Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed some new details about the forthcoming Pickup Truck.
In an interview with Recode, Musk confirmed that he was “personally most excited” about the pickup truck and divulged some details about its design.
He stated that it would have a “really futuristic-like cyberpunk Blade Runner’ design.”
“I’m personally super-excited by this pickup truck.
“It’s something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time,” he said about the passion project.
“And I’ve been iterating sort of designs with Franz … It’s like I really wanted something that’s like super-futuristic cyberpunk.
Unusually, Musk said that he doesn’t mind if people don’t like the design of the first pickup truck and will probably make a “more conventional” version later down the line.
“Which, if it doesn’t … if I’m weirdly like … if there’s only a small number of people that like that truck, I guess we’ll make a more conventional truck in the future.
“But it’s the thing that I am personally most fired up about. It’s gonna have a lot of titanium.”
Describing what he was most excited about the truck he revealed that the design is “heart-stopping.”
“Well I can’t talk about the details, but it’s gonna be like a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, “Blade Runner” pickup truck.
“It’s gonna be awesome, it’s gonna be amazing.
“This will be heart-stopping. It stops my heart. It’s like, oh, it’s great.”
The Pickup is just one of a number of vehicles the carmaker is planning to reveal over the next few years.
It is also working on the Model Y, which is an SUV variant of the Model 3 and the next-generation Roadster that was unveiled at the Semi Truck’s launch last year.
Tesla’s pickup truck is unlikely to launch until after the Model Y does in 2020.
