Elon Musk says Tesla electric truck to be unwrapped before Christmas

Starship Mk1 Day Elon Musk says Tesla electric truck to be unwrapped before Christmas

Tesla will reveal its electric ute on November 21, as it prepares to take on the Rivian R1T and upcoming pure-electric Ford F-150.

The location in Los Angeles, near the SpaceX rocket factory, gives some insight into Tesla holding a separate event for the truck's release, instead of a preshow unveiling at the Los Angeles Motor Show, which is being held on November 22 to December 1.

As ZDNet sister site CNET's Roadshow notes, it's not known yet whether the Cybertruck will be a production vehicle or a concept auto.

For electric vehicles, the unveil of the Tesla Cyber-truck will be one of several key events for Tesla, along with the production start next year of the mass-market Model Y electric SUV based around the highly successful Model 3.

Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk set a date for the debut of the electric-car maker's first pickup and further tied the truck to the famous sci-fi movie that inspired its design.

In June 2018, he said the pickup truck "will have power outlets allowing use of heavy-duty 240V, high-power tools in field all day". He didn't have much else to say about the vehicle, but called it a "cybertruck" and noted the date corresponds with the setting of Blade Runner. Musk has been toying with the idea of a truck since at least 2013.

Musk promised their truck would be "a better sports auto than a standard Porsche 911", as well as a "better truck than a Ford F-150 in terms of truck-like functionality".
