Tesla CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that a Tesla pickup truck is coming “right after Model Y.” He said that he already has “the core design/engineering elements” in his mind and wants to bring it to market right after Model Y. Musk later added that the Tesla pickup will be “similar in size” or “slightly bigger” than a Ford F150 “to account for a really gamechanging (I think) feature I’d like to add.” Electrek reports: Musk had previously confirmed that Model Y, a small SUV or crossover built on the Model 3 platform, would be Tesla’s priority once Model 3 production is ramped up. That’s why it was surprising for Tesla to unveil the next generation Roadster at the Tesla Semi event since the vehicle was expected to come out after Model Y, which has yet to be unveiled. At the same event, Musk also released the first image of a Tesla electric pickup truck, but some people still think it’s a joke. He claimed that it was a smaller version of Tesla Semi and “a pickup truck that can carry a pickup truck.” While it sounded like a joke, Musk had previously mentioned his intention to leverage work on the Tesla Semi to create a Tesla pickup truck.
