Musk has previously offered a few very broad hints about the Tesla pickup, saying that it wants an irritable, Blade Runner looks at what may not appeal to everyone. endless speculation on social media.
Musk has also suggested that it will be "better than an F-150" with a range of up to 500 miles and the ability to drag up to £ 300,000 may be a bit of an exaggeration. But then again, Ford released a video last week of its electric pickup prototype If a train weighing more than £ 1 million, then everything is possible.
The all-electric pickup car is what can really tip the scales in favor of electric vehicles, especially in the US, where the pickup has replaced apple pie as the main symbol for America.
Musk has suggested that the Tesla pickup will start at under $ 50,000, which is important. The big America pickups are in love with selling for between $ 40,000 and $ 100,000, so the Tesla offer will compete top-of-the-car with vehicles that cost about the same money. In many cases, Tesla can actually sell for less money than petrol and diesel powered competitors.
The Ford video mentioned above received an enthusiastic "Wow!" From my friend driving a Ford F-150, which he uses to tow the travel trailer up and down the eastern seaboard. Giving him a ride in the LEAF gave him a hint of the pleasures of instantaneous torque available from electric motors, but seeing something much like the vehicle parked in his driveway and the rope more than a million pounds, which really aroused his interest . A few days ago he and my wife poked me with questions about how to own and run an electric vehicle, how long it takes to charge, where chargers are located, and what it costs to keep an electric car charged. A year ago that conversation would not have happened.
The Tesla pickup – whatever its name – is aimed right at the heart of the US new vehicle market. It can easily be the car that finally disturbs the minds of US drivers and sends mainstream car manufacturers that can be flown. Electric pickup trucks may well mark the turning point when EVs go mainstream and dominate the car market.
