CEO Elon Musk has been talking about Tesla making an all-electric pickup truck for years now, but he said that third generation vehicles, the Model 3 and Model Y, were the priority for now. When revealing his ‘Master Plan Part Deux‘, Musk confirmed that Tesla has been working on a pickup truck but that the company is still in the ‘early stages of development’.

Nonetheless, he later added that we should expect an unveiling of the concept in “6 to 9 months”, which should end up being in early to mid-2017. It is expected to be in production within the next 3 to 4 years (2019-2020).

 

Additionally, Musk did say that Tesla will likely build an all-electric cargo van on the chassis that it is developing for its pickup truck.

Tesla CYBRTRK Stories May 13, 2017

This is an Electrek Opinion piece

When Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled his product plan last year, he revealed that Tesla had an electric pickup truck in early stages of development. Musk had already been talking about Tesla making an electric pickup for a few years now, but last month he said that the company is only going to reveal it “18 to 24 months” from now.

I think there’s an argument to be made for Tesla to unveil the pickup concept early and to start taking reservations even if production is still 2 to 3 years away. expand full story

Tesla CYBRTRK Stories April 14, 2017

Tesla’s automotive business is expanding quickly and we are not only talking about the Model 3.

CEO Elon Musk’s update yesterday gives us a better idea – albeit still vague – of the timeline for those programs. expand full story

In my opinion, Tesla is currently by far the most interesting tech company to follow and 2016 was its most exciting year yet. I think the highlights are clear: Model 3 unveil event, introduction of Autopilot 2.0 on all cars, which could enable fully self-driving capability, and finally the unveiling of the solar roof products.

While 2016 was a year of unveilings, 2017 will be a year of execution for Tesla. The company plans to bring all those promising products that it unveiled in 2016 to market, and it also plans to announce a few more. expand full story

Tesla has long been a 1-car company. From when it first started production of the Roadster in 2008 to the end of the program and the start of Model S production in 2012 — and finally to last year when Tesla started delivering the Model X. The automaker has only been really producing two different models in volume for the past few months and it’s a significant accomplishment for a new automaker.

Other most recent American auto startups, like Fisker Automotive and DeLorean, all folded before they could bring a second car to market. Now Tesla plans to go from being a two-car company to have over half a dozen vehicles on the market by the end of the decade. expand full story

Elon Musk revealed his “Master Plan Part 2” for Tesla last week and one of the biggest product to be officially announced, though Tesla officials already had expressed interest in releasing such a vehicle, was a ‘Tesla Pickup Truck’. We don’t have a timeline for the release or the unveiling of the vehicle, but Musk called it “a new kind of pickup”, which of course piqued our curiosity.

For better or worse (probably better), Tesla is not the kind of automaker to release concepts that are not already scheduled for production and therefore, it’s difficult to envision what their new products will look like… expand full story

Independent design renderings show what a Tesla pickup truck could look like

Tesla’s current vehicle roadmap is fairly clear for the next few years. After unveiling the Model 3 later this month and launching it in 2017, Tesla is expected to launch a small crossover on the same platform called “Model Y”, then a next generation Roadster is expected to follow.

After the Roadster, things are not as clear, but a Tesla pickup truck is in the plans according to CEO Elon Musk.
