Shopping for a new pickup truck? Chevy, Ford, Dodge? Or, maybe you’d rather buy a Tesla?
If you can put off the purchase a few years, you’ll be able to do just that when Elon Musk brings his new, all-electric Tesla pickup truck to market—sometime before the end of the decade, he says.
What can AgWeb tell you about the truck so far? For one thing, it’s going to be a big truck. Musk says that Andre the Giant will be able to fit in the driver’s seat.
It will be a six-seater and have the ability to go 400 to 500 miles and “maybe even higher,” before needing a charge.
“Dual motor all-wheel-drive powertrain with dynamic suspension will be standard on the truck,” reports Fred Lambert, editor of Electrek.
Here’s a feature that will make nearly any tool-loving farmer salivate in anticipation: “The truck will have a 240-volt connection for heavy-duty tools and an air compressor to run air tools.”
