model Y.
