He referred to it as the Cyber Truck, which means Tesla could become CyberS3XY.
Recently, Tesla released a bit of new info on the Tesla truck in its Q3 earnings report. Well, maybe it's not info, but rather lack thereof.
Tesla has yet to determine a production site for the pickup truck, which could be taken to mean several different things. Perhaps the truck is still a bit far off and a site won't be picked for a while. Or maybe, a whole new site will be needed to produce the truck in high volume. We'd place our bets on the latter.
If priced below $50,000, as Musk suggested in the past, sales would surely be through the roof, so Tesla would indeed need a new factory to produce the truck in a massive volume.
The Tesla truck will make the Ram seem toy-like and will beat the Ford F-150 too. Lofty goals, but Tesla really never fails to deliver on the performance front.
In top-level trim, the Tesla truck should boast a range of between 400 and 500 miles, possibly more. As one might suspect, it will be all-wheel drive with a motor for each axle. Musk also noted that the suspension will dynamically adjust according to its load. Being electric and a truck means it will have gobs of torque. Musk once tweeted that it could tow 300,000 pounds.
Some additional features include 240-volt power for all of your work tools, a unique drop-down tailgate and it will parallel park automatically & have 360-degree cameras & sonar.
There's even some speculation that the Tesla truck will be the first Tesla equipped with the million-mile battery that's being developed by Tesla researcher Jeff Dahn and Jessie Harlow.
It seems this could be the vehicle that takes Tesla to a whole new level.
