Until the Tesla pickup arrives, we won’t know if Elon Musk’s company is capable of building a vehicle that can handle any serious off-road abuse. In the meantime, we can only dream and the following renderings by Mo Aoun are so accurate they may fool you as the real thing.
What they depict is a Model X that’s been transformed into an off-roader that wouldn’t look out of its depth at the Dakar Rally.
Sitting on raised suspension and a set of huge tires, most body panels of the electric SUV have been retained except for the front bumper. In its place, there’s a new nose with an integrated bull bar and two steel tow hooks.
To complete the off-road transformation, the Model X includes a steel cage on the roof with a LED lightbar, flared wheel arches and a spare wheel resting on a bracket over the rear window.
