Tesla has dropped a single teaser image of its upcoming all-electric pickup truck – not once, but twice.
The Californian company showed the image at the conclusion of the Model Y’s unveiling late last week by flashing the picture on screen for a few seconds. However, no one noticed and Musk took to Twitter and posted the teaser so everyone could see it.
Musk has previously described the company’s first pickup truck as being a “really futuristic-like cyberpunk, ‘Blade Runner’ pickup truck.” Evidently, the vehicle will look quite a lot different from the Teslas we’ve become familiar with and the teaser image released seems to confirm that.

Mind you, the image is not that revealing. Looking it, it’s difficult to know exactly what we are looking at. One possibility is that we’re being offered a glimpse of the truck’s front end with a single LED headlight stretching the width of the vehicle and a flat, square-shaped hood. Some speculate that it could actually show the rear of the pickupm complete with a flat tonneau cover over the bed, instead.
Whatever the case may be, new details about the vehicle continue to emerge, including a planned launch later this year. Musk has previously stated that the vehicle will come equipped with an advanced suspension system that adjusts rear damping, rebound, and compression depending on what cargo the vehicle is carrying. Additionally, the pickup truck will include 360-degree cameras, sonar, and have the ability to parallel park automatically.
The Tesla pickup will offer seating for six people and probably have a range of between 400 and 500 miles (643 km – 804 km).
