Tesla Electric Truck: Finally a Date!

The exact date of the world premiere of Tesla's highly anticipated electric truck is now known.

On Twitter, CEO Elon Musk wrote that the "Cybertruck" (the nickname he gives him for now) will be unveiled on November 21 near the SpaceX rocket factory. It's three days after the start of the Automobility media event at the nearby Los Angeles Auto Show.

It will be very interesting to see which vehicle gets the most attention at the end of the week: the Tesla truck or the Mustang-inspired Ford electric SUV.

There is a big buzz surrounding these two models and the first promises to leave everyone speechless and turn the entire automotive industry upside down.

We've only seen sketches and images produced by fans and a few media, but it's certain that Tesla's truck will have a futuristic design. In fact, the inspiration came from the film Blade Runner... set in Los Angeles in 2019!

Musk has already mentioned a range of more than 650 kilometers, which is comparable to that of the Rivian R1T. He also talked about a vehicle that would be both a better truck than the Ford F-150 in terms of functionality and utility and a better sports car than the basic Porsche 911.

That's not all: the cab could seat six people and the body behind it would be large enough to carry another rival full-size pickup truck. And Musk once alluded to a towing capacity of 300,000 pounds.

Fortunately, we will know the truth very soon.

All that being said, don't expect Tesla's electric truck to hit the road anytime soon. For example, the new Model Y crossover unveiled last March will not go into production until the summer of 2020. 

Realistically, deliveries are expected to begin in 2021 and the company will collect deposits for reservations several months before that.
