Tesla CEO Elon Musk just announced that the upcoming Tesla electric pickup truck actually looks like some sort of armored military personnel driver. Maybe it looks something like that?
We haven't been in the future (have you?), So we're not sure what an armored personnel officer from the future looks like, but if we had to guess, it's probably pretty close to the rendering discussed here.
The Tesla truck reveal is scheduled for next month, and the world's eyes will surely be included in this debut.
Besides the looks, we actually know pretty much about the Tesla truck. For example, the target price is much lower than we expected:
According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the upcoming Tesla truck will have a target price of less than $ 50,000. Musk stated:
"You should be able to buy a really great truck for $ 49,000 or less."
We think it's hard to believe that this price point is even possible, but that's the goal. Here's more from Musk on the subject:
“We don't want it to be really expensive. I think it must start at under $ 50,000 – it must be like $ 49,000 starting price max. Preferably less. It just can't be prohibitive. It must be something that is reasonable. There will be versions of the truck that will be more expensive, but you must be able to get a really great truck for $ 49,000 or less. ”
We are now just a month or so away from the big Tesla truck reveal. If it looks like Musk is saying, as a future armored thinker, it will surely be the most polarizing Tesla product ever made.
